Even experienced road warriors need some extra space now and then. Thankfully, the roof of the new EarthCruiser EXP expands at the push of a button, offering more space and more light. The expedition vehicle is basically the Swiss Army Knife of campers, offering a solar power array and a variety of features that make living on the road a much more enjoyable experience.
Whether used as a cabin for a quick weekend getaway or a permanent off-grid home, the EarthCruiser EXP design is meant to provide the ultimate in comfort and reliability. The imposing truck 4X4 chassis gives the vehicle a strong, sturdy body that is, according to the company, “nearly unbreakable.” Although, at just 257 inches wide, it can be easily parked, and even fits into a standard shipping container for easy shipping around the world. The vehicle is made of a lightweight, but strong fiberglass-composite that provides ultra insulating properties, making it especially useful for off-grid living.
The expandable rooftop opens upwards a full 24 inches to provide extra room on the interior. Surrounded by windows, the extended roof helps flood the interior space with natural light. For charging needs, a two-panel solar array is installed on the roof and provides plenty of energy for the vehicle’s electronics. The solar-powered battery can be used for up to 10-days, but if the energy level drops below 50%, an alarm will sound. This system was designed to eliminate the need for a portable generator. The vehicle is also equipped with an advanced water-purification system that allows users to collect clean, safe drinking water from almost any source such as a creek or lake.
