Mitsubishi Rosa 4WD Motorhome Owned By A New Zealander

If you’re an off-roading enthusiast, this Mitsubishi Rosa motorhome may get your creative juices flowing. It was for sale a few years ago by an owner in Kainga, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Mitsubishi first made the Rosa minibus back in 1960, and the model is now in its fourth generation. Most commonly used as a city transit shuttle, some older Rosa buses have found new life as off-grid campers.

The bus had 75,000 km (46,000 miles) on it when put up for sale a few years back. Asking price was $75,000.

It’s got a 4.2L engine with 4WD. Yep, snow chains were included.

A 2.5 KW generator powers the electronics. The boat and four wheeler were part of the deal.

There’s twin bunk beds in the back, along with a shower and toilet.

We’re not sure if this was a stock model, or if the owner customized the bus after purchase. You’d probably want to increase the 30 gallon freshwater tank to lengthen the time you could stay out in the field. The bus looks to be in fairly good condition, considering the owner designed it for off-road use.
