It Just Happens to Have Wheels

The Bowlus Road Chief Is Your New Dream Apartment

August 24, 2018 Cars By Photo by Bowlus

The world of travel trailers is just as remarkable as its off-road counterpart. What the on-road behemoths lack in go-anywhere capabilities, they make up for with an unimaginable level of luxury, design and beauty. Case in point: the brand new Bowlus Road Chief.

Starting at $137,000, or $739 a month, the Road Chief already sounds more enticing than a standard Manhattan apartment. Go through the list of creature comforts — heated floors, cell service booster, two-burner Italian cooktop — and it’s also apparent it’s it’ll beat the city living space on the luxury front too. When you step up to the Endless Highways edition, the price jumps to $219,000 or $1,156 a month, which, again, considering the all the potential front porch views easily beats the concrete jungle.

For the extra $82,000, the Endless Highways edition gets wood flooring, built-in wifi, a Lithium-iron-phosphate battery good for seven days on one charge, a storable 120W Solar Panel and an aluminum front porch among a whole host of material upgrades.

It won’t be able to handle rougher mountain passes like a dedicated overland trailer, but the mirror finish aircraft-grade aluminum shell and 3,500lbs (Endless Highway edition) mean most medium-sized SUVs and trucks can handle the task of towing it. It might seem like a massive financial mission, but if you’re house hunting and can’t decide on a neighborhood, or timezone for that matter, you could save a few hundred thousand dollars and just pick up one of these for a jet age house on wheels.
