Simon Cowell is also a good example of celebrities who seem friendly and close, but they aren’t. Back in the day when he was still on the televised X Factor competition (the US version), he never used any of the trailers the production company made available for other talents, including Ryan Seacrest or L.A. Reid. Instead, he got a luxury monster RV from Anderson Mobile Estates.
If the Anderson Mobile Estates name rings a bell, it’s for good reason: This is the same company that, in early 2010, provided trailers for Will Smith (he still ranks as the most expensive celebrity of all time), Mariah Carey, Vin Diesel and Jamie Foxx. And Sylvester Stallone. It specializes in custom conversions featuring patented layouts and a system that expands the top to a second floor, boasting stunning interior volume and insane amenities.
As such, Quill was only expected to turn to them for help. Usually, Anderson Mobile Estates doesn’t sell these giant trailers, but they do make them for a commission to some customers. The person who ordered it will use it for as long as they need it, and then the trailer goes back to the manufacturer, who continues to rent it. This means Coyle never owned this RV, which is officially called Hollywood, but reports suggest he’s used it for about three or four years, starting in 2010.
If you know anything about Cowell apart from his TV image i.e. his passion for expensive cars, his real estate portfolio, or his fortune, Hollywood probably won’t surprise you. It’s big, so luxurious, and so full of things that, at the time it was used, it was the perfect center from which Simon ran his business empire. Oh, and it also has one bedroom, two bathrooms, and a mobile medical unit, just in case.
Like some of the other Anderson Mobile Estate trailers we’ve covered on this site, The Hollywood also has sliders and a pop-up extension on the roof, doubling the living space by pulling a second story from the first. In total, it offers 1,200 square feet (111.5 square meters) of living space on 22 wheels, and the trailer weighs 40 tons.
Within this space, you will find a fully equipped kitchen, lounge, office and beauty station on the ground floor. The makeup station is also the medical unit, with more than $150,000 in medical equipment and an on-call doctor, RJ Anderson told HGTV in an old interview. Cowell can’t take any time off, so if anything is bothering him, he wants to be able to chat with a doctor ASAP. His medical unit contains everything from thermometers to high-tech cameras to an ECG glove that allows an on-call doctor to diagnose Quill from a distance. It’s as if Cowell predicted the current trends of online consultations, if the joke allows.
Also on the ground floor is one bathroom, entirely of granite. The floors, walls and ceilings are decorated with the finest Italian leather, and the wooden furniture is finished in Italy with 20 layers of handcrafted finishes. The centerpiece is occupied by a lounge with a custom corrugated sofa in front of an oversized TV that can be attached to a live feed from X Factor, so Cowell can catch up when he’s not on set.
The bedroom, which is not shown in the photos or in the video at the bottom of the page because Coyle was still using it when it was taken, has smart glass that can turn opaque at the touch of a button. Anderson calls it “Giga Glass” and says it’s a proprietary technology that, at the time, was retailing for $25,000 a sheet. The idea is that Coyle loves his privacy and doesn’t mind paying more for it.
Upstairs is another lounge, this time larger – and the only one said to be large enough to accommodate Quill’s very large entourage. It includes a U-shaped sofa that can easily accommodate 30 people, a bar and another desk. This area can be used for business or leisure purposes, and we have no doubts that it has seen plenty of both.
Hollywood comes with three 60-inch 3D TVs, 26 speakers and the latest technology, including a fingerprint reader for access to the master bedroom. It also has solar tinted glass on the windows, privacy screens and, as mentioned above, the finest quality leather, hardwood floors, marble and granite countertops.
From a 2022 perspective, the trailer design is dated, no matter how much materials used, although not as dated as Smith or even Maria. If you feel like a charity, you could almost say it’s aging decently, unless you think about the financial aspect: $2 million to buy and $9,000 a week to maintain.
