EarthCruiser has announced a range of purpose-built modular camper
bodies is now available from their factory in Caboolture (Queensland).
“Blue Dog” camper bodies have a versatile interior design that incorporates two slide-out sidewall sections to
expand the interior space available. This provides a spacious living and catering area and yet still allows
sufficient room for separate shower and toilet compartments.
What makes the Blue Dog camper body unique is that it is supplied as a completed module, insulated and fitted out
with air conditioning and all the interior equipment necessary, including a micro-wave and television, ready for
fitment to the light truck chassis of the buyer's choice.
“A Blue Dog camper body can be fitted by the customer, at our own factory, or by any competent body builder to
a number of chassis’ including such well known Japanese manufacturers as FUSO, Hino and Isuzu plus the European
makes of Mercedes-Benz with the Sprinter cab chassis, Iveco with the Daily and Volkswagen with the Crafter,” said
EarthCruiser’s MD Lance Gillies.
“The interchange between our American and Australian businesses provides the benefit of cost savings through
our global manufacturing while maintaining the Aussie know-how of what works and lasts in our tough climate,”
“This flexibility of mounting options gives tremendous choice to the customer. It may well be they already have
a light truck of their own. By purchasing a Blue Dog camper body they can immediately benefit from having all the
versatility of a purpose-built camper for whatever leisure activities they choose.”
“Where the customer travels is entirely their choice. Add the Blue Dog camper body to a 4x4 chassis and the
options available for off-road travel immediately take on a new and greater dimension,” said Lance.
The Blue Dog camper bodies are designed by EarthCruiser Overland Vehicles (EOV), the manufacturer of the
EarthCruiser Expedition vehicles.
The EarthCruiser is an unique go anywhere Australian all-wheel-drive motor home designed for extreme off-road
travel and easy transportation anywhere in the world. The Blue Dog camper range is designed for those that enjoy the
adventurous lifestyle but don’t want to turn their holiday into an extreme expedition.
Fitment of a Blue Dog camper body can be completed in under 16 hours by a competent tradesman, (dependent on
whether through-cab access is required) and pricing is in the region of $67,000 (including GST, excluding freight
and/or fitting). The total weight of a typical unit is 1,275 kg.
