Moonshot is a custom converted Mercedes Sprinter great for trips and getaways. With a bed, lots of counter space, induction cooktop, high-end sink, outdoor solar shower and solar electrical system! She also sports the rare 4-cylinder diesel (as opposed to the normal V6), meaning Moonshot gets much better fuel efficiency than most Sprinters, but with a 7-speed transmission, gets all the power you need. Key Features: - High-end electrical system. 200aH lithium-ion battery bank + Victron (top-end, marine-grade) electrical components - 3-way charge: 320W solar panel, automatic alternator re-charging, shore power hookup - 2000w inverter means you can plug in any household AC appliance - Refrigerator is Marine-grade and runs of DC power for efficiency - 20gal fresh water tank and 0.2micron water filter, electric water pump with silencer - high-end sink + faucet at sliding door allows outdoor "shower" rinsing too - Custom Mahogany cabinetry + interior paneling built from Marine-grade ply - Butcherblock counters - Rear ladder; Roof rack designed to just barely fit a 9'6 longboard - Easy-to-clean flooring, extra storage above vehicle seating - 2WD with new stubby tires - Passenger swivel seat - Custom bench seat with Lagun swivel table in matching Mahogany - Solar outdoor shower on roof (but I never use it, really just a backup water tank)

What's included

- Induction cooktop
- Electric Hot Water Kettle
- Milk frother & coffee grinder
- Basic cookware, utensils, plates, bowls, mugs
- Surfboard rack on roof
- Blankets and pillows

Recommendations

With the 320w solar panel and alternator charger, house batteries stay topped up with direct sunlight and / or regular driving, and with a 20-gal fresh water tank, if you're careful with water use you can go the better park of a week on one tank of water, so you could take the van camping for 5+ days of boondocking! My favorite trips have been on BLM Land (public lands that don't require permits) just driving on dirt roads and finding a place to camp and staying for a few days without any hassles. Such an incredible sense of freedom!

Other things to note

The PICKUP TIME IS 3pm and the DROP OFF TIME IS 11am! If you need to schedule extra time, please add the early drop-off or late pickup fee (or both) WHEN YOU MAKE THE INITIAL BOOKING. It's not really possible to add this fee afterword on outdoorsy, and I do need to know exact pickup and dropoff times so that I can work my schedule around the rental and have time to prepare the van for you and for the next renter. Thanks!

The Van was great for our trip. It provided us with a comfortable and mobile shelter like intented. The wooden insides are really cozy, especially when camping in the woods. The provided tech is reliable, we always had plenty of battery capacity left for every possible usecase, like heating water, cooking, light, heating. Jay, the lessor is really friendly and helpfull. Because we went camping in the winter season he even gave us a winter sleeping bag and thick blankets.

We had a great trip in Moonshot. The van was very comfortable, stocked with almost everything we needed, was way easier to drive than I expected and felt like a good deal compared to some other vans we looked at. We booked a few months in advance, and by the time our trip came around, the heater and wifi were no longer working, which would just be good to know if you are counting on using either of those (we weren't so it was no big deal). Jay responded quickly to any questions we had, and overall this was a great rental experience. I would definitely recommend renting from Jay.

Moonshot was a fantastic vehicle with every amenity I could want, and the owner was extremely thorough and helpful with great communication.

Jay was an awesome host who was extremely accommodating in our trip plans. The van offers a perfect balance of rugged and equipped but also is comfortable and a great place to spend the evening. Amazing sprinter van, amazing time, would 10/10 absolutely recommend!
