Bowlus fully electric luxury motorhome with Starlink WiFi: look inside

If you really like glamping or want to live off the grid in style, check out Bowlus’ new all-electric luxury motorhome, the Volterra.

The polished aluminum trailer claims the title of the world’s first all-electric motorhome to hit the market, with a non-cheap starting price of $310,000. The 27-foot-one-inch Volterra has double the battery capacity of the company’s previous RVs, along with solar panels that allow you to charge remotely and “live off-grid indefinitely,” according to Bowlus.

The Oxnard, California-based company wants to make your off-the-grid lifestyle rather luxurious. The Volterra is equipped with several luxury amenities, including underfloor heating, remote temperature control for heating and air conditioning, real wood interiors with vegan leather, memory foam mattresses and linen bedding.

The RV’s WiFi comes from Starlink, a super-fast satellite internet service created by Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

The Volterra can accommodate up to four people between the bedroom and the living room which can be converted into sleeping areas. It has a “spa-like” bathroom with teak floors and a stainless steel sink, and a kitchen with an induction cooktop, the company says.

It also includes a rear camera and 50-gallon freshwater tanks “for extended off-grid time or longer showers,” Bowlus adds.

The RV is relatively light for an RV, weighing in at 4,000 pounds overall. That means it can be towed by a wide variety of trucks and SUVs – and if you tow it with an electric vehicle, you can avoid all the stops at the gas station.

The Bowlus brand has a favorable history. The company was first founded in 1934 by aircraft designer Hawley Bowlus, who built the company’s first aluminum trailers. Two years later, he returned to aircraft design and closed the brand.

One of his collaborators, Wally Byam, used those concepts to build the first Airstream Clipper trailer in 1936, according to Curbed.
