The custom airstream company in Montreal said Madonna's 1975 Airstream Sovereign 31' vehicle was designed in the likeness of a five-star hotel, featuring a custom leather couch and matching armchairs, retractable 50-inch TV monitors, a minibar and ice bin, heated floors, a tufted wall with custom light fixtures, a top-of-the-line sound system and custom under-carriage lights.
The RV even converts into a cigar lounge, built with a custom humidor and commercial air purifiers.
The price tag? A cool $200,000 USD. And Custom Airstream said other custom builds could cost up to $500,000 USD.
It's not the first time the Montreal-based camper customization company has worked with Madge. It also partnered with her on a "personal project" she hosted in the Hamptons in 2014.
"We're beyond excited to be part of Madonna's fun family moment," said a statement by David Schirmer, vice-president of sales and marketing at Custom Airstream.
"We woke up to a flood of phone calls, email and social media messages. People have been knocking down our door – it's been overwhelming in the best way possible. It's such an honour for our humble Québec company to add a little magic to Madonna's American Life!"

There are also three restaurants and, of course, one of them features ski chalet favourites, such as fondue and raclette.

For additional costs, guests can also try out Quebec activities like ice-skating, dog sledding, and sugar shack visits during the winter or biking, hiking and whale watching during warmer months.
