Pretty cool. Did you talk to the guy about them at all?

We got a tour of one of them. That's me in the blue shirt in the doorway. Anyway--built in Nixa, MO and can be customized however you want it. The stove top runs on the truck diesel fuel so there is no propane. Has solar panels on the roof. One piece shower, toilet, sink area with grated floor for drainage. They had been out on the rim of the Grand Canyon and then on their way back to Illinois they camped a few nights on remote mountain tops in Colorado. Claims they have never been stuck!

Those were on the show Extreme RV's. They are made for some hardcore boondock camping in remote rugged terrain and are really expensive. You can really get off the grid in one of those bad boys.

The stove top burns diesel fuel? I'd rather have propane. Pretty cool otherwise.

Seemed a little odd to me but I guess it's so they only have to carry one fuel source.

Years ago, probably before your time, cook stoves used kerosene. My mom cooked many a meal on one. I think we got an electric one in 1945 or 1946. Ours was exactly like this one.

I saw something very similar in the Yukon last year except it was green and appeared to have been made by Mercedes.
The folks camping in it were Dutch, or German (I'm pretty sure the hamguy talked to them).
The vehicle would not have looked out of place in Afghanistan.
Definitely "outcools" FJ cruisers, Land Rovers, etc...





(and yes, I want one!)

Coot, we have an old Coleman stove similar to your picture that my wife's grandparents had. It burned the white gas. Still have it in our barn for some reason. Antiques for sale!

Yukon, the unit in the foreground is a Mercedes. The other one didn't have a logo on it that I could readily see. Front ends are similar so I would guess they both are.
