We needed a van that we could store bikes, surfboards, skis, and a host of other outdoor gear inside without feeling wedged into the van. I found a fair deal on a used, partially converted 2014 Sprinter 2500 in the SoCal desert and flew into Palm Springs to pick it up on a scorching 113F day.
With only a month before our 24-day Colorado road trip, I slammed the basics into our new sprinter. Windows, panel bed from Overland Sprinters, RB Components headliner shelf and rear door storage, interior bike storage for four bikes, MaxxAir fan, basic walls, temporary cabinet and basic electrical.
For our trip, we only knew our first destination, and date we had to be back. The rest was all made up day by day.
Our first stop was Steamboat Springs where we stealth camped in Town for a couple days before heading out to Buffalo Pass and Rabbit Ears Pass where we dispersed camped, rode bikes, and hiked.
Next was Breckenridge, where we marveled at the leftover mining history on the trail network outside of town.
And that was a wrap for an epic summer road trip.
RadVan did great, and spending 3 weeks living in it solidified our design needs. On to completing my dream build over the course of the winter. Thanks for checking it out.
