Wheelie Nelson: Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
Wheels Up in Wheelie Nelson
Did we have you at sunset roof deck? That’s right, there’s a deck on the rooftop of Wheelie Nelson, this 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The rooftop deck is perfect for stargazing or sunset picnics. It is also ideal for additional storage. And we can send you off with a Tepui pop up tent for additional guests!
Wheelie Nelson comes fully equipped with all the modern luxuries of a tiny home or studio apartment. This van is perfect for a couple, solo traveler, and anyone meeting friends at the campsite (they’ll be super impressed when you pull up in Wheelie Nelson). This van is very cozy and roomy, there is plenty of height to stand up (no crouching or bonking your head) and your four-legged friend is very welcome.
This is the perfect van for any season! It is fully insulated and includes a separate rear A/C that runs off of a diesel generator and an external shore power connection for camp sites with electrical hook ups. The generator is mounted under the cab and connected to the main diesel tank – no hassle!
