The WanderBOX Outpost 35 4×4 is an RV Made for Boondocking
This Mobile Base Camp is Built for Working and Playing Off-Grid
What do you do if you’re looking for the perfect RV to fit your needs but can’t find exactly what you’re looking for? If you’re WanderBOX CEO Mike Barnwell, you design a vehicle that meets your exact specifications and launch a new company to build it. The result is the Outpost 35 4×4, a mobile office and living space well-suited for boondocking.
Barnwell’s dream RV included the luxuries of a Class A model and the off-road capabilities of an expedition vehicle. On top of that, he wanted something that would allow him to live off-grid for an extended period of time without sacrificing comfort and amenities. Disappointed with the options that he found already on the market, he elected to create his ideal motorhome himself.
Built on a Ford F-600 Super Duty chassis, the Outpost 35 is a legitimate boondocking beast. The RV comes with a 200-gallon fresh water tank, which can be refilled from a lake, river, or stream using the vehicle’s onboard filtration system. The motorhome also includes a 125-gallon Greywater tank and a 75-gallon black water tank.
When living and working off-grid, boondockers also need power. The Outpost utilizes roof-mounted solar panels to generate up to 2,800 watts of energy, which is stored in a 24-kWh lithium battery pack. A diesel-powered generator serves as a backup to the solar panels when needed, with either system capable of running the RVs heat and air conditioning units.
An Apartment on Wheels
Inside, the Outpost 35 isn’t lacking in features either. The RV comes with a private bedroom complete with dressers, nightstands, a closet, and a king-size bed. When not in use, that bed lifts out of the way to reveal a large fold-out desk equipped with dual 32-inch monitors. A second sleeping area—with a queen-size mattress—is found in the cab-over space.
The RV’s kitchen is equally impressive. It features a three-burner induction stove, washer and dryer, convection microwave oven, and a residential-sized refrigerator with built-in ice maker. Solid-surface countertops, a generous amount of cabinet space, a stainless steel sink, and a trash compactor round out the features. And for those who prefer to cook their meals and entertain guests outdoors, the vehicle comes with an exterior kitchen. That space is covered by a 22-foot awning, with the option to add an enclosed patio annex.
Other interior amenities include a spacious bathroom with a marine-style toilet and a walk-in shower. The RV also comes with a modern entertainment center equipped with a flat-panel TV and speakers integrated throughout the cabin. A Starlink satellite internet receiver makes it easy to stream music and movies even in remote locations. A touchscreen and voice commands allow RVers to adjust lighting, temperature, and other settings throughout the cabin, while a four-person bar serves as a gathering point for travelers.
Four-Wheel Drive RV
Because it rides on the F-600 Super Duty platform, the Outpost 35 ships from the factory with four-wheel drive and an auto-adjusting hydraulic suspension. It also comes with a 6.7L PowerStroke turbo-diesel engine that produces 330 horsepower and 750 pound-foot of torque, allowing it to tow up to 10,000 pounds. It even ships with 41-inch off-road tires that provide good traction on a variety of surfaces.
Those specs make the RV a capable off-roader, although it is better suited for rough terrain rather than highly technical rock crawling. The vehicle is designed to reach remote campsites but isn’t necessarily a true expedition vehicle. Still, it does deliver many features and amenities designed to allow for off-grid camping for extended periods.
