La Aduana: 2006 Earthroamer XV-LT

Gaze at an Earthroamer long enough and your head instantly fills with romantic visions of far flung destinations, hours behind the wheel, cozy nights, warm showers, and tasty meals prepared in an actual kitchen. They are beautiful machines to behold with their creature comforts only matched by their off-road capabilities. The pre-owned market for these already rare trucks has precious little to offer, but they do pop up from time to time. Here we have XV-LT #30 with less than 50,000 miles on the odometer. Fully inspected and certified as an Earthroamer Certified pre-owned vehicle, it has undergone an extensive evaluation with more than 500 inspection points. Built around a 2006 Ford F550 Crew Cab with a V8 turbo diesel, this is turnkey adventure on an epic scale. All you need is to fill the tank, load up the fridge, and fork over $160,000.
