Performance You Can Count On

A 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:


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.


Most National Park Campgrounds cannot accommodate RV’s over 27’. 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.


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?
