And probably a funnel, I'm no spring chicken!
We just pulled into our campsite.
That is what would work best for me. Never more than two of us.
Sprinters have about 12 inches of ground clearance. Transits and Promasters have about 6 inches.
Can you still get in and out of the camper with the motorcycle on the rack?
I have a similar setup, a fourwheelcamper and a versahaul carrier. I found that if I move the crossbar all the way to the rear and the front of bike to the right I can get in and out of the camper. Of course I'm pretty skinny
Thanks for posting that!
I've been going round and round on what to get but simple is better and as I am a few years from retirement, avoiding debt.
I already have the 4RNR.
Kit it out with a awning and a Road Shower type device. Throw kayak rack up top and good to go.
Have a Africa Twin but thinking just keep that as a long hauler for mostly road type trips and get a WR250R and a hitch/rack like you have for the more offroad ADV stuff as weight of bike now becoming an issue (funny how that happens with age).
That will scratch the boondocking/camping itch. Low cost and fits the bill.
Once again, thanks.
That works. My first moto was a ct90 I could lift end at a time onto and off bumper rack
while boat and paddle were on top of car. Setting shuttles river running totally solo. Years of post uniform therapy with that kit.
Its a tight squeeze but not impossible, a front mount hitch with the cooler strapped to that makes pit stop refreshments easier.
You win on the Cool factor. Any pics of the inside. I'm normally a function over form guy, but that is one hip ride.
I'm sorta wandering what kind of fuel economy it gets. What is pushing it, Cat? I don't know what they use in those beast but most Freightliners use a cat which is finally back on the road. For a while they only made equipment engines.
I like the [relative] simplicity and footprint. Even gives you a covered carport for the bike. But, I’ve always balked at the idea of climbing down that ladder at night for a bathroom break. I suppose I could just bring a bottle up there with me...
The milage is probably pretty good given the amount of cubic feet of space. I would guess 8mpg.
I know someone who has a Freightliner M2 and gets low double digits, like 10 to 12.
A few pages back you will find some interior pics. Enjoy!

It has a Detroit Diesel in the middle of the bus. It's a 6-71. Very good access all around the engine. A large floor hatch inside and doors on the side of the bus to access everything else. I average 10 mpg. It's slow up hills but will last longer than me probably. It's already 47 years old. 5 speed stick too!
It is sorta cool driving a piece of history. California crushed most of these buses because of emissions. There are still a few in private hands and value is creeping up. I enjoy driving it a lot. They built them on a class 8 truck chassis so they are capable of 1 million miles plus! The engine too if looked after properly. Mine probably has 350 to 450k miles on it. Mostly aluminum body too!
plastic coffee container works great , for both of us, even has a handle.
