Since Alpine’s audial elements have long been what we revere the manufacturer for, its head-turning Cross Cabin RV is genuinely something we’ve never seen the company pull off. Based around a Ford Transit, the new camper van is aimed toward the typical modern-day remote workers and outdoor-loving design buffs.
With one look at its remarkable interior, you’d think you stepped into an art installation rather than a camper van. Fully lined with mesmerizing bamboo ribs, the luxurious RV exudes a refined aesthetic bolstered by modern-day tech. Behind the ribs are lighting arrangements and audio equipment to maintain its streamlined, Japanese-inspired design language. Additionally, it is fitted with integrated seating areas that can operate as anything from a dining table for four or be to a catch-all table of sorts. But that’s not all, as remote workers are sure to get a kick out of its Smart Table mode, fully equipped with a crisp 32″ display and built-in keyboard. Fellow German company Alphatronics Stream ensures you won’t have to deal with flimsy internet providers, as the Cross Cabin boasts a 12-kWh high-speed mobile router.
In addition to serving its purpose from a function perspective, the materials used to compose its interior promote a soundproofed workspace, ensuring proper acoustics that won’t distract you from your day job (or recording session). As you move to the other end of the conceptual camper, you will find a highly-capable, swing-out kitchen with an induction plate, foldable faucet, and a compressor refrigerator. You’ll find the shower-equipped bathroom with a few more steps toward the driver’s side. Accomodation-wise, the Cross Cabin’s lounge area can be transformed into a nearly-queen-sized bed with its included cold foam mattress.
While Alpine has not put forth any information on whether this concept will come to life, you can revel in renders of the Cross Cabin on its website.
