Clown car

How many adults can fit into an RB-50? Yesterday, while driving Hwy 12 near Escalante, Utah, we ran across a group of hikers whose E-350 passenger van had died of transmission problems right in the middle of the narrow two lane highway. We stopped to help and ended up hauling everyone 15 miles to their campsite. So how many people can fit into an RB-50? 14 adults and a dog. Oh, and they all had sizable daypacks and trekking poles. Now we've got 12 new best friends.

I had 28 in my van once for several hours after the sprinter driving with us puked its transmission in southern Oregon. I had to initially tow it and it's trailer to the next rest area to get it off the freeway, then we transferred everybody and their boats to my rig for he drove home

I maxed out at 12 once, shuttling some hikers. They weren't super comfortable.
