It’s been a while since most of us have traveled, for obvious reasons, and the itch to get out on the open road is hitting us harder than ever before. Waking up, throwing open the doors to a custom camper van to take in Rocky Mountain vistas or Yosemite’s great climbing walls seems like exactly what we all need after a year indoors.

Of course, that is an incredibly romantic view of van life. In all honesty most people love hot showers, regular toilets and sitting on their porch too much to put big bucks into upgrading a Sprinter or Econoline. But there’s a way to have an amazing van life without the amazing budget, because Omaze is giving a van away.

Win a Sprinter Van with an Eco-friendly $80,000 Vansmith Conversion – Enter at Omaze

Take one look at this Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 camper van conversion and you know that it is special. Complete with an $80,000 conversion from Vansmith, it features a 3.0L V6 turbodiesel that puts out 325 lb-ft of torque and has a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, a 210W solar power system so you don’t have to worry about where you’ll charge your iPhone or drone at night, a Mazzair roof fan, an 85-liter fridge, a 5-foot-long kitchen, full-sized bed and an LED lighting system. It also includes Vansmith’s Green Package, which, according to Omaze, includes, “wool insulation, blue-stained pine ceiling, bamboo countertop, carbon offset package with 72,000 lbs of carbon offsets,” and a green logo.

The rest, you can customize yourself, to fit your lifestyle. Choose from a rear-mounted bike rack, upgraded suspension for tooling around Moab (or wherever you like to roam), throw some all-terrain rubber on there … the options are nearly endless, and it adds up to an awesome camper van worth $142,000.

The donations themselves benefit mikeroweWORKS. According to Omaze, “mikeroweWORKS is on a mission to help close the skills gap by challenging the stigmas and stereotypes that discourage people from pursuing the millions of available jobs. Through their Work Ethic Scholarship Program, they encourage people to learn a useful skill, and they reward those who demonstrate that they’ll work their butts off. Your donation will help mikeroweWORKS Foundation continue their work to redefine the definition of a good education and a good job, and to help close the skills gap.”
