Yes our modern society bombards us with information. Our phones are no longer stupid and they send us information constantly based on our browsing activities and where our phone is used (ain’t that GPS great!).
My phone knows that I travel a lot and use a truck camper as I roam. Today one of the ‘hey read this’ suggestions was Escaping the everyday: 2016’s best motorhomes and adventure vehicle hardware (to be honest I usually skip these as most are ‘click bait’). The words that caught my eye were ‘escape’ and ‘adventure vehicle’ … OK I’m a sucker. The post by New Atlas (their website reminds me of a more consumer focused WIRED) had one vehicle that caught my eye –
NOW THIS I’M LIKING! The above, to me, IS a modern update of a Roamin’ Chariot!
New Atlas states in their review, ‘…without the massive size or exorbitant price tag.’ Well in my world a small slide in truck camper that starts at $36,000 gets very close to being exorbitant. In 1998 I paid $3,500 for the Roamin’ Chariot (RC), being equal to about $5,100 today. Yes, the RC was very simple with just a bed, light, cabinet and awning. BUT the EarthCruiser GZL is REALLY cool!
There are also a video series on YouTube that details the camper features and options –
EarthCruiser is Australian but has a branch in Bend, Oregon.
