Get an inside look at Joe Maddon's insanely tricked-out RV

In addition to positional shenanigans and positive psychology, Joe Maddon is a big fan of RVs. He binge-watches his favorite television shows in them. He spends entire Spring Trainings in them. He even decorates them with decals:

Recently, Maddon traded in his beloved Cousin Eddie -- the RV in which he first spoke with Theo Epstein about possibly taking the Cubs job -- for a new model. And, thanks to ESPN's Jessica Mendoza, we got an inside look at his new motor home away from home during Sunday night's marathon 5-4 loss to the Yankees. Highlights include:
- An electric fireplace
- A couch that folds out into a bed
- A king-size bed, in case that pull-out couch isn't enough:

  • A big digital control panel
    - And even a washer/dryer, for those days when your minimalist zany suits need a quick clean:

You can watch the video above for the whole tour, including the inside scoop on how that initial conversation with Epstein went (beach chairs were involved, because of course).
