We’re ready to quit our day jobs and go explore the planet
For the uninitiated, EarthCruiser makes some of the most incredible, expensive adventure rigs on the market—they run upwards of $200,000. Designed and tested in Australia but now built in Bend, Oregon, EarthCruisers are based on a 4WD Mitsubishi Fuso platform and designed to be the go-anywhere, self-sufficient base camp of your dreams. These things get about 15 miles per gallon and can take you completely off the grid for months at a time, thanks to diesel- and solar-power systems and 80-gallon water tanks.
