Lume Traveler No. 1 Trailer Features a Panoramic, Retractable Roof for Stargazing

first_img Taxa Outdoors’ Rugged Mantis Travel Trailer Just Got Even Better From stripped-down, hitch-mounted camping cubes to hardcore, offroad-centric offerings, there’s a travel trailer for every personality and road-tripping style. However, we’re confident the Lume Traveler No. 1 is the only one on the market with a panoramic sunroof. Think of it as “the nature lover’s travel trailer.”According to its website, Lume company founder Hein van de Laar is not a fan of camping, but he loves relaxing in nature. As a designer, he challenged himself to craft a travel trailer that married these two disparate notions. The result is the streamlined, compact Lume Traveler No. 1.The exterior is a study in Dutch minimalist design. The gently curved, all-aluminum body creates a silhouette that’s equal parts teardrop trailer and modern toy hauler. Blind rivets and retro-future rims add rugged character to the otherwise sleek frame. The rear hatch opens to reveal a sizable outdoor kitchen with twin gas burners, a 40-liter fridge, a wash basin, and plenty of cabinet space for your tableware, glassware, and s’mores essentials.

Only 50 of the Traveler No.1 will be available. At an eye-popping €46,500 (approximately USD $53,550) plus shipping from Europe, the Lume Traveler No. 1 isn’t cheap. But, if you’re looking to stand out, even among the sleekest Airstream trailers, it’s a solid option. If that’s still too rich for your blood, the company offers two cheaper alternatives: Lume Basic (similar to the flagship No. 1 but with fewer features) and the Lume Shell (an empty travel trailer “shell” designed to be custom outfitted according to the buyer’s preferences). World’s First Luxury Space Hotel Promises Climbing Wall, Low-Gravity Basketball Courts Inside, Lume offers the pared-down simplicity of a traditional teardrop trailer. A full-sized bed, felted wool upholstery, sustainable teak trim, and hand-stitched leather fill the interior creating a warm, upscale sleeping “cocoon.” Twin reading lights and USB charging ports provide a dash of modern luxury.What sets the Traveler No. 1 apart is overhead. The 6-by-3.5-foot, panoramic soft-top roof slides open to reveal nothing but sky. The Sunbrella fabric is among the most weatherproof outdoor materials on the market, and the built-in insect screen ensures a peaceful night’s sleep even with the roof open. It’s your own “million-star-hotel.”last_img read more
