The Gray Goose

Customer Van

“The most beautiful thing in the world is, of course, the world itself.” Wallace Stevens

Designed by and built for a retired couple to visit their adult children, The Gray Goose takes flight! Having recently sold their business and are ready to fully embrace retirement, this active couple created their dream van to visit places in their own backyard they’ve yet to explore. Of course, long distance trips to New England and the southeast are on their bucket list as well!

Utilizing limited space on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 144 chassis, The Gray Goose comes equipped with a 30-gallon freshwater tank and grey water tank. These components are essential when using the removable interior aluminum shower pan and curtain to get cleaned up! A 13’ hose is conveniently located under the sink. Keeping sink and shower water warm is an Espar Hydronic Diesel Heating System. A heater blanket was added to the grey water tank to enable usage in below freezing conditions. Flared windows extend sleeping area for maximum rest on a custom mattress for a two-panel bed system.

Powering The Gray Goose from coast to coast are (3) 315Ah Lithium-Ion batteries totaling a MASSIVE 945Ah! To add just a little more juice is a 90W rooftop solar panel, because why not? Additional roof features are roof rack cross bars for a Packasport Series 60 container. An Agile Off-Road RIP Kit was installed alongside an Agile “No Rub” Front Tire Fender to support 18” Black Rhino’s Warlord Grey Gun Metal wheels and all-terrain tires.
