One Man, One Van. Story's from the open road.

Hi everyone! I wanted to make a quick post and introduce myself and my new rig to the Van Life community on this forum

Meet my van "Mombo", a 1997 Dodge one ton 3500 class B motor home. Everything I need to live the Van Life!!


Here are a few pictures from my first trip in the van! Went up to my "secret" little campground in the mountains to ride my dirt bikes around for the weekend. Fantastic trial run in Mombo she ran great and all systems are a go! I spent about two weeks preparing my new van for the first trip and hard work pays off!!

Looking forward to joining the Class B community here

Enjoy the pics!!

Traveled 1500 miles over two weeks up the coast of Cali and into the Sierra Nevada mountains. Spent some time in Reno camping at the casinos and celebrated New Years downtown. After having enough of Reno I traveled up to Lake Tahoe for a few nights. Then back down the 395 camping along the way at beautiful lakes. Since it was cold and snowing I had the places to my self... Well the ones that where open. Anyways The van Mombo ran great and got great MPG! Best way to the the world! Enjoy the pics!

More Picture!

Ps. If someone can tell me how to change the title of my thread I would appreciate it! I don't want to start a new topic for each time I post new pictures.

Thank you!

What title would you suggest? You do not have the ability to change the title name by yourself but it can be changed for you.

If my title could be changed to

"One Man, One Van. Story's from the open road."

That would be great!
