Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition
I want to buy this. It’s perfect for vacation or camping trip for singles or a couple.
“China-built Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition costs $413,000
The RV expands both upwards and outwards with slide-out walls and a powered pop-top extension that creates a sunroom on the second floor
The 215 square feet of living space on the ground floor is extended by an additional 133 square feet in the rooftop sunroom
Those traveling inside can reach the second floor via the use of a small elevator
An RV with two floors complete with an elevator to shuttle back and forth has been unveiled by Chinese automaker Maxus.
With travelers weary about staying in hotels or using public transport during the current pandemic, it could be the ideal time to purchase such a vehicle, although at $413,000 it doesn't come cheap.
The highlight of the vehicle is the roof which extends upwards to reveal an entire second floor including a balcony on which people can step out and take in the view.
The SAIC Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition RV, which was designed and built in China, and has a number of tricks up its sleeve to boost interior space of the vehicle by also using slide-out walls which expand when the Recreational Vehicle is parked up.
The ground floor provides 215 square feet of living space but once the powered pop-top is extended an additional 133 square feet can be enjoyed in the rooftop sunroom.
A spacious sleeping berth sits directly above the driver's cab while in the back there's even room for an L-shaped couch and a decent sized kitchen area which includes a stove and an oven.
There's also a fridge and sink, while in the back, there is a bathroom with a shower. “

“ When thinking of way to make an RV larger, most people think longer. Some imagine a wider motorhome. But the Chinese engineers behind the SAIC Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition had a different idea: why not extend upward? They didn't imagine just a simple pop-up roof, either, but a full-fledged upper level with a walk-out deck.”

It looks smaller than my in-law's motor home behemoth. What does it get -- 20 gallons to the mile?

This would only be viable if you manipulated your company or not-for-profit into purchasing it for you.

R4 Or steal $53,000,000 from a small midwestern town over the course of 20 years.

I'll never understand the desire some people have to drive their toilet and kitchen and bed around in a vehicle as big and as beautiful as a bus.
Where can you park such a thing for the night but in shitty campsites filled with shitty people, or maybe a WalMart parking lot for close encounters with those shitty people? It's a great pleasure I'm sure to drive though old cities and small villages and narrow backroads, but I get you get to know the menus of regional highway franchise joints.
And the pleasure of doing your own cooking and washing your own dishes, and that of cleaning your toilet system, and battening everything down so contents don't "settle" during transportation.
The life of luxury!

If the motors that control the side and top extensions break while they are up or out, you're screwed and ain't going anywhere.

I’ll drive my own pee
And I’ll make it glow
My pee will not be just one that glows
My pee will up truck weight
when strangers go by
If you’re a stranger,
brother, well so am I

I've always thought it would be fun to go on a four or five day vacation in an RV.

For $413K you can buy a nice getaway place most anywhere that will appreciate in value. This looks like a lot of wasted space to me

The DIY sprinter van modification forums consistently feature “swing-out” or “pull-out” kitchen systems - there’s a ventilation/temperature trade-off in smaller vehicles.

400 Gs for that little thing. No way Jose. I'd much rather have a Winnebago. For that kind of money you can get a big fine class A motor home.

R13, that requires a different class of drivers’ license - you can’t just throw money at a toy, you have to put in the work for an RV.

Try getting that through the Lincoln Tunnel.

You only need a special license if your motor home is over 26,000 lbs. and many Class A homes are under that weight.

Have any of you done a road trip in an RV? Where did you go?
I'd love to later in life.

I road tripped with two friends from Seattle to Key West over the course of a summer. My good friend and I happened to align on starting/stopping new jobs and built in a big window in between. We were in our thirties . . . thought about renting a place in the Algarve or Amalfi coast or Croatia. For some reason, a road trip was calling. Then her cousin, a trust funder with no real job or ambition, came with us.
I've been all over the world and this was by far one of the best times of my life. We stopped wherever we wanted, took our time, stayed three or four nights in places we loved. Kept driving if we didn't like the look/feel of a place.
We did go out for nice meals and out to bars quite a bit, though.

I’d buy it if I had the money. Perfect for camping trips.

The upstairs would get extremely hot in the sun. Not sure how usable a second floor would really be, maybe as a spare bedroom if your hubby snores. I would be afraid you could smell the toilet like a port a potty.

That's top-heavy, it would roll over and wouldn't make it through a freeway underpass.
|by Anonymous||reply 22||02/21/2021|
Damn you R22 - those two things were exactly what I was going to say. You can just see some idiot dummy toppling it and or knocking the top layer off on a low underpass and then looking all shocked.
Are you hot?

R18 that sounds brilliant fun!
I've driven and backpacked across all of Europe and it was the best education I've ever had.
If I was the British Prime Minister, I would rejoin the EU, give every 18-21 year old an Interail pass, £1000 and make it compulsory for them to backpack around Europe for a month.

400K for a load of Chinese crap!

I think that thing is ridiculous, as is the price.
Go get a Casita Trailer. Google it.
For RVs, always go American (USA), unless you
are not located in North America...Then you
are out of luck.

We may not have your gas guzzling RVs here
But our all electric motorhomes are a sight for sore eyes

$413,000 = 1180 nights in a hotel room at $350/night, or 3.25 years at respectably good hotels. And the staff makes your bed and cleans the toilet for you.
