Dub Box USA
When towing a Dub Box USA trailer, don't be surprised if fellow drivers pull up alongside for a closer look. "Besides the nostalgia effect, vehicles of this sort just have a warm, inviting feel," says Dub Box co-founder Heather Gardella, who drew inspiration from the iconic VW bus to create them.
The 1,500-pound, 12-foot-long fiberglass campers comfortably seat seven adults and have both standard home-on-the-road amenities (gas stove, fridge, etc.) and throwback touches (fold-out full-size couch, automated pop top). Intrigued? They're made to order in Portland, Oregon, and available in whatever color matches your wanderlust. [From $19,500; dubboxusa.com]
