In October 2022, we took delivery of our 2022 4x4 2500 MERCEDES SPRINTER VAN (144").  After being on the road full-time for over a year, we quickly realized that we were going to need to adjust our approach in how we travel in order to be able to go "Off Grid" to explore all that the incredible National Parks & disperse camping grounds this great country offers.  With traveling full-time in a 45' Class A diesel pusher, it is just not possible for us to truly go "Off Grid" to explore places like the Grand Canyon, Grand Tetons, etc.  

After many hours of research, we decided to purchase a Mercedes 4x4 Sprinter Van and have it modified to be able to flat tow behind a Class A motor coach.  Our plan would be to travel to a location in which we could park our Class A for an extended period of time so that we can jump in the Sprinter Van & travel / camp off grid.   

Currently, we have contracted with Casa Conversions (Custom Van Converter) out of Leander, TX to turn our Sprinter van into a true off self contained adventure van.  Prior to turning our van over to the team at Casa Conversions, we engaged a Houston based RV & Welding shop to install a device called the Superior Driveline Drive Shaft Disconnect that will allow for us to mechanically disconnect the rear driveshaft to allow for us to flat tow it behind our motor coach.  

We hope to take delivery of our fully converted Mercedes 4x4 in late April 2023.
