    Because they can.
    It's not to every bodies taste.
    Better then being scrapped.

    These are a good compromise between a camper, RV and a caravan.

    A lot more room in a snail compared to a camper and a lot easier to drive compared to some of the monster RV’s.
    And you are not towing a caravan

    Agreed, you wouldn’t chop up a pristine tin top microbus, but like in the thread I posted, if it’s a rusty wreck, this is a good solution.

    If I had spare space to have one parked up when not in use, I would be happy to roll in one.

    Any idea what happened to Nug's Snail Barry?Think I saw it up for sale after they got back from their trip.
    The build thread and the videos were great. The setup was so good, better than a Jurgens Autovilla. :cool:

    These are a franchise - they are rented out by their owners.

    I think the owners are game renting out these buses. So much could go wrong, by careless renters, with their investment….:eek:

    no different to someone renting out a high end sports car I guess

    They have your details and I’m sure the fine print stitches them up.

    At a $1,000 a week I don’t think they are appealing to back packers.

    As said, I would roll in one
