Louisiana-based Hollywood Trucks, the nation’s fastest growing entertainment transportation provider, has announced the launch of Ecoluxe, the world’s first line of luxury talent trailers fueled by 100 percent clean power. Designed under the direction of Hollywood Trucks CEO Andre Champagne and a team of industry professionals, Ecoluxe incorporates contemporary design with cutting-edge technology to create the most ecologically friendly talent trailer on the market. Beta versions of the Ecoluxe line are already utilized by many A-list stars and productions filming in Louisiana and Georgia, otherwise known as “Hollywood South.”
“Hollywood Trucks started beta testing the first Ecoluxe trailers only last year, and we have been very excited by the favorable response from the entertainment community,” said Andre Champagne, CEO of Hollywood Trucks. “Our team of industry experts built the Ecoluxe trailer from the ground up, keeping only the most luxurious, green, and technologically advanced features in mind. This allows our clients to enjoy a truly comfortable experience while productions save money on fuel and drastically reduce their total environmental impact. We’re proud to be a leader in our industry’s continued support of eco-friendly best practices through technological advancements.”
The Ecoluxe line is powered by a patent pending 100 percent clean energy system comprised of an advanced combination of solar and thermal technologies. A hybrid backup generator for emergencies is approved to utilize B20 biodiesel or ultra-clean, renewable synthetic diesel. Additional plug-in capabilities allow the trailer to run virtually silent at 25-30 decibels, another industry first. Energy efficient, low-voltage LED lights illuminate the 3-form® countertops that are made from post-consumer recycled plastics. The huge wrap around couch is covered in eco-friendly fabric and faces massive mirrored walls with embedded flat screens. Large Hehr® privacy windows keep the trailer cooler in any environment by reducing exposure to UVA/UVB rays. In recognition of its eco-friendly design, Ecoluxe has already received TRA Certification.
“When I first saw the Ecoluxe trailer I was amazed,” said Mandy Leazenby, Green Program Manager for TRA Certification, Inc., one of the recreational vehicle industry’s leading certifying agencies. “Ecoluxe has set a new standard for the entertainment transportation industry by proving that you don’t need to sacrifice luxury to create an ultra-environmentally friendly product. At TRA we are so impressed with Hollywood Trucks’ Ecoluxe trailer that we are using it as the benchmark for our 2014 Emerald Certification.
The expertly designed and technologically advanced interior features energy efficient 72” Samsung® 3-D flat screen smart TVs with 3-D surround sound, Apple® iMacs and wireless printers, Nest Co2 and smoke detectors, Apple TV, DirecTV® HD, Sony Playstation® 4, and Apple Extreme high-speed internet throughout the entire unit. All components are completely wireless and can be controlled from a smart device.
The top-of-the-line 43-foot long 5thwheel model is the largest, most luxurious, and technologically advanced Ecoluxe unit to feature the company’s proprietary 100 percent clean energy system. The Ecoluxe fleet also includes one, two and three room trailers with wardrobe units and hair and make-up models in development. Beta versions of the current Ecoluxe line have been used by stars like Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Will Farrell, Kevin Hart, Bruno Mars, Ryan Reynolds, Omar Epps, Ben Affleck, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Chris Rock, and the entire casts of the hit FX Series “American Horror Story” and 20th Century Fox’s “Fantastic Four” among many others.
