Innovative motorhome

Today we are going to take a dip into traveling with the comforts of home. We present you a selection of unique motorhomes.

Dembell – a palace on wheels with a built-in garage

The world’s most expensive motorhome even from the outside looks more like a palace. The manufacturer Dembell Motorhome M describes its creation as “the dream home of a discerning gentleman and his gentle lady”. This somewhat pathetic statement is quite appropriate, since we are talking about a palace for 1 million and 250 thousand euros.
The motor home is equipped with a garage in the rear compartment, inside there is a separate master bedroom and a shower compartment. In the cabin there are four seats at once, two of which turn into the salon and become part of the living room.

The kitchen, fully equipped with Miele appliances including dishwasher, induction hob and oven, also features a large fridge and freezer.

To some, the price of a motorhome will seem completely unreasonable. But such things are rarely bought as a primary dwelling – rather, it is a toy for the rich.

Motorhome from the designer of the legendary DeLorean DMC-12

Unexpectedly, we learned that in the late 80’s in the U.S. sold a house on wheels from the designer of the legendary “time machine” DeLorean DMC-12. And only 376 of them were collected.

The 6.5-meter Vixen 21 TD has a small kitchen, full sleeping places, a lot of closets and a bathroom. There is also a partially raised roof, which allowed you to walk around the camper in full height in the parking lot.

The 6.5-meter Vixen 21 TD has a small kitchen, full sleeping places, many closets and a bathroom. There’s also a partially raised roof, which allowed you to walk around the camper full-length in the parking lot.

Converted into modern money, a new Vixen 21 TD cost about $120,000, and now rare lots at auction can be found for $12,000 to $25,000.

Pebble Flow

The California brand Pebble (not the one that made smartwatches) has introduced a motorhome trailer that can drive itself and even push cars to save fuel.

Thanks to its motor-wheels, the camper can also move when unhitched: in this mode, it is controlled via smartphone. The Pebble Flow can also hitch itself to the car and change the transparency of the windows and shower stall with a click.

A 45 kWh battery is built into the chassis, which powers the electric motors as well as all the technology inside. It can be charged either from the electric car charger or from the solar panel on the roof. In addition, the camper can give back energy by working as a backup power source.

Sales of the Pebble Flow will begin later this year. The price is from $109,000.

Volkswagen’s double decker motorhome California

Volkswagen has revealed its coolest camper yet – the California double-decker minivan.
It has sliding doors on both sides, so the kitchen can be used both inside and outside – there is a stove, refrigerator and grill. The front seats unfold into the cabin, and the rear seats turn into a bed. Another sleeping place under the retractable roof on the servo drive.

SOD off-road motorhome

German firm SOD has built an off-road motorhome based on a Mercedes-Benz Arocs 8×6 truck, which is mainly used on construction sites.

The length of the living module is 7.5 meters. At the side there is a retractable veranda with a sofa and awning, and at the back there is a platform for an ATV. Inside there is a living room, a bedroom, a kitchenette and a bathroom with white marble finish and underfloor heating.

The truck is powered by a 578-horsepower diesel engine, and there are 1.6-kilowatt solar panels and a 150-amp generator to provide power. There is also a 1,000-liter fresh water tank and a 16-liter boiler.

The cost of the camper starts at €1.7 million. A shorter 6×6 version is also available, priced from €1.5 million.

ELE ultra-protected motorhome trailer

Mammoth Overland has built an ultra-secure ELE motorhome trailer – it’s practically a bunker on wheels. It has an armored body, a bear-proof system, a built-in Geiger counter, and all-around night vision cameras.

There’s a sealed door at the entrance, and the inside is kept over-pressurized to keep poisonous substances and gases out. Plus there’s a medical-grade air purification system.

If predators approach, a special spray is sprayed around the camper at the touch of a button to scare them away with a disgusting odor.

There’s also Starlink satellite internet, a sunroof that can be used to launch a drone for reconnaissance, a radio, weather station and a kitchen with a two-burner stove and sink in the rear of the camper.

In the U.S., the base version costs $67,000, and bulletproof cladding can be ordered for an additional $25,000.

Motorhome as a flash drive

New Zealand firm W2 has built an unusual rotating motorhome Romotow T8 in the form of a USB stick. The living module unfolds 90 degrees, and the part that remains in place can be used as a covered terrace.

The length of the trailer is 9.3 meters. In the rounded front part there is a dining area with two sofas and a transformer table that converts into a sleeping area.

The kitchen is available in two configurations: with two counters and a mini-fridge under the countertop, or with one counter and a full tall refrigerator. A sink and gas stove are built into the counters. A 300-liter water tank and Truma Combi water heater are standard.

Behind the kitchen is an L-shaped bathroom with corner toilet, sink and shower, and at the very end of the living module, a double bedroom is placed behind a door.

The appliances are powered by a 200 Ah lithium battery charged by 395 W roof-mounted solar panels, but a version with a more powerful battery and panels can be ordered. Also optional are a wall-mounted 32-inch 4K TV, an outdoor projector with a retractable 82-inch screen, and a Fusion multi-zone sound system.

Pricing for the trailer starts at $268,000.

Maxus Everest motorhome

The Chinese have built a cozy two-story motorhome Maxus Everest – with a telescopic lifting roof and a folding balcony in the rear.

The total area of the living area is 18 square meters. On the first floor there is a kitchen and a bathroom, and on the first floor there is a bedroom with a lounge area and a projector. Already in the base there are all the necessary appliances, underfloor heating and a water filtration and heating system.

The truck has an 8.7-liter diesel engine with an output of 330 horsepower, six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The 300-liter gas tank is enough for one thousand kilometers, but you can order a version with a 600-liter tank for two thousand kilometers.

The cost of Maxus Everest starts from 2.9 million yuan. For a surcharge, customers can order a customized finish and retrofit the motorhome with additional equipment.
