Apollo – Our second Ram Promaster 1500 Conversion Van, this beast is sleek and clean.
Apollo comes as a “dry” camper van, meaning there is no running water or bathroom. However, he comes fully stocked with everything you need to get you started on an Alaska adventure. The only thing you will need to bring is any outdoor gear you are partial too, specific phone/device charging cords, and groceries when you arrive. Setup for 2 people with simplicity in mind, the following list is what comes with Apollo at no extra charge:
- (2) Cans of Bear Spray
- (2) Plates
- (2) Bowls
- (2) Knives
- (2) Pot/Pans
- (2) Pillows
- (2) Camp Chairs
- (1) Small Propane Bottle
- Small Cutting Board
- Coleman Cook Stove
- Tea Kettle and Pour Over Kit
- Foldable Camp Table
- Alaska Road Atlas
- Fishing and Hiking Book
- Bear Safety Handbook
- Recreational State Parking Pass
- Cooking Utensils
- Sheets and Blankets
- Spare Sleeping Bag/Blanket
- Jumper Cables `
- Spare Tire And Changing Tool Kit
- Misc. Amounts of T.P., P.T., Spices, Cooking Oil, Rags, Cleaning Spray, Hand Sanitizer, and Baby Wipes
Also, Apollo is equipped with an auxiliary battery that provides 12v LED lighting in the back, a (4) port USB charging station, and an exhaust fan to keep you cool or help release vapors while cooking. All this is powered by an auxiliary battery that is separated from the main battery!
Two other fun features are the backup camera, and external 120v plug in extension cord. Just in case you find yourself at a campground with power, you can plug in externally, and have power at the outlet inside the van. Bring your laptop if needed!
Apollo is easy to drive and the backup camera provides a nice safety buffer when backing out of those tight spaces. This van gets approx. 17-22 MPG. Not bad for a fully stocked home on wheels.
**This van can be driven on any road except for the Dalton Highway (Road to Deadhorse), and the road from Chitina to Mccarthy. Please take it slow on the gravel**
***Minimum 4 night stay required***
Life has one speed… go!
Loved Alaska Stoke Vans!We had a great experience with Eric and his van! Very comfy, easy to drive, and warm sleeping in the van at night in cold temps! Eric was a great host and responded very quickly when we asked questions via text or messaging app. —Austin
