Fox News: 5 high-tech RVs and campers for summer fun

From the bloggers at Fox News.

Even for those who know technology, you might think your iPhone or iPad is the upper crust of innovation. That’s true for a mobile device, but these high-tech recreational vehicles also pack some nifty surprises. Awnings that roll out automatically, lane departure warning systems, and sophisticated touchscreens are just the beginning.

1. Airstream Interstate Grand Tour ($151,736)

Yes, Airstream is known for its pull-behind trailers. This Mercedes-Benz powered recreational vehicle has an engine that happens to benefit from Mercedes technology, such as traction control (when a tire slips, the engine provides more torque automatically), warnings for lane departure and blind spot, as well as front and rear parking sensors. An awning extends and retracts at the push of a button, and the rear-view mirror has a back-up camera.

2. Winnebago Travato 59K ($89,475)

Priced just right for the tech traveler, this more nimble RV (at least compared to the bus models) measures 20-feet long but still has an electronically retractable awning. Winnebago added LED lighting inside and out (and even on the awning) to improve brightness. A new 5-inch touchscreen shows a back-up camera view. There’s an exterior sound system, and you can opt for a kayak rack on top.

  1. I read with great interest this article about the high-tec advanced RV’s coming into the market place. I would like to say however that John Brandon missed in his research of Class B units, the Ocean One by Advanced RV located in Willoughby, OH. They make perhaps the most advanced Class B with their Ocean One model. While I admit that Airstream is a well known name when it comes to the manufacturers of RV’s they in my estimation fall short of being the most advanced unit for high-tec components when comparing their INTERSTATE GRAND TOUR to the OCEAN ONE by Advanced RV.
