TruckHouse Unveils New Carbon Fiber Expedition Vehicle

TruckHouse has launched the all-new BCR, a turn-key 4×4 expedition vehicle developed in collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles, the company announced.

BCR features a fully redesigned carbon monocoque house crafted with aerospace-grade materials, TruckHouse said, and is integrated into the AEV Prospector XL (PXL) truck.

“I was initially impressed with TruckHouse’s extremely high build quality, strong work ethic, and logical approach. After talking through what they wanted to build next, we naturally saw an opportunity to collaborate, not only by supplying the AEV Prospector XL chassis, but working together we were able to design the BCR’s external surface to perfectly compliment the refined ruggedness of the PXL” says Dave Harriton, CEO and Founder of AEV.

The BCR introduces the patent pending HiPR Foil (High Pressure Reduction, “Hyper”) aerodynamic system. This feature reduces the frontal high-pressure zone by pulling air away from the leading face of the cabover resulting in improved drivability and fuel economy, TruckHouse said.

Inside, the carbon fiber house is designed with an open floor plan and 270 degrees of windows that envelop the U-shaped rear dinette, and has an interior standing height of 6 feet, 6 inches.

The BCR is Starlink Mobility compatible and is furnished with other modern conveniences, TruckHouse said, including an induction cooktop, a convection oven/microwave, a spacious sink, and a marine 2-drawer fridge/freezer.

The vehicle accommodates four adults and includes a wet bath that can be outfitted with a choice of three toilet systems (cassette, dry flush, or composting). An optional pass-through to the truck’s cab is also offered.

“People are inspired by the vision that expedition vehicles can be built to the same quality and longevity standard as yachts and airplanes – we saw that with the tremendous success of the BCT,” says TruckHouse CEO and Co-founder Matt Linder. “The BCR is our continued demonstration of that vision.”

The AEV Prospector XL, based on the RAM 3500, is upfitted with features such as 40-inch tires, a stamped steel front bumper, a 3-inch dual sport RT suspension system, and Highmark fender flares.
