Hello – My name is Zach Reinitz – I have built this Camper from the ground up over the last 10 months and am happy to announce it is ready for its new owner. This is my 4th build and most extensive build to date. The Van was designed around extreme exploration and ultimate comfort. We acquired a low mileage 4x4 E350 passenger van in Northern California where we proceeded to drive the van back to our shop/home in Reno and begin its conversion. The Van was stripped down to its core – Completely re–engineered/Cad Designed/ and professionally rebuilt into the camper you see today.
The Van is standard length but packs a ton of features into a compact and powerful package -Instagram Handle - @AutarkyEV
