Tumbleweed

Customer Van

Mobile Basecamp

Built by an energetic couple who knew they wanted to share their love for the outdoors with their two youngsters and family dog, Tumbleweed rolls from backcountry to coast and everywhere in-between with ease!

We’re so impressed with the creative way everyone has room to sleep and lounge. A three-panel bed with custom mattress and memory foam topper are perfect for the adults. The forward panel has three positions, secured via rosettes, a bed position (horizontal) a sofa back position (110 degrees), and a vertical position. Custom dinettes on the driver and passenger sides convert to a second lounge or bed by utilizing one drop in table. Additionally, a two-panel bed sits behind the bottom sofa seat with its own custom mattress. A 30-gallon freshwater system supplies the exterior shower and kitchen sink with water. Plenty of overhead cabinetry, an overhead cab, exoskeleton cabinets, and rear stuff sacks offer storage options for everyone.

Tumblweed’s Stone Grey exterior provides this Sprinter 170 a low-profile aesthetic. However, the eyes are quickly drawn to the rear driver side combination ladder and spare tire carrier that’s nestled next to the passenger side utilitarian bike carrier. Both additions come from our friends at Owl Vans. An Agile Off-Road Ride Improvement Package, Agile “No Rub” Front Tire Fender, upgraded 17” Black Rhino Warlord wheels, and BFGoodrich K02 tires create peace of mind when tackling various terrain and weather conditions. Keeping Tumbleweed the mobile basecamp it is are 630Ah of lithium-ion batteries! A secondary Wakespeed alternator works in tandem with the batteries while 130W rooftop solar panels bring in even more energy.
