Made popular by Australian icon and adventurer Dick Smith is the much sought after USA mad Earthroamer camper.

These solid 4x4 vehicles are the ultimate in camper and expedition use you will find without losing all your luxuries.

Ford F550 earthroamer press release.

Dick smith back from his F550 adventureSYDNEY—For someone who hates driving, a four-wheel drive truck was a strange mode of transport to choose for a 40,000km trip across 15 countries.

But entrepreneur and adventurer Dick Smith, who had seen the world five times over from the air, wanted to see it a fair bit closer on his latest trip.

Mr Smith and his wife Pip returned home today to a welcoming crowd at the Sydney Opera House after completing the journey in segments over two-and-a-half years.

"We are spending our children's inheritance, with fuel costs as they are now ... there will be nothing left," he joked.

The couple travelled in a distinctive Earthroamer truck complete with a bed, bathroom and cooking facilities.
 

 

Well Dick spend the kids inheritance, good on you but maybe, just maybe Dick import these devils or even better bring out the Ford F550 and lets make our own.
