Make the most of your next adventure exploring in and out of Amazing Grace! She is an eye-stopping beauty, a new Mercedes-Benz 2021 4x4 Sprinter 144 with a high roof and a custom interior full build out (Just got her in March 2021). I bought and designed Grace with simplicity and a love of the outdoors in mind, and great enthusiasm for the liberating quality of road-trip adventures! I love living life in flow, never planning too far ahead or getting attached to fixed expectations - especially when traveling! Touring in Grace, all of your basic needs are covered, with comfortable and cozy lodgings day and night. As Grace is a 144, she can fit in just about any parking spot, and doesn’t stand out as an obvious recreational vehicle. She is sleek and subtle, yet packs all of your needs within. The bed is cozy and comfortable, sleeping two people, with an option to rent a floor cushion for a separate sleep space below. The fridge holds all of your groceries for a week (really!), and the two-burner gas stovetop will help you get cozy meals going in a flash. There is a lavio dry-flush toilet tucked comfortably under the main seat - you’ll never know it’s there until you need it, and the beauty of lavio is that you’ll never smell it, either! Above the bench seat is a pull-out table for journaling, work, coffee, or a meal. Both the driver and passenger seats - the coziest car seats I’ve ever been in! - swivel fully around, and an additional table that stows to the side during driving can be set up for a card game, evening nightcap, or a shared meal. Grace has a convenient and efficient evaporative cooler above the bed, as well as a fan above the main open area. Now that Winter approaches, trust you’ll be traveling and sleeping comfortably with a full-van heating system, separate from the vehicles engine, and efficiently run off of her diesel fuel. Her high roof means that even the 6’+ humans can stand comfortably, so you can take care of your body as well. Grace’s 4x4 capabilities and bad-ass mud and snow tires ensure you are always safe, and the high-tech computer system (which allows apple carplay and android auto) keeps you navigated with all of your own tunes. Feeling dirty and sweaty after some mountain or desert hikes? Hang the shower off the back door, get out the teak platform, rinse and cool down! Wanting some shade to sit in the included camping chairs in the fresh air? You’ll have the option to set out the recycled outdoor rug, and roll out the side awning. Two canvas butterfly chairs and a camping table will turn the wild into your personal porch under the open sky! The front two seats are fully heated with lumbar support, and the ride as smooth as can be. You’ll feel like royalty sitting up high exploring new parts of the country! Late night far from the nearest city? Climb up the rear ladder to the roof and stargaze for a while - who knows what miracles you’ll witness! Got a furry friend who is always your adventure copilot? There is ample space under the bed for a dog travel crate or bed so your furbaby is safe and cozy as well. I designed the van interior with my pup’s travel crate in mind! Grace has explored much of the West, and is waiting for you to book her next adventure. She will smoothly and comfortable take you in style to voyages of your dreams, and you’ll have so much fun in the process!

Note: I am happy to deliver Grace locally in the Taos area. If you are desiring delivery to greater New Mexico, please contact me with as much advance notice as possible regarding your travel dates so that I can do what I can to get Grace to you.

What's included

Full bedding: organic bamboo sheets, multiple blankets, and pillows. Hand/dish towels, beach/bathing nomadix towels, plus smaller rags and towels for cleaning. Recycled plastic outdoor 5’ x 8’ carpet + 2 fold out camping chairs with camping table. Two LED strings of weatherproof lights, as shown in evening photo. Camping hammock if you find yourself amongst some trees. Full kitchen supplies: 2 pots, 2 pans (granite nonstick with lids), silverware, plates, bowls, cloth napkins, electric kettle, serrated and smooth knives with covers, cutting board, cooking supplies, pour-over coffee maker with reusable filter. Full water tank for drinking/showering/evaporative cooler. I include books on hot springs of the Southwest, as well as Moon travel books for Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona.

Please let me know once you’ve traveled in Grace, any recommendations to accommodate you and future guests better!

Recommendations

I am based in Taos, and this area is INCREDIBLE! Tour the river, hot springs, ski valley, ancient Pueblo, historic town, mountain hikes and trails. Head Northwest towards Durango, Telluride, and the amazing Ouray hot springs and mountains. Carry on further towards Moab and the breathtaking national parks and wonderland of Utah. Head Northeast from Taos towards Boulder/Denver, or Southeast into Texas! If it’s cooler outside, head East into Arizona for the breathtaking Grand Canyon and magical vortexes of Sedona. Carry on West into California, and take the monumental Route 1/Pacific Coast Highway North, perhaps up to Big Sur! I am more than happy to provide you with more information on surrounding areas.

Other things to note

Festivals must be approved by me.

Grace is 4x4; you don’t need to do anything to adjust into this; it is automatic.

Please be very mindful of my initial tour/run-thru of van with you so that you and Grace can both have a safe and enjoyable adventure together. I have everything you need to know in a little manual for you!

Make sure you always use diesel, and run the van for 5-10 minutes after she’s been cooled down a while before driving again. This is the nature of diesel vehicles.

PLEASE, no cigarette smoke. 420 ok if windows/doors open for smoke to go out.

No candles or any open flames other than the stove, please. Do not leave the propane tank open.

Have fun!

I welcome feedback!

Meet your host, Christie

Member since 2021

Hi, I'm Christie. I got Grace this Spring to allow my unplanned, spontaneous freedom in traveling, whether it be roadtripping or music and art festivals. I moved to Taos, New Mexico in June after over 12 years in California. I am constantly surprised at how much more gorgeous land there is to explore in the US! I have fallen in love with the Southwest - so much magic, mountains, rivers, and open space here. I am also very drawn in by the spiritually open people and natives, and all of our connection to this magical land. I really look forward to sharing Grace with you for your adventures, and welcome any feedback!

Our Sprinter van rental was AMAZING. The vehicle itself was so clean that it felt brand new. Christie was very communicative and walked us through all the details of how to use the van ahead of our trip. I wish we could have kept it for another few weeks but it gave us just enough “Van Life” experience until we get one of our own. 11 of 10 overall.

Both Christie and Amazing Grace were everything described. Great Vehicle—she could really hug the road and stand up to all the challenges off-road. Christie is an absolutely wonderful, accommodating and charming host. She also gave an exacting and detailed tour of the vehicle before we left, as well as a printed usage document. Christie thought of every detail to make the journey successful and comfortable. Very helpful. We enjoyed a terrific journey thanks to Christie!

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
As long as we have clear, direct communication in advance, I am open to the timing for you to pick up and drop off Grace. She lives at my home in Arroyo Seco, and your vehicle will be safe and private here while you are away.
