EarthRoamer XV-LTs are very easy to drive both on and off road have no special licensing requirements. If you can drive a full size pick-up truck, you can drive an EarthRoamer. In fact the Ford F-550 cab is exactly the same cab that is used on Ford F-250s. XV-LTs are a foot or more narrower than many other expedition vehicles and RVs and which enables driving in small towns and on narrow roads and trails. Many expedition vehicles and RVs are simply too big to go where an EarthRoamer XV-T can go. The Ford F-550 also features a tight 50 degree wheel cut that enables very tight turning circles and contributes greatly to easy maneuverability.
