FOLLOW THE NORTH STAR AND IF YOU LISTEN CLOSE YOU MAY HEAR LYRA’S SIREN SONG
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.)

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.

You can reschedule your reservation without penalty. You can cancel the vehicle for a full refund, less a 5% service fee, up to 14 days prior to the rental. If you cancel less than 14 days prior to the rental, you will receive a refund for 50% of the rental fee. Cancellations must be made in writing.
