The vehicle has all the amenities needed for a family of four to travel on the road, including two beds, a kitchen, and a convertible workspace area.
All of this fits inside of the four-by-four, over-cab, four-seasons approved tiny home that can sit on top of pickup truck chassis like the Ford F350.
Not interested in a Ford pickup camper? The Terranova will also be available on Dodge and Chevrolet trucks in 2022.
Earthcruiser used customer feedback and “input from outdoor enthusiasts across the board” to create Terranova’s design.
With this input, the entire design process took about eight months.
Before the model was officially unveiled, EarthCruiser already saw “unprecedented demand” for the Terranova, and this demand has only increased now that the model is officially available for order.
Generally, like other road travel makers, Earthcruiser saw a boom in interest and sales — to the tune of a 300% increase in monthly inquiries compared to the year prior — during COVID-19 as other forms of travel became less accessible.
This includes more customer inquiries from the eastern half of the US though interest has always been strong from the west.
“We’ve seen an increase in couples who want a hub-and-spoke lifestyle with a home base as an anchor but the flexibility to head out for weeks or months in the EarthCruiser and work remote,” Austin Steimer, head of engineering at EarthCruiser, told Insider in an email interview.
The company also saw more inquiries from people interested in full-time life on the road, which has been made more convenient with remote learning.
Earthcruiser has since seen a “big shift” in retirees, as well as families and millennials who are interested in working and learning remotely.
The Terranova is designed to accommodate four people, perfect for this booming family segment.
The tiny home on wheels was constructed with fiberglass and “marine-grade” materials, making it both easy to clean and durable, according to its maker.
Its foam core composites and curtains that line the windows keep the interior warm despite cold terrains.
The entry door has steps that automatically drop down when the door is opened, according to Earthcruiser’s Youtube video tour of the vehicle.
Beyond the front door is the mud room and a pull-out composting toilet that hides away when it’s not in use.
Now, let’s trek back down the stairs and into the main living area.
