WranglerEarthRoamer XV-JP: Interior Pics
Posted by mike on 2007/4/12 19:40:37 (2241) reads

We're usually not so infatuated with after-market modifications to stock Jeeps, but for some reason, we really dig EarthRoamer's XV-JP - a 2007 Wrangler that's also a camper. The guys at EarthRoamer just released a bunch of new photos, including this one:



Check out all 22 photos.

--sigh--

It's clear from the images that this is a permanent change...

Oh well.

It'd be interesting for a bed-only shell to be available. And the handle-less half doors and tall rear door...

I could do some interesting layout conversions with an extended two-door shell (Unlimited length) and shaved doors for the side designed to provide a side for an extended cargo area.

Hmmm....

I like it, but the last price quote I saw for this was $100K. That's obviously pretty steep. So, unless you've got National Geographic footin' the bill, it's out of the question for most.

I wonder how close someone could get to this using camper/RV parts from a JC Whitney & Cabelas catalog?

Let's see, you could get a toidy, a microwave, a fridge and a sink/portable shower, and even a portable generator, all for a couple K. There's several pop-out-the-back Jeep tents available (even 1 from Jeep.com, I think). Now, rearrange the seating in the back and do some rudimentary fiberglass/metal work (or simply chop & modify a new camper top for a pickup) and voila!

I'm thinking an extra $10-15K on top of a loaded $35K Rubicon JKL (that's HALF of that $100K) and a few weekends, and you'd have most of this licked. Jp Magazine... Oh, Cappaman! Are you listening?

Wow, from the outside it doesn't really look like there would be that much interior living space - these guys are good.
I think the the rear bench seats are a bit high (obviously better for storage) and with the low-back seats I imagine it would be a rough ride down the Rubicon. I do beleive it would get 4 people there and support them well overnight.
I'm especially impressed that they retained the roll-cage. That must have taken a fair bit of time & effort.

The XV-JP is intended for 2-person expedition. The sleeping quarters are really only suitable for 2 adults, and maybe a small child or pet.

With the canopy stowed, I doubt you could even sit upright in those rear seats, or at least not very well. Also note the apparent lack of seat belts on those rear seats (they're no intended for passengers whilst traveling).
