Function Meets Form

The cab-over platform offers cinema-like visibility making every bend in the road a new vista.

“We sometimes drive much further than we planned, just because the view is so incredible. My husband will tell me it’s time to stop because it’s almost pitch black outside.”

Heidi, EC #3

TRUE INDEPENDENCE AND SAFETY​

The EarthCruiser’s redundant power system guarantees the comforts of home while on the road.

“Our EarthCruiser was the same price as a cabin and takes us places we could otherwise never afford to sleep. Plus, no property taxes!"

Maile, EC #56

support when you need it

Engineered for unparalleled reliability and performance. Designed to be serviceable anywhere on the planet.

Should something go wrong, EarthCruiser’s Isuzu platform can be serviced with an extensive global deal network.

Every decision matters

Engineered for Adventure, from the Bull Bar to The spare

In an EarthCruiser, every design, engineering, and sourcing decision is made with intention and informed by years of overlanding experience. Made to run with precision and reliability over any terrain you can throw at it, every single bolt, plate, and component in an EarthCruiser is chosen specifically in service of a seamless adventure. No detail has gone unscrutinized, so you can adventure with confidence.

Built for ultimate portability

Designed and built to EarthCruiser spec, we packed the most rugged platform into a very small footprint. The Isuzu NPR features General Motor’s latest powertrain technology. EarthCruiser’s proprietary drive train system utilizes heavy-duty, industry-tested componentry, engineered to tackle tough terrain with ease. With specially selected gearing and the ability to select multiple drive options, this truck performs flawlessly on tight city streets, and on wide-open sand dunes in the Sahara.

There are submersible 100% duty cycle air compressors handy for needing to air up after a long day on the trails. Sitting in the Scheel-Mann seats made just for EarthCruiser, you’ll never feel numb after a long trip again.

Designed to handle anything you can throw at it

The housing of the EarthCruiser EXP is designed to go anywhere in the world, thanks to its versatile and reliable design. Shippable in a container, thanks to its house that matches the height of the cab during travel, the EXP housing vertically extends to provide a roomy interior when at camp. Hundreds of hours went into engineering our pop-up structure, built to handle decades of use and proven in some of the most extreme conditions on land and when shipped across the sea. The shape helps these trucks optimize your living space, reduce wind drag, and keep trail-worthy bashes to a minimum. The white exterior and built-in insulation keeps the interior comfortable in most conditions and reduces your energy use. The EXP flexible canopy is made out of tri-layer, marine-grade laminate, and includes 360-degree windows equipped with zippered clear vinyl, bug, and privacy screens. In thermal testing, this material performed just as well as our hard-sided FX.

The house rides on a subframe using our proprietary kinetic mounting system. This system allows the chassis to flex freely without putting unnecessary stress on the house components, and holds the water and battery weight low to optimize the EXPs center of gravity.

Reliable systems that look the part and do the work.

Our wheel, tire, and suspension packages are more than about looking the part. Each component was selected and tested to increase your off-road capability, passing the rigorous brake and maneuverability tests required in Australia, the United States, and across the world with a fully weighted truck. The result: a system that not only surpasses global testing, but one that ensures performance, reliability, and longevity in even the most extreme conditions. The EXP feels stable at 70mph, stays within a wheel track, optimizes articulation through rocks, and is easily maintained worldwide.

Your safety is our obsession

Safety is our #1 concern, so we designed a system of integrity regardless of the conditions. The bull bar is designed to offer robust proection on the front of the vehicle. We fabricate heavy-duty skid plates to protect every critical component under the truck.

Two sets of rear brake and turning lights are mounted high and low to achieve maximum visibility to other drivers without being blocked by any external gear. The light bar brings versatility and lighting power to the forefront by allowing you to adjust your lighting to the ever-changing driving conditions with the flick of a switch. You get both a long-distance, broad spot beam, and an amber wide-elliptical-shaped beam to pierce through the night in dust, fog, and snowy conditions.

When the going gets stuck, there are recovery points located on all sides of the vehicle. For self-recovery, we installed industry-proven 16.5ti-s heavyweight winch, providing 16,500 lbs. of pull capacity. A spare wheel and tire are secured on a powered lowering and lifting rear carrier, changing a flat tire on your EarthCruiser is no different from changing one on a pickup truck. We intentionally stay away from military tires, these are difficult to change, balance, or find on the road.

Integrated spaces, easily accessed

Every inch of storage in the EarthCruiser is made with intention, helping you store your messy gear inside in easy access external storage systems that get your gear out of the way and keep them protected.

The 2 side locker boxes are spacious enough to hold multiple sets of skis, while the rear tow bar includes three 2” hitch receivers for those building custom racks for their gear. All compartments are lockable and highly secure to provide peace of mind.

The optional roof rack is easily accessible by a side cab ladder, and is a great place to store long items like surf boards, kayaks, and canoes. It is also a great way to access your roof for clearing solar panels or setting up your tripod for optimal scenic photography.


Thoughtfully designed to maximize your space

Every inch of the living space in an EarthCruiser was designed for best-in-class ergonomics and comfort. Our intelligently designed interiors offer comfortable places to eat, sleep and relax without needing a massive amount of space. The integrated pass-through makes it easy to go back and forth without leaving the vehicle. The bed fits seamlessly in the main living space of the truck, and the separate dinette area seats four comfortably. The dinette area allows for additional sleeping quarters when the table is lowered. The sky bed holds up to 150lbs, making it perfect for a small adult,  children or beloved furry companions.

Smartly designed, the washroom features a small sink, a hidden toilet, and a large shower area, all smartly located in the entryway. Why? Because this is the best use of space given you can leave any dirty, wet gear here in a place to be easily cleaned and dried without a mess. The interior storage is plentiful as a large 53” wide hatch lifts up revealing tons of storage space, and a 7.5” deep drawer slides out 30” making it a perfect place to hold your dry goods. There are numerous locking drawers for pots, pans, dishes, and even a kitchen pantry. A built-in trash receptacle in the kitchen countertop stores and hides waste.

The EXP cabin also includes a custom center console and the best long distance driving seats you will ever sit in; custom Scheelmann Vario seats made so you’ll never feel numb after a long trip again.

Above these functional amenities sits 360 degrees of windows at the top of the interior, allowing you to enjoy the outside scenery while being in a comfortable climate-controlled

Designed for comfort in all conditions

EarthCruisers are designed to be comfortable in all four seasons, and anywhere around the world. Every aspect of the house has been designed to be as comfortable as possible, all while optimizing energy use and efficient use of space. Innovative systems for heating, cooling, and controlling condensation exist inside. Hidden within the ceiling exists our innovative fan system, moving air efficiently through the house and vents outside. By quickly popping open the vents you get 200 cfm of airflow, which will almost completely remove the possibility of condensation.

Above, the roofing is engineered to reduce the chance of leak points, and optimizes solar space while minimize damage from low hanging branches on trails.

Best-in-class energy systems to keep you running longer

One of the core competencies that set EarthCruiser apart from others is our understanding of energy systems. Led by a team of accomplished Energy System Engineering graduates, we take staying off-grid to the next level.

You won’t see huge amounts of battery storage and solar generation specs, because you don’t need it. Our electrical systems were designed to sip power, and have numerous backup systems if and when necessary, all tested and approved in all conditions by our engineering team. All EarthCruiser power systems are made for easy upgrading and troubleshooting, with ease of identification and repair by any electrician, thanks to our simple and organized wiring system. All electrical systems are organized in one central location, so there is no need to tear apart your house interior when you are out on the trail to find a lost breaker.

The most efficient and effective hydration system in the world

Our expertise in energy management runs parallel in designing the most efficient water consumption systems. Not only do these trucks carry 80 gallons of fresh water, they can re-supply from any water source and purify to potable water with an onboard filtration system. Hot water cycling systems keep fresh water out of your grey tank while you wait for the hot water to reach the faucet. All water lines and all but one tank sit inside the insulated house, with a fan that moves warm air into these areas when the heater is on in cold climates. Circulate the water between the inside and outside tanks to provide yet another way to prevent freezing lines.
