DiCaprio's moving castle has everything you need and more.
While some of us would be more than happy sticking it out in a Ford F-150 converted into a motorhome, A-list celebrities do need something a bit more professional. Enter King Kong Production Vehicles, the self-described frontrunner when it comes to fancy motorhomes. Judging by this special rental that it has leased out to the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, that claim is pretty hard to argue with.
The main design brief for this opulent motorhome was for it to be a home away from home for these A-list celebrities. In the following video, company owner David Rovsek explains that this particular trailer was lucky enough to be part of both the Inception and Money Ball. Although not the same model showcased here, he confirms that one of his products joined Will Smith for some business in Louisiana.
Once inside, Rosvek tells us that the entire celebrity suite measures a whopping 53 feet long. With a cost price of $1.5 million and a rental rate of $6,000 a week, it most certainly is the most extravagant offering that the company has in stock for its clients. For good measure, the layout includes one and a half bathrooms, seven televisions (including one in the guest bathroom, of course), two fireplaces, and a full security system.
Ensuring celebrities retain their superior social statuses when guests are invited over, the trailer's kitchen and living room area have been designed to incorporate a 'great room' type feeling. Despite these actors not doing much cooking in their spare time, said kitchen is fully kitted out with a cooktop and oven. One piece of equipment they might appreciate is the wine bar and built-in refrigerator.
Allowing stars to feel as fancy as possible while cleaning themselves after a hard day on set, the celebrity motorhome's main bathroom has been installed with a custom-designed shower composed of recycled glass. This feature alone cost $50,000 to install and took artisans two weeks to put together. For those really cold days, the floors of the bathroom, kitchen, and living area have also been heated. Considering that actors' working hours can sometimes stretch to 18 hours a day, Rovsek says that they desperately need a living space where they can efficiently relax and recharge between takes when filming.
The trailer we have here was part of the company's stock back in 2014 but a quick scour through its listings today shows that this iconic model has since been replaced by a series of modern offerings. One current stand-out model is the Vogue fifth wheel "Gold Edition" which has been fitted with touches that are significantly more contemporary. The lack of the glitzy Vegas theme means it's not as outstanding as the featured trailer but we can't deny that this is arguably more chic and appealing.
