With the growing number of busses converted into motorhomes traveling around Australia, more and more of these custom coach motorhomes are being driven by younger families. Our current build at Majestic Motorhomes is a double slide out coach motorhome for a family from the Gold Coast and we are excited to be helping them to make their dreams come true.
Packing up the traditional ‘fixed address’ lifestyle is a typical occurrence for our grey adventurers out there but for families with younger children, hitting the road takes a little more planning. For one thing, there are more people. Grey nomads typically travel in ones and twos but a family means more people to accommodate with power, water, sleeping and dining quarters.
While long term travel is possible in a C class motorhome, it can be a little tricky space wise. For this reason, many families opt for a caravan setup which offers the versatility of having a family car along for the journey. The down side is that these kinds of setups are often tethered to caravan parks as caravans are not really setup for long term free camping.
Another option for the intrepid traveling family is a purpose built, custom coach motorhome. When you live in a magnificent home on wheels, every day is a brand new adventure and a coach or bus converted to a motorhome can deliver a huge living area for multiple people to live in comfort. Of course a 4×4 or car can be easily towed behind and free camping approach is a cinch when you have acres of under floor storage for such things as battery banks, water storage and other creature comforts.
Like our first ever wheel chair accessible motorhome built last
year and currently traveling up North, this motorhome is a first for Majestic Motorhomes in that it is the first purpose built coach motorhome we are building for a family.
The coach itself is a Denning Landseer and came to us from the Gold Coast. It has has had a life near salt water so there was some rust work required before we could begin the conversion but the boys at Majestic took this in their stride and were soon reframing, roof raising and beginning work on two spacious slide outs.
This motorhome will be part home, part classroom, part picture window for children who are going to have the whole of Australia as their new learning environment as well as having break out spaces and much needed parents retreat. It will be an exciting build.
Imagine the excitement of each day fishing, hiking, exploring towns and attractions, meeting new people and learning hands on in one of the worlds most vast and beautiful countries. Imagine following the weather as your fancy takes you. Summer all year round or cooler climates are all options on the table.
Over the next few months, we will continue to update this page, adding pictures and notes about the family coach motorhome as it progresses so check back often and also join in the discussion on our Facebook Page – we look forward to having you join us here online as we work on towards the warmer months and one families big day where they get to take delivery of their new home and hit the road.
If you are inspired by this (and our other customers stories) and want to live an extraordinary life living in a custom built coach motorhome, we welcome your call or email anytime!
