About Jim Laybourn

Bob the Revel is fully stocked with everything for a true overland adventure. Your 4X4 Basecamp for the adventure to remember. Returning to the trailhead after a epic Teton hike has never been so relaxing. Trailhead lounge, electric fridge, even a hot shower. Classic National Parks adventures in real luxury. Or maybe it's a destination a little more remote. A mountain lake where your only neighbors are moose and beavers. Getting cozy by a great campfire, your favorite beverage in a real glass while something sizzles on the grill.  Unbelievable views from the summits of Teton, Togwotee  and Beartooth Passes, the kind of great trip where you forget what day it is. Solar powered to stay off grid for extended periods, also includes a super quiet generator for all possible power needs. Everything you could possibly want is already loaded, just pack your clothes ​We include the ultimate kindling kit to get the mood started right. Relax on the Tepui outdoor lounge or enjoy the indoor lounge with a view, Induction cooktop, electric fridge, camp grill & table, grill tools, outdoor rugs, Silwy fine glassware, a motorized awning w/ lights and more This is roughing it in style. Designed specifically for active outdoor enthusiasts, this 2020 Winnebago Revel takes a no nonsense approach to adventure with a straightforward design and function driven features. Taking full advantage of the proven 4×4 Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis, the Revel’s 3.0 litre turbo diesel puts 325 lbs ft of torque through an on demand 4WD system, complete with high and low range and hill descent mode for added off road capability. Inside, the Revel’s unique features start with a floorplan designed around a Power Lift Bed with a 140 cu. ft. custom luxury lounge below. This allows for a 49 x 79 inch cross coach sleeping area.  A full galley, including a 2.5 cu. ft. refrigerator, makes meal prep a breeze, while the all in one bath and gear closet boasts a cassette style toilet that eliminates the need for a separate black water holding tank. Add a rooftop solar power system, diesel powered Espar hydronic heating and hot water, a dinette with a pull up table that converts to additional sleeping space, and many more innovative features and the result is the new Revel: quite simply the most off road capable RV Winnebago has ever built. Dining and living space are maximized by the flared body and Power Lift Bed that converts to a 49 x 79 inch sleeping surface. Welded aluminum cabinet face frames, dual pane windows with insulated shades, snap in screens for fresh air circulation, and a Mach 10 NDQ AC system and Honda e2200i ultra quiet generator all contribute to the Revel’s off the grid livability. This Revel is powered by the innovative, fuel efficient Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter, with interior aesthetic upgrades, similar to what is in the Mercedes S Class luxury auto: 1. On demand 4 wheel drive with low range, to selectively stop individual wheels if wheel spin is detected.   The system can be safely driven on dry pavement without the risk of damaging differential locks.

Amazing experience! Happy with every detail. The van had everything we needed for a 7 day road trip through 3 National Parks. Spent many hours researching and searching for the perfect van with all the amenities and so happy we found this one. It was great! Highly recommended. Thanks Jim for making our 20th anniversary trip seamless.

What a great host and great rig! Jim has thought of everything and it is very well provisioned with everything but your clothes and food! Jim did a great job explaining how everything works. He has lots of good tips and trick on navigating per your interests to make sure it's a great trip! We were there for a wedding and got into some great wildlife sightings/hiking/and town activities. The rig is really easy to drive and fits in a standard parking spot which made it easy, still with plenty of room inside for two!

Jim’s Van was perfect for our trip through Yellowstone and Grand Teton NPs and Idaho. It is truly a great way to see the area and we enjoyed the flexibility of having our home on wheels! We camped in some amazing areas, and the van was equipped with everything we could want- camp stove, pots, utensils, glassware, and a mini fridge to hold groceries. Would definitely recommend renting this van to visit the national parks and surrounding areas!

Great rental! I would highly recommend renting this Winnebago. It is clean, brand new and easy to drive. Everything you need is provided in the van. Jim responds to any questions immediately and offers tips/suggestions on areas to visit. I had a great time at the Tetons and Yellowstone, thanks so much!
