Default RAM Promaster Adventure Van!

See video

This is the ultimate adventure/race van! The van is designed and equipped to haul two full size sport bikes. The concept was to have an electric bed hoist to allow easy access to the bikes in the up position, be able to sleep on the road with the bikes loaded in the mid position and enjoy maximum comfort at the track after bikes are unloaded in the down position. Stealth look has allowed me to camp just about anywhere. The best part is the Van gets 22-23 MPG! Solar will run fridge, led lights and charge phones for a long weekend and most times indefinitely if you park in a sunny spot. I stay all weekend at the race track and never plug my van in (unless of course I need to run the A/C). 9'2" total height, 20'9" long

Here is a list of mods to the van.

HappiJac Electric Bed lift
12' Fiamma Awning (just added a few weeks ago)
Renogy 200w Solar Panel System and Charger
4 Trojan Golf cart batteries with custom under mount battery box (420amp hrs)
60 amp Battery to Batter Charger (charges you up anytime the van is running)
30 Amp External Plug
Norcold Large Fridge/Freezer (electric sealed compressor)
Convection Microwave/oven
2000w MagnaSine Pure Sine Inverter/charger with remote control head and BMK battery monitor
Roof mount 13k A/C
Electric Roof vent
Propane Furnace
Under mounted propane tank
Short Queen Mattress with Foam Sleep Pad
Mult USB ports/120v outlets
Led Lights
Roll in Bed Liner in cargo area and entire floor
Electric Liqueur dispenser
Swivel front seat
Rear Passenger Seat
Sliding door window with vent
Entire van insulated with automotive thinsulate, foam and polyiso board
Class 2 trailer hitch

Electric booze dispenser with 5 bottles hidden in the cabinets. 6500 Series Vertical


I am building a new home and selling the van. Please contact me with questions and I can give much greater detail and send more pictures detailing the build.

$55,000

Thanks!

Located in South East WI.

Well done! Not even an ARV can claim to have such a liquor dispenser!

You know ARV would put one in if asked to.

After reading comments on the Sprinter Forum from a younger group I think this is the kind of van Winnebago should have floated out there for their concept action van. It is well designed. It is missing maybe some kind of bar (counter) or eating surface and maybe a minimal porta pottie mainly for night time number 1.

It does have the bed I've been talking about - adds tremendous flexibility for a variety of pursuits. You could easily add some lockers on the underside of it to boost your storage. You could easily add a flip table like in the K - you probably could just buy the part and screw it in.

I find it interesting that they outfitted it exactly to their needs for the events they pursue. Obviously they bring a lot of food & drinks, hence the large fridge. But they must do all their cooking outside -that equipment must reside in those nice deep cabinets he built. There must be good bathroom and shower facilities at these racing events, as to me that would be a must. I would have also expected vinyl or rubber flooring in the cabin area.

Love the battery box in the floor - we haven't seen that in a Promaster conversion in that local. Usually they are in the back. I'm also not keen on the location of the LP tank. Since they are only heating with it, I might have just gone with a bottle locker in the back area instead - lot more convenient.
