An increasing number of celebrities enjoy relaxing in the same way we do—in a recreational vehicle.
And an increasing number of off-road RVs are rolling off production lines, up mountains, across deserts, and right past traditional RV parks and campgrounds.
Grammy-winning musician and songwriter John Mayer decided he needed the ultimate recreational vehicle, a formidable go-anywhere, live-anywhere vehicle.
So he did what any guy with hundreds of thousands of dollars to spare might do—headed to Dacono, Colorado, and the folks at EarthRoamer.
The difference between these RVs and grandma-and-grandpa rigs starts from the ground up. Your typical recreational vehicle is a luxury home-on-wheels, but it’s also a cumbersome beast that requires modern roads and spacious camping spaces.
The average off-road RV chassis is far more compact and agile often including 4-wheel drive, oversized tires, and even lift kits.
Arguably, the most off-road capable RVs on the planet, EarthRoamer, is built on the chassis of a Ford 550 or 650 4X4 pickup truck.
But these off-road condos aren’t solely focused on taking you into the backcountry; they also help you thrive once you’re there.
Mayer posted a photo of his new massive truck on Instagram and wrote in the caption, “I am a proud owner of this most formidable go-anywhere, live-anywhere vehicle.”
“One year and many meetings in the making, she’s all mine. Completely hand-built in Colorado by extremely talented and innovative men and women. Who knows where I’ll end up next.”
Mayer could end up most anywhere.
Measuring in at more than 26 feet long, the Ford F-550-based EarthRoamer is designed to go around, through, and over just about anything.
Inside, the XV-LTS has an overcab bunk compartment, storage cabinets, a bathroom, shower, kitchenette, and seating for up to eight.
Powering this turbodiesel four-wheel drive behemoth is a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8, packing 300-hp and 660 pound-feet of torque.
Think Hummer + Land Rover +Jeep + high-tech house all rolled into one state-of-the-art package.
But before you custom-order your EarthRoamer keep in mind that prices start at $280,000 for these Xpedition vehicles, with no options. Add on a lot of extra features and you’ll get to a cool million.
No word on the final tab for Mayer’s custom job.
The vehicles weigh 13,000 to 17,000 pounds, yet still average 12 miles per gallon on the highway thanks to that turbo diesel powerplant under the hood.
