Rent our Vanessa, a Mercedes Sprinter RV Sportsmobile


We have listed Vanessa on RVShare. She is located in Annapolis, Maryland. You can contact us through RVshare.

Vanessa is a well-equipped RV with full bath and kitchen and gets 18 mpg. Like most Class-Bs, Vanessa drives and parks like a car. Unlike most Class-Bs, however, Vanessa has a huge 70x82 bed, 6 seatbelts, a 40-gal freshwater tank, 400AH of battery power, a screen door, 6' 3" of headroom, and a diesel furnace and generator that draw from the van fuel tank. Vanessa is great for boondocking for a week, and for one overnight stay there is no major need to hook up at a campground.

Other great features include a huge storage cabinet in back, 4G cell antenna with booster, unlimited Wi-Fi hotspot, 7 cu ft fridge/freezer, plumbing freeze protection, lots of counter space, quick conversion from dinette to bed, convenient TV/radio, and we provide dishes, pots, bottom sheet, and more. Vanessa has a 2 inch receiver hitch that will take a bike rack.

Want to bring along your whole family? With 6 seatbelts you can do this safely and and there is plenty of room to carry tents, sleeping bags, and air mattresses in the back. And lots of room to pack food and beverages.

Driving Vanessa and setting up camp are pretty similar to other RVs with a few exceptions including the diesel furnace and changing from dinette to queen bed. When you come to pick up Vanessa, we will go over everything in detail and answer questions. If you want to be prepared, watch the videos and read the detailed operating instructions PDF files below.
