As I mentioned, the classic campers of the 60s were all built upon a wooden frame. Well, after 50 years or more of technological advancements, RVs can now be created from more structurally sound materials; in the case of these habitats, that material is aluminum. The entire chassis and frame, too, are put together using welded aluminum tubes and set upon a torsion axle.
What does this result in? It should result in a habitat that isn’t left at the mercy of the elements. If that’s not enough, consider the array of other composite materials used. A one-piece V-Lite floor is in place, and while the interior paneling is built out of wood, the exterior shell is not; as if to pay homage to the classic camper styling, aluminum is king on the exterior too.
Once everything has been put in its place, the result is mobile habitats like the ones you see in the gallery. The exterior showcases the aluminum paneling for all the world to see and will also protect the interior, while a massive wrap-around view is set up using curved glass. I can’t wait to see the world from the inside.
slightly smaller unit, 24-foot (7.3-meter) and 18-foot (5.5-meter) options are available.
As you should have expected, inside these puppies, the glass enclosure I mentioned sits right above the dining area. Talk about meals with a view, away from lurking bears and other wildlife. Best of all, this space also transforms into a sleeping area, and that could be a problem for you and your family; you’ll probably have several discussions during your trip as to who sleeps here and when. I would simply write my name on one of the cushions to clear things up ahead of time.
Towards the opposite end of the trailer, you’ll pass by a galley setup that looks as modern as the one in my old studio apartment; no vintage touches here, and I’m thankful for that. Even the bathroom is up-to-date with current trends, featuring a polished sink and faucet, shower/tub, toilet, and vanity.
your adventures, and outside the unit, drawbar storage appears to be an option. Sounds like more than enough for your things.
However, when I look at a travel trailer, I want it to also include off-grid abilities. Since the manufacturer’s website doesn’t say much about water tanks, systems, and/or solar power, you may need to call them up to find out just how far you can take one of these units.
Speaking of taking things far, I was also pressed hard to find prices for new units. However, the average Holiday House RV that is up for sale after one ownership is typically going for rates around $65,000 (€63,500 at current exchange rates). Considering how much a camper’s value can drop after usage, you should expect new machines to be sold for around $85K or more, depending on their features. I’m sure there are reasons for this, and the answers are out there. Now, start exploring because summer is almost gone.
