Does the Earthcruiser Qualify?

—as a Molded Fiberglass RV, that is?

EarthCruiser

The box is made of fiberglass, "like a yacht" we are told.

These hefty trucks are designed for luxurious go-anywhere camping. They should also qualify as the most expensive MFG RV: the pop-top model (EXP) starts at $225k, and the fixed-roof model (FX) at $175k. A little out of our league, unless we sell our house. They're Australian, but have now expanded to the USA.

They're also making a pop-top slide-in pickup camper (GZL).

Here's an article on the Earthcruiser:

There's all manner of rigs that are considered molded fiberglass, this is one. But, it doesn't fit the focus of this website.... FiberglassRV. We're all about molded fiberglass travel trailers.

Point taken, though the Home Page header says,

"Molded Lightweight Fiberglass RV"

Then, I guess the Earthcruiser would scarcely qualify as 'Lightweight'.

Not thinking it is "light" enough to qualify. I saw the picture, and while very interesting, I first thought "take cover!" Just me🤔

Does it qualify as a lightweight fiberglass travel trailer?

Good NIGHT! My feeling is, HARDLY!
But what do I know?

That's a monster rig! Woo hoo!

Part of the reason the title of this forum is Molded Lightweight Fiberglass RV... is Molded Lightweight Fiberglass RV Travel Trailers would be too big a mouth full

For understanding, read the paragraph on the front page below the picture: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/index.html
