The Rust Bucket is Max Tennyson's RV. It is kitted with a lot of Plumbers' gear, which includes a lasers and jets. Despite having post-space age weapons and capabilities, the Rust Bucket has a faulty toilet and a broken air conditioner. It was destroyed sometime before the events of the flashbacks in Omniverse and replaced by the Rust Bucket 2.

History

Main Timeline

Original Series

In The Visitor, the Rust Bucket gets blown into pieces, and was able to be reassembled in less than one full day.

In Ben 4 Good Buddy, it is shown that various clicks and button pushing can create a type of effect to the Rust Bucket, such as firing ice cubes or making the hydraulics turn on.

The Rust Bucket in Ben 10,000

In Ben 10,000, the Rust Bucket is upgraded with new advanced hi-technology. The inside also looks quite bright. The RV can also fly. A door in the Rust Bucket also leads to a chamber which contains the Null Void Projector which had to be moved due to Dr. Animo's actions.

In Race Against Time

The first time the Rust Bucket appeared in the movie was after Heatblast "destroyed" Eon and the theme song came on. The Rust Bucket was blown to pieces by Eon later in the movie.
