If you want to travel the world but don’t want to catch endless amounts of flights, we may have stumbled upon the perfect tool for the job; the GEV Patagonia.
Built by a company called Global Expedition Vehicles, the Patagonia is a luxurious motorhome with rugged off-roading abilities based on a Kenworth K370 lorry chassis. The price of admission of this continent-crossing vehicle that can cope with anything while ensuring that its occupants remain comfortable at all times is a rather steep $465,000, though.
Those looking to buy a Patagonia have a virtually-endless array of options and vehicle configurations to choose from. For starters, the off-road motorhome doesn’t actually have to be based on a Kenworth truck and can use the underpinnings of various Freightliner, MAN, and Mercedes models. The Patagonia can even be based on a Unimog. Depending on the chassis, the Patagonia can be anywhere between 17-feet (5.3-meters) and 29-feet (8.8-meters) long.
The body of the Patagonia is built from insulated fiberglass-reinforced panels and the example pictured comes complete with a spacious kitchen, a bathroom, and a queen-size bed. What’s more, the Patagonia includes a dining table that can be converted into another sleeping area. Customers can option out the interior as they like, and that includes having a spacious trunk that can fit an ATV.
Making the GEV Patagonia all the more capable are off-road wheels and tires, a small front overhang, a large bull bar and a cage on the roof. Clearly, the Patagonia isn’t a vehicle designed for cruising between dedicated camping grounds. It is insyead meant to venture off into the beaten path, allowing owners to camp under the stars in awe-inspiring locations.
Crossing the length of South America, for example, in this beast? Sounds like an absolute ball. Shame it’s a little out of our price range…
