Monster EarthRoamer Announced

ER just released a new look on their site and announced the XV-HD, built on an F-650. It looks like a terrestrial aircraft carrier:

Here's the Stretched XV-LTS in front of the XV-HD:

The Jeep Rubicon based XV-JP is completely missing from the lineup, not mentioned anywhere on the site that I can find. It is the only factory built motorhome I know of that was more off road capable than a tricked out SMB. Supposedly they have for some time also been working on a new unit built on a 3/4 ton pickup, perhaps they are going to replace the Jeep with that. Swails has referred to this vehicle on ExPo, but there is no mention of it on their site.

Re: Monster EarthRoamer Announced

Do they even make winches big enough to pull one of those things out of the muck?

Hydraulic? Whatever they use on cranes perhaps.

Looks too big to me.

They call it a windlass on something that big. All kidding aside, looks awesome, I cannot imagine the price tag. Is it listed anywhere?

As for the JK, there's now this: http://www.actioncamper.info/details.php?ktid=4&artID=7

Big bucks, but cool. Huuuuge aftermarket for the JK.
