HOUSE

Body Unit: Using knowledge from the yachting industry, the engineered designed floor, walls and roof are of a fiberglass composite construction. This light-weight sandwich structure can be subjected to both static and dynamic loads. The result is that EarthCruiser is strong, light weight and has high insulative properties.

Pop-top containerisable off the grid EarthCruiser

This is the model that started EarthCruiser. Inside, the 7.5 square meter interior of the EarthCruiser is well appointed and functional. The light-weight purposely designed home grows 600mm upwards at the push of a button when setting up camp. This allows a large walk-around area within the camper body in stationary mode, and in its lowered position a more aerodynamic shape for the highway and a compact shape for off-road travel.

EarthCruiser is the original all-terrain expedition vehicle, created from extensive experience in some of the world’s toughest conditions.

EarthCruiser is the ultimate 4x4 camper with proven reliability:

‘Pop-Top’ Camper Roof : EarthCruiser EXP is unique, in that a full sized expedition motorhome can be containerised.
The vinyl wall has three layers, white on the outside and inside to reflect the heat, a black internal membrane for reduced temperature/light transfer. For cooling, the vinyl interface has eight zipper/ roll down ventilation fly screened windows. At head height this gives a 360 degree panoramic view.
The roof module is raised by four 12Volt electric roof lifter 480 Nm each (w manual over ride) . These actuators also hold the roof down giving a good dust and water seal. EarthCruiser has no problem with heavy snow loads. It takes only 48 seconds to raise the roof and camp is set.
Water: EarthCruisers are equipped with up to 300Lt fresh water. The 12V pumping system will allow you to draw water from individual tanks, allowing the use of tank 1 for cooking etc and tank 2 for showering. The plumbing flexibility will also enable to pump from a creek into tank 1 or 2 and pump from one tank to the other giving maximum control over usage of available water.
The purified (optional) drinking water will be delivered from any tank via the onboard water purifier through a stainless steel faucet. Insulated and warmed water tanks are standard.
Electric system: EarthCruiser is able to be parked at your favorite isolated spot for up to 10 days without the use of additional power. The roof is recessed to allow the 125 watt shatter proof solar panels (a second or third panel is an option) to be completely flat. One 270Ah deep cycle ( a 2nd or 3rd is an option) battery will run the 12 volt off road fridge/freezer and LED lighting system for this considerable time. An 1800 watt Inverter with charger (230v) provides true sinus power for your computer and other AC powered items.
Cooking / Air and Water Heating: Internally is the very smart Diesel fueled Webasto Cooktop drawing fuel directly from the vehicle’s fuel tank. Heater and the domestic hot water supply is via a Diesel Webasto DualTop.
Suspension: EarthCruiser Soft Ride/long travel suspension. Factory suspension is replaced in favour of EarthCruiser designed tested and proven leaf springs and heavy duty gas shock absorbers with reservoir and greaseable pins.(optional).

The above combination gives EarthCruiser its famous soft ride over hard terrain and supreme wheel articulation over rugged ground.
