energy that is controlled by a battery management
system that will run the operations independently. Wide ranging tests were

battery more than 75% even in the heat of the Queensland summer. This also has big side
windows covered by screens for proper ventilation, an

chassis, fitting just about any make in the correct weight class. And provides a system that
is comfortable and capable. Higher ground clearance
helps protect components and permits you to take this vehicle to the most isolated locations. The key difference for
the EXD is the structural integrity, intelligent

other manufacturers. Four drive actuators

  2. 10 looks great
    8 looks great to, super.
    5 is WoW!!! Of grid great for a small family.
    My favourite for family and off grid great and compact living in towns, cities or in the wild, would be no. 8.
    And Cassie* also deserve a like ??✔?

  3. Great video as always also can I recommend you make a backpacking tent video as most of your videos have tents that are either huge or not cumbersome enough to be put on a backpack also maybe best camping stoves also do you have a Amazon affiliate link?

  4. Love the sink/stove combo of #6 … #5 is really independent … #4 interchangeable totes … Set up for camping, hunting or fishing … #1 would work in swamps too …

  5. I would love to own #5 to use as my new home. And #1 to use as my new home on and near the river. ….. ALL I NEED NOW IS THE MONEY!

  6. the overland needs alil more pop up capability like if they were to have a baby with zodiac bombardier and Coleman inflatable mattresses I actually conceptualize a design knowing this style of thinking might create cheap and easily repairable camper ?

  7. I noticed a lot of entrepreneur using vehicles like these but most of these vehicles are camp leisure life seems there are a lot of surplus government vehicle given renew life through our youthful entrepreneur? spirit

  8. Is it too soon for me to put these on my Christmas list for 2019? (If I’m going to be picky, I have to admit I need an indoor shower!)

  9. Some are just to ugly for normal RV use. Try parking they at a supermarket while you do a long weekend food shop. How would you drive No1 from your home to the wilderness – on the Freeway, Motorway?? Try driving a vehicle like that for 5hours @ 40mph {off-road tyres limit speed}

  10. That 6×6 Australian Camper gave me an idea…wouldn't it be nice if we had hybrid-powered campers, with drivetrain battery that can be recharged by solar panels, so we could save the combustion fuel for night mobiling. That'd give us more exploring range, don't you think?

  11. Watching Dakar Rally this time of year. Any of those big trucks would be fine with me.
    I promise I won't run over any spectators.

  12. I like all of it you are doing a good job and a great job I love KC on the in she is good looking and very pretty but mostly I like the campers you are so so much different banks thank you very much keep up the good work love you all bye-bye

  13. I love all of the European versions of Expedition Vehicles. But the Russian one OH Yeah!. Thanks for Sharing Minds Eye Design. Love the content.

  14. Pop tops are just glorified tents on wheels. There is about the same security, anyone could cut through the fabric, (you know crims and psychos, especially in the aussie outback and remote places… thinking Ivan Milat, & what they based that Wolf Creek movie on… shiverrrs)

    Give me the mercedes van (or mini bus?) one any day, I would take it no worries!
