Earth Roamer XT

There's minimum impact camping, and then there's the Earth Roamer XT, built right here in Colorado. It reminds me of the American way of war. I guess for guys who don't want to have one of those cheaply-built big box Fred-and-Ethel RVs stacked up next to each other in the campground. You can really go out and defeat some wilderness in this beast. Until you run out of gas, anyway. Maybe there's a way to call down airstrikes from inside the thing. Looks well-built anyway; most RVs seem like junk.
