Our Safari Extreme is our green thinking, self reliant, luxury expedition vehicle that can go to places that a typical RV could only dream of going.

Global Expedition Vehicles are much more than an extreme off-road RV. Whether you have a journey or destination in mind, our vehicles are designed and built for self-reliant travel to remote parts of the globe. With our Expedition Vehicles, count on engineering that will withstand treacherous off-road routes and extreme weather conditions.

GXV’s self-contained, redundant utilities give you freedom to explore anywhere in the world and be totally self-reliant in unfamiliar territories. We also equip our Expedition Vehicles with dual electrical systems for world travel. This allows your Expedition RV to be plugged into power anywhere in the world, 120v or 240v in the rare event you require additional power.

Combining our rugged Safari body with a chassis that can burn high-sulfur diesel, makes this expedition vehicle a TRULY go-everywhere vehicle. Please read the info on ULSD on our website.

All GXV off-road RV’s are built with marine grade materials and components, which are superior to the usual 4×4 motor homes standards. With GXV quality, the ruggedness of back-road travel will not transfer into the interior of our off-road camper. Overlanders will find the style and comfort of the Safari Extreme to rival the highest end motor coaches. Granite countertops and beautiful hand crafted woodwork are just some of the options. There is no sacrifice with
the Safari Extreme.

The GXV Safari Extreme may built on a Unimog chassis or other chassis, including International, Freightliner and Western Star.  Also, the BAE SD-Brazos 4×4 or 6×6 chassis is now available as an excellent alternate chassis for the GXV Safari Extreme.  Call for more information(417) 582-5050.
