EarthCruiser EXP Camper

Oregon-based EarthCruiser have converted a familiar delivery truck into a full-featured overland vehicle. The beastly EarthCruiser EXP Camper is built on the chassis of a Mitsubishi Fuso (one of the most popular medium-duty trucks globally), and was outfitted with a four-wheel-drive system, complete with two-speed transfer case, full floating axles and air-powered locking hubs. It also has more than 11 inches of ground clearance, so it can scramble over rocks with ease. Powered by a GM-sourced 6.0-liter smallblock V8 making 297 hp and 361 lb-ft of torque, the mighty camper includes all of the typical amenities that can be found in an average home, including a full kitchen, dining area, bathroom, and several beds. The overlander can also be used off-grid, it comes with air and water heaters fed by a 15-liter diesel tank, while a trio of 160-watt solar panels help provide juice for the lithium-ion battery. The 2020 EarthCruiser EXP can sleep up to 5, and gets a custom cabin with a pop-top roof area, clearing room inside to give you almost seven feet of headroom once you are all set up at camp.

EL SOLITARIO CUSTOM MOTORCYCLES

We have featured many custom motorcycles in the past, but none as crazy as the El Solitario conversions. The co-founders, David Borras and Valeria Libano are two irreverent artists/mechanics doing something no one else does, mixing materials like a spicy curry of metal and leather. The resulting mix of raw finishes and immaculate detailing is strangely compelling. Check out the website for the full list of their builds....
