Induction-ready cookware set
Utensils & dinnerware including camping mugs
Paper towels, toilet paper
Plenty of convenient storage
RecommendationsOne of the great things about SolRising is how versatile it is for boondocking (camping without hookups) and drycamping. You don't need electrical or water hookups - everything is self-contained. You can park in a campground or on the side of the road and the battery lasts for almost a full week with normal use, even cooking! And the battery charges automatically while you drive. You can even charge in "high idle" mode, meaning you can just run the engine while parked.One of my favorite trips is to Shasta - beautiful views and remote offroad spots that aren't on the reservation system and is plentiful.
Other things to noteFestivals are ok, but burning man is not allowed
No 4x4 off-roading without prior experience & approval
No smoking
Pets welcome with a deposit
Freezing conditions requires winterizing process OR setting the thermostat to 62 at all times to prevent pipe damage.

If you haven't rented a Storyteller, Solrising is your chance. Excellent "garage" space. Easy to drive. Enough electricity to last a few days. And Sol is wonderful.

My recent RV rental experience with Sol was nothing short of exceptional! From start to finish, every aspect of my trip was elevated by the fantastic service and the outstanding features of the RV.

Sol is a wonderful host. He is kind and responsive, and goes the extra mile to make sure that you have a great time. The van itself is an amazing machine. We'll certainly rent from Sol again if we're in the area. Highly recommended -

Sol Rising was the most efficiently designed floor plan. We had a great 5-day trip, much of it off road in the Sierra. Sol was very accommodating and helpful. We'll rent from him again on our next trip.

Nothing for want with this totally tricked out rig. Sol was great to communicate with and ran through the systems during the departure briefing.

Q.What makes SolRising 4x4 different from other RVs?
SolRising is not your typical RV. It's a customized 2021 Mercedes Sprinter 4x4 designed for luxury and off-grid adventures. Equipped with modern amenities, high-capacity batteries, and solar panels, SolRising offers both comfort and sustainability, perfect for families and adventurers alike. Unlike other larger RVs, SolRising's size means it fits in any standard parking place - meaning it can be parked anywhere your travels take you.

Q.If I take SolRising to freezing temperatures or the snow, do I need to winterize it?
Most RVs require a difficult winterization procedure for snow bound trips. With SolRising, because all tanks and pipes are cleverly located INSIDE the heated living space, if you were to leave the van in a place with freezing temperatures, all you need to do is set the automatic thermostat to 60+ degrees and the water system will remain trouble free. The van doesn't need to be running or occupied, and the heater will only use a small amount of fuel while preventing damage to the pipes!

Q.Do I need a special license to drive this "Class B" RV?
No special license is required to drive SolRising. A standard driver's license is sufficient to operate this 4x4 Class B RV. It's about the same length as a full size car, and just a little taller. Because of its upgraded aftermarket shocks, it's easy to drive and feels similarly to a high end car, even on curvy roads. Even with little or no RV experience, you'll quickly get used to driving SolRising.

Q.Is SolRising dog friendly?
Yes, SolRising is happy to acomodate up to two of your well mannered furry friends! We understand that they are part of the family. We just ask that you pay our small pet fee (listed in add-ons) for the increased wear and tear. Most vans of this quality don't allow dogs, so we hope you appreciate and honor our trust in you, fellow dog owner!
