When we talk about houses on wheels, people often think of RVs or motorhomes. There are also huge camper vans that have their interiors converted into small living spaces, perfect for the great outdoors. Well, Maxus wants to redefine how we think of these houses on wheels. For them, having just a single floor isn't enough. Instead, it needs an entire second floor, a balcony, and even an elevator. Excess is the name of the game.
Meet the Life Home V90 Villa Edition, Maxus' version of a motorhome and possibly the wildest one yet. While some camper vans may have a popup roof, this one has an entire second floor, effectively turning it into a double-decker. Meanwhile, slide-out walls help maximize floor area on the first floor together. Customers can choose between the various colors for the interior and even spec the furniture. There are loads of amenities too, including a TV and selectable privacy glass.
Aside from the “living room” the van also comes with a kitchen that features a working cooktop and oven. There's also a fridge and sink. At the back, the van even has a bathroom with a working shower. Upstairs, you can chill and take photos of the scenery from the balcony. The awning is illuminated so outdoor relaxation can go on into the night. To go up, you don't take the stairs. Instead, you take the built-in elevator.
While most campervans may feel cramped inside, you won't be in the Maxus. Available living space is rated at 12.4 square meters in the upstairs area and 20 square meters in the lower level. That's nearly the same size as some studio-type condominiums in Metro Manila, or even bigger.
It may be bigger than studio-type condominium units, but so is the price. In China, the Maxus V90 Villa Edition starts at CNY 2.68 million or roughly PHP 20.2 million. It is expensive no doubt, but at least you can bring the house nearly anywhere.
