Performance You Can Count On

An Bowlus gives you the ability to explore unique locations in the USA and Canada. Whether it is in your travel plans to see all 61 National Parks, take your kids back to your home state, or truly unplug from it all at an off-grid camping location on public lands, the Bowlus is truly the best value because it has the performance you can count on.

Here are a few essentials to consider:

Driving

Although we all imagine those iconic national park moments, we still have to get there. That means hitching, driving, and parking. Each one of these actions has special considerations. If you’re like us, you don’t want your RV or travel trailer making decisions for you on where you can explore. The Bowlus is genuinely the easiest – and safest RV to drive. That means that driving performance is superb. You can accelerate easily onto on-ramps, brake quickly for defensive driving. Make u-turns on a two-lane highway and you never have to limit yourself with a Bowlus.

Camping

Most National Park Campgrounds cannot accommodate RV’s over 26’. With larger RV’s you’ll be stuck staying outside of the park and be far away from the fun. Even if sites can accommodate larger RV’s – they are not as abundant, meaning you will have a harder time making sure you get one. Additionally, many RV’s cannot be taken off of paved roads because of their very low ground clearance. However, when you are camping, you want to go off-grid or at the very least experience some rough dirt roads. The Bowlus has some of the highest ground clearance to do this. The exterior aluminum we use is the strongest so no worries about dents and dings.

Battery

Most travel trailers or RVs cannot go off-grid and use their battery power for more than a night if you are lucky. Their systems are not designed to be off-grid – they are just intended to be at a campground with access to hookups. However, like you, our favorite places to visit, like the National parks, generally do not have hookups. This means if you have an RV that is not built for boondocking, you could end up damaging your battery or unable to work even your heater due to your battery’s limitations. The Bowlus is designed to be off-grid. Our extensive battery banks, sophisticated power management systems and ability to run necessary appliances like the microwave and all outlets while off-grid means you can stay in all the coolest spots since you don’t require hookups and are free to enjoy yourselves.

Four Seasons

Many National Parks are located at elevation or located in desert terrain where temperatures can drop overnight. Most RV’s are not built for freezing conditions, and damage will occur. Purchasing an RV that can only be used six months out of the year is not as good value. The Bowlus is built for every season, including winter. There is no need for concern about damage when temperatures drop since all systems and piping are inside the Bowlus shell.  As well, you’ll be warm and cozy inside, Did I mention heated floors?

Why RV Safety Matters To You

Driving an RV can often be terrifying even for those who are not first-timers. White knuckling it all the way to your campsite can truly take the fun out of things. However, it doesn’t have to be this way.

When you purchase a vehicle, one of the most important considerations is safety. Safety is vital to protect you and your loved ones when you travel. It is important to put this priority first when you choose your RV. Most RVs do not have the same safety standards, and most are not easy to drive.

The Bowlus has superior safety due to its aerodynamic shape, incredibly ultra lightweight aluminum construction (3,000 lbs less) and it’s braking systems. The Bowlus is the easiest to drive full size towable – and the safest.

Here are a few essentials to consider:

Acceleration

Acceleration onto highways can be much slower when towing a heavy travel trailer or driving a motorhome. It is concerning to know that you could be cut off and merging can be dangerous when you can’t build up enough acceleration with even a sprinter van conversion. With a Bowlus, it is so lightweight and aerodynamic that it is incredibly easy to accelerate. We went 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds with a Tesla X towing the Bowlus.

Braking

When you are towing or driving a motorhome, it can take you a long time (and distance) to slow down, so you need to be prepared for that and brake much sooner. Taking a long time to come to a complete stop can be dangerous and does not lend itself to defensive driving practices.. The Bowlus has an extremely short braking distance because it is lightweight with top quality electric brakes.

Cross Winds

When you are towing a travel trailer or driving a tall motorhome or sprinter van with large flat sides, you should be concerned with experiencing crosswinds. Crosswinds can move the path of your vehicle sideways and can make you “fight” the wind. The Bowlus has an incredibly low center of gravity (while offering the highest clearance) and curved sides meaning that there is minimal flat surface area, so there is much less resistance for the wind to blow at you.

Cell Signal

Most campsites have minimal cell signal, but what if there is a medical emergency. You want to be able to contact the authorities for medical assistance. The Bowlus has a cellular booster and router with GPS tracking, so you are never alone and out of touch. The router can even run on two networks, so you never lose coverage when you most need it.

Locks

Most RVs do not have secure locks, and their flimsy, small RV style locks are all keyed similar. That means your neighbor could have the same lock as you. At Bowlus we use the same industrial door deadbolts that are used to secure millions of dollars of inventory. All uniquely keyed and extremely secure.

At Bowlus your safety and security is always of critical importance to us.
