If you like being out on the road, seeing something different every day, a campervan is ideal and can be made a home from home, but who would spend over a million dollars for the privilege?
Not surprisingly, there are a lot of people with spare cash to pay for what they would class as toys, spending more than the average person could ever afford to pay out on their one and only home, so what do you get for your money?
The Earthroamer XV-HD, originally a Ford pickup truck, has been transformed into a million-dollar motorhome with every luxury you could imagine. It is powered by a 6.7-litre diesel engine with a 115-gallon tank, has a 250-gallon water tank and solar panels fitted to the roof. This heavyweight vehicle is designed for extreme off-road conditions and measures 35ft in length, is 13’ 5” high, more than 8’ wide and sits on massive 46” tyres.
The living-quarters are seriously luxurious with a Bose surround-sound system, king-size beds (to sleep six), heated floors, a fully fitted bathroom and shower-room. The kitchen area is fitted with a washing machine and tumble dryer, cooker with induction hob, Bosch microwave, fridge freezer and sink.
The Colorado-based company have been building these luxury expedition vehicles for the past ten years, but this is the most expensive model yet.
Campervans have become more and more popular over the years, allowing you to camp and go without all the fuss of dismantling camping gear. There are many sites around the country and companies that convert vehicles into custom-made campervans such as Welsh Coast Campers. You can contact Welsh Coast Campers for more information.
Campervan enthusiasts are a worldwide phenomenon, creating groups and becoming members of the social network motorhome club. Here they can talk about experiences and places they have camped and help each other out with any problems. They meet up several times a year at rallies and swap knowledge and show off their motorhomes, which are all very individual inside.
We may not all be able to afford a million dollars for a motorhome, but given half a chance, you would probably try one out so you could pretend for a weekend to be a millionaire.
