About this RV

Covid-19 info: Extra precautions with the van are being taken during this time. All surfaces are being disinfected between rentals and additional anti-bacterial disinfectant is being used when washing the linens, towels, and other fabrics that go with the van.

"Miles" is a custom built, professional grade, off-grid Mercedes Sprinter 144 2WD located in Ridgway, CO at the base of the San Juan mountains.

He features comfortable sleeping and seating for two adults up to 6ft (72in) tall, a toilet, shower, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, a propane stove, passenger swivel seat, a roof mounted Maxxair fan, 30 gallons of fresh water, 270w of rooftop mounted solar, and 400ah of lithium ion battery paired to a 1000w inverter with 120v and 12v outlets throughout. This is the ultimate off grid adventure rig that fits in a regular parking spot!

Fully insulated and with a Espar diesel heater, the van is winterized and ready to keep you comfortable whether you're planning on sleeping at the ski resort, heading to the desert, or climbing a high peak. Plenty of room for skis, bikes, hiking gear, climbing gear, luggage, etc under the bed.

Insulated magnetic window covers are included for every window in the van and when installed the van emits no light externally. This makes it great for stealth urban camping when needed.

Once you complete your booking, I will send you a fully detailed user guide for all the features of the van, a full inventory of what comes with your rental, and provide a map of all of my favorite dispersed camping areas in the San Juans and Moab.

Covered parking for your vehicle is included for the duration of your rental. Pickup and drop-off also available at the Montrose (MTJ) airport!

Bedding, cookware, silverware, cleaning supplies, dish soap, stove w/ fuel, water, 2 camp chairs, fold up camp table, toilet sanitization tables, blackout window covers, front window mosquito nets, first aid kit, deck of playing cards, salt, pepper, olive oil, spices.

We had a great trip to a nearby campground. The van was solid to drive; especially in the rain. We appreciated the new beefy tires and suspension system. Chad was stellar to work with and communicated well. He's thoughtfully laid out the interior of the van and maximized space well. We would definitely rent this van again. It was a new and fun adventure for us.

Great camper van in excellent condition despite its age! Fantastic for moving from site to site! Chad was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Do it!

We had a great trip and enjoyed the camper. Chad and Alison were great!!! The van was really nice. It’s the absolute perfect desert mountain biking adventure setup year round. The heater was awesome, much appreciated on chilly Colorado mornings and waiting out rain storms. We brought a camp stove with us so that we could set up at the picnic tables, and not have to remove/move the whole camper stove set up. All in all it’s a great rig on well-maintained roads and smooth as silk on the highway. The owners take excellent care of it - You’ll love it!!
