Desert Explorer 

Built in 2021, Armadillo is a Sprinter 144 that packs a lot of punch. With a full stocked kitchen, a comfy upper sleeping area, and removable tables that make a spacious hangout area below, this rig can carry all kinds of gear to just about anywhere. The custom red and white dual wave interior lighting makes the interior is comfortable day and night.

The power system is comprised of 300Ah of lithium ion batteries, a 2000W Magnum inverter, a 130W rooftop solar panel, and a secondary alternator that directly charges these batteries while the engine’s running. That means the rooftop A/C, cooktop, fridge/freezer combo, lights, vent, and outlets can be used off-grid for days. With an Espar diesel heater dedicated to heating the water and a Webasto heater for the cabin, camping in any season is comfortable. And the 20 gallon water tank provides fresh water to the sink and rear exterior shower.

On the exterior you’ll find Backwoods front (including a Warn winch) and rear bumpers and Owl Engineering rear ladder + tire carrier and box carrier, all kinds of RIGID lighting, as well as Outside Van’s safari rack and side Utility ladders.
