Up for sale is my beloved Earth Roamer (ER). This rig is something to behold and is so special to me and my family we gave her the name of Silvia. This is my second Earth Roamer (ER), my first one went by the name of Penny. If you can’t tell, I love Earth Roamers. They are Bar none the best expedition RV the world over.
We primarily use Silvia for Desert racing in Baja and the South West as well as Snowmobiling in the North West. We participate heavily in Desert Racing, with 2 and 4 wheels vehicles. ER is a natural and extraordinary fit for anyone who loves motorsports, hunting, biking, fishing, back country, skiing, snowmobiling and of course Expedition camping.
In searching for an RV years ago I went through 3 different RVs before I finally purchased our first ER. We had a steep set of criteria and at the time it seemed no RV was able to check all the boxes, that is until I came across the Earth Roamer. We race and sled enough that I called Silvia home for 1/3rd of 2016! For our family we needed a truck cab that can seat 4 people, with baby seats, 4 wheel drive, ability to Tow over 12,000 lbs, large fuel capacity, ability to wet camp in extremely cold temperatures, something that can handle death valley type heat, modest off road capability, we really didn’t want propane or a generator as well, and finally a rig that can go full speed on the freeways. There are a lot of expedition RVs that are more capable offroad than the Ford Chassis, such as a Unimog. The problem is that the max speed of a Unimog is 60 MPH, and they don’t have a crew cab, nor can they be serviced by any mechanic like a Ford chassis, and they also cost a quarter million dollars all by themselves.
You know when you are driving a 19,000 lb rig, towing a 32 ft 12,000 lb snowmobile Trailer (with 5 sleds and equipment inside), 4 full grown men, 130 gallons of water, 90 gallons of diesel, going up an 7-8% grade pass, at 60 MPH, in a blizzard, in sub zero temps, with lights that will cut through the thickest of fog, all in comfort… you know you have something special. Or when you do finally get to the trail head in the middle of the night and it’s a staggering -28 Degrees below Zero, and you don’t have a care in the world because you are nice and cozy in your Earth Roamer, all while the diesel furnace and diesel water heater are hard at work making sure nothing gets to cold and nothing freezes, including your diesel itself. I have been there and done that, and its amazing to know that you have a capable machine at your disposal.

A word has to be said about the craftsmanship that goes into an ER. The best thing I can liken an Earth Roamer to is a yacht. I like to call them Land yachts. Yachts have to be built to the highest level of quality if they are to brave the elements and the rough waters the oceans of the world throw at them. Yachts have higher grade windows, paneling, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, cabinetry, plumbing, construction, mounting, engineering, etc. This is all true for an ER. If you have never been in one you need to in order to appreciate an ER. The cabinetry work is unlike any RV I have ever owned and I have owned some pretty nice RVs over the years, even brands that are considered the best, and they are still second rate when compared to the level of quality in my ER. A ER must be completely high quality. To take any RV off road and into unkind elements it had better be put together well or it will fall apart in no time flat.
The first Earth Roamer I ever owned was built in 2006. I ended up selling it with approx. 120,000 miles and it was in as good of condition as it was the day it rolled off the factory floor. It’s a testament to the level of work Earth Roamer does, and once you touch and feel one you will start to see why they cost what they do. They will also retain their value.
Extra work that has been done to this Earth Roamer
· I replaced the stock Ford Turbo with an after-Market turbo and computer. The turbo is an industrial injection silver bullet turbo. Its no secret that the Ford engine is a great engine but the turbo is the weak link. I replaced once the manufactures warranty ran out so I and my family would never be stranded anywhere. The silver bullet turbo is 10 times more reliable, more efficient and far more powerful.
· When the stock Continental tires wore out I decided to try the same sized Good Years. They look better, in my opinion, and they ride better. They actually cost more than the Continentals. The Continentals are better for going off road, and the Good Years are better on road, but can also handle rough terrain if needed.
· The hi-jack is on the front bumper. It looks nice and is incredibly useful. It can in no way lift the ER itself, but if you ever get a flat on a trailer or stop to help someone else its incredibly useful.
· The bullet proof drop hitch is amazing. I will send it with the ER because I wont need it once I sell it. It can handle 20,000 lbs. Most drop hitches are only rated at 10,000 lbs, and since the ER can tow more than that I needed a solution.
· Rear Platform. I had a rear platform built for this Silvia. Its nice, and can fit 2 dirt bikes on it with no problem. You can use it for whatever. It is very very heavy though and cannot be installed with one person unless you’re a strong man.
· The spare tire is missing because some horrible person put a drill bit through the sidewall of the tire. I get more compliments on this rig than anything I have ever owned, and I have never had anyone attempt to vandalize it in all the years I have owned it. Really odd and the tire and rim will be in place when you buy it.
I make no warranties. This ER is an amazing rig but does have limitations. All statements above are estimates and anyone who is interested should verify all statements for themselves such as capacities of the vehicle. This RV is sold as is where is. I will accommodate how I can but once you buy it, it will be yours.
Once you win the auction a deposit of 20% of the purchase price will be due within 48 hours and from there we will work out the remaining details. I own a car dealership and since this is a large purchase it might make you feel more comfortable for the dealership to handle everything, but its not necessary. I only bring this up because the dealership is licensed and insured with the State of Utah and you can verify who I am very easily through the dealership to makes sure you are buying a real product.
