You know him as “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” an action movie star, a comedian, and a rapper. But did you know Will Smith is also an RVer?
You likely won’t see him at your next campground or pass him on the highway, but he does have an RV that serves as his escape on movie sets. If you think it’s a luxury fifth wheel or Airstream, think bigger and with more features. Let’s check out what makes his RV so unbelievable.
Will Smith Has an RV, and It’s Unreal
Will Smith’s RV is otherworldly looking. It’s so unreal that when walking by it, you might wonder if you’re in his movie, “Men in Black.”
The RV has two stories. And we don’t mean that the second story is a loft; the RV is actually two floors high. The trailer, pulled by a semi-truck cab and nicknamed “The Heat,” is 1,200 square feet. It’s so big that it has 22 wheels.
Just What’s So Crazy About Will Smith’s RV?
Will Smith’s RV is loaded with features and amenities worthy of royalty. There’s $30,000 worth of leather throughout the trailer. The residential-style kitchen has granite countertops and high-end appliances.
The bedroom has a wardrobe with “Star Trek” like doors. And, of course, there’s a makeup mirror to get Will camera-ready. The residential full bathroom runs the entire width of the RV. Plus, it has a steam shower.
About $100,000 worth of technology went into the RV. It has 14 TV screens that appear with the push of a button. And with another button press, the RV transforms into a two-story mansion on wheels.
\When you climb the stairs to the second floor, you’ll find a screening room that can seat up to 30 people. Lined with windows on each wall, you can keep the natural light coming in or bring down the shades.
How Much Does Will Smith’s RV Cost?
Will Smith’s RV costs about $2.5 million. About $200,000 went into the kitchen and its top-of-the-line appliances. The residential bathroom is worth $25,000. Add on the leather and technology throughout, and you can see what drives up the price.

Anderson Mobile Estates in Elgin, Texas, designed the RV. They’re a custom luxury coach maker. Many of their customers are celebrities. They developed the two-story expanding mobile trailer, which includes yacht-like amenities and luxuries. You can rent Will Smith’s RV for $9,000 per week through their website.

A two-story RV might not work in most campgrounds. And let’s face it, experienced RVers know that when you have that much technology in an RV, it’s just more things that can break. Insurance alone on something that monstrous is going to be steep. But what do you think? Is it worth it?
