The Rust Bucket 2 is Max Tennyson's replacement RV, obtained after its predecessor was destroyed. It is outfitted with much of the same Plumbers' technology as the original, including jet propulsion and advanced laser weaponry.


It is nearly identical in appearance to the first Rust Bucket, but is missing the satellite dishes and atenna from its roof. The Rust Bucket 2 also has blue-tinted windows, whereas the old Rust Bucket's windows were black-tinted.


Main Timeline

In Ben 10: Omniverse, the Rust Bucket 2 appears in the flashback events that were about Ben, Gwen, and Grandpa Max defeating any of the terrestrial and extraterrestrial threats that they encountered as well as going on adventures during the weekend trips that they had for a year.

The Rust Bucket 2 has a small bathroom located toward the rear of the vehicle. It is seen in Ben 10 Returns: Part 1 when Ben was looking for Max.


The bedroom is located at the rear of the vehicle. When Gwen and Ben were on their road trips, Ben slept on the upper bed while Gwen slept on the lower bed. When not used for sleeping, the beds stow away and the bedroom converts to a lounge area with a U-shaped couch and coffee table.


The Rust Bucket 2 has a kitchenette on the left side of the vehicle, opposite of the entry door. Next to the door on the right side is a small, two-seat dinette table. Max prepares meals, most of which Ben and Gwen don't like.
