EarthRoamer is no stranger to the camper conversion game. The Colorado-based company has been doing it since 1998. But arguably EarthRoamer’s most extreme camper conversion to date is the $1.5-million XV-HD. The Ford F-750-based camper is essentially a luxury apartment on wheels. It can carry up to 250 gallons of fresh water, offers a 20-kilowatt-hour battery tank, and stretches out to 35-feet long.

Jeep Wrangler Outpost II Concept
Montana-based American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) specializes in car- and truck-based campers. The shop's latest creation, the Jeep Wrangler-based Outpost II concept, is arguably one of its most-enticing options to date.
The Jeep rides on an extended rear frame and a revised suspension that sits 4.5 inches higher than the factory model. It houses a rear compartment that features two kitchen areas, a 13-gallon freezer fridge, and a steel stove. AEV doesn't list the vehicle for sale currently, but it could join its rugged lineup soon enough.

Mercedes Unimog Explorer XPR440
The Mercedes-Benz Unimog can do anything. We've seen the rugged SUV suit up for fire duty and tree clearing service. But one of the best transformations of any Unimog to date is this fully decked-out camper model. Built by EarthCruiser Australia, the Explorer XPR440 has a bed, a fridge, a stove, a functioning restroom with a small shower, and even a washing machine. The custom creation doesn't have a price, unfortunately.

Mini Camper Concepts
In 2013, Mini released a trio of adorable camper concepts. The Cooper hardtop, the Countryman, and the Clubvan were each given rugged treatments. Add-ons like rooftop tents, personal stoves and fridges, and even accessories like lawn chairs and umbrellas teased what could theoretically become of each of these three Minis. Unfortunately, none of them made their way to production; Countryman owners will have to settle for aftermarket roof tents instead.

Nissan Titan XD Basecamp Concept
The Nissan Titan XD Basecamp concept was built for backcountry explorers. It uses a Titan Pro-4X as its base and adds a three-inch lift, 17-inch KMC Beadlock wheels, and 35-inch Nitto tires. On the roof, there's a fold-out tent with added storage, a portable fridge, water and fuel canisters, and plenty of other necessities. It made its debut at the Overland Expo West in 2017, but like other vehicles on this list, isn't offered at your local Nissan dealer.

Nissan is going all out on rugged Titan conversions; 2017's Project Basecamp gets a more laid-back cousin in the form of Titan Surfcamp concept. The truck can carry surfboards and fishing rods, with amenities like a solar shower and a roof-mounted tent. Based on a factory Titan XD diesel Midnight Edition Crew Cab, Project Surfcamp gets an Icon suspension lift and massive off-road tires to take on any terrain.

Volkswagen Grand California
The Volkswagen Grand California is the ultimate camper. At nearly 20-feet-long, the Grand California is a step-up from the smaller California. It comes with features like an onboard bathroom, including a shower with a 29-gallon water reserve, a double bed, an optional roof-mounted sleeping area for kids, and a 2.5-cubic-foot refrigerator. VW won't offer the Grand California Stateside sadly, but the company will begin taking pre-orders for the camper in Europe early in 2019.
