The Torsus Online Configurator Lets You Build Your Dream Off-Road RV
Create a Go-Anywhere, Do-Anything Monster Rig for Overlanding Adventures
Finding a rugged and capable platform for building an off-road RV just got a little easier. Torsus—the company known for its nearly-indestructible busses and cargo vans—has created an online configurator, giving would-be buyers a chance to build the foundation for their dream overlanding vehicle.
The tool allows users to select everything from the type of engine, transmission, and suspension, to the amount of ground clearance and even which side of the vehicle the steering wheel is on.
The configuration process starts by selecting which Toruss vehicle best meets your needs. The company offers two models—the bus-like Praetorian that seats up to 35 people and the Terrastorm, an off-road capable van with room for 17. Both feature diesel engines, heavy-duty suspensions, and four-wheel-drive systems. Each is also highly capable as an off-roader right off the assembly line.
After selecting the specific vehicle you want, the configurator next provides two more options from which to choose. The first is a base model with a standard buildout designed for hauling passengers around remote locations and across rugged terrain. The other is the “Personal Freedom” build, which is essentially a stripped-down version of the Praetorian or the Terrastorm, with an empty cargo area ripe for customization.
Choosing either option provides a full rundown of the vehicle’s specs, most of which can be further customized to get the exact set of features and performance you’re looking for.
Most overlanders and off-road RVers will likely select the Personal Freedom option of the Torsus vehicle of their choice. This essentially provides a blank slate for customizing the interior with all the features, appliances, and amenities they want from a motorhome. Most of those furnishing will require aftermarket installations, as Torsus doesn’t offer camping configurations.
The configurator tool does allow buyers to choose between a dizzying array of other options, however. In addition to selecting items such as the style of the wheels, the placement of sliding doors, and the type of batteries installed, users can add features like a locking rear differential, adaptive cruise control, and hill descent assist.
There are also numerous styles of mirrors to choose from, the option for a rear-facing camera, protective body elements, and several styles of windows.
The Personal Freedom build for the Praetorian starts at $193,000, while the Terrastorm is a relative bargain with a price tag of about $81,000 before customization. For that price, customers get a vehicle built for off-road performance and a platform on which they can build a monster of an RV.
