Ujoint makes some badass vans.

Looks like it'd be a bitch to load a bike in it, though.

That's not me, but by the looks of it, I don't think he made it up.

Thanks for the link fisherman, cool report.

The custom sprinter is nice:
"Sharing the lodge with us is this crew from Mpumalanga. *That Sprinter sports Landcruiser diffs, engine and gearbox. *It is a self-built machine. *There is also a heavy self-built trailer towed behind the 100 series Landcruiser, over loaded with spares for the Sprinter. *They entertain us for the evening with stories about all the repairs to the equipment they have been doing to get here. *We wish them a pleasant journey and I am so happy that we only have 7 fairly standard bikes to get through the desert."

So a local place rents VW Westfalia vans.
Question I will be going from sea level to approx 8-9k in elevation, buddy said get the stick (if avail) it will be some climb.
I know they don't have the most powerful () engine so I best allow for some more time I guess for the passes. Is it really an issue with these at altitude if they are jetted for lower?


been spending way too much time on sportsmobile.com any other van conversion folks to look at for similar type style?
