Sweet ass bus

It used to be parked on a side street in Dot. It's pretty badass.
Pretty stylish if you ask me, esp. compared to what they're building today.

I agree. The bus itself is pretty cool, lots of windows. I'm not very fond of the color scheme but the bus rocks!

Deadhead baby boomers with financial nest eggs can now afford the upgrade their old VW vans they drove when they were hippies.

That is the first thing I thought

That is the first thing I thought when I saw it. The Phutney Creech Land Yacht is from the FFB 1990 issue #11. Rip Off Press lives up to it's name.

The Peacemaker II

By on

Owned by The Twelve Tribes, providing medical services at concerts, etc.

A handful of surviving Aerocoaches can be found today in the hands of private enthusiasts and museums (AACA in Hershey, PA). However you’re much more likely to encounter one of the two Aerocoach-sourced GM Motor Coaches, named Peacemaker I and Peacemaker II, which tour the country as part of the outreach mission of The Twelve Tribes, an international messianic religious group founded by Elbert Eugene Spriggs in 1972.

The buses and their on-board EMTs provide complimentary medical care at large public gatherings and concerts (Phish, My Morning Jacket, Dark Star, Ratdog, The Other Ones, Bob Dylan, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart etc.) frequented by Dead Heads.....

That bus belongs to the Twelve Tribes. They've been providing first aid at Dead and Phish shows since at least the 80s.
What they won't tell you is how their organization is actually religious cult that likes to prey on/recruit hippies who are under the influence.

I had a number of encounters with them in my younger years and I've actually been inside that bus.
