Suitemovil S.L., a 100% Andalusian subsidiary of El Grupo de Empresas Fersa, has created the $500,000 home away from home. The Hotelmovil is a vehicle that converts into a 50-person, high-end hotel — no heavy lifting required. Due to the vehicle's hydraulic system, the hotel is essentially able to set itself up without any human assistance in as little as 30 minutes. And when compacted for traveling, it is roughly the size of an 18-wheeler, measuring 52 feet by 8 feet by 26 feet, which easily allows users to travel to nearly any destination of choice.
Not having to set up your hotel is one added bonus of the Hotelmovil; not having to take it down is another. The Hotelmovil was designed so that it isn't necessary to install or disassemble furniture such as beds, lamps, decorative features, etc. Each unit folds up and packs itself away, allowing you to leave rapidly and proceed to your next destination.
In addition to preventing the owner from having to participate in any manual labor, the Hotelmovil is fitted with everything an individual would want in a traveling residence. The tri-level hotel houses eight rooms on the first floor and three suites, each with its own balcony, on the second; each room comes equipped with its own bathroom. The second floor also features a sun deck to ensure that even while traveling, the hotel's guests can still relax, catch some rays, and maybe even get a great tan.

And what happens if the Hotelmovil doesn't have something you want? You can customize it to suit your individual needs. For example, rooms can be modified to serve as meeting rooms or dressing rooms. "Suitemovil S.L. makes bespoke vehicles, developed with the latest technology, that could just as easily be adapted for use as mobile hospitals, workshops, television studios, dressing rooms, changing rooms, recreation accommodation, educational facilities, offices, showrooms, conference facilities, etc."
So the next time you plan to travel, ensure that you do it in the comfort and class of a Hotelmovil. And as you prepare for your extended cross-country trip, put in Nelson's CD and simply sing along: "On the road again / Goin' places that I've never been / Seein' things that I may never see again, / And I can't wait to get on the road again."
