It’s Jalopnik’s Best of 2021, all the posts you loved the most.
Was 2021 a fantastic year? Not precisely! Yet we did have some articles that got a lot of interest. Stroll down memory lane with us, as we reflect on 2021, a year that will certainly appear far better by now in 2022.
When you purchase a RV that sets you back more than a lot of houses, you’re mosting likely to expect it to be flush with high-ends. Giant Class A RVs come packed with features, however I would certainly never seen one that makes use of a storage space bay cellar like a bed room.
A viral video just recently tipped off the web to this giant 2007 Prevost Featherlite H3-45 for sale. It’s a rolling palace with a couple of dress up its sleeve.
Some Recreational vehicles attempt to wow possible buyers with weird attributes like a garage to park your car in or a second flooring you can celebration on. This RV does not have any one of those gimmicks, yet it has two bathrooms as well as even a bedroom hidden away in its basement. Somehow, all of it suit something that virtually any individual can legally drive when traveling.
The train might be 14 years of ages, but as Andrew from the RVing with Andrew Steele YouTube network is about to show you, it’s chock-full of facilities. However it better be, as owning it is a benefit that will cost you half of a million bucks:
The Detroit Diesel Collection 60 nestled in the rear of the gear brings an excellent spec sheet of its very own. The turbo diesel straight-six engine has a variation of 14 liters; it produces 515 horsepower and also at the very least 1,550 lb-ft torque.
The interior is likewise magnificent, as it has not just one, yet two washrooms. Nonetheless, the 2nd bathroom, located about in the middle of the recreational vehicle, has just a bathroom and also a sink.
The inside also broadens with 2 huge slides coming off of the port side of the trainer. And for those actually lengthy journeys far from house, it also has a washer as well as clothes dryer.
Nevertheless, the trick feature of this Prevost is that the second storage bay cellar has been exchanged a spare bed room. Our enthusiastic host slides down through the hole in the flooring and also right into the little space.
The extra bedroom is strange, as it’s accessed either with the outside cellar bay hatches or though a hatch in the motor home’s floor that’s normally covered by a chair.
Once in there, you get a comfy bed and 2 TVs to play with. While the room appears like a neat secluded, getting in and out of it appears like a discomfort, especially if that chair is covering the indoor hatch.
It also looks a bit like an afterthought compared with the remainder of the inside. Still, I love the idea of having this as a secret fort away from everyone else.
Motorcoaches such as this Prevost have what are frequently called basements. These usually lug different equipment like the gear’s onboard generator, exterior enjoyment facilities as well as access to the motor home’s plumbing system. They’re additionally made use of for additional storage. The bays on this Featherlite Train has all of that gear and it’s all completed in fake carbon fiber and also diamond plate steel.
It’s a little humorous given the asking cost of this beast.
I asked yourself if this was a factory alternative or some unusual adjustment. The selling dealer says that this Prevost has Featherlite’s Celebration floorplan, which does not mark this bay as having TVs or any type of bed linen. Strangely, I couldn’t find any type of floorplan that utilized this bay for anything apart from storage space.
I reached out to Featherlite to see if this is an alternative or just a wild modification. I’ll update if I hear back.
