No hookups, no problem! It can be hard to find a campsite with electric and water unless you book out months in advance. Enter Vanamali, our beautiful Airstream Interstate on the Mercedes diesel Sprinter chassis that has been fully upgraded with solar & lithium, making dry camping (boondocking) a breeze.

Aesthetically, she's a beaut with her burled light maple cabinetry, tons of storage space, and creamy leather seats. You will be in full luxury glamping mode whether you stay at an off-grid site in the wilderness, the parking lot at Nascar, your step-cousin's driveway, or in a regular full-hookup campsite with all the amenities.

Backup camera insures ease of backing her into that perfect spot. Pioneer audio system rocks. 200 amp hours of lithium batteries & 300 watts of solar: you will not need to run the generator for days for most of your electrical needs (ac does need hookups or generator) Propane heat, water heater, generator & stove are easy to use. Thermostat controlled ac/heat. Electric fridge, microwave & convection oven, and built in coffee maker.

Swivel TV can be viewed from anywhere in the rig. TV roof antenna provides hundreds of HD channels. DVD/Blueray player. The Interstate boasts large fresh, grey & black water tanks for its class, and is a dream to drive. Great gas mileage: 17 mpg. Back lounge area with seat belts for four, has a removable table and converts to a king bed with the touch of a button. Linens not included, king or flat queen sheets fit. Ventilation: screened back door , screened cabin windows, and electric exhaust fans in the main cabin as well as in the full wet bathroom.

Safety features of the Mercedes Sprinter chassis: ABS brakes, dual airbags, front and rear seat belts, back up camera, auto retract sliding door step.

All of these thoughtful touches combine to make your adventure easy, comfortable, and safe!

Optional add ons:
Four bike rack/cargo basket (hitch mounted)
Patio set up: Folding camp chairs, table, sand free mat

Recommendations

North Carolina and surrounds abound with gorgeous natural places. The beach is 3 hrs, the mountains are 3 hours, and loads of local parks are as close as 30 minutes from our location. We are particularly fond of the primitive National Forest parks on the Outer Banks, as well as similar parks in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. All within a half-day drive!

Other things to note

Our rental radius covers NC, SC, TN, VA, & GA only. We do not allow travel beyond those states. Return times are 9am-11 am, and must be scheduled. Vehicle pick up is from 3pm-6, and must be scheduled. No smoking. No pets (sorry, we are allergic!). We require the Interior Damage Protection Plan ($69), and the "peace of mind" level rv insurance, and highly encourage trip insurance. Please return Vanamali in the condition you found her, including emptying the tanks. Upon acceptance of your rental proposal we will send you a supplemental rental agreement to sign.
