    I looked up at a traffic light and there it was - it is a way cool RV. It looked brand new and was spotless, so maybe it was a rich guy's toy....

    Anyway, if I had to buy a self contained RV it would be this:

    Maybe I'll catch a glimse in Seattle?

    I'd take one if they put a Cummins in it. Im no fan of that Power Stroke.

    I wonder if they'd make one off of a Dodge platform?

    Wonder if thats a sort of evolution of the Ford's Turtle Expedition rigs ? Been yrs since I saw those, but it reminds me a little of it.

    Earthroamer is really a sweet vehicle -

    I have been following their site for years...

    Mega-expensive....but really nice / and not made outa s*** like most RV's

    I am patterning my Aliner on many of their designs -

    http://www.earthroamer.com/main_truck/truck_er2kforsale.html - the concept is for sale! Cheap - only........

    Oh, and it is a Cummins -

    No thanks. I'd pick up a Sweet Unimog for that kind of bling.

    Since the Earthroamer lacked a standalone generator, wouldn't the power system on a Chevy Silverado Hybrid be more useful? When the house/auxiliary batteries run low, the engine on the Chevy hybrid starts automatically to recharge the batteries with its 2400watt generator.
