27North brings forward the Ascender 30A, a fusion of uncompromised adventure and luxury amenities. Using the 2023 Ford F-550 crew cab chassis as its base, the Ascender 30A showcases a sizable geometric camper designed with a durable composite shell. This impressive structure provides sleeping accommodations for up to four individuals.
The interior of this camper speaks volumes about luxury. Boasting a yacht-style design, the walls are lined with rich walnut. It houses a comprehensive dining area and a kitchenette equipped with a stove. To add to the comfort, there is also a full shower and a bed strategically placed over the truck cab. The camper isn’t just about luxury, though. It’s designed to be as functional and durable as it is stylish. The 20-inch mil-spec beadlock wheels, combined with the 41-inch tires, ensure that the powerful diesel V8 engine can transfer all its might to the terrains it traverses. Additionally, an electronically-controlled suspension further enhances its performance capabilities.
In terms of energy efficiency and range, the Ascender 30A is well-equipped. Roof-mounted solar panels supply power for the camper’s lighting, ensuring a greener energy solution. A noteworthy feature is the 150-gallon fuel tank that allows the camper to cover up to 3,000 miles before needing a refuel. Those interested in getting their hands on this majestic vehicle can now place their orders with 27North.
Building upon the impressive base of the 2023 Ford F-550, Missouri’s 27North enhances its capabilities with their unique touch. This heavy-duty pickup’s foundation powers the latest Ascender camper conversion. The heart of this beast houses a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 diesel engine paired with a 10-speed TorqShift automatic transmission. With 475 hp and 1,050 ft lbs of torque, this vehicle is not only suitable for long journeys but also for towing hefty loads, such as boats.
While the Ford F-550 is primarily designed for the commercial fleet market, its crew cab variant can comfortably accommodate six adults. However, it’s the camper shell that truly differentiates the Ascender. Transforming the F-550 into what can best be described as a mobile luxury apartment, the camper is designed with attention to detail. Inside, one can find a spacious entertainment zone, a leather dinette, a kitchenette featuring a two-burner induction cooktop and refrigerator, and a full-size wet bath. The primary sleeping space is positioned above the truck’s cab and can fit a king-size bed, while the dinette doubles as an additional sleeping area.
To ensure comfort throughout the year, the camper is equipped with air conditioning and a hydronic heating system. Large windows offer occupants breathtaking views of their surroundings, while walnut cabinets provide ample storage. The climate control and appliances derive some of their power from the solar panels, ensuring battery conservation.
For those who are keen on acquiring more details or placing an order, 27North’s official website is the go-to destination. While the exact price of this updated Ascender remains undisclosed, its predecessor, based on the F-250 and displayed at the previous year’s LA Auto Show, carried a price tag of $1.2 million.
