The XV-HD is the latest product from Earthroamer, a company whose name sounds like a certain British luxury SUV maker's beefed-up brother. The company has been building vehicles since 1998, with more than 200 Ford F-550 XV-LTS behemoths terrorizing your local RV park. The XV-HD steps things up, using a four-wheel-drive F-750 as the base platform. Power comes from Ford's tried and true 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel V8. Earthroamer doesn't mention which version it uses, but for 2017 the engine makes 440 horsepower and 925 pound-feet of torque.
Beyond that, nearly everything has been touched and upgraded. The XV-HD wears 46-inch Michelin XZL tires, packs rear air suspension with Fox shocks, hydraulic leveling, 30,000-pound front-mounted hydraulic Warn winch and a full LED light array from Baja Designs. The XV-HD is intended to survive independently for a while, so it also has 2,100 watts of solar capability, a 20,000-watt lithium-ion battery bank, a PTO-driven hydraulic generator, a 250-gallon water tank and a 115-gallon fuel tank.
Still, this isn't just about being rugged. Look inside and you'll find plenty of wood, leather and stainless steel. The XV-HD comes with a full kitchen, a full bathroom with a separate shower, a washer and dryer, heated floors and a Bose surround sound system. The photos don't show the sleeping cabin, but we imagine it's much more of the same.
Now, this isn't cheap. Not by a long shot. The Colorado-built machines cost a cool $1.5 million each and require a $375,000 deposit to reserve a spot. If you put an order in now, you should get it in time to take a long vacation after the 2018 midterm elections.
