Re: Best stealth van?

Hey Graydon,

Ditto to all the others who have thanked you for your service. USA rocks!

We are on Day 76 of a 90-day summer trip driving to and from Alaska from Colorado in a RB Sprinter/Sportsmobile. We have boondocked all but 5 nights and only been "rousted" one time - Nanaimo, BC on Vancouver Island. We haven't really needed to stay in urban areas, in fact we have avoided them to the maximum extent possible although we have been able to find boondock sites even in the city when we really needed to. After 25 years camping in the back of a pickup with a camper shell (not a camper - just a camper shell) we have developed a "nose" for those two-track side roads where no one cares if you park overnight. Lots of them out there.

Our mileage is averaging 20 mpg and we are pleased with the choice of Sprinter. Ours is a 2009 chassis, which displays the Dodge Ram logo. We think that helps deter interest - who notices a Dodge anyway??? If you have a more recent chassis with the MB badging, you may generate more interest.
2009 Sprinter RB custom floorplan began conversion at SMB West in August 2010, delivered December 20, 2010. Diesel furnace/water heater (Espar D5), gaucho, porta potti, exterior shower, sink, fridge, micro, vent fan, cargo storage in rear.
