Default German Westfalia visited 49 states

Hello from Düsseldorf, Germany
the city with the world's biggest RV-Show (Caravan Salon) and the city, where the Mercedes Sprinter is built.

We drive a Westfalia James Cook, based on a 2012 Sprinter NCV3. You find more details at DJC5 - A German Westy travels the USA

In 2014 and 2016 we shipped our van to Baltimore and traveled through 49 states. On our 5 and 6 months long trips we relied completely on solar and lithium, as we cannot hook up to shore power (no 230V 50Hz in the states).

Cheers
Peter

Welcome Peter. Sounds like you had a great adventure trading in USA. Sure wish they sold the Westfalia Sprinters here in USA. AS you probably know Airstream imported a Westfalia Sprinter back over a decade ago.

What an awesome adventure!
As a non-resident, what was required in the way of licensing and insurance?
