CM of Karnataka along with the tourism Minister CT Ravi flagged off a fully-equipped Camper Van called the Luxe Camper that promises to bring in a whole new dimension to the concept of travel. The campers are now available in Karnataka & soon will be available across the country.

The LuxeCamper has been approved by the ARAI as per the AIS-124 standards. The motorhomes are based on an Ashok Leyland chassis with a 4,200mm wheelbase.
The camper comprises two independent compartments for driver and the passengers. It lounge at the rear which can be converted into a queen-sized bed, along with a motorised, suspended queen bed at the front for the accommodation.
