Pan American Stealth Special

Mercedes-Benz - Sprinter
Southern California, CA
Check Availability $175.00 per night

We recently bought a new 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Cargo Van and did the camper conversion ourselves, because we enjoy the type of work and also because we had a good idea of what we wanted. We tried to find a balance between functionality and looks/coziness inside, and are very happy with the results! We used simple and light materials for the cabinetry – to optimize space and total weight – and high-quality electrical products to power everything we needed without shore power from campgrounds. There’s a lot of storage space, seriously, a lot!

In the main area, everything is organized inside drawers, cubbies, and cabinets. Plenty of pantry space, drawers for clothes, toiletries, electronics, cubbies for shoes and bed linen, and there’s still a lot of free space in the back, which we filled with plastic bins for tools, camping and cold weather gear, spares, souvenirs… On the exterior, our main goal was to keep the van looking like a regular service van, with low profile add-ons: a boat window on the roof and solar panels, both can’t be seen by someone walking by on the same level. These and a black out curtain as the partition has helped us sleeping (in the dark) anywhere without being noticed!

We have hot and cold water in the sink and the outdoor shower, a diesel heater that has kept us warm even in temperatures below freezing and is controlled from the bed, an alcohol stove which has saved us the time and hassle of figuring out fittings for propane tanks in different countries, a marine fridge that we use on 12V which always works with minimum power draw. We have been very comfortable during the entire trip, being able to cook inside, standing up, protected from the weather, and having a cozy bed always ready for whenever we are tired. The van has been very reliable. We’ve been taking good care of it and doing regular maintenance, like oil changes, tire rotations, and keeping a watchful eye out. It’s a strong car and very comfortable and safe to drive, with automatic transmission, driver and passenger airbags, cruise control, lane keep, blind spot, and crosswind assist.

Hop in and Go

All GoCamp 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.

Optional Add-ons

    Rental days are based on a 24-hour period. If you pick up at 10 am you are generally expected to return at 10 am. Want to pick up your van in the morning, but drop it off in the evening? Add a half day to your rental.

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

GoCamp's 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 $125,000. Coverage costs $32.50/day and 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).

Mileage

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 two days before your rental starts. The security deposit is returned, less any additional fees, usually no more than 7 days after you return.

  • Cancellation Policy

    You can cancel the vehicle for a full refund, less a 5% service fee, up to 30 days prior to the rental. If you cancel with less than 30 days prior to the rental, you will receive a refund for 50% of the rental fee.

    Cancellations must be made in writing. We are unable to offer refunds for shortened trips if for some reason (e.g. weather, change in schedule) you return the vehicle early. GoCamp reserves the right to cancel a reservation at our discretion if we feel that the rental would not be safe (e.g. a renter shows up intoxicated, a hurricane is expected along the coast and you are determined to go surfing, etc.). If GoCamp cancels the rental you will receive a full refund.
