There’s a stigma that’s associated with RVs, as they are seen as a means for elderly people to see the country in. But the Jayco Embark Luxury coach from Thor Industries and Spartan Specialty Vehicles isn’t like the rest – in fact, it’s an opulent machine that would make anyone trade their house for a life on the road.
As with a lot of RVs, the best part is the interior. There’s an entertainment system, which includes a 50-inch LED HDTV and a sound bar in the living room, while the bedroom gets its own 32-inch LED HDTV. Besides being able to entertain yourself and guests on long trips, it has enough equipment for making some gourmet meals.
The interior comes with a Whirlpool refrigerator, a Frigidaire conventional microwave oven, solid-surface countertops and a stainless-steel sink. And when the time comes to clean up, there’s a one-piece fiberglass shower with a skylight and a sink that’s integrated into a solid-surface countertop, plus a Thetford toilet. The bathroom is definitely nicer than a restroom at a rest stop.
Instead of having to stop and stay at a dingy hotel, there’s a king-sized mattress in the bedroom section and a massive wardrobe as well. You won’t even have to stop to clean your clothes, as a washer and dryer are available as an option.
There are a lot of things to stay on top of, which is where a touchpad control system that can adjust the lighting, temperature, and other systems comes into play. The interior isn’t the only house-like aspect of the vehicle. The Embark Luxury Coach has a 39-inch LED HDTV on the outside along with LED lights, a power patio awning, and an exterior utility center with a system monitor panel.
Rolls-Royces and Bentleys are nice and well, but this RV is just as opulent – and then some. The available options are incredibly interesting, as well, with things like a fireplace, theater seating with reclining seats and a central vacuum system. Besides the fireplace, these are some features that houses don’t even have.
The Embark Luxury Coach is built on the all-new Spartan K1 chassis, is powered by a Cummins 360hp diesel engine and made its debut at the Florida RV SuperShow in Tampa. The pricing isn’t as bad as you’d expect, with the RV starting at roughly $290,000. Not exactly a bargain, but then again, if you consider all its features, it kinda makes sense.
