It's about that time to pack up the coolers and bug spray and head to your favorite campground.
But instead of loading up into your average motorhome like every other American family, why not roll up in a state-of-the-art recreational vehicle and make everyone else char their hot dogs as they stare in awe. We came up with a list of some the most awesome and outrageous RV's there are, from hand-crafted nostalgia to a vehicle perfect for hunting wolves in the Mongolian mountains. There is nothing left to be desired for the absolutely perfect road trip. Buckle up kids, its time to hit the open road in style with these 10 Awesome RVs.
Country Coach Veranda
We'll start off with this standard top-of-the-line motorhome. There's one thing that makes this house on wheels stand out, though: a super dope porch. You're bound to be the coolest on the campground.
The EarthRoamer is what every modern-day explorer needs. Fit for the back roads of the wildest jungle, this Jeep-based ride is ready to conquer any road untravelled. With kitchen and queen bed included, there's no reason to ever turn back. However, when you do return to reality, the compact size of the XV-JP won't leave you struggling to find a place to park back home.
Mercedes Benz Zetros
At first glance the Zetros looks like a boring cargo truck used to haul grimey drillers to a test site in middle-of-nowhere Texas. In reality, they're used as off-road military vehicles in disaster relief and peace-keeping situations. At least, that was until two Mongolian businessmen, one a brewery owner and the other a mining entrepreneur ordered a pimped-our custom pair of the six-wheel-drive monsters. They had the trucks fully luxed out to ensure absolute comfort as they carried on with their favorite hobby of hunting wolves by eagle in the Mongolian wilderness. Yes, you heard right, hunting wolves using an eagle.
Equipped with flat screens, heated floors, and a Bose sound system, you'd never even know you were in the mountains living in this thing. As for power, the Zetros runs a 7.2-liter inline-six diesel engine with 326 horsepower and 960 pound-feet of torque. When these dudes want to venture into the cold, there is a compartment in the rear to keep the ATV. What a perfect combination of roughing it and living large at the same damn time.
The Mobil is a fine German specimen, one of the most technically sophisticated and stylish RVs on the market. Of course, in true German fashion, Volkner thought to put a garage in the basement for your sports car. Depending on what you drive, a few different garage set ups, like one for your Smart car, are offered. If you're a brand snob and you want a camper with the quality German engineering, this is your ride.
The Kingsley Coach is your classic semi-turned-motorhome on steroids. Surely a truck driver's dream, this cowboy Cadillac might set you back a few hundred thousand, but everyone will know you've got the biggest pair of cajones on the freeway. You're guaranteed tenure as king of the road.
Terra Wind Amphibious RV
We did a list of amphibious cars, so it's only right we included an amphibious RV. Why rent a separate pontoon boat when you can own a camper that loves to swim? Oh, maybe because the Terra Wind will pry $850,000 from your stubborn fingers.
You are sure to turn heads at the campground in this luxurious behemoth, in which a jacuzzi and champagne come standard. It's up to you to supply the women. When the Futuria first debuted in 2010 with the appropriate name for its ridiculously futuristic looks, the company likes to call it "avant-garde in motion." Like the Volkner, the Futuria also stunts a nice garage that houses a Gumpert Apollo. Our favorite feature might be the LED-speckled mirrored ceiling that leaves the impression of a starry night. Though, you could probably just step outside the door for that. This exclusive desirable RV comes at a price of around 850,000 big ones. But hey, it ain't trickin', if you got it.
Although the company likes to call this a "luxury 4x4," Dunkel was obviously thinking bigger than your average Cayenne or Range Rover with this Ford F-650-based behemoth. The website states, "Dunkel industries was built on the childhood dream of never having to stop because the trail was 'more than the RV could handle.'" So, they created the magnum opus of recreational vehicles to go where no RV has gone before.
This truck is so big, there's enough room for your off-road toys, including a Jeep Wrangler, on the roof. It also includes a firewood box, a shower, camp seating built into the running boards, and ample storage bins around the entire vehicle. Don't be frightened by the $7,000 worth of line-x. This rugged beast still keeps it classy with custom wood, leather, and fiberglass interior to make the two queen-size and single full-size sleepers feel at home. With a motorhome like this who needs a campground? The company encourages you to go claim your very own part of the planet in this extreme vehicle that will finally get you there.
This Austrian creation definitely has a face only a mother could love, but as the cliche goes, it's what's on the inside that counts. This monstrous machine is advertised as the “new premium class of luxurious vehicles, targeted to lovers of extravagance and visionary style”. If Captain Lone Starr and Barf of Spaceballs got an upgrade from their Eagle 5 Winnebago, this would be it. Complete with roof terrace, bar, and lounge; the Marchi is an unorthodox display of luxury.
You might hate looking at it, but you'll love the mansion-like interior. Lift furniture, surveillance cameras, lighting, heating, and cooling is all controlled with the push of a button. Some of our favorite features are the spa bathroom with rainfall shower, illuminated marble and wood, and functional fire place. Don't expect to be accepted by true campers in this thing, though. They'll be giving you stranger looks than when we watched Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie try out the simple farm life.
Blastonlene Deco Liner
Jay Leno enjoying the view!
This motorhome is truly a one-of-a-kind masterpiece created from scratch by famous master hot rodder Randy Grubb. The DecoLiner was originally inspired by a house boat that had a functional flying bridge, meaning you had your choice of driving from up top or in the main cabin down below. Exercising his structural automotive genius, Randy began his project with a special 1978 GMC motorhome chassis. Randy and his Blastolene Garage, who take pride in creating drivable sculptures, took over 5,000 hours building this ode to yesteryear.
In addition to being built completely out of hand-crafted aluminum, other unique features include a teak wood staircase to the upper deck and incredible portholes made of retro hand-blown glass. The 455 Oldsmobile engine is right under the driver's seat for easy access. This '50s revival motorhome, which was once featured on Jay Leno's Garage, is a true testament to a dying metal work craft. CHeck out Blastolene to see full documentation and pictures of the project from start to finish.
