2022 Ford F-550 Kokopelli Overland Expo Build :: Featured Classified

Ford F-550 expedition camper.

Without getting too deep into the weeds, there is a differentiation to be made between an overland rig and an expedition vehicle. Both serve much the same purpose and can be either a part- or full-time home, but broadly speaking, the latter offers more comfort and can be off-grid for longer durations (learn more on the fundamental differences by listening to Principles of Overlanding :: Expedition Campers on the Overland Journal Podcast).

I’ve lived on the road full-time for the best part of 10 years, and while I still love my compact rolling home, I increasingly understand the appeal of these bigger vehicles. There’s a lot to be said for a fixed bed, a hot shower, a comfortable seating area, and enough power to sustain your lifestyle. It’s not that I’ve fallen out of love with the simple life or a minimalist lightweight setup, but with a commitment to travelling and working on the road indefinitely, a well-equipped live-in rig is very appealing. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of luxury expedition vehicles on the market from the likes of EarthRoamer, EarthCruiser, and Global Expedition Vehicles. However, with a half-a-million dollar or more base price, these vehicles are prohibitively expensive. Cue today’s stunning 2022 Ford F-550 expedition vehicle built by Shiro Overland Camper Co., which represents excellent value at $299,000. I appreciate that’s a considerable sum of money, but it’s a bargain when you consider the comparable EarthRoamer LTi has a starting price of $730,000. If you’d like to deep dive the Kokopelli’s extensive specifications, I highly recommend checking it out on the Shiro Overland Co. website.

From the Seller:

The Kokopelli was designed with comfort as the driving objective. The vehicle suspension has been custom-tuned to the total weight of the vehicle to ensure a comfortable ride on long days on washboard roads. On the inside our open layout combined with large, safari-style windows lets you enjoy the outside from the comfort of your camper. With a clear line of sight from the living space to entry and sleeping areas, the Kokopelli camper has a feeling of spaciousness even in a relatively compact footprint.”
