Check out this new go anywhere SUV dubbed the EarthRoamer XV-JP. It’s a heavily modified Jeep Rubicon designed for extended expeditions into remote areas. Well, at least remote areas that you can drive to.
The vehicle features an “XV-JP Loftop”, which is a sleeping area which pops out of the top of the truck, and comes equipped with a furnace to keep you warm and an electric fan to cool you down. You’ll also find an 80 watt solar-panel to power the refrigerator, and an on board 25 gallon filtered water tank. A 10 gallon “gray” water tank, outside hot and cold showers (Cold for the nights your significant other won’t let you in the Loftop!) and a 4.5 gallon inside toilet. Oh, and lets not forget the Queen Size bed!
Before you rush out to buy one of these babies however, you should know that it’ll set you back between $200k and $230k. All of that money will help you enjoy the outdoors more, or so the marketing information would have you believe. Not exactly what I would call roughing it though.
Thanks to The Piton for this one.
Update: Always astute reader Carl has pointed out that the XV-JP costs only $100k. When I was checking out the pricing I inadvertently clicked on the larger, more expensive XV-LT model. So anyone who was considering the XV-JP model at the price I was quoting earlier, good news! Now you can afford two!
