First, we got a new name. SprinterCanDiaries. Joking. But seriously, Outside Magazine Online recently featured us as one of their 24 Favorite Camper Vans! Even though our name was misspelled, we were very excited and thankful to be recognized. We had put a lot of time and effort into designing and building this van and it felt very nice to be featured!
Ahead of heading into Mexico in the next two weeks, we got new tires for the van! After some research and shopping around, we opted to go with the BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO tires 245/75/16. We didn’t upsize the tires. They’re pretty beefy, but road noise isn’t meaningfully louder on these and hopefully our gas mileage won’t go down too much.
One thing we were happy to learn about the storage of the spare is that in order to get it out, you actually have to open the rear doors so stealing the spare tire isn’t all that simple.
