The EarthRoamer LTi is a luxury carbon fiber tiny home that costs up to $700,000 and is built on a four-wheel-drive Ford F-550 chassis.

The LTi has details from EarthRoamer’s LTS and HD builds, both of which are also camper vans built on a Ford. However, unlike the two other models, LTi’s body has been vacuum-infused with carbon fiber. Its maker claims this makes the vehicle “lighter and stronger” and allows the LTi to be over 1,000 pounds lighter than the LTS.

The monocoque carbon fiber body isn’t the only lightweight but strong part of the tiny home on wheels: the front and rear bumpers are aluminum, giving it the same “tough but light” qualities.

There are five different floor plans that all affect various aspects of the interior, including the size of the galley, storage options, and the number of people who can seat and sleep inside the LTi. It also includes a bathroom with a shower and toilet.

There’s no generator or propane tank onboard.


The windows are flush mount and molded onto the body of the vehicle, saving space while preventing leaks and resealing needs, according to Earthroamer. They also have screens and blinds.

  • The Telluride has the most seating space but takes away space from the pantry and kitchen galley. This option seats six people and sleeps four.
  • The Boulder has a large food pantry with a medium sized galley and sofa. It seats and sleeps four people.
  • The Breckenridge, the most popular, has a dinette booth that converts into a six-foot bed while still offering the same sized galley and sofa as the Boulder option. The Breckenridge floorplan also seats and sleeps up to four people.
  • The Aspen has the most kitchen and counter space, as well as a dinette booth, but only seats and sleeps three people.
  • The Crestone has the longest galley and a large galley storage and pantry with a medium-sized sofa, but also seats and sleeps three people.
