Command Post

Customer Van

Family Adventure Basecamp

Command Post was custom-built in 2020 in a graphite grey 2019 Mercedes-Benz 4WD 170 EXT dually chassis. This van was specifically designed for a family that wanted a premium and enjoyable way to travel around the country. With seating for up to 5 passengers and upper and lower sleeping platforms that accommodate the whole family, we had to be strategic with the layout. It was designed with a majority of the heavy components located and distributed over the rear axle, creating a well-balanced van.

With dual 300Ah Lithium battery, totaling 600Ah, as well as a high amp secondary alternator, this family is able to power appliances off-grid without worry, even the 20,000 BTU aftermarket rooftop A/C and microwave. To heat the van’s 40 gallon water tank, we’ve installed an Espar hydronic heater. This provides warm water to the fully enclosed aluminum shower. The cabin is heated by a Webasto EVO 55 system.

On the exterior, we’ve designed a safari rack that accommodates two cross bars, as well as a ladder on the rear to access the roof.
