L’Etoile du Nord

Customer Van

The Star of the North

L’Etoile du Nord was custom-built in 2020 for a family looking to escape the harsh winter weather of the midwest and hit the road to visit parks, camp in wilderness areas, and seek out some fun and interesting urban areas. With seating for 3 passengers, this van also features dinette seating that slide together to make an extra sleeping area. The galley kitchen is stocked with a cooktop, sink, and refrigerator, and there’s plenty of storage in the rear for bikes and hiking gear.

The power system includes top of the line 2000 Watt Magnum inverter with a built in high-efficiency charger, a single 300Ah Lithuim Ion battery, 130 watts of solar on the roof, and a secondary alternator that directly charges the house batteries while the van’s idle or in motion. With an Espar hydronic diesel heating system that provides warm cabin air as well as hot water, and the 22 gallon water tank, at the push of a button, users are able to take showers with the rear exterior hose and wash dishes in the sink.
