CORE Vehicles, a new business division from EarthCruiser focused on serving commercial market and DIY overlander needs, has entered into a strategic partnership with Total Composites Ltd., a premium supplier of composite truck bodies for commercial truck and motor home builders that offers innovative, ready-to-assemble truck body kits.
CORE Vehicles line of 4X4 truck chassis are designed for a broad range of commercial applications, ranging from fire fighting, construction, law enforcement and Do-It-Yourself expedition truck builders that maintain the highest standards of EPA certification and brake testing.
“EarthCruiser has been known for creating bespoke customer specific turnkey overland vehicles. With CORE and Total Composites we are giving the consumer the opportunity to build their overland vehicle of their dreams," said John Stafford, business development director for CORE Vehicles.
Popular with the DIY market, Total Composites has experienced significant demand for their flat packed composite expedition truck bodies the last several years. It is a natural fit to marry the TC empty shell house with the CORE chassis to give customers the ultimate blank canvas to build their dream expedition vehicle.
"This partnership provides a virtual one stop shop for the overland DIY consumer who wants to create their own space and trust they’re working with a safe DOT legal chassis and best-in-class chassis-house combination that stands up to the rigors of overland life on the road. We have a storied proven chassis from Earth Cruiser combined with a solid state of the art house from Total Composites which provides the consumer with a best in class DIY solution.”
CORE Vehicles will stock Total Composite flat packed bodies at its Bend, Ore., headquarters to allow for faster turnaround times for customers who want a CORE chassis including a torsion free subframe, with either the flat packed body or assembled by CORE Vehicles. Accessories such as windows, roof hatches, diesel heaters, water boilers, and more can be directly ordered through Total Composites.
