REVEL-MODE Van Rally (Moab, UT Sept. 29-Oct. 1)
This annual event takes place in the world capital of off-roading, Moab. And, naturally, we’ll have the chance to get our hands (and our tires) dirty.
The Moab Overland Experience hosts many events aimed at off-roading and outdoor sporting enthusiasts. The REVEL-MODE Van Rally gives van lovers the chance to put their rigs to the test on an off-road driving course. Of course, we can do this anywhere, but there’s a camaraderie in being able to cheer each other on and confidence in knowing you aren’t alone if you get stuck.
The expo will include classes on various outdoor subjects – some specifically related to vans, including Mercedes-Benz van inspection points and which tires are the best for your van – others more generic such as wilderness survival, landscape photography, solo travel, overland apps, and more.
When you’re not testing your skills in the off-roading course or sitting in on a class, you can enjoy walking through the vendor trade show, where dozens of the latest outdoor and van culture products will be demoed. There will also be entertainment, raffles, and a wide variety of food options.
This event is also relatively new – the first one took place in 2019 in Durango, Colorado. We realized immediately that we needed to do this every year.
While this is a van rally, you’ll be welcome even if you don’t have a van. But we can almost guarantee you’ll wish you had one by the end. To register and find out more, visit revelvanrally.com.
We recognize these two events occur less than a week apart, with 265 miles between them. Attending both might test your mettle as a van enthusiast. Luckily, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a workshop about working on the road. You may also have access to a road-worthy vehicle to get you from Grantsville to Moab. We’d love to see you at one or the other or both.
Look for the Mercedes-Benz Van Center – Warner Display When You Get There
We think we’re some of the biggest Utah van enthusiasts on the roads, but we are also proud to be partners in making these events happen. We love being a part of the growing community discovering and embracing the van life.
Part of our enthusiasm for these events is the opportunity to support one of the most exciting ways to use what we think are the best vans on the market. Mercedes-Benz vans are well known for their excellent engineering and brilliant use of space. What better platform could there be for refitting into the perfect off-the-grid vehicle? In fact, we keep vans already built out as camper vans on our lot.
What makes Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans so perfect for the nomadic lifestyle?
- 4×4 Sprinters are ideal for off-roading.
- Extra internal height converts well to living space.
- There’s a growing infrastructure of support for refitting these vans.
- World-renowned engineering means you can feel confident you won’t get stranded.
We will have plenty of time to geek out about the possibilities of refitting our vans at the events. We hope to see you there. You’re always welcome to come into our permanent location in West Valley City, UT to kick the tires and test drive one yourself. Check out our website to learn more and see what we have available.
