Lyra: Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Mercedes-Benz - Sprinter
Portland, OR
Check Availability $190.00 per night


In mid-summer if you gaze into the night sky you can often find Lyra, the harp, and listen to her sweet music (or, is that the neighbors next to you at the campground?) Our Lyra is 2013 Mercedes-Benz modular Sprinter camper conversion.

Lyra includes a Dometic 12V cooler which runs off a secondary auxiliary battery 24/7, a small pump sink, dishes & cookware, and a butane stove (for cooking under the stars). There are also privacy curtains and bug nets to keep you cool in warmer weather, and a thermostat controlled diesel powered heater for colder months.

Updates underway for 2021: A pedestal table and swiveling front seats, so you can gather around the table for a meal or card game. New electrical installations include a ceiling fan (to clear the air when cooking inside), dimmable LED lighting, and an inverter for 120v outlet. Beautiful bamboo ceiling, too!

This van seats up to eight (!) and sleeps four. Bedding for four is included. Add a tent and sleeping bags to your reservation if you need extra sleeping space for all your passengers. In addition to the permanent queen bed, there is a bench seat for 3 behind the 2 front seats. There is approximately (6′ or so) between the bench seat and the bed. Plenty of space to fill with everything (and everyone) you need to make your adventuring dreams come to life!

(This van is generally prepped for four passengers. Lyra may be converted to carry up to 8 passengers and sleep up to 4, however the sink must be removed for any passengers greater than 5. Please note that for greater than 5 passengers extra charges ($150) will apply as the conversion is a time consuming task.)

Hop in and Go

All vans are considered “road trip ready.” Whether you are flying in from out of town or looking to explore your own backyard, all you really need to do is stop for groceries before hitting the road. All cookware and tableware is included, as is bedding and a wide array of camping gear. You’ll be sent a detailed list of all the items included in the van before your trip so you can plan accordingly. Select any of the optional add-ons listed below when completing your reservation.

Book Your Trip

Pick Up and Drop Off

Rentals are Calculated on a 24-hour Basis: The rental period is generally considered to be 24 hours. If you pick up the van at 10 am, you’ll be expected to return it around 10 am. Most van owners can accommodate requests for a few extra hours at $20/hour. 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.



Insurance coverage includes $1 million in liability to the renter, $1 million in liability to the van owner, and comp and collision coverage up to $200,000. For most rentals, coverage costs $34.50/day. For our premium vans, coverage costs $44.50/day. In both instances, insurance is required as part of the rental.

Roadside Assistance

We make 24-hour roadside assistance available for $15 a day. Coverage includes unlimited: towing, flat tire assistance, emergency fluids delivery, battery boost, and a mobile mechanic. Many van owners require 24-hour roadside assistance as part of the rental. Where coverage is mandatory, you must either purchase our policy, or show proof of comparable coverage (such as AAA PLUS or PREMIER).


125 miles per day is included in every rental. Additional miles are charged at 35 cents per mile. For example, on a four-night rental, you will have 500 free miles. If you traveled 600 miles, you would pay an additional $35 at the end of your trip.

Security Deposit

You’ll pay a security deposit of $1,000 - $1500 (vehicle dependent) two days before your rental starts. The security deposit is returned, less any additional fees, usually no more than 7 days after you return.
