*Located in Longmont, CO.*
​Model: 2008 EarthRoamer XV-JP
Base Vehicle: Jeep Rubicon
VIN #: *1J8GA69168L508647*
​Color: Dark Forest Green
Mileage: 17,233 miles (New hemi engine installed after appx. 11,000 miles in 2016)
Asking Price: $68,500 OBO

Note from the Owner:
I purchased this vehicle (new) in 2009. Original owner. Original purchase price with the 4.0 standard Jeep engine: appx $120,000.

After using for some trips into the mountains in Colorado I could tell the engine was severely underpowered given the additional weight of the Earthroamer aftermarket RV enhancements.

I used the Jeep sparingly until AEV in conjunction with Boulder Based Pollard Jeep was able to completely replace the engine and suspension (and other items noted on schedule) with a 5.7 liter Hemi which was a huge game changer terms of power and performance.

Please Note:
The Air ride/Lift system which I bought with the Jeep: I disconnected and replaced with the much improved AEV suspension. The Air Ride system proved very problematic and I also did not like the way the vehicle rode and handled with it.
The Jeep was built to be able to use water for the sink, toilet, and shower. My experience with the infrastructure that ER built for the water line created an annual service problem which was expensive and annoying to fix. Additionally you need to winterize quickly in early fall to avoid freeze/lockup when you are camping off the grid. In my opinion the pipes and fittings/connections would twist, or torque too much and the seal(s) were not adequate enough to ensure the integrity of the lines. So- I drained the water tank and lines and do not use anymore. I carry extra water for the sink and toilet. It works fine for me. Simple. No maintenance, and no winterizing/de-winterizing…. although someone industrious might want to fire the system up again and re-seal the lines.
The front bumper has some rust I would be willing to either deduct the price to fix it, or I can take to a body shop and repair it upon the title/transfer/sale of the Earthroamer.

This vehicle is a riot to play with and has been extremely maintenance free with the exception of the two items noted above. We have converted to a camper-style unit and don't use the ER as much anymore. Trying to downside and make more room in our garage.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

Are there any of these still out there?
There was a guy right here trying to sell one early last summer. And I think it was this same vehicle as it also had an engine swap.

It was still unsold, I believe, about a month ago.
