Radiation-Proof RVs: Peace of Mind for the Paranoid

So, you’re looking for the perfect gift for that special someone in your life. You know, that “special” someone. The one who kept the Cold War fallout shelter — just in case. The Purell-toting, medical-mask-wearing someone who, instead of reading his horoscope, predicts how good his day will be based on the terror alert color codes. Look no further. A luxury recreation vehicle that can withstand nuclear radiation is the ideal present.


A recreational vehicle that withstands nuclear radiation? Really? And … why?

Parliament Coach in Clearwater, Fla., has partnered with Homeland Defense Vehicles to cater to our country’s paranoid demographic. Parliament Coach converts Prevost buses into luxury recreation vehicles with a twist.


Do you think this RV could set this  “special” person at ease?


Yes. Not only does this luxury recreation vehicle protect its occupants from nuclear radiation and dirty bombs, but it also protects them from biological and chemical attacks.


What else is there to be scared of?

Well, for starters, there’s the airborne strain of the Ebola virus. But let’s stay focused.


What does one of these RVs cost?

It ain’t cheap. For $1.2 million, you get a luxury interior that sleeps two to four people (i.e. the survivors) complete with amenities like a satellite navigation system and plasma TVs (although I doubt they’ll be able to watch TV since all the television stations will likely have been destroyed). And for an extra $100,000, the company throws in an air filtration system.


Why not? What’s another 100 grand after you’ve spent $1 million, right?

Right. After all, what’s Uncle Pete’s peace of mind worth? And because this is a luxury item, Parliament Coach is only going to produce 12 of these “special” RVs a year. So if Uncle Pete does manage to survive the disaster, he can take comfort in the fact that he’s not only alive, but driving a collector’s item.
