EarthCruiser Motorhomes sit at the premium end of the 4WD Motorhome market. These vehicles can take their occupants far from the beaten track for sometimes months at a time.
According to EarthCruiser, who are obviously proud of their product, when you match the best off road vehicle in the world with the best all-terrain motorhome you create a go-anywhere luxurious and reliable product.
The 4WD Motorhome we are talking about is in the form of the Mercedes-Benz Unimog and the EarthCruiser ultimate expedition vehicle.
For 2018, EarthCruiser has released its most advanced expedition model based on the Mercedes-Benz Unimog U430.
With 300hp of German engineering to carry the EarthCruiser Explorer XPR440, the combination of these two leading manufacturers is stunning.
This combination has produced a level of exploration superiority that can literally take a family to experience the tour of a lifetime, and bring them back safely to civilisation.
Proven in use by Defence Forces throughout the world, the Mercedes-Benz Unimog features Variopilot.
This unique process allows a change between left and right hand drive, moving the steering wheel and pedals in under 30 seconds.
The result is that you have ultimate safety, vision and control no matter where your journey takes you.
Shipping your Unimog EarthCruiser between countries is also easy with the use of container rims.
With a fuel range of up to 3500 km, the Unimog EarthCruiser is available with manual or automated manual transmissions.
When negotiating severe off road tracks the approach, departure and ramp over angles give Explorer XPR400 amazing access, which can be improved yet further at the request of the buyer.
The EarthCruiser Explorer is available in two versions, the XPR440 with its overall length of 4.4m and the XPR380, which at an overall length of 3.8m provides sufficient space to rear mount a motor cycle.
The EarthCruiser Explorer is a purpose built 4×4 all-terrain Expedition Motorhome, with chassis-mounted tank capacity for 860 litres of water and 800 litres of fuel.
Dependent on the intended severity of the terrain, weatherproof options are available to cater for extreme cold (-40degreesC) in Arctic conditions as well as extreme heat.
