Sprinter based autonomous RV

Food for thought:

Take a look at Canada's first autonomous RV - Kitchener-Waterloo - CBC News

Send $$$$$$ and van delivers itself to your door! Takes itself camping if it gets bored.

If your autonomous Sprinter takes itself on a beer run, who is the designated driver?

But wait, it can drive you to your destination while you sleep. You arrive refreshed and raring to go. Think of how easy it would be to drive across country from TN to the VOF meet and greet in NV. It just needs to learn how to pump and pay for the fuel along the way.

It would be electric and just jump on a docking charging station every so often , like a giant Roomba vaccuum.
