EarthRoamer is no stranger to building high-end, custom, off-road RVs. The Colorado-based company has been building them since 1998. Their main model, the XV-LT, is built using the Ford F-550 Super Duty platform. It’s a go-anywhere rig designed for off-the-grid living. Well, now the company is building something even bigger – the XV-HD. It’s based on the massive Ford F-750 medium-duty truck and is converted to 4WD with a solid front axle. The fiberglass body is one large piece with no seam, and the interior is fully customizable and built to suit each owner. Obviously, something like this won’t be cheap – and it’s not. It carries a price tag of $1.7 million.

The truck (building on wheels?) has 46-inch-tall mud-terrain tires, a 30,000-pound recovery winch inside its custom front bumper. It can carry 115 gallons of diesel fuel, 250 gallons of fresh water, and its solar panel array generates 2,100 watts of power and feeds a 20,000 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Oh, and there’s an automatically starting generator should the batteries need to be recharged in the dark.

There is a ton more information, so keep reading for the details.

The F-750 has been converted to have the King Ranch interior

On the Ford side of things, the F-750 has been converted to have the King Ranch interior. Gone are the vinyl floors and seats – all replaced with high-end materials from the Western-themed trim line. The only negative is Ford hasn’t updated the F-750 to the current Super Duty interior, so the dash and SYNC system feel a bit dated. As mentioned, the I-beam front axle is swapped for a heavy-duty drive axle to make it 4WD. Both front and rear axles feature air-ride suspension that’s auto-leveling.

Power comes from the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8. In the F-750 configuration, the turbodiesel makes 330 horsepower and 725 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The EarthRoamer XV-HD measures a whopping 35 feet long, is 8.5-feet wide, and barely clears bridges at 13 feet, six-inches tall. But, despite its gargantuan size, the XV-HD has an approach angle of 46 degrees, a breakover angle of 12 degrees, and a departure angle of 23 degrees. Ground clearance measures an impressive 12 inches.

A $375,000 deposit is required to secure one and the soonest EarthRoamer can deliver an XV-HD ordered now would be in late 2018 or early 2019

Earthroamer says the first three XV-HDs have been ordered and are under construction with more on back-order. A $375,000 deposit is required to secure one and the soonest EarthRoamer can deliver an XV-HD ordered now would be in late 2018 or early 2019 – a full year from now. That’s really not surprising considering the company has roughly 50 employees and is privately held. When the build is done, you’ll need another $1,125,000 to drive home. Of course, the price will vary depending on what type of custom work is added. EarthRoamer will finish out the interior in whatever materials you wish, making the XV-HD just a decked out as your stationary mansion.
