Ford F-450 EarthRoamer is the ideal way to escape the Rat Race

Perfect for getting away from it all on four wheels

The typical thought of many people when you say the word 'camper' is an underpowered, white plastic box on wheels that clogs up the motorways and dual carriageways of England throughout summer.

Well, forget all that - this is a real camper. Based upon a heavily-modified 2005 Ford F-450, this all-season camper looks more like a bugout vehicle from The Walking Dead than your typical granny camper - and we dig it.

With the standard PowerStroke Diesel V8 being swapped out for a 5.9l Cummins inline-six engine, this house-on-wheels shifts too. The standard 5-speed transmission remains, but it has been upgraded to handle the power, with parts such as performance clutches and billet shafts. All four wheels are driven, meaning you can conquer almost any terrain that takes your fancy.

Designed to tackle all weathers, seasons, and terrains, the suspension has been updated to a new air suspension system, the bodywork was color-sanded and the insulated camper shell was stripped, re-insulated, and refurbished.

The interior itself is also very impressive. Up front, the majority of the cab remains stock, but from the seats back it's a very different story indeed. USB outlets, power outlets and LED lights are scattered throughout, with a new kitchen, beds, and onboard bathroom completing this roaming home.

While you're able to go off-grid with this impressive machine, you won't be totally isolated from the world. There is a cellular antenna and WiFi connectivity built-in, powered by an 875-watt solar array charging a set of on-board batteries.

With many of us having been stuck at home for the majority of 2020, this could be the perfect vehicle to escape everything.

  • This is Ford so any parts are plentiful and not expensive in the States. The camper part looks well thought out and put together. Cummins. It's all set.

  • Not my first choice as a platform for an overland camper, I’ll trade the F450 for a Toyota Hilux and a German engineered cabin, which I reckon will be more cost effective in terms of serviceability for use outside the USA.

    • A. That’s a lot smaller than an F450, and the cabin part is a lot smaller.

      B. Not as powerful engine.

    • One man’s meat is another man’s poison. I’m more concerned about global serviceability and if it’s power I demanded I would have just went with a Unimog based solution. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • I would have left the original diesel. Other than that's it's an expedition vehicle. Now quite a camper, but very cool

  • To get away from the 'rat race', do do not take half the rat race with you! Backpack and go by foot.

    • I take it you don't, for example, consider people with small children..

      Or somebody who wants to actually see a lot.

    • When we were young, around 4 years old, we were dropped off at a Welsh hill cottage by our father (who returned to work... could have been a taxi and train instead) and our mother would take us walking in the hills all day long. I genuinely cannot...
