Trekking through the Costa Rican rain forest with nothing but a hammock and the Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Series Parang works if you’re traveling solo but not so much when you’ve got the girlfriend tagging along. When you want to go off the grid without completely roughing it, the Earth Roamer XV-JP($110,000) is the vehicle for you. Built on a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4WD Unlimited platform, the Earth Roamer XV-JP has off-road capability while still providing the comforts of a queen size bed, forced air furnace, electric fan, refrigerator/freezer, and an indoor shower and toilet. We’re pretty sure that there isn’t a greater romantic gesture than providing indoor plumbing in the middle of the jungle. Happy trails.

The bezel itself can be used as a tachymeter to calculate speed by measuring elapsed time over a pre-determined distance. Which may come in handy when you’re trying to improve your race time against the cheetah in your wildcat sanctuary.
