Overland Classifieds :: EARTHCRUISER #64 “Better Than New”

There’s no right or wrong way to travel, and what works for one person might not suit you. Some folks enjoy occasional weekend adventures, others allot weeks or months each year for extended trips, and a minority travel full-time. Similarly, some people want to pack light and embrace a more simplistic way of life, whilst others want to explore with all the comforts of home. There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to overlanding, and each approach has its pros and cons. The vehicle featured today is targeted at those committed to long-term off-grid adventure, and whilst the $334,900 price tag is considerable, one has to recognise that this is a luxury home on wheels.

I appreciate that EarthCruisers are expensive, and I’m the first person to point out that you could build or purchase an incredible overland rig, then circumnavigate the world multiple times over, for a fraction of the asking price. However, lower your pitchforks for just a moment, and put things into perspective. A used 2015 Ferrari 458 Italia Speciale is currently for sale in New Jersey for $465,000. That’s over $120,000 more, and yes, it’s a Ferrari, but it’s still just a car. Alternatively, EarthCruisers are rolling homes, engineered from the ground up with the very best components. For those lucky enough to afford them, they can be a platform that enables years of global exploration. I highly doubt I’ll ever be able to afford one, but it’s nice to dream.

From Daniel:

“The three key things I love about the EarthCruiser are the setup, size of the truck, and materials used. The interior arrangement has been so carefully considered, for example, using the bathroom as a walk-through “dirty entrance,” which provides the opportunity to remove muddy shoes and clothes before entering the living space. Every aspect has been meticulously considered and maximises space and functionality. Consequently, the total setup is only 22 feet [in length], yet provides all the amenities you’d expect from a house: bathroom, toilet, kitchen (with induction cooktop), double stainless sink, trash disposal, refrigerator, dinette with swivel table, and plenty of cabinets for storage.

The vast majority of materials used in the EarthCruiser were taken from the boat industry, which means they’re very robust, easy to clean, water-resistant, and not cheap. The #64 showcases a fibreglass body and inner walls, Starboard drawers/cabinets, and Mastervolt electrics. Purchased new for $425,000.”
