  3. This Double-Decker RV Takes #VanLife to the Next Level—Literally

The SAIC Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition has a full kitchenette, bathroom, and shower. Oh, and a working elevator.

Wait … your upfitted #VanLife Mercedes-Benz Sprinter only has one floor? Lame! Are you really living your best Instagram life if you can’t take photos of the desert sunset from your van’s balcony? I guess that means you don’t have an elevator in your rig, either. Yikes. Get with the times and check out the eloquently named SAIC Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition to pump that follower count up—or simply flex on the goobers lumbering around in single-decker bus-sized RVs.

Excess is the name of the game with the China-built Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition. The relatively medium-sized Maxus expands both upwards and outwards with the help of slide-out walls and a powered pop-top extension, which provides 215 square feet of living space inside the ground floor and an extra 133 square feet in the rooftop sunroom. Stairs? Ha! Don’t be ridiculous. That implies you would have to exert yourself. The Villa Edition features a working elevator to shuttle occupants to the balcony level.

Once in the sunroom, occupants can relax and chill out with toggle-able privacy glass and illumination for all-night Instagram Live streams. Down below, living amenities abound with plenty of seating surfaces, a transparent OLED TV, and a reasonably well-equipped kitchenette with a full stovetop and oven—perfect for when you get a mid-Mojave craving for Beef Wellington. Once it’s time to turn-in, a bathroom and shower combo lets you freshen up before you climb into the sleeping area located above the cab.

Unfortunately, as this is built and sold only in the Chinese market, you’ll have to take an extended vacation there to experience the Maxus for yourself. If you do have a sneaky method of getting the Villa Edition into the United States, expect to pay the equivalent of around $413,000 at current exchange rates.
