For $300,000 You Can Get A Rolls, Or Jayco’s Embark Luxury RV, A Mini-Mansion On Wheels

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.

  • SOMEONE WHO OWNS A ROLLS HAS AN OPULENT HOTEL ROOM TO STAY AT WHILE AWAY FROM HOME. SOMEONE WHO DRIVES THIS HAS A DIFFERENT LIFESTYLE. NOT REALLY COMPARABLE.

  • TheBelltower

    There’s a $300k Rolls Royce. Then there’s a $300k bus designed by the finest decorators from Home Depot.

    • YEAH THE RENDER DOESN’T EXACTLY SAY OPULENT.

    • Six Thousand Times

      Yeah, didn’t quite look as good as some of the custom Airstreams I’ve seen.

    don’t understand why RVs can be so nice on the outside, yet contradicted by an ugly paint job on the outside.

    • Ary Wisesa

      Its unattractive exterior paint is exactly what it is intended: to look unattractive so it won’t attract unwanted burglars or robbers. I think they deliberately choose it . LOL…

  • Bash

    I would rather be seen in the rolls rather than a bus!

  • enthusia

    you’d get more use out of a rolls royce. how often do you drive an RV? like twice a year at most?

    • KingA

      Actually some retired folk sell up their homes and “travel”, so the RV is their retirement home on wheels…. (…but what happens when you get too old to drive, I don’t know – go into a retirement home I guess..?)

      But mainly in the US as there is much land… and big roads… and relaxed driving permits (you would not be allowed to drive this in Europe on a car license which restricts the vehicle to a max 3500kgs)…

    Is there a option for a interior not in 70’s style? lol

  • LWOAP

    No thanks, I’d rather have one of these:

    Perfect for going off the beaten path.

  • Matthijs

    Looks pretty dated from the inside..

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      Well it is geared towards Boomers, and they don’t like modern design so it makes sense.

  • KingA

    Check out the Newmar King Aire:

    Now this $800k+ coach completes with those well over $1m +
    Newmar are built by Amishes I think, and have something known as “comfort drive” to keep the coach going straight in cross winds

  • Vanquish

    anyone with money for this RV could obviously buy a rolls and could afford a hotel its not like this is a daily driver, its just ashame its interior looks like a cheap renovation from the 90s;more modern color choices would have even made it look better but this all beige look just looks bad

    I will take a Prévost instead, much better and made in Québec
