Brooklyn, New York, United States
Born a commercial fleet vehicle and converted in 2021 to become a full-time home-on-wheels for our adventure sabbatical, this van has already lived two lives and is ready to find the right family to take her on her next adventure. Diesel-powered and boasting 85k miles under her chassis, she is a workhorse still less than one third of the way through her life on the road. Kemp Van Co. did an excellent job with this boutique conversion, with a layout that maximizes space and comfort and many thoughtful features that you’ll be discovering new uses for with every roadtrip you take.
This rig took us across the US on a National Parks tour for 18 months. Just over 21ft in length and shy of 10ft vertical, we never met a National Park that she couldn’t enter and camp in. We added Falken Wildpeak All Terrain tires to take on the gnarlier public lands and National Forests that now have less than 25k miles on them.
We provide orientation on all components (engineered to be very simple and user friendly) and technical help after the sale if any issues come up. User guide included. Original documentation of all appliances as well as electrical & gas components will be provided.
