Finding ways to take advantage of a long commute.

In order to remain a San Diegan, Rivers invested in just about the most L.A. vehicle ever.


Three days a week during the season he will make the commute from his San Diego home to the Chargers’ Costa Mesa facility. It’s a trek many know too well – and dread.


Rivers will do it in a different, more efficient manner.


Essentially, his mode of transportation is a mobile man cave with the seats like those in a first class airplane set side-by-side in the back facing forward, plenty of room for a 6-foot-5 quarterback to fully recline while watching film on the 40-inch television screen separating the front seat and rear cabin. There is satellite TV, WiFi and a small refrigerator Rivers would rather you call a cooler.
For upwards of $200,000 (plus a driver’s salary), anyone can make the freeway melt away.

But be sure, this was an investment made only after much investigation and introspection, for the right reasons.
“My two biggest things were my family time and my preparation and what I owe this football team,” Rivers said. “I was not going to sacrifice either of them in any big proportion. I can look at all the pluses and minuses and say, ‘OK. This does it.’ This allows me to get home in the 6 to 7 hour, which is when I got home the last 11 years, and it allows me to watch all or more of the film I watched before.”
