We should have a pop-up camper on our truck in just over a week. Thanks to folks who pointed us in this direction. That Sprinter looks pretty good too. Nice photos.

I miss mine (actually my parents') 1999. She was a great truck. My family says I ruined it on the mountain roads. I'm going with its age.

A van is better for stealth camping in or near a town.

My parents have a Ford Transit van that my dad built a custom bunk in the back with room for storage underneath the bunk. They have done some stealth camping with it. It has tinted windows in the back so it can’t be seen into that well. The only complaints they’ve had is road noise is rather significant and a small gas tank. Oh and the transmission crapping out at 19,000 miles...there was some cheap part that broke and it was rebuilt under warranty.

1992 Isuzu chassis based Safari Trek 2840, chassis #310 from Safari.  4 cylinder 3.9 liter turbo diesel engine.  Gets about 15 mpg depending on wind.  Very slow on hills, drives a bit like an old VW bus, enjoy the view as it passes by.

It had extensive water damage and I mostly gutted and restored the interior, adding an inch of insulation to the walls
