Bowlus Road Chief has released a new, super-luxurious and streamlined modern-style Endless Highways travel trailer. Fusing classic Art Deco aesthetics with the latest technology, this trailer may be the ideal way to traverse the American continent…or to save on rent while residing in the Googleplex parking lot.

Thanks to all-aluminum monocoque construction, the Endless Highways trailer weighs just 3,300 lbs, making it light enough to tow with a crossover. A Bluetooth-monitored power management system employs 4.0-kWh lithium-ion phosphate batteries, which can allow full operation of the appliances on battery power for up to a week — or deliver a four-hour blast from the 10,000-BTU air conditioner. A storable 120-watt solar panel is available to add to the power capacity. The Endless Highways comes equipped with a 2,000-watt “pure sine-wave inverter” that can boost the 120-volt AC power from 15 to 30 amps. And for those who want to leave the grid literally, but not figuratively, the trailer also has an embedded 3G/4G modem to provide a private wifi network.

The cabin offers ample space for couples with two twin beds that can merge into a full king, as well as his and her wardrobes. The hotel-style en suite bathroom has insulated privacy doors and teak flooring and seating in the shower. The kitchen features a 12-volt fridge/freezer, a battery-powered microwave, a two-burner Italian cooktop, and stainless steel countertops. The seating area can accommodate another two sleepers.

All this doesn’t come cheap, mind you: The base price for an Endless Highways trailer is $185,000. That’s a $48,000 jump over Bowlus Road Chief’s On the Road trailer and more than the cost of a decently optioned Porsche 911 Turbo. (On the flip side, financing starts at $942 per month.) Still, if you’re truly ready to embrace that mobile life, this trailer would be nicer and far less costly than housing in a number of American cities.
