Lil’ Big Bear: Storyteller Overland Classic MODE 4×4
Claw your way to adventure in Lil’ Big Bear!
If ever there was a camper van made to lure you out of hibernation, it’s Lil’ Big Bear. Lil’ Big Bear is a Storyteller Overland Classic MODE adventure van. This van will take you and your adult friends on the adventure of a lifetime. All you have to do is dream big and then set yourself on cruise control. Lil’ Big Bear has got you covered, friend.
One of the hottest new vans to hit the market, Storyteller Overland’s approach throughout the entire process of designing, testing, and manufacturing the MODE series has been to deliver an adventure-ready vehicle that is… Safe, Simple, Fun, Flexible, Rugged, and Ready to Go at all times!
Lil’ Big Bear is built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 144″ chassis. This van is perfect for long weekends or long road trips in any type of weather. Just like any other bear, Lil’ Big Bear is a cold weather beast in the winter with a built-in heater and can cool off with the touch of a button with AC for warmer days. The awning provides shade from the sun or cover from the rain, and the built-in LED lights under the awning mean you can linger outside long after the sun has gone down.
The kitchen has all the modern conveniences of home, including a sink, fridge, and stove. You even get a microwave (relatively rare in most camper vans). Automotive-grade lithium batteries provide all the power you’ll need, without ever needing a noisy generator. The main bed sleeps two adults, and the back bench seat turns into a bed that can sleep one adult.
A cassette toilet can be used inside the van or outside, and the same is true of the shower. You could opt to shower inside the van or outside after a long day of exploring and hot water is yours on demand.
Want to really get away from it all? Add on a tent and two-person sleeping bag and sleep under the stars! Or turn on some tunes via the bluetooth speaker and just relax. Still have some work to do while you’re on the road? Your hosts offer a Weboost cell extender included for free with your rental. The rugged extruded aluminum roof rack and ladder system will be able to hold onto your gear while you prowl down the road to your destination, or you can store things in the “garage” inside the van under the bed.
Get out of your cave and climb into Lil’ Big Bear!
This van is located in Big Bear Lake, CA about 115 miles east of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and about 35 miles northeast of San Bernardino International Airport (SBD).

Alternatively, if you want to pick up in the morning and drop off in the evening, simply select the optional half day add-on when completing your reservation.
Pick Up and Drop Off Time: There is no set pick up and drop off time. You’ll make arrangements suited to your needs and schedule with the van’s owner. You can indicate your preferred pick up and drop off time when completing your reservation; final arrangements will be confirmed with the van’s owner.
