A First Look At The 2021 Living Vehicle Luxury Travel Trailer
Two terms RVers wouldn’t typically combine together are “luxury” and “off-grid,” but the creators of Living Vehicle have managed to engineer a product that epitomizes such a relationship. Introducing the new 2021 Living Vehicle Luxury Trailer Trailer, an RV that blends modern design with self-sufficient advancements for the ultimate glamping experience.
“To enjoy true off-grid living, access to reliable energy is a necessary and life-sustaining resource for safety, health and comfort,” Living Vehicle co-founder and CMO Joanna Hofmann said. “Our customers value the flexibility to avoid RV parks and stay anywhere with all the luxury comforts of shore power.”
2021 Living Vehicle General Specifications
The Living Vehicle Luxury Travel Trailer series comes in three different models: the $229,995 Core, $289,995 Max, and $369,995 Pro.
They share many features. All models measure 32 feet 8 inches from hitch to bumper and have a fresh water tank capacity of 100 gallons. (Living Vehicle provides more detailed specifications on each model.) The only significant difference between the three are the weights and power systems.
With a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 16,000 lbs for the CORE model and 18,000 for the Pro, a full-size truck with a ¾ or 1-ton configuration is recommended. Living Vehicles suggests adding another 3,000 lbs to the model’s GVWR to account for the passengers and additional gear.
If a customer is wanting to optimize their off-roading, 4-season travel experience, the company advises on purchasing a tow vehicle with a diesel engine and a 4×4 set-up.
The Core, Max, and Pro models are powered by Volta Power Systems’ lithium-ion battery. This power system also acts as an electric vehicle charger. Out of all three models, the Pro maxes out at 3,080 watts of solar and 47,600 watt-hours of energy storage. Volta lithium-ion systems lead the market with this high capacity of energy storage available in luxury trailers.
“With the continued disruption of COVID-19, advanced energy is helping us reimagine what’s possible for adventure, safety, and everyday life,” said Volta Power Systems founder and CEO Jack Johnson. “More than any other trailer on the market, Living Vehicle uses the Volta system to its fullest capability, creating an off-grid experience never before possible.”
Exterior features of the 2021 Living Vehicle
Aluminum and stainless steel components make up the exterior of these luxury travel trailers. This sturdy, durable shell is meant to keep up with detours. For additional handling of rough and tumble terrain, off-road capable wheels and a four-inch lift are available as upgrades.
The insulated unit is rated as a 4-season travel trailer. To ensure continued, optimal functioning, all sensitive systems, including power, water, and other technology, are protected in the lower compartment or basement where the temperature is regulated.
Large windows, skylights, and a glass sliding door bring in plenty of natural light. RV owners can get some fresh air, eat a meal, read a book, finish some work, or enjoy the company of others on their fold-out deck.
Interior features of the 2021 Living Vehicle
Living Vehicle made sure to add all of the creature comforts and conveniences of home in their “luxury apartment” on wheels. The floors are waterproof and have an anti-scratch coating for anyone bringing along their furry family members.
Plenty of storage options allow all kinds of belongings to be tucked away. Plus, a huge list of upgrades, like a washer/dryer unit, central vacuum system, and dishwasher, might be over the top options to some people, but they make a dream RV to others.
The bedroom includes a queen-sized bed, closet/drawer space, and a skylight. There is also an option to add an office area to the room. The set up includes a Murphy-type bed that folds up to reveal a workstation fit for two.
A second queen bed is made by rearranging the dining table and cushions. If four sleeping spots are not enough for your family and friends, an optional full bed can be installed from the ceiling. It comes down by pushing a button.
The “spa-style” bathroom includes a mold-resistant rainfall shower. To conserve water, the customer has a few options with the toilet: (1) a water-saving electric toilet with a bidet or (2) a composting toilet. If the customer opts for the composting toilet, they also have the option to get a larger grey water tank. Upgrades also include a 12-volt towel and bathroom heater.
Along with lots of cabinets and drawers, the kitchen comes with a movable island, pull-out trash can, pantry, sink, and refrigerator. RVers can upgrade their cooking arena with a three-burner range and oven, glass cooktop, ice maker, and wine cooler. They can also have a water sterilizer and air purifier installed.
