Thanks to the EarthRoamer, even the fussiest mom could imagine camping this summer. Designed for up to four people, this built from a basic Ford 550 model and then souped up. When set up as a camper it has 6' 5" stand-up height in camper and a California King-size over-cab bunk.
What's New in the World of Camping
I'm totally into the concept of glamping. Luxury camping is definitely my idea of fun in the outdoors. Now with a ride this cool, I think the RV trend might be for me as well.
Yes, it will require fuel, but we love these green features. The Roamer is self-contained and not dependent on external water or power hookups. The car's batteries are charged by rooftop solar panels and dual engine alternators while driving.
It's a solar/diesel hybrid with four-wheel drive that can get just about anywhere--mountains or sea. They've been around since 1998 and now make a few models and have a pre-owned market as well.
What is it like inside the Earth Roamer
The Roamer's got a shower, highly efficient kitchen and a cassette toilet waste handling system. There's a 85 gallon water tank--hello hot shower after a long hike! It's the ideal way yo get to all those national parks and enjoy world-class hiking with your family.
The interiors are luxurious (as you would imagine at this price point and there's loads of customization to be done.
