Winnebago has created the Boldt 70KL, an all-seasons approved camper van built on the body of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

Winnebago is a longstanding motorhome maker that has been spearheading #VanLife since before it became a trend on Instagram. Their products range from trailers to vans, and the Boldt 70KL falls under the "Class B" category that consists of four other converted vans, including a Ram ProMaster and Winnebago Revel.

The tiny home on wheels was inspired and named after German explorer and naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. In the spirit of adventure and travel, the van has been optimized for all four seasons with features such as automotive-grade insulation and heated holding tanks, according to its maker.

The Boldt 70KL comes with amenities such as a television, sound system, kitchen, and a full bathroom with a shower, toilet, and mirror.
