Aspen is a cute and cozy DIY build out of Canada. It’s a great layout with all of the charm and warmth to make you feel at home. The front wheel drive ProMaster chassis is a great option if you’ll be traveling into the high country where snow might be present. Plus it’s so easy to drive and park, it’ll make you feel comfortable anywhere you take it. Best of all, it’s ready to camp.

Aspen is best used when traveling daily from destination to destination or driving to explore during the day and returning to basecamp at night. Either way, daily driving will keep the batteries charged up and working as it should. If you’re camping for several days in the same spot without moving, its not usually a problem, but thoughtful energy consumptionw will be necessary to keep everything running.
The water heater does pull A LOT of power so thoughtful use is necessary in order to not deplete your battery bank. Turning the water heater on while driving works great as the engine will replenish much of the power the water heater is using, just remember to turn it off after your drive. It’s easiest to use when you have electrical hookups (shore power). When hooked up to shore power, you can run everything without worrying about drawing down the batteries.
