Remote Vans drops 3 new camper van models designed for luxury living on the road

Camper vans have come a long (long) way since the OG models your parents and their parents grew up with. Many of today’s rigs are built not just for living on the road but for living and working in style — some offer premium features that rival most modern studio apartments. Case in point: Remote Vans. The company’s latest three camper van models are designed for modern digital nomads with enough amenities to make you at least consider trading in your house keys for a life on the road.

Each of the three camper van models — Friday, Oasis, and Aegis—is born from a stock Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. Straight off the production line, it’s arguably the most capable and tech-forward platform on the market, designed for easy living on the road. But Remote Vans goes well beyond the stock platform, customizing each of the three models to within an inch of its life.

On the inside, every model is outfitted with all the comforts of home. The Queen Bascule Bed system and Vanhalla Sleeper Seat provide plenty of space for relaxing by day and snoozing at night. The decked-out galley features a stainless steel sink and premium appliances, including a 700W microwave, a 65-liter fridge/freezer, and a portable 1,800W induction cooktop. Scratchproof Italian composite and a solid surface countertop provide a durable place to prep meals on the go. The full-featured bathroom setup includes separate fresh and gray water tanks and a recirculating indoor shower with plenty of hot water so you can actually keep clean on the go (a rare luxury for van lifers). The best part? Starlink Internet is standard on every model.

Remote Vans’ MoPoWa System is what really separates these three models from almost every other camper van on the road. At its core is a 51V Lithionics Neverdie Power System with 16.8kWh of battery storage and a built-in reserve. A massive 3,000W inverter (with a 5,500W boost) keeps every power outlet and appliance humming, including the onboard air conditioner and water heater. It’s all topped up by a 190W solar panel designed to keep you going almost indefinitely while on the go. Bonus: There’s a 30-amp shore power inlet for lightning-fast power-ups at camp.

Every model is well-equipped inside and out. But what separates the entry-level Friday from its “bigger” brothers is a long list of off-road-centric features. The Oasis adds an LED lightbar, a fender armor kit, a 45-gallon long-range fuel tank, and an onboard air compressor, among many other things. The top-of-the-line Aegis has all of the above, plus additional overlanding-friendly amenities, like a beefier suspension kit, skid plates, expedition-worthy storage, and high-powered LED grill lights.

The base-level Friday camper van starts at just over $200,000. While that price tag seems steep, even this “value” model comes well-equipped with enough features to satisfy all but the most hardcore off-road-loving nomads. Upgrading to the Oasis costs $238,500, and the flagship Aegis runs just north of $250,000. Bottom line: They certainly aren’t “cheap.” But when you consider that 20-year financing options are available, you could easily trade living in a traditional home for life on the road and maybe even save a bit of money in the process.

The last decade has seen an explosion in tech innovation in the RV and travel trailer industry. With batteries and mobile solar setups getting cheaper, better, and more ubiquitous, many of today's recreational vehicles are finally capable of keeping up with the demands of today's tech-obsessed travelers. Case in point: Coast's all-new Model 1. It's a solar-powered travel trailer designed to take you just about anywhere without having to leave your gadgets behind.

From afar, the exterior of the Model 1 has the same recognizable silhouette as many of today's premium travel trailers. But, decked in jet black or two-tone black-on-white (it's also available in all white), it feels sleeker, more modern, more ... premium. The glossy shell appears vaguely futuristic, a hint of the solar-heavy tech that lies beneath. The genuine composite structure is made by, in Coast's words, "combining differing fully recyclable, re-purposable, and environmentally friendly natural components [that are] virtually waterproof."

Camper van vs Class B RV: How to choose which to buy for your outdoor adventures
Class B RV vs Camper Van - who ya got?
Man building a campfire in front of a Winnebago Ekko Springer camper van.

If you would love to go on road trips and experience the best national parks, there is no better way to do it and still feel comfortable like you’re at home than camping in an RV. Let’s be honest: You will enjoy sleeping on a cozy bed in an RV with an air conditioner more than in a moist and chilly tent. It’s also easier to prepare your meals in an RV because of the refrigerator, and you don’t have to worry about packing and unpacking your camping bags every night or morning. 

However, the big RVs can be a headache if you're driving through low-hanging bridges or tight spaces. They’re also more expensive to fuel and maintain compared to smaller-size vehicles. Alternatively, you could choose a Class B RV or a camper van if prefer an RV that strikes a balance between rural camping and big-city adventure. But the question is — what’s the difference between a Class B RV and a camper van? And which one should you buy?

Van life usually means sacrificing comfort and living space for maximum portability. There's no denying that it's tight packing most of the amenities of home into the back of a hollowed-out work van. So, anything you can do to make the space feel a little roomier feels like a luxury. Super Pacific's clever CloudCap does just that by converting the unused space on your camper van's roof into a legit two-person "bedroom" with a view.
