Let Recon Scope Out Your Next Adventure

Recon is a 2021 Storyteller Overland Stealth Mode 4×4. Perfect for gaining intel on all the best outdoor adventures, with Recon you and your family and friends will collect stories to tell for years to come!

When you’re not playing hard, relax to some tunes on the portable Furrion bluetooth speaker. The front seats swivel so you can gather around the swing-arm dinette table for a meal or card game and enjoy yourself! You’re on vacay! There’s even an exterior fold-down table so you can take the fun outside.

Need a kitchen to prep those meals in? Be a gourmet chef with your stainless steel sink, dual voltage refrigerator/freezer, 700W microwave, and 1500W portable induction cooktop. Don’t skimp on groceries because you can also rent our 101-quart ARB fridge/freezer combo and stay off grid for weeks or invite the whole family out to the campsite.

Clean up is a breeze with the diesel-fired water heating system. The indoor Halo shower will get you squeaky clean after you play hard all day. There’s even an outside shower! With hot water circulation on board, you’ll never have to worry about your shower being like your high school relationship (hot, cold, then hot again)! Recon even has a portable toilet (4.75 gal capacity).

When night falls, you’ll slumber peacefully in the Dreamweaver bed (56″ x 79″ max), with high density foam cushions that sleeps two. The kids will love the Groove Lounge two-seater (34″W X 72″L) that converts into a sleeping space that fits one adult or two kids. You could also put down a sleeping pad and sleeping bag under the fixed bed and have the kids make their own little cave below the Dreamweaver bed or bring an extra friend. Magnetic shades cover the windows for privacy and added warmth.

You’ll be comfortable no matter the weather with this perfect all season van. With the 13.5k BTU air conditioner with ceiling exhaust fan and diesel-fired heating system you can take a trip to the beach or head up to the snowy mountains and be perfectly continent all year.

The Stealth MODE offers the latest in technology, including an MBUX multimedia system with 10.25 inch touchscreen, intelligent navigation and smartphone wireless charging. Recon can zip through city streets and safely maneuver winding mountain roads with the help of traffic active lane keeping, brake blind spot and distance assist. Recon can park in a regular parking spot easily with or without the 360-degree parking assist. When you are cruising down the highway, lane departure assist and blind spot monitoring gives you extra eyes on the road. With all of the safety features of a Mercedes-Benz, there’s no need to worry about driving a big van!

The cabin is powered by an M-power 12kWh energy storage system with 3600W inverter, two 45W solar panels, six 110V outlets, six USB ports, and three 12V power ports. All that to say, you won’t have to worry about your power when you’re off on your adventure, there’s plenty! Recon charges itself back up as you drive around or you can also choose to hook up to shore power at a campsite to have unlimited power.

Scout out your next adventure in Recon! If you want to tell better stories, first you need to make better memories. This is the van to do that in.

For those looking to try before you buy, this Stealth MODE will give you a great sense of how the MODE handles on and off the road and what it feels like (heaven) on the inside.

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 $37.50/day. For our premium vans, coverage costs $47.50/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: 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, including 1) RV towing and 2) towing distance of 100+ miles.

Mileage

125 miles per day is included in every rental. Additional miles are charged 35 - 50 cents per mile depending on the vehicle. For example, on a four-night rental, you will have 500 free miles. If you traveled 600 miles, at 35 cents a mile 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.
