Part of adulting is encountering the urge to pack up a few belongings, abandon all of your responsibilities and set off toward No Man’s Land to live in a self-imposed state of hermithood. We’ve all had that thought at one point or another, but plotting an escape of that magnitude isn’t as simple as it sounds. Luckily, there’s now a "living vehicle" that can support several weeks’ worth of off-the-grid living.
Designed by HofArc, the cozy mobile camper measures a mere 215 feet long, its interior creatively arranged to capitalize on the tiny space. It’s perfect to escape from the hectic pace of day-to-day life, but occupants can still experience the comforts of home.
The Living Vehicle features a bathroom and a kitchen with enough space to accommodate a full-sized refrigerator, stove and sink. The area also has an island with extra storage space, and for those who want to share their minimalist getaway experiences, the RV contains convertible beds that sleep up to six people. In the event that cabin fever threatens to sneak up and spoil the plans, the tiny vehicle is outfitted with large windows that flood the living space with natural light. Should the need arise to connect to the virtual world (it always does), the internet can be accessed via Living Vehicle’s Omni-directional WiFi antenna, which is mounted on the roof.
Another design aspect that allows for an impromptu escape is the Living Vehicle’s insulation system, which makes it suitable for year-round living. The sustainable vehicle keeps itself afloat with the assistance of four 12-volt lithium ion batteries, four 150-watt solar panels, a 3000-watt power inverter along with a 100-gallon tank that stores water.
According to the Living Vehicle website, the designers estimate that it could "support 2 people living off-the-grid for approximately one month."
