About this RV

COVID-19 info: Extra precautions with the van are being taken during this time. All surfaces are being disinfected between rentals and additional anti-bacterial disinfectant is being used when washing the linens, towels, and other fabrics that go with the van.

"Miles" is a custom built, professional grade, off-grid Mercedes Sprinter 144 2WD located in Ridgway, CO at the base of the San Juan mountains.

He features comfortable sleeping and seating for two adults up to 6ft (72in) tall, a toilet, shower, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, a propane stove, passenger swivel seat, a roof mounted Maxxair fan, 30 gallons of fresh water, 270w of rooftop mounted solar, and 400ah of lithium ion battery paired to a 1000w inverter with 120v and 12v outlets throughout. This is the ultimate off grid adventure rig that fits in a regular parking spot!

Fully insulated and with a Espar diesel heater, the van is winterized and ready to keep you comfortable whether you're planning on sleeping at the ski resort, heading to the desert, or climbing a high peak. Plenty of room for skis, bikes, hiking gear, climbing gear, luggage, etc under the bed.

Insulated magnetic window covers are included for every window in the van and when installed the van emits no light externally. This makes it great for stealth urban camping when needed.

Once you complete your booking, I will send you a fully detailed user guide for all the features of the van, a full inventory of what comes with your rental, and provide a map of all of my favorite dispersed camping areas in the San Juans and Moab.

Covered parking for your vehicle is included for the duration of your rental. Pickup and drop-off also available at the Montrose (MTJ) airport!

Great gas mileage, easy to drive, comfortable bed. We missed having hot water inside but were able to heat it on the stove. Would recommend Chad’s van!!

Chad and Alison were good communicators from start to finish. We’re a retired couple who wanted to rent a van before buying and outfitting our own. Our trip was a fact-finding mission. We learned all about off-the-grid components, van plumbing, high clearance, dispersed camping in Western Colorado. The van is well outfitted and made for a safe and comfortable trip. Highly recommend!

Great van with all the amenities necessary for a 4-day off-grid adventure in the Colorado and New Mexico wilderness. Very accommodating owners and smooth process all around. Highly recommend renting this van if you're planning a trip to SW Colorado.

Chad's van is really nice for its its size. Well designed for both sleeping and storage of bikes and other stuff. Renting it was mainly to try out a converted van to see if we would consider buying one so we didn't take a very long trip in it.

It is very fun to drive.

Picking up the van near Ridgway is a great convenience for anyone who wants to explore SW Colorado, SE Utah, AZ and NM. So close to man great things to to do.

Great rig. All souped up with enough amenities to call yourself a camper. Highly functional kitchenette, stove, fridge, shower and plenty of storage. Super fun times. And drives great.
