One of our favorite times to travel is during the cold weather months. Especially visiting a national/state park that is usually too congested or too hot during the summer. During these months, there is less crowds, more breathing space and it seems just easier to get around. Many parks (which are not covered in snow) … More Winterizing the Campervan

We chose the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van for a variety of reasons including the reviews we read at the time (early 2015) and the look and feel after going to see one in person. We liked the dimensions, maneuverability, reliability, … More Our van choice
