EarthRoamer XV-JP first Camper to Cross the Rubicon

EarthRoamer XV-JP first Camper to Cross the Rubicon

On September 5th, 2007, an EarthRoamer XV-JP became the first camper to successfully complete the Rubicon Trail. (see photos here) One of the most difficult and definitely the most well known 4x4 trail in the United States, the Rubicon Trail in the California High Sierras is a proving ground like no other. Twenty two miles of extreme terrain including rocky climbs with massive boulders, narrow passages, steep inclines and an occasional mud-hole - crossing the Rubicon is truly a journey past the point of no return, demanding everything a vehicle and driver has to offer. Driven by Scott Brady and spotted by Chris Marzonie, The Jeep Rubicon Unlimited based EarthRoamer XV-JP did not disappoint on its namesake trail. With its aggressive 33" mud terrain tires, ultra low 5.13 gearing, locking differentials and stout skid plates, the EarthRoamer XV-JP camper has gone where no camper has gone before. This is the first time a self-contained, fully enclosed production camper has conquered the Rubicon.

Vehicle testing – which has taken the XV-JP proto-type from its home base in the mountains of Colorado through the jungles of Central America, the deserts of Moab Utah, and now the Rubicon trail – is complete and XV-JP production has begun.
