Woah! Over the top, but OMG
#1
Just stumbled across these EarthRoamers -- probably old news to most here, and ridiculously overpriced.  Something not right about the rugged exterior and luxury inside...a conundrum for sure.
But still...Woah! Would not turn one down if they were giving them away!

I agree, I would take one if they were giving one away, but I don’t think I could ever justify something that expensive!

Earth Roamer is my lotto fantasy. I like to watch their videos. 

The thing is though, and I find this to be true about most of my lotto fantasies, I'll end up with a much more affordable option and will be almost just as happy. But you know, the day dreaming is fun and costs nothing.

I love the Earthroamers, too but the much more affordable version of these are the Tiger Vehicles, based in South Carolina.

They're 4 wheel drive with good clearance to go off-roading, they have large fresh water capacity to keep you untethered to society, solar panels, cassette toilets, cab over sleeping just like the Earthroamers, and you can get them to configure your rig so your diesel runs all your appliances...no more propane tanks :-)
They're definitely NICE but not super swishy, as you mentioned, Tav....
I always thought if I ever bought an Earthroamer, I'd probably get carjacked by some jealous dudes who totally want to lift it off me. Gah!
They are THAT nice, and definitely not very stealth, so I'd be worried that it screams MONEY.
I'll take a Tiger instead. Way more stealthy.

I keep two earthroamers in the garage.

One for during the week, and one for the weekends.

Said no one ever. (well, maybe Jay Leno)...

Did you see the width of the Earthroamer's entry door? What is it, about a foot wide at most? OMG I couldn't even get inside one turning sideways, not to mention my DWs ample girth. I guess it's just as well as I could never afford one.

I guess when you are on expedition you are too distracted to eat...built in weight loss plan, LOL
...or after purchase you can't afford food!

am wondering if the angle of the picture (in the one I noticed) makes door look skinnier than it actually is.. no matter, never getting one

I was camped at Goosenecks State Park in Utah when a couple dozen of these were gathered. They seemed like a bunch of rich guys pretending to camp. The owners drove them like they were incredibly fragile machines, creeping along a flat dirt road as if they were rock crawling. I guess they didn't want to rattle the china. And heaven help those guys if they ever had to get the spare tire down off the back and wrestle the flat back up.
