back of camper van

Shaun and Alison

After years of road tripping in Subaru Outbacks and attaching all our gear to the roof and hitch rack we decided it was time to find a vehicle we could haul gear inside of that also had a bed. A friend had posted a link to Wayfarer Vans on Facebook and during my internet search for a van conversion I knew that the Walter kit for the RAM ProMaster 136 high roof top would be the perfect fit for our adventures.

I contacted Ian at Wayfarer several times before pulling the trigger with all kinds of questions and he was always quick to respond. Ian and I worked with the local RAM dealership and got the process started and within 2 months I was in my new Wayfarer Van.

I flew into Denver and was shuttled down to Colorado Springs. Upon arrival I signed a few documents, jumped into the van and drove it off the lot. Since I had a bed and kitchen, a quick stop at the market for food, another stop at REI for a fuel canister and I would have all I would need for my journey home to north Idaho.

After a couple nights of comfy camping in the van and over 1500 miles through 5 states (CO, UT, ID, OR, WA) I finally made it home from a trip that I will not soon forget. The fun continued, that weekend my wife and I shopped like newlyweds not for a new apartment/home but for van stuff. Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Macy’s, North 40 Outfitters and Black Sheep Sporting Goods… We should have had a gift registry 🙂

We have taken our van on a few microadventures and love having the option to stop wherever we want to hike, bike, SUP or eat in a restaurant without having to worry about all our gear. We absolutely love our van and cannot thank the Wayfarer team enough… Adventure awaits!
