Super Size Me!
It’s been on the drawing boards for awhile, but high demand for our popular XV-LT model has resulted in limited resources to devote to our XV-HD. Current plans are to finalize the molds and XV-HD prototype camper body fourth quater 2014, begin assembly in 2015 and complete unit 1 summer of 2015.

Do you need to carry more people, haul more gear, or pull a bigger trailer? Then EarthRoamer has the Xpedition Vehicle for you – our Ford F-650 based EarthRoamer XV-HD. The “HD” stands for Heavy Duty and this beast is the very definition of heavy duty.
The F-650 is the “hat trick” of trucks – a class leading Ford Super Duty truck powered by a legendarily reliable Cummins turbo-diesel engine delivering power though a dependably durable Allison transmission. With up to 363 horsepower and 800 foot pounds of torque being delivered to a an Allison 6-speed automatic transmission driving massive 46 inch diameter, 18 inch wide tires mounted on military wheels, the EarthRoamer XV-HD is ready to tackle the biggest overland challenges on the planet.
Just like our best-selling EarthRoamer XV-LT, the EarthRoamer XV-HD uses a seamless, one-piece molded composite body. Unlike the EarthRoamer XV-LT that is only available in three body lengths, the EarthRoamer XV-HD is available in 24 different lengths ranging from 15.3 feet to 32.5 feet to match every length Ford F-650 chassis available. Three different truck cab configurations are available (regular cab, super cab and crew cab) providing 52 different XV-HD configurations. In fact, a shorter camper could be installed on a longer chassis with a fifth wheel hitch or flat bed on the back providing an almost limitless number of combinations. Overall finished EarthRoamer XV-HD vehicle lengths available range from a short of 19.7 feet (shorter than the shortest XV-LT!) to a gargantuan 36.8 feet long.
Window and door openings are molded into the one-piece composite body using movable “plugs”. The ability to locate doors and windows anywhere on the vehicle and the availability of much more interior volume enables us to design and build a custom interior layout to meet virtually any requirement.
