ecowhale's Rig

Rig Type: Class B

20 feet long

Fully self-contained professionally custom upfitted high roof Sprinter van. Not a name brand, but is sophisticated and better than many name brands as it has a flushing toilet to a holding tank (sanitation chemicals used), optional dry use (US Forest Service approved chemicals in bag), gray water holding tank, sink, 25 gallons of water, stove, 500 watts of solar panels, 270ah AGM battery, 15A and 30A services (shore power not required due to solar and battery isolator), diesel and electric heaters, solar or shore powered air conditioner. No noisy, polluting generator. I help others learn how to install solar, etc. to get off generator. No inside shower, so would usually use a nearby gym (have several memberships). Well maintained. No leaks. Quiet diesel. Well conditioned exterior, so always looks good. Everything is promptly fixed.

Great experience

Ecowhale was a very interesting boondocker. He’s very knowledgeable in electronics and has an amazing set up to be totally self-contained in his van. Be sure to check it out if he stays with you. We would definitely welcome him back again.
