Forget everything you know about luxury travel.
A New Zealand-based company, W2 architecture, is preparing to usher in what they’re calling a “mobile home revolution.” The company is currently developing the Romotow, a tow-behind trailer that is unlike anything the world has ever seen.
Luxury Travel with the Comforts of Home
All travelers want to enjoy themselves as they go about their adventures. Most of the time, however, leaving home means leaving your life and your possessions behind while you’re away. This is where W2 is hoping that the Romotow will make some major changes.
What if you could take your home with you when you go away from home? Well, maybe not your actual home, but possibly a portable living space that you could make your own. The Romotow travel trailer will be a personal mode of luxury ground transportation.
Contemporary Design, Timeless Luxury
The company calls this project “the reinvention of the caravan.” They’ve done away with the boxy designs of yesteryear in favor of a more futuristic streamlined look. This new innovation does for travel trailers what the stretch limousine does for limousine cars. It extends the interior to give you more space for whatever activities you enjoy.
The trailer is a long, pill-like oval-shaped structure to be towed behind your vehicle. Once parked, the automated swivel rotates the living space on a pivot. This places the interior living space perpendicular to its enclosure, revealing a sheltered outdoor area. The newly opened space is perfect for setting up a relaxing patio area. It even has a built-in electric barbecue! Imagine kicking back in this space while grilling out and sipping a cold drink on a beautiful summer’s day.

This snazzy camper trailer only has one bedroom, but the living room area can also be converted to sleeping space. At full capacity, the Romotow can comfortably house four adults. With the deck enclosure kit, you can add sleeping space for up to four more people by closing in the outdoor deck area.
This isn’t your grandpa’s Airstream. Imagine taking the best limousine features and expanding them onto a livable scale. Camping in one of these is like an extended version of a night on the town in a party van. The interior features wood and leather trim, premium sound system, and built-in shades. The synthetic teak wood used in these trailers is similar to what you would find in a luxury yacht.
Jumping on the Bandwagon
How would you like to be one of the lucky few to experience the Romotow in person? At press time, the first one of these trailers is still in production. The company is, however, taking a limited number of orders. These custom trailers will be shipped from the factory directly to the customer upon completion. You can follow the Romotow’s progress on the project’s Facebook page.
The entry-level price point for the travel trailer is $350,000. Final pricing will vary according to the level of customization.
Facing Travel Challenges
Since these trailers aren’t yet available to the general public, we can’t really say how they will affect luxury travel as we know it. However, there are a few points to keep in mind.
Braving the Elements
Driving yourself sounds convenient until you start thinking about how trying it is to drive through bad weather or congested traffic. Part of the luxury travel experience is being able to unwind. You can’t do that if you’re stressing over your driving conditions.
Instead, consider booking a party bus for your next road trip. Your professional chauffeur is there to keep an eye on the road while you kick back and relax.
Where will you go when you hit the road? When you’re traveling through unfamiliar territory, the game plan can easily change. From new traffic patterns to losing your way, there is a multitude of things that could push back your schedule.
What if you could ride with a professional who knows the area? That’s exactly what you get with a chauffeur. If you need an extra hand getting everything ready to go, personal concierge services give you the help you need.
Camping, with or without a travel trailer, is about getting away for a while. While this may be great for a vacation, there are times when isolation can be counterproductive.
You don’t stumble across many business professionals working from the campground. It sounds great to bring all of the comforts of home when you go away. However, the travel trailer model doesn’t fit well with the idea of corporate travel.
Other business professionals will be staying near the event location in accommodations built with them in mind. By keeping to yourself, you would miss out on valuable networking opportunities.
Why Wait for Luxury Travel?
Since the first Romotow trailer is still in production, it’s hard to say whether W2 will reach its goal of revolutionizing the way we travel. Even once this trailer is finished, they have only accepted a limited number of orders from clients.
Don’t wait around wishing that you could travel in luxury. There are already beautiful destinations to explore and luxurious ways to get there. From 5-star resorts to tropical getaways, there’s a whole world of opportunities waiting for you to experience it.
There are so many options when it comes to traveling, these days. There’s no reason to settle for less than the best. Luxury ground transportation services provide safety and comfort along every step of your journey.
