Mercedes 2635 6x2, the Rollong Hotel in Abu
Like always, I always stop and try to peek into every interesting vehcile I come across. I have seen this bus couple of times before, it comes to Abu every year to visit Delwara Temples. but this time I had a chance to stop and click some images. Too bad the driver was too tired, I thought not to disturb him from his well deserved sleep.
This particular example is owned by Rotel Tours, a german company. Rotel is a combination of Rolling and Hotel. I guess this 6x2 is based in India only. They are using our JK tyres.
Enjoy! Sorry could not click the inside of the vehicle.
Air tank, Air Cleaner etc
Tyres, JK made in India
Cabin and Sleepy driver
Following images are from Rotel Website, this particlular living area never made it to Abu, I guess they left somewhere else.

I came across this in 2007 on Delhi-Agra Highway.
and then again on Tiny streets of Agra
While on the move it was easily doing 3 digit speeds.
and its a LHD.
and it was driven by foreigners that time.
With those REG plates,Is it on Carnet?

When we visited ABU for the first time many years ago ( approx 8 years ) at a popular destination for carving on wall and everything architectural namely " Delvara na Dera " ( spelling could be wrong ), I saw a Mercedez-Benz tractor haulinga a huge trailer that was a bus. It was magnificient in size. I dont know if it was this or not.
Again it was also carrying forigen tourists.
Edit : I read in thread starter's post that it was Delvara temples only.! ).

That's a MASSIVE bus and a left hand drive at that!! I would have safety reservations when this bus is travelling on a typical Indian highway, how will he overtake?
On the positive side, I am sure it is mighty comfortable. Seems to be loaded with a kitchenette et all.
