Travel with our family

Join us as we explore the world in our carbon-neutral, 4x4 expedition vehicle called The EcoRoamer. We are happy to share our travel adventures, family memories and homeschooling experiences as we journey down the road less traveled.


Some good progress this week. I’ll let the pictures do the talking:

The ramp door showed up, and is now mounted:

This is what it will look like in the ‘down’ position. We still need to beef it up with the internal frame, add railings and the springs to help lift it up…

Someone asked in a previous post about lowering it all the way down to help with loading things into the camper. Here it is: (pretty steep!)

Remember that the rear wall (the one with the window & door) is just bolted in, and will be coming out so we can put all the furniture & floor boards in. We’ll replace the wall and tack it down before we head to Arizona…

Also, for those following the long wheels saga, we finally have the (semi-)final chapter.

Here are the used 22.5″ Alcoas, now powder coated black, and with the Michelin XDE M/S 11R22.5’s on them:

We’ve decided to donate our set of five BRAND NEW Continental MPT81’s (365/80R20’s) to the silent auction for Disabled Explorers. — So, if you’ve been following this thread and have an EarthRoamer, (uses these same ones) or some other project that you think the Conti’s might be a good fit for – come out to the Overland Expo in Arizona and place your bids! 100% of the funds raised will go to the charity. (Note: Wheels & Shipping not included)

I don’t want to overload everyone with the gory details of our running boards, cargo bay doors, etc, so if you’re interested in more of the pics, check out the photo section at: www.EcoRoamer.com

Just 1 month to go now…
