The RV lifestyle is never complete without a tiny car to drive around once the big beast is set up in a perfect parking spot. Plenty of people tow Geo Metros or Jeep Wranglers behind their rigs, but one clever motorhome owner has gone a step beyond and built a tiny garage into the RV itself.
Photos for an eBay listing titled simply "1981 Eagle" show a massive bus that's been converted into a motorhome, plus a customized 1972 Honda Z600 that slides right in under the passenger living room area, right where luggage might otherwise go on a Greyhound. The kei-class Z600 has received a top chop, and now rides as a microscopic roadster, but the reduced weight should help it to feel a bit peppier despite its air-cooled, two-cylinder engine.
The seller claims the tiny car will cruise happily at 55-60 miles per hour, though it seems like potential buyers might be wise to wear a helmet if they choose to take the Honda on the highway. After all, the car is lightweight enough to drive up into the bus's underbelly on just a couple of 2x12 planks, it seems.
The Ebay listing may have ended today after the ad made the rounds on the internet, and hopefully the seller got his asking price of $39,900—more importantly, hopefully the buyer decided to shell out an extra $5,500 to take the Honda home along with it. The seller sounds to be a confident, knowledgable RV expert, claiming that he's sold and worked on buses just like this one for many years.
Custom touches on the RV include a rebuild in 1996 that included lengthening the body by five feet, raising the roof by nine inches, and a six-inch widening job, as well. Then in 1999, the seller installed a factory-rebuilt Detroit Diesel 8V92 crate engine, which has since run around 95,000 more miles. Interior amenities include electric heating, a full-size fridge and ice maker, as well as a whirlpool tub and shower.
