Thanks for the heads up.
The Siberian looks like a nice rig.
See information and pricing on Siberian Tiger on the diesel powered Ford F450 chassis here:
Base price is $175K, price of all listed options is another $27K.
Oh my my - saw some of the sneak preview shots but wasn't really expecting this! That thing is HUGE.
Specs & pricing for gas Siberian - base price $163K
Specs & pricing for diesel Siberian - base price $175K
Both based on the F450, it's a whole new game. Wondering if Tigers should now be in the ER section?
Interesting though that the basic layout is similar to the humble astrovan versions.
It'll be at OVX in May.

There was one of the Tigers at the Tacoma RV show last weekend...Too bad it wasn't opened up, it looked far more interesting than 99% of the RV's there...Most of those drag-along RV's are just crap...
hmm Paul with a Siberian Tiger.... Imagine the possibilities and veneers......................
Now he just needs a benefactor.... The build thread would be record setting...
Lake Buena Vista, FL
Next into the workshop is either a Sprinter or a Lexus SUV...Owner's choice...
They're almost complementary; F450 to F550, load range and clearance coming with the different models.
You've got to like aluminium though and I don't (not that my opinion has anything to do with it, I'm not a potential customer of either).
I also think that that those who can afford either are not quite as concerned as I am about materials, the important thing for them is that it works, out of the box.
And that I'm sure it does.
Mine is probably bigger than yours.
(isn't that what those long signatures are about?)
I'm talking about my truck, what were you thinking? ;-)
It does look really well done, and even with all the options you still come in at $30K less than an Earthroamer, so they have that going for them. One thing I noticed that seems odd, it notes that picking the Lariat trim package eliminates one of the fuel tanks. Any ideas why a trim package would result in the loss of 28 gallons of fuel capacity? I know it wieghs more since it adds power seats and some other goodies, but there should be plenty of capacity in the GVWR to accomodate both. Just curious.
To reduce duplicates and make information easier to find, I combined three threads on the new Siberian Tiger into this one.
