Rufus: Storyteller Overland Beast MODE 4×4
Get out there in Rufus!
Rufus, a 2022 Storyteller Overland Beast MODE 4×4 is the soulmate to the rugged individualist giving you full access to the outdoors. 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 4×4 series has been to deliver an adventure-ready vehicle that is… Safe, Simple, Fun, Flexible, Rugged, and Ready to Go at all times!
Take road trippin’ to a new level with Intelligent Navigation, active brake assist, backup cameras, and heated seats. Play your favorite tunes using the MBUX Multimedia System with a touchscreen.
Fans of the Beast MODE rave about the rugged features. Rufus is built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4 144″ chassis and features an aluminum extruded roof rack with dual solar panels and an electric awning with LED lights. A tubular side-mounted ladder makes strapping extra gear up top a breeze. Travel off the beaten path in full confidence using the KC Highlights Extreme Lighting Package, Tenzing Brushguard Bumper, Agile Ride Improvement Package, and ARB On-Board Air with Front & Rear Chucks.
Stay off-grid in comfort. Both air conditioning and heat are available to you using the M-Power Extender system. Stay fully charged using the available power outlets and USB plugs throughout. Automotive-graded lithium batteries provide all the power you’ll need, without ever needing a noisy generator.
The van comfortably seats and sleeps three adults (or two adults and two kids), so it is perfect for families or for outings with friends. Two adults sleep comfortably on the platform bed and the bench seat converts into a bed, perfect for one adult or two small kids. Bring along extra gear and make use of the “garage” space under the bed.
The kitchen has all the modern conveniences of a home, including a flip-up sink, refrigerator, and portable electric cooktop stove. There’s even a microwave (relatively rare in most camper vans)!
A cassette toilet can be used inside the van or outside, and the same is true of the shower giving you the freedom to take a hot shower inside or outside after a long day of adventure.
If you want to tell better stories, first you need to make better memories. Rufus is the van to do that in.
For those looking to try before you buy, this Beast MODE will give you a great sense of how the MODE handles and what it feels like (heaven) on the inside.
Take Rufus out into the wild, that’s what he’s built for!
