Walnut Express: Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
Hit the Express-way to good times
Meet “Walnut Express,” a 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter custom conversion that has it all. Really. This gorgeous rig is ready for you to climb onboard and go. Solar panels, water heater, furnace, sink, two propane burners, microwave, refrigerator, custom stereo, portable toilet, outside shower, LED lights, custom cabinets, black-out window inserts, large roll out canopy, and all of this finished with custom walnut counter tops and fronts. There is a dining table that drops into a queen size bed and a second table that drops into a short twin bed. On the roof you’ll find an additional AC unit for use with shore power or a generator, and there is lots and lots of under seat storage. See? All the things.
Seat configuration: In addition to the driver and passenger seats up front, there is an L-shaped bench behind the driver with lap belts. One passenger sits facing sideways, one passenger sits facing the back of the van. Two infant or booster seats can be secured here with the lap belts. If you have more than 4 passengers, the queen mattress can be removed and converted into a U-shaped bench with lap belts, accommodating up to 6 passengers.
All aboard the Walnut Express! This Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is beautiful and can take you just about anywhere in style and supreme comfort. Walnut Express is a first class trip to good times.

Updated as of March 2020. In light of concerns related to traveling during the novel coronavirus outbreak, we are waiving all cancellation and change fees. Whether you can cancel or change your camper van trip if you need to is something you can take off your worry list. We hope this situation ends soon, and we also hope you are able to get a break from it all in a camper van.
We will revert to our standard cancellation policy at a later time.
