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.

Shortbus no more!?

Originally Posted by shortbusadventure  I saw this rig, pretty much complete in September. I just happened upon it in Truckee, California. We were on our way back from BurningMan Festival. They had apparently been there as well. Got a quick tour, Amazing. Hope to see it again. Thanks for chiming in. I remember our Truckee conversation […]

Long Overdue… again!

Nothing like a bit of peer pressure to kick a chronic procrastinator into action! SORRY GUYS! I have been very delinquent in my ExPo duties over the past few months. I know that there are a lot of you out there that have invested a lot of time into following our build, and want to […]

Approaching the ‘finish’ line

We made a lot of great progress over the past week. While most of Elkhart county are working “4-10’s” these days, Jeff & the guys have been working almost “7-12’s” for the past 3+ weeks. The good news is that the end is almost in sight… We got the entire camper insulated now. Most of […]


The Pop-top is done and it’s AWESOME!!! It adds a whole other ‘ROOM’ to the truck. I’m so happy with how it has turned out. It took a LOT of bizarre engineering and aluminum, but it all works… I’ve posted up lots of new pictures of the shutter door in it’s various positions in the […]

Here’s the other 7 solar panels on the main roof: 1.5kW overall. (theoretical) They are going to get some rub rails to keep branches from ripping them off or damaging them. Time will tell how well that works…

Moving Inside

This week marks a fairly epic milestone in the development of the truck. We’ve started installing the interior! The major work over the past two weeks has been the pop-top and the electrical. (both of those now link to the newly organized photo galleries) The pop-top was a bit of a scary affair. Any day that you wake […]

Back online…

It has been a very challenging past couple of months. We’ve had some personal medical issues at home and production issues in Sturgis, both of […]


Greetings from sunny Oklahoma! The trip is going well so far. Last night I spent my first true night ‘camping’ with the truck. I used the new outside countertop with the BBQ on it, and it worked like a charm! Here it is: (in various stages of progress) STEP 1: Cut a big hole in […]

On my Way!

Hi guys, My apologies that it has been a while since the last update. A LOT has happened, and it has been a crazy past few weeks trying to get the truck ready for the big trip to Arizona for the Overland Expo. If any of you are planning on going to the OvExpo, be […]
