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.
