The new EarthRoamer LTi expedition vehicle features an all carbon fiber body that is much stronger and lighter than any traditional RV or overland camper body.
EarthRoamer expedition vehicles have accumulated hundreds of thousands of miles on harsh roads and trails and in every weather condition imaginable. The new EarthRoamer LTi is designed to handle those challenges by using advanced materials and technologies not previously seen in RVs and expedition vehicles.
The most advanced EarthRoamer ever built, the EarthRoamer LTi features a carbon fiber vacuum-infused camper, a lithium-ion battery and is built on the Ford Super Duty F-550 chassis. The use of these advanced materials cut the weight of the LTi by more than 1,000 pounds when compared to the current EarthRoamer LTS.
EarthRoamer LTi bodies are produced using a vacuum infusion process to create and bond two carbon fiber skins to a structural foam core, resulting in a monocoque carbon fiber body that is much stronger and lighter than any traditional RV or overland camper body. This is a new development in the RV and expedition vehicle market, as most manufacturers still use traditional materials and technologies. EarthRoamer has invested heavily in the process, as the LTi bodies are fully designed and manufactured in house at the company’s factory in Dacono, Colorado.
EarthRoamer has come a long way from founder Bill Swails’ dream in 1998 to build an expedition vehicle tough enough and comfortable enough to allow him to travel to remote locations to pursue his passion for wildlife photography. Mr. Swails started by building out his Dodge Ram truck and quickly determined that off the shelf components wouldn’t meet his needs. That’s when he decided to build a camper to his own specifications. In 2003, the EarthRoamer XV-LT was born – XV standing for Xpedition Vehicle and LT for Luxury Terrain.
The EarthRoamer LTi is available with five different floorplans and pricing starts at $590,000.
