Off grid, like dry camping in a state park, or off grid like the back 1/4 section of your 10,000 acre ranch? Because it's a big trailer, so not like it's practical to get way up into the back country somewhere.
Looks like another one of the super expensive pipe dream type campers that virtually noone can afford or will buy.'

And you have a "green" camper that still has a Ram truck towing it....
Love the style and creativity, but these aren't campers, they're centerpieces for the ultra rich's collections of overpriced "exotic" c rap.

With starting prices between $250k and $430k before "luxury" add ons.....

Thanks for sharing, but I just have to laugh at some of these concepts. Maybe I'll eat my words in the future on this one, but doubt it. Unless the company is just a tax shelter for a rich investor/owner...then they may actually build some campers.

On the surface it looks like it is build off of a cargo camper, but I suspect it is a purpose built shell - the slanted floor at the rear is not like any cargo trailer I have seen.
Nice to see some substance to an RV roof, again like a cargo trailer, and not the thin pathetic coverings as you get on an RV roof... I have never heard of a cargo trailer having leaky roofs.

I like the deployable solar that doubles as a tiny awning.

Didnt have time to study the site, so Im still curious how these are built.

With empty weights starting at 12,000 lbs and GVWR starting at 16,000, You wont be pulling this with your Tesla, not even with the mythical Cybertruck.
And at a 16000 lb tow weight, tongue will start on the little one in 3/4 ton ranges at 1600 - 2000 lbs.

The amount of solar and storage would make it possible to run AC off the batteries, for at least a limited period, but it appears they put a standard 15k btuh unit on the roof, seems silly they didn't use a high efficiency SEER 18 mini split to conserve energy.

Tank sizes seem good, but I wonder if getting the optional battery upgrade cost you tank capacity due to either weight, or underbelly space.

Either way, this looks like a great bragging piece for those with more Dollars than Sense.

Max, Core and Pro models. Look the same to me. 2918 used Max costs $250k and they go up from there.

It looks like the jazzy intro video was shot on the Santa Barbara coast, northwest of Goleta. I hope the trailer had some excellent sound-proofing -- they camped right next to some very active train tracks!

The problem with owning such a beautiful trailer is that you don't want to take it off-pavement and get it scratched up by the thorn bushes. My little "un-beautiful" trailer is a mass of "Sierra pinstripes," and that's ok with me.

What a nice array of solar panels -- wow!!

Reminds me of a delicatessen in stainless steel. I do see a bed with an attractive female reclining on it.

nice unit, but the starting prices are a little out to unch in my opinion. if it was under say 100K for the pro I bet they would sell like hot cakes.

Did anybody else notice that the little montage on the home page was mostly of the woman out in nature with an occasional shot of the RV?
