Self-sufficient scout camper is less than 20,000
The latest innovation from Adventurer Manufacturing in its range of award-winning motorhomes is “on a mission to regain the pioneering spirit”.
With its new brand of campers called Scout, the Washington-based parent company, which has more than 50 years of experience in the motorhome industry, is rethinking the traditional motorhome travel experience, where owners tow bulky platforms, depend on camping hookups for electricity and water, and tend to eat and relax inside their luxury units instead of spending more time outside.
Campers in Scout Trucks
In contrast, Scout campers are built to be light, multifunctional, compact and portable. They are designed to be used anywhere, especially off the grid, with equipment that is energy efficient, easy to use for any user, and uses natural resources for energy.
The first of the three Scout brand models to be presented this year is the Scout Olympic. Two other models, the Yoho and the Kenai, are expected to launch later this year. The Olympic, considered the mid-size model of the trio, can accommodate up to six campers and has a starting price of $ 19,980.
- The Olympic Scout weighs 1,133 pounds. The internal dimensions are almost 1.80 m long and just over 1.50 m high.
- The unit is designed to fit the beds of half-ton trucks and large trucks like the Toyota Tundra, the Nissan Titan, the Ford F-150, the Ram 1500, the Chevrolet and the GMC 1500 .
- The motorhome is devoid of any wood or frame. Rather, it is constructed with polyurethane and fiberglass composite panels.
- Up to six people can sleep comfortably indoors, with the possibility of installing a cabin, a conversion table and a pop-up tent on the roof.
- It is equipped with a 4.9 gallon fresh water tank and optional 2.6 gallon portable toilets. There is no gray tank.
- The motorhome is considered a 4 season recreational vehicle with its optional 4.5 BTU propane fireplace.
- The Olympic is intended to support off-grid businesses thanks to its energy-efficient and autonomous components. This includes a 160-watt solar panel, a portable battery system with a built-in 1500-watt inverter, and a gravity water filtration system.
- In order to move the interior of the motorhome outside, several pieces of furniture and equipment can be moved outside. The fridge-freezer, dining table, propane cooktop, water tank and power plant are just a few of the many portable and versatile pieces.
