Our GXV Patagonia has dual pane glass windows and it is in the under 1/2 mil category and available on lower priced models except for maybe the new Adventure Truck that has a molded body.I was curious about the awning too. Kimberley Kruiser makes some good stuff and have been around for a while. I toured a unit when I visited Australia. As for the cheap acrylic windows, it seems just about everyone operating in the under 1/2 mil category uses them.
It does seem like they did quite a bit of work on the cab fortunately. They say they can talk at a normal voice level going down the highway which sounds very promising.I think the only thing it doesn’t suit per your requirements is #7. And your budget......
Sure will.if you go, send me a note, we can connect if you like
Right now the A0 models of the Stewart & Stevenson M1079 military 2.5T, with the Command Center boxes are selling reasonably at auctions.I'm looking for a self sustaining rig to explore North America. Fitting in shipping containers isn't a concern for me, but I'd like to keep the vehicle 25 feet or less in length. The budget would be $250,000. I am not at all opposed to a good quality used unit.
1. Really good off-road 4x4, rear and front locking differentials, winch, decent approach/departure/breakover angles, 3 point camper mount etc.
2. Have or be able to be modded for large solar+lithium battery bank. Electricity the main power source.
3. Bellow/portal access from cab to camper.
4. Large freshwater/grey tanks, cassette or composting toilet, large diesel fuel tank(s).
5. Must be 0F to 110F capable. Double pane windows, interior or heated tanks and lines. Air conditioning and heater systems that are commensurate with these temps.
6. Parts have to still be available.
7. A vehicle cab that you don't have to put ear plugs in at 65 MPH and doesn't beat you to death.
8. If foreign, must be left hand drive and registerable in the US.
I've been checking Unicat and Expedition truck brokers but haven't found anything that meets my needs yet. What route would you take for $250K?
We ordered a Global Expedition Vehicle Turtle. Ours should be ready in September. You may be able to get a new stripped down one for $250,000. I know you can get their Adventure Truck fully loaded for $250,000.GXV never replies to emails, they must be swamped with orders! Anyone have experience with them?
