In the same way that there’s a distinction to be made between a supercar and a hypercar, there’s similarly a differentiation between most premium expedition trucks and those produced by Global Expedition Vehicles (GXV). Based in Springfield, Missouri, the company has built a reputation for producing the ultimate luxury expedition vehicles. Founder Michael Van Pelt had grown frustrated with the limitations of traditional RVs and campers, so decided to build his dream off-grid capable rolling home built on a Mercedes Unimog (inspired by one he’d seen crossing dunes in a National Geographic magazine). In 2006, he shipped his creation to South America for a life-changing trip, and it eclipsed his expectations. He later explained that because the vehicle was so exceptionally capable and self-contained, it provided a level of freedom he and his wife had never experienced. In an interview with Storyteller Overland, he stated: “That trip became the best year of our lives. It literally was a transformative experience for me that I thought everyone ought to enjoy.” Upon his return, Global Expedition Vehicles was born. Today the vehicles are “custom-built and designed by our staff’s extensive travel knowledge to help overlanders foresee requirements related to their travel adventures.” Today’s super low-mileage 2021 Global Expedition Vehicle Patagonia (14,500 miles) is the last word in off-grid luxury travel and has both the capability and amenities to support the most ambitious trips. Further still, this particular offering was optioned with a long list of additional desirable features, which are documented in the original build sheet (contact the seller for more info). Whether you’re planning to explore the US or travel around the world, this turnkey rolling home will enable you to do so in unparalleled comfort.
