Bend, Oregon-based EarthCruiser, maker of adventure vehicles, announced the introduction of  a new product, an attachable camper, in a recent blog on the company’s website.

The blog post reads in part as follows:

“Now that the cat’s out of the bag, let’s take a look at the newest addition to the family. The EarthCruiser GZL is a little camper that slides onto the back of your Tacoma or Nissan. Much different from the EarthCruisers you know and love, but at the same time very familiar. The design reflects the comfort and thoughtfulness of the full sized campers, but is considerably more compact. The pop up top offers more space when you reach your destination.

“The base GZL comes with a pop up roof, seating for four, an internal shower and toilet, and much more. It’s all you could want out of your camper, and as with any of our vehicles there are many ways to customize the GZL to fit your lifestyle and preferences.”

The GZL is EarthCruiser’s first detachable camper, representing a departure from the company’s line of solar and diesel-powered trucks.

The new camper has seating for four people, as well as a shower and a toilet, and would be ideal for small families. The campers are currently compatible with the Nissan Frontier and Toyota short or long bed trucks, and will be modified to work with other brands later this year.

Worth Pondering…

The journey is difficult, immense. We will travel as far as we can, but we cannot in one lifetime see all that we would like to see or to learn all that we hunger to know.
