Van life, solar power, open-road adventure and sustainable wood ... what more could a fun-seeking millennial want? Maybe a table piled high with avocado toast and an integrated selfie cam with live streaming, but they'll have to figure that out on their own. The rest is provided by Maryland-based Off Grid Adventure Vans, a new conversion shop that turns the Ram Promaster into a fully functioning, two-person motorhome complete with bathroom, Murphy bed and solar system.
No matter how many camper van conversion shops sprout up around the world, each one has its own unique vision. On the vans we've looked at in the past couple months, those visions have included tiny home decor, pull-out beer taps and full expansion modules. Off Grid's vision is all about creating an economical van outfitted sustainably, and in the process, it's created a space that appears quite functional and beautiful.
Like Glampervan over on the other US coast, Off Grid starts off its signature camper conversion with a Ram Promaster, saying it likes to work with the van because it's a full-size front-wheel drive with a reasonable price tag. Off Grid upsizes its camper in comparison to Glampervan, basing its main package on the 159-in (4,039-mm) wheelbase with high roof.
