This 2017 Bowlus Road Chief Open Road Edition is one of the most luxurious and unique trailers in the RV world! The Bowlus Road Chief is the original aluminum travel trailer and stands out not only by its distinctive design, but its remarkable lightness that allows it to be towed by almost any vehicle. Owning this like new RV is owning a part of RVing history.

The Bowlus was the first of its kind, originally designed in 1934. Only 80 of them were made in the 1930s before the trailer’s designer, Hawley Bowlus, returned to the aircraft industry and one of his former employees, Wally Byam, took what he learned at Bowlus and started Airstream. Almost 80 years later, Bowlus enthusiasts who restored one of the original 1930s trailers decided to revive the company in 2014.

This luxurious 2017 Bowlus Road Chief for sale is in like new condition and still comes with the original owner’s manual. It has a tongue weight of only 210 lbs. and a hitch weight of only 2500 lbs., which means you likely already own a vehicle that can tow this ultra lightweight RV. It is the Open Road edition, which was one of two different editions Bowlus made that year. It has a king size bed in the aerodynamic rear of the rig so it’s perfect for comfortable, upscale couples travel.

This Bowlus Road Chief for sale has plenty of features to make your travels feel opulent. You’ll love the heated floors, light wood interior and beige leather upholstery in the living area. In the kitchen, you’ll find a 3 cu ft fridge and a 2 burner propane stove that runs off of a 28.3 pound liquid propane tank. The RV features a lithium battery to cut down on weight and a solar panel to keep you running for longer without hooking up. Your rig will stay climate controlled with the digital thermostat that operates the 2500btu boiler and a 10000btu A/C. It has a 19 gallon fresh water tank and a 21 gallon grey water tank along with a wet bath and cassette toilet. Travelers can stay connected with the built-in cellular amplifier and mini booster. It also has brake control for a smoother ride. This Bowlus Road Chief for sale is not only beautiful, but practical: everything in the rig is designed to be multifunctional and lightweight.  

This outstanding RV will be the envy of every RV park you visit and put you among one of the most elite groups of RV ownership out there. It’s rare to find a Bowlus Road Chief for sale in such incredible condition! Act today on this special RV by reaching out with serious inquiries only!
