Project Yonder to launch its Freedom 4X off-grid, go anywhere campervan. This 4×4 Mercedes Sprinter-based luxury van can be seen at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show 2024.

The show will take place at the NEC from 13th to the 18th February and we will be there to report on what we find

Based in Hastings, East Sussex, Project Yonder is exhibiting for the first time ever.  They will launch their new AWD Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based campervan, the Freedom 4X.

Project Yonder was founded just over three years ago by a young couple.  They had just travelled across Europe in van conversion they built themselves after leaving their careers in London.

Charlie and Grace have crafted a beautiful and stylish campervan. It is gas-free and has a composting toilet so that it can be used off-grid.  With all-terrain tyres it can go (almost) anywhere!

The Freedom 4X is based on a long wheelbase Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. It has a 4.1 tonne GVW and body length of 7.0m. Powered by a 190bhp, 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine with a 9-Tronic automatic transmission as standard. It is available with a choice of All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) or RWD.

Exterior: rugged and practical

Standard Rhino off-road wheels with BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres and Dutchvanparts spare wheel carrier ensure its off-road credentials. Plus there is a wide range of accessories available to further enhance the style and practicality of the Freedom 4X for extended off-grid trips. These include: roof racks, cargo boxes, a side ladder, bike rack and spot lights. Plus a Thule Omnistor awning and tent.

Interior: stylish luxury

The interior features the popular layout of an end bedroom, centre kitchen and washroom. It features a front lounge. Bespoke, insulated side pods extend the width of the rear. This is to fit a larger Superior ComfiCel® memory foam mattress (135cm x 204cm). That means taller people can sleep across the van.

Customers have the choice of a wide range of colours for the interior furniture. Project Yonder is happy to accommodate bespoke design tweaks and specifications. 

For convenience, all the interior lighting and appliances, including the diesel-powered Truma D6 E combi heating and hot water system, are controlled by a 10-inch Garmin touchscreen control panel. This has been created especially for Project Yonder.

“We have given up our former careers to follow our passion to create a cool, luxury campervan to take on adventures in any terrain with all the comforts of a beautifully-designed home. We also wanted it to be independent from needing to refill gas bottles or connecting to mains electricity,” said Charlie and Grace, the founders of Project Yonder. “Being able to create a go anywhere, off-grid adventure vehicle for our customers is a dream come true for us – and them,” they added.

Prices start from £156,872 (RWD) or £161,722 (AWD), with a total of only six production slots available for 2024.
