It’s safe to say that many of our vacation plans will change this summer.Instead of hitting up a crowded beach town, many of us may choose to leave behind the noise and news feeds and zip out into nature, as far away from lockdown life as possible (at least, without stepping onto a plane). Luckily for us, Osprey Custom Cars is selling what may be the ultimate camper rig for doing just that.
The camper is a 2014 custom build, originally made bt Phoenix Pop Up Campers. The base truck is a Mitsubishi Canter FG 4×4, a robust off-road medium-duty truck with all-wheel-drive, heavy-duty axles, and excellent ground clearance. The cabover design reduces the overall length — about 23 feet, a little more than an F-250 — for more flexibility and maneuverability both off-road and in parking lots.
Phoenix outfitted this truck with a ton of off-roading mods. It has an All Terrain Warrior parabolic suspension, permitting up to two feet of articulation, and an All Terrain Warrior single-wheel setup that gets ride of the truck’s original dual rear wheels. It also has an ATB helical gear limited-slip differential.
The camper itself sleeps four, with a queen-size bed platform in a pop-top compartment. The dinette area folds into another full-size bed. Other amenities include a Norcold refrigerator/freezer, a two-burner propane stove, a toilet, a three-stage water filtration system, and both indoor and outdoor showers. Two 280-watt Renogy monocrystalline solar panels provide the power. The previous owner fitted it with 12 USB ports, enough for the entire family to Always Be Charging.
While this camper is a used model, it’s not cheap; Osprey Custom Cars wants $149,500 for it. That said, compared to a carbon fiber monocoque EarthRoamer LTi or the massive two-story Commander 8×8 RV, that price is downright reasonable — if not an out-and-out steal.
