HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Part home, part office, entirely hightech, this mobile living space brings a touch of the high life to the road
Every motorhome makes a statement about its owner’s brand values and personality: a functional place to do business, a welcoming environment in which to host guests, a snug trackside home away from home, cosseting and insulating the occupants from weather and noise… a motorhome is all of this and more.
Created by Huslig Collective, an international design firm specializing in VIP aircraft interiors and motorhomes, and engineered and built by Schuler Fahrzeugbau Gmbh, this multi-functional mobile living space can serve as a team office, hospitality suite, driver accommodation, or even a high-end residential mobile home. The welcome begins outside with a comfortable patio space, leading via an electric door (which can be securely operated with fobs or camera-controlled access) into a spacious hall currently configured with two divans and a dining table for 10; it can easily be reconfigured as a team-dining space seating 30. Serving buffet cabinets cater for guests’ appetites, an entertainment centre with video game systems and a 65-inch television offer sedentary satisfaction, while behind a bar unit and moveable wall divider there is a gym space with stationary bike, treadmill, free weights, ping pong table, and another 65-inch television. LED downwash lighting and window shades provide privacy as well as flexible control of the interior ambience.
To the right, accessed through convenient double doors, the service trailer accommodates a restaurant-style kitchen with induction cooktop, oven, exhaust fan, express dishwasher and sink. At the rear a large storage area enables catering for a crowd with multiple refrigerators and freezers, storage shelves, and a full-size washer and dryer. The service unit features its own apartment space with a divan, bed, desk and 32-inch television as well as a shower. To completely facilitate independence there are clean and waste water tanks, along with additional generator systems and a satellite uplink system. The trailer also includes a spindle lift floor in the
rear storage area for loading containers
(or even two cars).
Along the left out of the hospitality area you enter the inner sanctum, the two-storey ‘Skyrise’ unit featuring a separate groundfloor meeting and dining area, luxuriously appointed in the finest materials and serviced by a separate kitchen to the rear. Featuring Gaggenau appliances including a French-door fridge with freezer, a convection oven with high-heat pizza and rotisserie functions, a microwave, a five-burner induction cooktop with down-draft ventilation fan, plus a dishwasher, the kitchen is trimmed in a combination of high-gloss Rosso Corsa and carbon fibre, with polished stainless steel counter tops. Removable elements enable the meeting space to be rapidly reconfigured into a 160cm by 200cm sleeping area, with a 55-inch television concealed in a retractable cabinet.
Upstairs the ‘Skyrise’ unit extends sideways to double the width of the ground floor, encompassing a large lounge with a threeperson divan, two leather Ekornes recliners with ottomans, and two single chairs. A 65-inch television set in a leather-panelled wall, luxurious throw rug over laminate flooring, combined with tall, wrap-around windows screened by motorised shades offers the soothing ambience of home. Elsewhere on the top floor you’ll find a flex room which can be used for physio work or as an office space, a luxury bathroom with walk-in shower, and two spacious bedrooms with wall-mounted televisions and ample hanging space for clothes.
Behind the scenes this hydraulically selflevelling trailer unit features clean and waste water tanks and a large generator, enabling it to be fully self-supporting and self-contained with no need for ground-based hook-ups.
It has a Crestron system to allow control of lighting, climate, window shades and entertainment from multiple control locations – including from ipads. The entertainment system has internet access, multiple satellite decoders, blu-ray players, Apple TV units and a streaming video server.
Currently offered for sale with three Mercedes Actros tractor units, this amazing construction is the perfect go-anywhere, do-anything team home-from-home.
