The Bowlus Road Chief - Endless Highways - Performance Edition

The Bowlus Rivet® epitomizes the rugged adventure camping that this country is known for. Freedom to camp anywhere is possible with this Bowlus. Over-specced power management systems with yacht-quality lithium and solar power generation allow indefinite time off-grid. A three-inch lift kit for added off-road clearance with all-terrain tires support off-road access. The Rivet is the first production RV to be self-propelled, self-powered, and remote-controlled, enabling you to access virtually any campsite.

The Rivet can be towed with the largest selection of tow vehicles. The Bowlus is by far the most aerodynamic RV. The Rivet's GVWR of 3,500 lb. makes it the easiest-to-drive full-size towable ever. You likely already have a vehicle that can tow the Rivet, and with Bowlus EasyHitch - you’ll be off on your adventure in under 60 seconds.

With the Rivet compact floor plan, you still enjoy upgraded finishes, a large separate bedroom with a king bed, a luxury ensuite bathroom, and a spacious living room and kitchen.

Bowlus is known as the highest-quality RV on the market. Why? Bowlus selects high-end materials for rugged experiences and is built with a level of pride and attention to craftsmanship that only exists within privately held companies. We create RVs for a lifetime of adventures, returning incredible value to you year after year.
