Your typical recreational vehicle (RV) is great if you want to meander from campsite to campsite using their facilities as you go. If you want to explore remote areas, though, you're going to need something with a bit more grit. EarthRoamer's XV-HD will let you do that without sacrificing luxury.

When Ford discontinued the E-Series commercial van last year, California-based Sportsmobile found itself without one of the primary van platforms it relied on for its rugged 4x4 camper vans. Rather than discontinue the model to focus on other designs, Sportsmobile decided to transform the still-available E-Series Cutaway into a custom-built camper, designing its own fiberglass shell to fill the void left by Ford. Sportsmobile's E-Series camper van is now more spacious and focused than ever.

Last year we heard about the GRIT Freedom Chair, an off-road wheelchair that users propel using arm levers instead of hand rims on the wheels. While it's pretty neat, it isn't the first product of its kind. One of its predecessors is the British-made Mountain Trike, which is now available in two new models to accommodate riders with varying physical challenges.

Mercedes-Benz has revealed a refreshed version of its G-Class 4x4. Hitting dealerships later this year, the new G-Class lineup includes the all-new EDITION 463 package and the new 416-hp twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 previewed in the G 500 4x4² concept revealed at this year's Geneva Motor Show. The venerable off-roader is more capable than ever.

Vehicles that are practical and tough enough to deal with the rigors of farm life need to be able to carry their loads across rough and rocky terrain. That's where the Australia-built Tomcar comes in. Built around a strong, light frame, the Tomcar has been designed to carry people and their goods across whatever Mother Nature can throw at it.

Motorcycle camping trailers are out there, but they're not as common a sight on roadways as car and truck camping trailers. In fact, we didn't notice a single motorcycle trailer at last year's Overland Expo, a show split neatly between off-road campers and adventure motorcycles. Perhaps we should have traveled to Bend, Oregon, instead. That's the birthplace of the new Freespirit Spitfire XT, a rig that carries a pop-up tent and storage box behind any capable bike or small car. Read More
This is either the craziest idea to hit the snow, or one of the coolest. Produced by the Austrian company Mattro, it's called the Ardenner and it features not one, but three snowmobile-like tracks clawing into the snow and ice to provide a great deal of forward thrust. And the coolest thing: It's all electric. Read More

Back in February, Rolls-Royce announced its plans to manufacture an SUV ... or more specifically, "a vehicle that can cross any terrain." While we're still waiting to see what that vehicle will look like, the automaker has provided photos of the first "engineering mule" that it's using to develop the necessary all-wheel drive suspension system.

Every time an electric skateboard crosses our desk here at Gizmag, it seems to be because somebody clever has worked out a way to make them lighter, run for longer, or fold up in some weird shape that we've never seen before. One glance at the latest addition to Epic Skateboard's lineup and it's pretty obvious that the team wasn't all that concerned with building a commuter-friendly transport option you can slide under the bus seat. The four-wheel-drive Dominator 3200 Pro is the most powerful skateboard the Australian company has ever produced, so it was with equal parts excitement and trepidation that we fired it up and took it to for a spin.

Jeep always impresses with its annual barrage of concept vehicles designed for Easter Jeep Safari. This year, it's really outdone itself. Not only has it revealed the burliest Wrangler pickup concept we've seen yet, but it also has an airy, military-look Wrangler, a surf-styled tribute to the original 1970s-era Cherokee, a Grand Cherokee overland camper, and three other interesting packages that reimagine its existing lineup.
