Music inside a Van.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hey there! :-)

I am Ricky and immigrated to the USA from Germany. I am a Film Composer and in deep love for this country and I want to visit every inch of it! Therefore I self converted a cargo van into a mobile studio & home, to be able to work, travel and get inspired.

Would be nice to meet you on my journey!

Skills & Expertise to Share

I learned a ton from converting my own camper van! In particular I spent a lot of time on the insulation and solar system. Would be glad to share my knowledge with you or learn something new!

We already left vancomposer a review. We’d host him again.


August 2021

Very appreciative

Vancomposer needed to come in unexpectedly & a day early, which was fine with us. He was so appreciative, respectful, considerate & quiet. He came & went during the day but was always quiet. We would welcome him back anytime.

Never imagined Redding so warm!

We were delighted to have you visit us. Very sorry about the heat here as we would have liked to visit more. Was impressed with your rig and how you set everything up. No more mice we hope!

Best wishes und Gottes segen!

Amazing Ban!

We hardly knew our guest was here! We did, however, manage to spend some time with him and had an interesting and wide ranging discussion. Definitely a fun visit!

Quiet and very easy to talk to.

Vancomposer made so little fuss that we almost forgot he was there. We had a nice visit for a few minutes before he left. Welcome in back again.

Not enough time

Would have loved more time to visit. Would be welcome back.

Hosted him three times

A pleasure to host. He is polite and quiet, and a very talented guitarist and composer.
His rig has a small footprint; he did all custom interior and solar himself.
He is welcome any time.


February 2019

Awesome as Always

As always, a true treasure! VanComposer is a true gem and wonderful human being. Respectful and courteous, always willing to lend a hand. If he's ever in your area, he should be welcomed with great big open arms. Safe travels, my friend!!

Return visitor

Very much enjoyed having Vancomposer return to the "Shady Pines". A charming guest, we hope to see him again as he travels from Vegas to LA


December 2018

Ricky is always welcome!

Ricky returned for another visit, equally as enjoyable as his prior visit. What I find so impressive is his impeccable solar and electrical installation! Visiting with him was most enjoyable and I look forward to his next visit.


December 2018


Vancomposer was a gracious, attentive, wonderful guest and I hope to have the pleasure of hosting him again in the future. Truly exceptional and the type of nomad we should all aspire to be. Wonderful personality, brilliant artist, and all around great person. Please come back soon.


December 2018

Excellent guest!

Ricky was only able to stay overnight as initially I other guests had reserved Saturday and Sunday, however my original guests changed their plans, so he was able to enjoy a relaxing day here as well. We spent a nice time chatting, getting to know each other while I admired his unique self contained composing studio. His self installed solar system with 800 Watts on his roof is something we all might like to have on our RVs. I heartily recommend Ricky as he’s a perfect guest!

Very Easy Guest

Vancomposer was a very easy guest. He was totally self contained and we hardly knew he was there.
He was very pleasant to chat with and would be welcome back anytime.
