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.
