$500K ‘Living Vehicle’ Luxury Trailer Redefines Off-Grid Glamping

This ‘trailer’ boasts big features, big energy savings, and big upgrades, but it also comes at a big price.

Living Vehicle’s eponymous LV 2022 trailer looks more like a modern house on the inside than your typical trailer or RV. The “luxury residence,” coming to market in 2022, will be the brand’s most high-tech and most luxurious model yet.

The Living Vehicle 2022 has the capacity for two bedrooms, solar air conditioning, a home theater, skylights, a bidet, automatic lowering indoor/outdoor deck, and oh-so-many more comforts you wouldn’t even find in most freestanding homes.

We could go on about the maybe “extra” features like heated towel racks, floor-to-ceiling closets, 24-hour off-grid air conditioning, and a Tesla charging station, but we won’t.

We’ll let you take a tour inside this four-season, luxury home — starting at $250,000, ranging up to $500,000! — on wheels first to see for yourself just how luxurious a trailer can be.

“We designed Living Vehicle with freedom in mind, granting travelers the ability to experience every corner of the country and stay connected and comfortable along the way,” co-founder Matthew Hofmann said.

“Our new 2022 Living Vehicle builds on the success of our past models, while enabling owners to travel even further and truly live sustainably.”

Living Vehicle Sustainability and Energy

The 2022 Living Vehicle is powered by electricity, everywhere you look. It’s one of the selling points for the brand in making these luxury homes off-grid.

“The ability to recharge and store electricity for off-grid use is the basis for freedom from the grid and extending off-grid travel,” the founders wrote. Perks of solar power on this trailer include off-grid air conditioning and a solar-powered sunshade.

Even without upgrade packages, the 2022 LV base model offers more than twice the power of the 2021 model.

Power features include:

  • Solar Power System: 1,320-3,520 watts of solar capacity
  • Solar-powered air conditioning
  • Solar-powered electric refrigerator
  • Additional energy storage: 14.4-57.6 kWh storage
