I'm guessing the 1,5 mil is just a ballpark figure to keep the riffraff and tire-kicking single-digit millionaires away. Guessing you could spec it to a less ridiculous level if you leave out that horrible distressed wood, or to a whole new level of ridiculous if so inclined. For people who spend 30k a month on staff and upkeep on a 175 million yacht they use maybe three times a year, this is not a bad deal.

It's also sort-of unique in the sense that, while it is essentially a commercial truck, it still sort of looks and smells like a pickup, unlike a similarly priced MAN.

I think it’s interesting they actually built it with this price tag. It will be interesting to see how it sells. Given the other options available in the uber expensive price range anyone that researched the capabilities etc I can’t imagine would buy it... but as mentioned the rich might just buy it as a toy.

Does anyone know if Earthroamer has been or especially now [with this $1.5million beast] will be using some profits to repay their 2009 bankruptcy debt [$6.5millon] to those who bailed them out?
I'm specificially curious about the repayment of $5.3million to the SBA so that other small businesses don't lose out on growing their own businesses from the lack of SBA funds.

Perhaps Earthroamer could inform us if theyve stepped up and done the right thing since it appears business is really good again, which is genuinely good to see for the Colorado employees and their families.

PS, the hidden staircase is a nifty idea. Well done on that.

Many (if not most) creditors were made whole and we have excellent business relationships with many of those same vendors today. The SBA was paid in full when we sold the factory and not one penny of taxpayer money was used to bail us out. https://bizwest.com/2010/05/14/bev-buys-plant-in-lafayette/ I couldn't undo all of the harm that the bankruptcy caused to everyone, but I did my best to make as many people as possible whole, and move through the process with honesty and integrity. It wasn't easy.

Today we are designing and building world class expedition vehicles. We are creating jobs, buying goods and services from many other companies, and enabling EarthRoamer owners to live their dreams in an American made product produced by talented and skilled Colorado craftsman. For that I make no apologies.

If you have any additional questions, call me or send me an email and I'll do my best to provide you with accurate answers.

Sincerely,

And yet another Expo thread off the rails.

Does anyone ever even look at thread titles here?

The thread is supposed to be pics of a very expensive Expedition vehicle. The fact that most of us cant afford it is not really relevant, many folks including me like seeing what’s out there.

Bill- nicely worded response, I would have told him/ her to get bent.

True class Bill, huge kudos.
Thanks for doing what you (and Earthroamer) do!
