The 5 Best Camper Vans Of 2015

Have you been thinking about quitting your boring day job to embark on a cross-country trip in a sweet ass RV that's nicer than most people's apartments? Only every waking minute? Then you're going to love this. 

We've rounded up five camping vans that represent the newest—and best—machines to have recently hit the market. From off-road monsters to luxury liners, these machines are the cream of the crop.

1. Fleetwood Bounder

2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the Bounder, and to mark the occasion, Fleetwood’s adding a bunch of upgrades to the new model. It’s huge, so holding 100 gallons of fresh water’s no problem. What you really need to know, though, is what’s not in this photo. Sure, this living room is nice, but there’s also a full bedroom that’ll fit a queen sized bed in back.

2. Airstream Interstate Grand Tour EXT

Here’s the thing, the Interstate Grand Tour EXT is based on a Mercedes Sprinter Van, so it’s a helluva lot easier to drive than most of its other offerings. Aaand it’s super luxe. Airstream took the wrapper off of it late last year, and it's now ready for the open road.

3. Sportsmobile Sprinter Van 4x4

The guys at Sportsmobile routinely turn ordinary vans into wild all terrain campers, and they’re no stranger to the venerable Mercedes Sprinter as a touring van. But now, they’ve taken the Sprinter 4x4 and turned it into the desert crossing German camping van that you’ve been missing all of your life.

4. GXV Patagonia / BAE SD Brazos 6x6

Let’s say you’re somewhere remote. Not no-one-can-hear-you-scream remote, but there’s-no-one-within-a-hundred-miles-of-you remote. Enter the Patagonia BAE SD Brazos 6x6. Yes, it has six wheels. Yes, the power goes to all six. Even if this *wasn’t* fully loaded on the inside, it would be pretty badass.

5. Volkswagen T6 California Camper Van

This is the all new VW Camper Van you’d absolutely go out and purchase right now...if it were sold stateside. Can anyone say "Euro-trip"?
