Make the most of your next adventure exploring in and out of Amazing Grace! She is an eye-stopping beauty, a new Mercedes-Benz 2021 4x4 Sprinter 144 with a high roof and a custom interior full build out (Just got her in March 2021). I bought and designed Grace with simplicity and a love of the outdoors in mind, and great enthusiasm for the liberating quality of road-trip adventures! I love living life in flow, never planning too far ahead or getting attached to fixed expectations - especially when traveling! Touring in Grace, all of your basic needs are covered, with comfortable and cozy lodgings day and night. As Grace is a 144, she can fit in just about any parking spot, and doesn’t stand out as an obvious recreational vehicle. She is sleek and subtle, yet packs all of your needs within. The bed is cozy and comfortable, sleeping two people. It’s not quite a full queen size - wider and slightly shorter than a standard queen. Super comfortable! The fridge holds all of your groceries for a week (really!), and the two-burner gas stovetop will help you get cozy meals going in a flash. There is a lavio dry-flush toilet tucked comfortably under the main seat - you’ll never know it’s there until you need it, and the beauty of lavio is that you’ll never smell it, either! Above the bench seat is a pull-out table for journaling, work, coffee, or a meal. Both the driver and passenger seats - the coziest car seats I’ve ever been in! - swivel fully around, and an additional table that stows to the side during driving can be set up for a card game, evening nightcap, or a shared meal. Grace has a convenient and efficient evaporative cooler above the bed, as well as a fan above the main open area. Now that Winter approaches, trust you’ll be traveling and sleeping comfortably with a full-van heating system, separate from the vehicles engine, and efficiently run off of her diesel fuel. Her high roof means that even the 6’+ humans can stand comfortably, so you can take care of your body as well. Grace’s 4x4 capabilities and bad-ass mud and snow tires ensure you are always safe, and the high-tech computer system (which allows apple carplay and android auto) keeps you navigated with all of your own tunes. Feeling dirty and sweaty after some mountain or desert hikes? Hang the shower off the back door, get out the teak platform, rinse and cool down! Wanting some shade to sit in the included camping chairs in the fresh air? You’ll have the option to set out the recycled outdoor rug, and roll out the side awning. Two canvas butterfly chairs and a camping table will turn the wild into your personal porch under the open sky! The front two seats are fully heated with lumbar support, and the ride as smooth as can be. You’ll feel like royalty sitting up high exploring new parts of the country! Late night far from the nearest city? Climb up the rear ladder to the roof and stargaze for a while - who knows what miracles you’ll witness! Got a furry friend who is always your adventure copilot? There is ample space under the bed for a dog travel crate or bed so your furbaby is safe and cozy as well. I designed the van interior with my pup’s travel crate in mind! Grace has explored much of the West, and is waiting for you to book her next adventure. She will smoothly and comfortable take you in style to voyages of your dreams, and you’ll have so much fun in the process!Note: I am happy to deliver Grace locally in the Taos area. If you are desiring delivery to greater New Mexico, please contact me with as much advance notice as possible regarding your travel dates so that I can do what I can to get Grace to you.What's includedFull bedding: organic bamboo sheets, multiple blankets, and pillows. Hand/dish towels, beach/bathing nomadix towels, plus smaller rags and towels for cleaning. Recycled plastic outdoor 5’ x 8’ carpet + 2 fold out camping chairs with camping table. Two LED strings of weatherproof lights, as shown in evening photo. Camping hammock if you find yourself amongst some trees. Full kitchen supplies: 2 pots, 2 pans (granite nonstick with lids), silverware, plates, bowls, cloth napkins, electric kettle, serrated and smooth knives with covers, cutting board, cooking supplies, pour-over coffee maker with reusable filter. Full water tank for drinking/showering/evaporative cooler. I include books on hot springs of the Southwest, as well as Moon travel books for Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona.Please let me know once you’ve traveled in Grace, any recommendations to accommodate you and future guests better!RecommendationsI am based in Taos, and this area is INCREDIBLE! Tour the river, hot springs, ski valley, ancient Pueblo, historic town, mountain hikes and trails. Head Northwest towards Durango, Telluride, and the amazing Ouray hot springs and mountains. Carry on further towards Moab and the breathtaking national parks and wonderland of Utah. Head Northeast from Taos towards Boulder/Denver, or Southeast into Texas! If it’s cooler outside, head East into Arizona for the breathtaking Grand Canyon and magical vortexes of Sedona. Carry on West into California, and take the monumental Route 1/Pacific Coast Highway North, perhaps up to Big Sur! I am more than happy to provide you with more information on surrounding areas.Other things to noteFestivals must be approved by me.Grace is 4x4; you don’t need to do anything to adjust into this; it is automatic.Please be very mindful of my initial tour/run-thru of van with you so that you and Grace can both have a safe and enjoyable adventure together. I have everything you need to know in a little manual for you!Make sure you always use diesel, and run the van for 5-10 minutes after she’s been cooled down a while before driving again. This is the nature of diesel vehicles.PLEASE, no cigarette smoke. 420 ok if windows/doors open for smoke to go out.No candles or any open flames other than the stove, please. Do not leave the propane tank open.Have fun!I welcome feedback!

Meet your host, Christie

Member since 2021

Hi, I'm Christie. I got Grace this Spring to allow my unplanned, spontaneous freedom in traveling, whether it be roadtripping or music and art festivals. I moved to Taos, New Mexico in June after over 12 years in California. I am constantly surprised at how much more gorgeous land there is to explore in the US! I have fallen in love with the Southwest - so much magic, mountains, rivers, and open space here. I am also very drawn in by the spiritually open people and natives, and all of our connection to this magical land. I really look forward to sharing Grace with you for your adventures, and welcome any feedback!

I had a wonderful experience renting the van Amazing Grace from Christie. The van was comfortable and well-equipped for our skiing trip. Christie was an amazing host, very friendly and communicative. She gave us great tips on where to go and what to see. We enjoyed the hot springs nearby, which was a perfect way to relax after a day on the slopes. I would highly recommend renting this van to anyone looking for a fun and unique adventure.

Christie was terrific to work with. Grace was comfortable to drive and live in. Everything in the van worked beautifully. We never plugged into power and the fresh water supply was plentiful. My wife and I slept front to back to pick up some space for me. We had a great time traveling New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah. Wow! What an experience the great southwest is.

Easy communication, sprinter van was as described 4x4 high clearance. Exactly what we needed. Inside amenities, kitchen and bedroom were great with all the comforts of home.

We had such an amazing experience in Grace! She is extremely reliable, clean, comfortable, and has everything we needed for an off grid camping expedition near Canyonlands. Communication with Christie was super easy, and very thorough regarding features and operations. We can’t wait until we can spend some time with Grace again soon. Kristen and Jack

Very comfortable ride. Well designed interior with everything you need. Ended up staying in hotels after the first night as the bed was a bit too short for us. I'm 6'2" and my wife is 6'. So unless you are shorter or don't mind curling up to sleep, plan alternative sleeping arrangement. Christie was a wonderful owner and has a detailed manual. She also spent about 90minutes with us going over all the systems.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
As long as we have clear, direct communication in advance, I am open to the timing for you to pick up and drop off Grace. She lives at my home in Arroyo Seco, and your vehicle will be safe and private here while you are away.
