It even has an elevator.
While an RV with a popup roof isn't too weird, the SAIC Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition is the first one we're familiar with that has a whole second story, complete with a balcony, that extends out of the top. If that's not special enough, there's even an elevator for accessing this area.
From the outside, this Maxus looks like a fairly normal, van-based RV. One notable feature is at the back where massive LEDs outline the rear area.
Stepping inside, the Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition shows off lots of luxury. There are large windows on each side, and these sections slide out to create 215 square feet (20 square meters) of living space. In the press photos, the company shows the interior with blocky, modern furniture and a neutral color palette, which creates a comfier atmosphere.
The kitchen includes a cooktop and an oven, so you could make Thanksgiving dinner in this rig. There's also a fridge and sink. In the back, there's a bathroom with a shower.
When extended the upper area is airy and looks ideal for an area to sit down and enjoy the view. There's 133 square feet (12.4 square meters) of space. The awning over the top is illuminated so the relaxation can last well into the night. The windows are adjustable between clear and opaque in case folks up there want some privacy, according to New Atlas. A doorway allows access to the balcony that's positioned over the van's cab.
Pricing for the Maxus Villa Edition in China starts at ¥2.68 million ($413,140 at current exchange rates).
