A German based touring company which operates world wide with an interesting range of vehicles. Rotel is short for "rolling hotel". It's a cross between a coach, a caravan and a hostel. See the website below for details.

It's presumed the original Mercedes Benz O303-3 (normal everyday coach) still exists, which used to run in tandem with a number of different Mercedes Benz 6x2 trucks that were built as traveling accommodation, eg. they had the bunks for the overnight accommodation and used to travel ahead to each nightly stop, while the coach was used for the transport during the day. However the coach has not been seen for a number of years. This may have been transferred to another country's operation?

It's not known where the operation is actually based. Various places such as Seaton in Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne have been reported. Possibly Brisbane, given all the coaches are on QLD rego.
