Nope, that's not an Airstream trailer. That is a Bowlus Road Chief travel trailer.

Last built in 1936, the Bowlus brand was revived in 2013 and brought into the 21st century while still maintaining that Art Deco look.

If you want to go home with everything you see here, it'll probably cost you nearly half a million bucks.

The living room can transform into a dining area for four people.

When not used for dining, the living area can seat five people.

While different finishes are available in the Bowlus Road Chief, they are all impeccably designed and manufactured in the Bowlus factory in Oxnard, California.

In case you're wondering, the floors are heated and the Bowlus Road Chief On The Road weighs a mere 2,300 pounds.

Bowlus currently offers two models. The Road Chief On the Road retails for $137,000.

If you have $219,000 burning a hole in your pocket, trade up to the Road Chief Limited Edition, with lithium ion phosphate batteries that can power the trailer for a week completely off the grid.

The lightweight trailer means it can be towed by smaller vehicles. Here it's towed by a Bentley Bentayga, but the company claims a Tesla Model X has plenty of power to pull the Road Chief.
