We’re still in the early stages of the EV revolution, but there’s no denying that the future of cars — all vehicles, really — is electric. But the EV revolution for RVs has barely just begun. Thankfully, a number of companies are leading the charge (pun intended) to develop new and innovative technologies to take recreational vehicles to the next level. Case in point: Grounded’s G2 Campervan. It’s an all-new, all-electric RV with all the comforts of home, a boatload of remote-controlled tech features, and a solid 250-mile range.

From the outside, the G2 camper van might look like a repurposed Amazon delivery truck. The design is low-key, bordering on bland. But that streamlined, no-nonsense profile helps keep this EV aerodynamic — an important element in achieving its 250-mile range. While that figure hardly competes with even the thirstiest, gas-powered vans capable of hundreds of miles on a single tank, it’s a respectable starting point.

Grounded’s G2 Campervan interior

But it’s what’s inside the G2 that really sets this all-electric RV apart from the crowd. Grounded built it to be completely customizable, using a modular interior furniture system that can be configured in an almost unlimited number of floor plans. Whatever your priority — more sleep space, a bigger kitchen, extra seating, etc. — the G2 can accommodate it. The system also makes it easy to repurpose the layout in the future if your needs change.

Whichever layout you choose, this EV RV delivers with all the creature comforts of home. That includes a full-featured kitchen with a sink, an induction stove, a combination fridge/freezer, and adjacent bench seating with a flip-up table for dining with friends and family. The queen-sized bed at the rear sits high on a platform, creating a cozy, nook-like “bedroom.” Bathroom amenities include a dry-flush toilet (no messing with nasty black water tanks and “stinky slinky” sewer hoses) and an outdoor shower so you can lather up and exfoliate while communing with nature.

Grounded’s G2 Campervan features

The G2 was built from the ground up as a next-gen, state-of-the-art camper. Grounded RVs started with the BrightDrop Zevo platform and added forward-thinking enhancements to future-proof this camper van for years to come. It relies on integrated electronics and software to take your camping experience to the next level. The dedicated Grounded+ app, for example, allows owners to view all of the G2’s systems at a glance. Real-time location information, driving data, battery status, and water and fuel levels can all be monitored remotely. Lights, appliances, climate control, and even the entertainment system can all be controlled while away from the EV. It’s all powered by a 640-watt rooftop solar array designed to keep all the systems humming almost indefinitely.

There’s no sidestepping the fact that almost any tricked-out, van life-worthy camper van is going to be more expensive than a DIY alternative. So, it’s no surprise that the one and only trim level of the Grounded G2 EV stickers for $195,000. But interested buyers can secure their order today for just $100. If van living isn’t your thing, but you still have your eye on an electric RV, Grounded also has an aerodynamic towable trailer in the works that’s slated to debut in 2025.

There are a lot of national parks to see, so here's a list to start with
Hidden Lake, Glacier National Park

Soaring mountains, dune-covered deserts, glacial lakes, primeval forests, and red rock canyons set the stage for memorable adventures in splendid U.S. national parks — "America’s best idea," as filmmaker Ken Burns rightly described it. You could spend years exploring the countless wonders of these cherished reserves, but if time is limited, then focus your attention on the best of the best.

National Park Pass programs
Before we get into the list of U.S. national parks, let's cover how you can save money if you're going to be visiting several of America's best national parks. The National Park Pass is a program offered by the National Park Service that allows entrance to many federal recreation sites across the country. Depending on your needs, there are different types of passes to choose from.

Annual Pass: This pass costs $80 and is valid for one year at over 2,000 federal recreation sites managed by six different agencies, including the National Park Service. This is a good option if you plan on visiting several parks throughout the year.
Senior Pass: Citizens 62 and older can purchase a lifetime Senior Pass for $80. It grants the same access as the annual pass.
America the Beautiful Pass: This pass costs $80 and covers entrance fees for a single vehicle, including rentals and RVs, at national parks and federal recreational lands for 12 months.
Military Pass: Veterans get a free lifetime pass to national parks and other federal recreational lands. Here are some additional things to keep in mind about national park passes:
