Dapper, charming and ambitious – those are the attributes that best describe Don Draper, the main protagonist of the American period drama TV series Mad Men. And that’s the same character that inspired Land Ark, a Colorado startup, in creating a mid-century modern RV they call Draper. Featuring a simple yet sophisticated design with the use of clean lines, it reflects the personality and style of Don Draper. Furthermore, its gorgeous simplicity embodies the mid-century design movement. And it’s only fitting since the Mad Men’s fictional time frame runs in the mid-century.
The Draper RV delivers a functional layout featuring large windows and an angled roof. It sports an all-black exterior except for the brown side panel that can be folded down to make an elevated outdoor patio. You can place a table and some chairs on the fold-down deck. So you can enjoy the outdoors once you’ve settled on a good spot.
