Camping, Cooking, and Overlanding in Baja Mexico – Living The Van Life

Living The Van Life **SWAG** – CLICK HERE –

Down here in Baja Mexico, we found ourselves a gnarly good trail to test the off road capabilities of the LTVL Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 2500. We ended up on a trail known by the locals as “Franks Tractor Trail” which was a section of the 2021 Score Baja 1000 off road race. We attempted this overland route and ended up at Bahía de Los Ángeles for an evening of camping, cooking and van life on the quiet beaches of Baja.
