This $690,000 collaboration between Arctic Trucks and KRUG is an off-road camper that’s ferocious on the outside but seriously refined on the inside.

The KRUG Expedition Bedrock XT2 pairs raw power with luxury on-the-road accommodation

The triple-axle off-grid expedition vehicle is designed for the high-end adventurer.

It has the rugged and volcanic terrain of Arctic Trucks’ Iceland home firmly in mind.

Austria-based manufacturer KRUG Expedition has also specialized in serious overland vehicles for three decades.

Their truck-based campers were designed to be off the grid long-term.

In fact, the KRUG Expedition Bedrock XT2 is one of their smaller vehicles.

Based on a Ford F-550, its platform was developed and extended to three axles by Arctic Trucks.

The result was this 8.4m (28 ft) long behemoth.

According to its creator, it’s set to be ‘the most powerful and capable travel rig that the company has ever offered’.

In fact, its 6×4 drivetrain spreads its substantial mass more evenly, making it easier to manage all types of intense terrain.

For example, there’s an optional central tire inflation system that can be operated from inside the cab.

And if you won’t be long, the living module can be taken off to off-road even harder.

However, step inside and the tables turn – elegant comfort is key.

If the weather is something you need to escape from, the cabin is highly insulated against heat and cold.

An onboard 23kW hour battery bank (topped up by the 1450 Wp solar array), allows the living experience to be completely electric.

If solar-powered campers are your thing you’ll love this solar-powered CyberTrailer camper attachment, inspired by the Tesla Cybertruck.

However, power can also be topped up via its diesel-powered HVAC system.

Forget the garish interiors you’d usually associate with an RV.

The inside of this gentle giant is fully customizable.

The base model is sumptuous, featuring a king-size bed with an additional sleeping space in the transformation dining area.

When you need refreshments, there’s a fully equipped and high-spec kitchen inside and the option for an outdoor kitchen too.

Sit down to a selection of wood veneer and leather upholstery for the interior and dine with a complete set of custom-fitted Villeroy & Bosch tableware.

Meanwhile, when you need to feel refreshed, a bathroom with a full shower, plenty of water storage, and purification equipment is an on-hand oasis.

If work encroaches on your off-road play, KRUG can also provide everything you need for the Starlink satellite-based internet system.

Alternatively, you can sit back and stream content from the twin Smart TV set-up and binge from the great beyond.

Upgraded aircon and underfloor heating are options depending on where you are and the climate you’re in.

And when you want to explore, a hydraulic bike lift is on hand so you can jump on two wheels and go.

With luxury off-roading in mind, this new electric Mercedes G-Class has an ‘uncompromised’ off-roading ability.

However, this guy decided on a DIY option, making this spaceship-esque Ford F-350 pickup truck.
