We are a young couple living in the Roaring Fork Valley, & fully subscribe to the ‘work hard, play harder’ lifestyle. We love nothing more than discovering the country on climbing road-trips to locales like Red Rocks, Joshua Tree & Bishop. Our introduction to ‘Van Life’ came after we grew tired of the hassle of car camping. Our first van was a Chevy Explorer conversion, & it allowed us to keep all our gear in one place, hit the road on a Friday with nothing more than our weekend clothes & climbing or biking gear, & get as much time being weekend warriors as possible. We soon pined for the standing room & kitchen associated with a taller van, & set our sights on a Sprinter Van. We then bought ‘Tootsie’ the Dodge Sprinter Van; a 2006 Sportsmobile conversion. After doing a lot of work to the interior, the van suited our style perfectly. We sold her in May of 2018 to a very happy family. Our second sprinter, 'Blue', is a 144" 2016 4x4 Mercedes Sprinter, and she was our first from scratch build-out. There’s nothing like pulling into camp, cracking a beer & taking in the view. Home really is where you park it & we look forward to sharing it with you.
We had a great time in Blue! Kimbo and Jason made the whole experience very easy and were very responsive to questions we had while on the road. They have expertly designed the vehicle and it felt as comfortable as home.
I had wanted to try a Sprinter van to see if it would be something I could take out by myself. Big Blue was reliable, easy to drive & set up on my recent photography trip.
Jason was very responsive to a couple questions I had once I was off and setting up. The whole process of hand off and return went well.
Highly recommend Big Blue & the Schirato’s as hosts.
We had an amazing experience with “Blue”. Kimbo and Jason are extremely easy to work with and very attentive to any questions or concerns. The Sprinter Van drove great on highway, city and dirt roads and was easily maneuverable. We will look to rent “Blue” again!!!
We really fell in love with this van during our trip, it’s got everything you need to make it feel like home. The layout and design are excellent, and it’s got all the bedding, kitchenware and camping accessories you could need!
it’s also super easy and comfortable to drive.
Jason and Kimbo are great hosts and were really helpful and easy to communicate with during our month long trip.
What an adventure we had in Blue! We took our family of 4 ( 2 adults and 2 kiddos ages 1 and 4) out in Blue for a weekend in the UT desert. This was our first experience in van camping and can’t imagine a better experience! The van was the perfect size for us... we slept and ate comfortably without feeling crowded. The van was fully stocked with everything we could need (dishes, cooking gear, eve…
This was a great way to have a comfortable adventure in a van that could take us to special remote spots in style.
Blue was the perfect rig for our recent Colorado spring skiing adventure. It got us right to the snowy trailhead in the morning and kept us warm and dry at night. The van's amenities were just right-- easy for cooking and cleaning and morning coffee, with enough room to get ready for the day, to store all of our gear while on the move, and be comfortable at night. We'd definitely hit the road with Blue again!

We had a great trip in Blue! Highly recommend Kimbo and Jason's van. Both Kimbo and Jason were very helpful and accomodating.
Kimbo and Jason's sprinter van 'Blue' is the ultimate adventure rig. We took it out for a quick trip but will definitely book again for a longer one. The van has everything you need and is completely ready to go out on the road right when you pick it up. Jason gave us a quick and thorough run down of where things are inside but it is all very intuitive.
Not only is Blue super well equipped for anything, but it's also so cozy with beautiful interiors and details that make it feel like home. We can't wait to take it out again soon, we highly recommend renting Blue for your next adventure!
Great way to try out a sprinter and see if it's something we want to invest in. Thanks Kimbo & Jason!
