December 5, 2007 It seems whatever you want to buy, there's somebody out there making a bigger, more luxurious, more expensive version. Caravan travel has always been about bringing a few creature comforts from home with you on the road – and if your home happens to be a bit of a palace, we've found the caravan for you! KABE already make the longest caravan around with their enormous Hacienda – and for 2008 they're bringing out the tallest too. The double-storey Royal Tower might not fit under certain bridges, but it'll guarantee you're king of the trailer park, master of all you can survey from your cushy balcony view… that is, if you've got a car that can tow it!
As impressive as the monstrous exterior of the KABE Royal Tower might be, the interior is pretty staggering, looking more like the sort of appointment you'd find on a luxury mega-yacht than a caravan. Both storeys are air-conditioned, fitted out with leather seats for eating and entertaining, and the whole thing's very tastefully decorated. There's a surround sound system to keep the party happening and the kitchen features a dishwasher and full 4-burner gas cooktop, and the full-height second floor houses the lounge room and a large balcony. What, no hot tub?
At four and a half meters high, and more than eight meters long, you'll be needing a fairly decent sized garage (or aircraft hangar) to keep this rolling Swedish symbol of excess in. The EU105,000 pricetag will ensure that only a select few will know what it feels like to pull this behemoth down the freeway. We'd imagine it feels rather like being chased by a freight train.
