Seller's Comments: When this photo was taken, I had driven from CA to Baltimore to help my son with childcare so he could finish his Masters. Because of the solar panels and the generator, I didn’t need to hook up to electricity, so I lived in the RV in the driveway. The propane heater worked great in the snow, and my grandson loved our hideout.  Through the hot summer, the propane generator worked the A/C so quietly that no one noticed.  Also, I drove it everywhere I needed to go like a car because it’s actually a Sprinter truck, only 24’ long and 8’ wide.  Street legal to park.  

I drove across the USA three times round trip from CA by myself.  I went all over Arizona and New Mexico to all the canyons and ruins.  I went north up the I-5 from San Diego to the Canadian border and returned to San Diego down the coast on the 101.  Fabulous trip.  Then, while off-loading at home, with no steering wheel to hold onto, as was my habit, I stupidly fell out of the passenger side of the cab and broke my arm and leg.  A “wow” finish. All good now.

It has 38,000 (+/-) Miles on the Mercedes Turbo Diesel, which has always been serviced by Mercedes anywhere I was, so the mechanical history is on file.  Everything on the rig is new or near-perfect:  tires, batteries, etc. It has a great sat-nav with a Sirius radio antenna and DVD player in front, 2 TVs.

It’s just a perfect thing.  But it wants to belong to someone who wants to live free, off the grid, and have adventures.
