EarthRoamers are for rich guys and gals who like the adventure but hate roughing it up. It’s no surprise, then, that actor Jason Momoa also has one. Recent reports have claimed that he’s been shacking up in his RV, an EarthRoamer XV-LTi 026 he had custom-built, in a friend’s yard, after he and wife Lisa Bonet decided to get a divorce. In other words, she gets to keep the $3.2 million mansion and the gorgeous 1965 Ford Mustang convertible he had restored for her in 2020, and he gets to keep his favorite toy.
Despite some reports, Momoa’s EarthRoamer is not new. As we mentioned in a previous post, he took delivery of it in 2018, and even drove it to the 2019 premiere of Aquaman, back in the day when it was OK for hundreds of people to gather in the same place and breathe the same air. One of the videos at the bottom of the page shows Momoa’s arrival – it’s also posted on the EarthRoamer website, as some sort of ad.
Still, from what has been printed online, assuming it’s accurate, Momoa’s overlander cost some $750,000 to build, which is cheap if you think a fully-specced, non-custom XV-LTi can go as high as $700,000. Features mentioned include a Nespresso machine, a king-size bed,
The non-celebrity-owned XV-LTi is an impressive beast – and a well-specced one, at it. Described at the time it was officially introduced in 2019 as “the most advanced EarthRoamer,” it’s an upgrade over the previous XV-LT model that brings a lighter carbon fiber monocoque construction, improved fuel efficiency, and more headroom.
Built on the chassis of an AWD Ford F-550, and powered by a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel V8 engine, the XV-LTi has standard digital control system, lithium battery power bank and solar charging (an 11-kWh lithium-ion battery bank and a 1,320 W solar panel array), and mobile internet. It’s clearly outfitted to take the digital nomad of today to places where there is little trace of civilization, but Momoa has mostly been using his as his work trailer, particularly during the production of the first Aquaman film.
The XV-LTi offers five floorplans, with sleeping for three or four people depending on which you choose. The interior has a full kitchen and dining area, a king mattress over the cab, a wet bath, and plenty of storage space. Furnishes are elegant but subdued and, most importantly, high-quality: maple and teak, granite, Caesarstone and stainless steel, and faux leather.
The XV-LTi rides on 41-in Continental MPT-81 tires on military-grade beadlock wheels, and is described as “the American dream:” it’s an overlander built in America, by hand by Americans, and designed for exploring America. Jason Momoa is livin’ the American dream alright.
