About Das Bus (Our First RV)
We sold Das Bus in June of 2015. Even though we don’t have her anymore, she was such a part of our website and lives that we’re leaving these pages up, just as they were. Here’s hoping she has many more happy miles in store for her new owners!
Well, here’s Das Bus. She’s a 2003 Sprinter that originally started life as a Forest River MB Cruiser. We bought her a few years ago, and we couldn’t have made a better first RV purchase. For starters, she gets 18-22 miles per gallon, fully loaded (depending on how I drive). She’s been solid as a rock (with a couple very notable exceptions…), and we’re counting on many more happy miles with her. And we must be pretty confident about the miles to come, because we totally remodeled her, inside and out. She looks AWESOME now! Probably the best way to check her out is this video tour. It’s a pretty thorough trip through our little RV. Check it out!
In 2012, I completely gutted and rebuilt Das Bus. If you’re an RV nerd, and would appreciate the gory details, you can see that page here. This is probably the single most popular page on our site, so I must have done something right!
