Furrion introduced its new concept vehicles, Limitless and Hercules, at the recent 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Limitless, a customized fifth wheel, and Hercules, a futuristic semi-truck, join Elysium, the motorhome complete with a hot tub and helicopter on top that Furrion introduced at CES 2017, to complete the concept fleet.
All three vehicles are outfitted with the latest in technology, combining smart living solutions with sophisticated design for a luxury RV lifestyle experience, according to a corporate news release.
As a leading innovator in consumer electronics and energy systems for recreational vehicles, yachts, hotels, and homes, Furrion showcases the company’s smart technology with their new fleet of luxury vehicles.
“Our concept fleet gives us the flexibility to showcase our innovation practically anywhere, and we are excited to unveil Limitless and Hercules here at CES,” said Matt Fidler, co-founder and chief marketing officer for Furrion.
“Unlike a standard trade show booth, by using the vehicles we are able to demonstrate the products in a home so people can see how these applications would truly be used to enhance their daily lives.
“CES has never seen anything like this, with three massive mobile showcases that are packed with innovation actually inside the convention center, and we think consumers will respond well to the wide range of products we are launching this year. From the introduction of our state-of-the-art kitchen appliances to LED fireplaces to the most versatile and adventurous Bluetooth speaker, our Furrion LIT, we are excited for this year’s show.”
Limitless is a fifth wheel like no other. It is 41 feet long and 8 feet wide and features six slide outs that will expand the RV to 350 square feet of living space. Limitless is towed by Hercules—a futuristic semi-truck that features its own luxury living quarters behind the main cab. When paired together these two vehicles create a connected living experience that redefines luxury mobility.
Stepping into Limitless is like stepping into a luxury hotel suite or apartment, as you enter with views of a professional kitchen straight ahead and a luxury living room to the right. The kitchen is any home chef’s dream, complete with a full suite of stainless steel appliances, including a full-sized side-by-side refrigerator, built-in oven, gas cooktop and hood, convection microwave, induction cooktop island, and a compact dishwasher.
The living area is perfect for entertaining, with its spacious layout and a 65-inch smart TV and multi-zone Furrion entertainment system that allows you to control the content with a touch of the remote throughout the RV. Adding a unique touch is the 40-inch electric LED fireplace, which not only has adjustable temperature controls to heat the entire space but also allows you to change the color of the life-like flame simulation from orange to red to blue.
While the inside is luxurious, the outside of Limitless is just as high-tech. An omnidirectional antenna ensures you will be able to receive TV, Wi-Fi, and Furrion’s new 4G data network, which is rolling out on RV’s in the USA later this year. The antenna includes digital signal boosters to provide Internet connectivity in even the most remote areas.
Hercules got its name due to its sheer size and strength, but it definitely has a softer side as well. Behind the cockpit are compact living quarters with a luxury feel. There you will find a bedroom and a living space with a 24-inch Furrion TV, a Furrion infotainment system, a compact refrigerator, and microwave. In the living quarters, occupants can gaze at the stars through the moonroof on top.
When not on the road, Elysium, Limitless, and Hercules reside at Furrion’s Innovation Center and Institute of Technology in Elkhart, Indiana.
