EarthCruiser, the unique go anywhere Australian all-wheel-drive motorhome will make its Victorian debut at the National 4×4 Outdoors Show and Fishing and Boating Expo at the Melbourne Showgrounds from 2 – 4 September 2011.
Designed and built in Queensland, the EarthCruiser is designed to travel the world while providing a totally independent lifestyle. The EarthCruiser design is a complete module with a powered elevating roof that contains sleeping and accommodation for two or four travellers with heating, cooking and water heating systems powered by diesel fuel and electricity generation by solar panels.
The EarthCruiser is mounted on a Mitsubishi Fuso all-wheel-drive Canter and is perfectly sized for transportation anywhere in the world in a standard shipping container.
Lance Gillies of EarthCruiser says the company is already exporting to the United States, Spain, Egypt and the UK.
“Many of our customers are travelling to Australia to collect their EarthCruiser personally and then enjoy a trip around our country before shipping it overseas for further adventures. It’s a totally unique concept and offers total independence and an unmatched off road ability. By teaming the EarthCruiser with a Mitsubishi Fuso Canter it is supported globally for total peace of mind,” he added.
With its specially designed soft ride/hard road suspension kit and super-single 36 inch Michelin XZL tyres, the EarthCruiser is capable of negotiating long distance desert crossings and endless kilometres of corrugated and rough outback roads in comfort. At the end of the travelling day EarthCruiser can provide a hot shower, a cold drink from the fridge, and a comfortable bed for the night.
