Bowlus Unveils the World’s First All-Electric Luxury Travel Trailer

Bowlus Unveils the World’s First All-Electric Luxury Travel Trailer

Bowlus continues to be a pioneer.

The California-based company unveiled a new, all-electric model called the Volterra on Tuesday. The gorgeous trailer is the first fully battery-powered luxury RV to go into production.
The Volterra makes its debut 88 years after Hawley Bowlus first started selling the aluminum-riveted travel trailer that would go on to inspire the Airstream Clipper. The company’s latest model may sport Bowlus’s classic Streamline Moderne design, but everything else about it is thoroughly modern.

This is especially true of its battery system and power bank. The Volterra doesn’t need any fossil fuel to operate and has twice as much battery capacity as the brand’s previous range topper, the Terra Firma. Helping keep the battery at full capacity is an AeroSolar system that can charge the trailer’s battery pack while you’re cruising on the highway or parked on the campground. The setup uses ultra-efficient monocrystalline cells with PERC technology that can absorb a combined 480W of solar power. Thanks to the system you’ll be able to live off the grid indefinitely. The RV is also equipped with 20A outlets that will allow you to add 65 miles of range to your EV’s battery in a pinch.
The 27.1-foot trailer’s interior, which has real-wood walls and ceilings, may not be as revolutionary as its power and solar systems, but it’s still noteworthy. Inside the cabin you’ll find a galley with a two-burner induction cooktop, a spacious entertainment area (that can sleep two), a hotel-style en suite bathroom with a shower and a bedroom with room for a true king-size mattress. The Volterra comes with a limited-edition color scheme called La Cumbre inspired by the mountain peak located behind Santa Barbara. You can customize the fully vegan interior if you want something a little bolder, though. Other vital features—especially if you’re spending a lot of time away from the city—include a 50-gallon fresh water tank and high-speed Starlink satellite internet.

“The new Volterra will benefit customers as the perfect complement to an electric vehicle,” Geneva Long, who resurrected Bowlus in 2013, said in a statement. “You can charge your Bowlus while you drive and have a fully electric experience once you arrive, and, with Volterra’s new solar panel set up, you can live off-grid indefinitely and sleep with confidence knowing you’re helping preserve the great outdoors while you enjoy its splendor.”

Interested in the industry’s first all-electric luxury trailer? Bowlus is taking orders now through its website. The Volterra starts at $310,000, which is $25,000 more than the Terra Firma. Once complete, it will be delivered directly to you.

Bowlus’s Newest Luxury Trailer Comes With Built-In Pet Food Bowls and a Custom Bed for Fido

Bowlus’s Newest Luxury Trailer Comes With Built-In Pet Food Bowls and a Custom Bed for Fido

From fully appointed kitchens to queen-size beds to built-in offices, the new class of luxury campers and trailers has everything you need to feel right at home. But Bowlus’s latest offering takes things up a notch with a slew of features that make sure the same goes for your pets.
The California-based luxury travel trailer manufacturer has just unveiled its latest model, the limited-edition Terra Firma, which understands Fido’s important place in the family. The trailer comes with built-in food bowls, a personalized pet bed and a remote temperature control and monitoring system. That last feature may prove to be the most essential for pet owners, as it helps ensure the trailer is at a comfortable and safe temperature no matter how punishing the conditions may be outside.

The Terra Firma’s temperature system is controlled by Bowlus’s new Power Management System. Accessible through a touchscreen panel or via mobile app, the system allow you to turn on the heated floors and adjust the cabin temperature so that any person or animal inside the trailer feels warm and toasty even during the coldest months. The management system is connected to a lithium-iron-phosphate power source that offers twice the battery capacity of the company’s Endless Highways Performance Edition model and has enough juice for up to two weeks of off-the-grid living. The system can be fully charged in three to four hours and has a 100-volt external outlet so it can provide a slight charge for an EV (about 16 miles of range, according to Bowlus).
Other noteworthy features include HEPA air filters, UVC lighting, a water filtration system, GPS tracking, a smart brake controller and a hitch that can be connected to any vehicle in under 60 seconds. As with its other models, Bowlus offers a slew of customizable interior options so you can personalize your sleeping, kitchen and bathroom layout. And, as always, the 26-foot trailer features the company’s trademark teardrop design and has been covered in aerospace-grade aluminum for that classic Road Chief look. Finally, the Terra Firma weighs in at less than 3,200 pounds, meaning its light enough to be towed by an EV.

“We are persistently working to find new ways to elevate the luxury land travel experience with elements that effortlessly enhance life’s precious moments,” Bowlus founder and CEO Geneva Long said in a statement. “The Terra Firma edition continues the Bowlus tradition of bringing new technologies to the RV industry without adding more technology for technology’s sake.”

As you may have guessed, the Terra Firma’s many features won’t come cheap. The luxe trailer starts at $265,000. The manufacturer is currently taking orders, with deliveries expected to begin sometime next year.
