Here's a seriously rare vehicle - a 1993 Airstream B190 based on a Ford E350 platform, with a 4WD conversion kit from Advanced Adapters. The options on this vehicle are almost endless and it appears to be mechanically well maintained. The seller says that all it needs to hit the trail are a new set of tires and a new owner. For a buy-it-now price of only $24,000, this could be a Sportsmobile on a budget - with a touch of vintage Airstream design.

EarthRoamer releases XV-HD
Every time I see an EarthRoamer - I can't help but feel as if my vehicle is a member of the proletariat. Why? Because they're completely over the top in the best way possible. Of course I want a customizable living room, and dining room - inside my expedition vehicle. Sorry Ralph, you're great and all, but I think I'd rather travel around the world in a land yacht. The problem? EarthRoamers have always been a bit small, yes, that's the word I'm looking for, small. Luckily, they've just announced the EarthRoamer XV-HD, which makes the huge existing XV-LT look like a toy.

La Aduana: 1975 Volvo Tgb 111 Camper Conversion
via West County Explorers Club: This rare 1975 Volvo Tgb 111 started life in the Swedish military but was later converted into an extraodinarily capable off-road camper with the addition of a Maggiolina rooftop tent, custom cabinets, and a heat exchanger for hot water. Only about 8000 of these trucks were produced worldwide, and none of them were ever imported to the U.S. or produced as campers, as far as I know, making this quite an uncommon find.
This ultimate overlander is being offered for $40,000 in Santa Cruz, CA. The seller estimates that it’s covered about 80,000 miles. Click here to email him directly.
The Fuso Earthcruiser
After having pitched our tent for the fourth night in a row on a recent trip through the eastern Sierras, the conversation turned to self contained 4-wheel-drive camping vehicles. The VW Westfalia Syncro (which happens to be covered the current issue of Overland Journal) came up. Only about 1500 of these rare, 4x4 campers were sent to the US between 1986 and 1991 and prices have risen into the $40k–$50k range for clean examples and into the $80k range for restored ones. Back at home I wondered if anyone still produces a small 4x4 camper that could be considered a spiritual successor to the old Syncro Westy.
