This Giant Camper Van Is Big Enough to Be Your Second Home

The German manufacturer describes this camper van as a “rolling space miracle.”

Who needs a tiny home when you can live in a giant van? This week, German camper van manufacturer La Strada unveiled the Nova EB, an extended version of its top-of-the-line Nova camper van, at the CMT show in Stuttgart. It uses a Mercedes Sprinter as a base with a fiberglass monocoque body, producing a spacious vehicle that’s about 10 feet tall and seven feet wide. La Strada’s English-language site describes it as both a “mobile luxury hotel” and a “rolling space miracle.”

The Nova EB sleeps two in the rear of the vehicle, in a choice of either two single beds or a merged queen. There are internal and external storage compartments under the bed area. There’s also a wet bath and a kitchenette with a dual-burner stove, 80-liter refrigerator and sink. The front seats rotate 180 degrees to provide a four-seat dining area.

La Strada’s sleek flagship camper van isn’t cheap. The base price is $110,674, and much like a Porsche, that’s just the starting point before you begin working your way through the online configurator. Adding four-wheel-drive for some seasonal and terrain versatility costs $15,076. Upgrading to the 190-horsepower version of the diesel engine is another $4,489. You can also make smaller upgrades, like adding an MBUX infotainment system and 17-inch wheels. (The Nova EB does not include the new MBAC smartphone control system found in other Mercedes-based campers.)

Sadly, like many of our favorite camper vans, there appear to be no plans to sell the Nova EB outside Europe. Still, we can dream.
