27North A30 Ascender Expedition Vehicle For Sale.


The 27North 30A Ascender is an expedition vehicle unlike anything else on the market right now. It’s beautifully brutal on the outside, with a sharp, angular carbon composite shell structure bathed in a Porsche China Gray hue of a proprietary Adventure Skin coating. It’s got all the off-road accouterments you need to get way off-grid, too, like 20” beadlock wheels wrapped in military grade 41” off-road tires, not one but two 12,000 lb winches, enough high-intensity LED lighting to illuminate an entire zip code, and a heavy-duty off-road air and coilover suspension. 

But then you get to the inside, and it’s so damn luxurious and well-appointed, you almost forget about the exterior brutality. It’s got things like a full Onyx wet bath and shower, Karastan hardwood floors, Cambria Quartz countertops, and hand-crafted walnut cabinetry–among other luxury appointments. It’s about as far away from “roughin’ it” you can get in an off-grid vehicle.

Yes, it will cost you, with prices starting at $750,000 and going well north of $1,000,000 depending on spec, but like with most things, you get what you pay for. What you get here is an extremely well-engineered vehicle that’s about as good as the market offers.

If you’ve got a spare 68 seconds, we highly recommend you take a gander at this drone video of the 30A. It’s stunning:

More About 27North & Their 30A Ascender.

The engineers and craftsmen at 27North out of Battlefield, Missouri are a mission-driven bunch, passionate about connecting people to the great outdoors. They fulfill that mission through designing and building luxury adventure vehicles. For years, they’ve been building top-tier luxury adventure vans on the Dodge Promaster, Ford Transit, and Mercedes Sprinter platforms. The 30A Ascender is their first foray into the world of full-on luxury expedition vehicles. What they’ve created aims to bring all of the appointments you’d expect in a multi-million dollar luxury yacht together with industry-leading, off-road capabilities.

To do that, the Ascender has been outfitted with a wide variety of state-of-the-art technology and innovative features, like a 1200 watt solar charging system with an engine-driven backup, and an iPad Pro 12.9” central command and control system. The Ascender is crafted with the finest materials both inside and out, like carbon composite, walnut, stainless steel and Quartz. In its living quarters, it’s equipped with a two burner induction cooktop, a full size refrigerator, hand-crafted walnut cabinets, air conditioning and hydronic heating system, an oversized steel galley sink, and a full wet bath shower. 

The more you explore the 30A, the more you appreciate the engineering and design that’s gone into it, right down to the shape of the rig. Their head of engineering, Russel Gehrke, explains below that the unique design of the 30A’s camper isn’t just to make it look cool (but it does):
