I am so glad that I found Caravan Outfitters! The Free Bird fills such an important gap in the US marketplace: Small, economical sleeper vans that have all the bells and whistles which are important (and none of the features that aren’t). The product is so thoughtfully designed – From the layout and accessories to the way that the electrical/battery system is incorporated into the vehicle. It’s perfect for road-trips/camping trips, but also a nice vehicle for driving around town. The 4-cylinder engine provides great gas mileage (I’ve experienced 25+ mpg) - Of course, the trade-off is power/giddyup, but I’ve found it to be sufficient.
Further - The team at Caravan Outfitters are wonderful to work with. I had the pleasure of working with Ewa Zender on my order. Purchasing a vehicle remotely (I live in CO) can be daunting, but she answered all of my questions and was super responsive. Moreover,
she made great efforts to ensure I had a wonderful experience and received the finished product I wanted.
I would highly recommend this product and business. Truly a pleasure!
2/3 of the way through 4,200 miles in our Free Bird. This is simply the best purchase we have ever made, especially after 8 days and counting in it 🙂
We drove the Bird to Lost Dutchman State Park in Arizona. The map on the rear door shows the states we’ve visited since getting the Freebird less than one year ago.
We are very happy with our new Freebird! Rob was very helpful answering our design questions, as was Ewa, who facilitated the sale. We haven’t yet had an opportunity to camp with it, but we are enjoying it as an everyday vehicle. We heartily recommend Ewa as a sales agent and left feeling we had made a new friend. Thank you!
We’re delighted with our new Free Bird campervan from Caravan Outfitters. The Free Bird meets our desire for a campervan that’s fuel efficient and garageable, offers simple, well-designed camping amenities, and functions well for both everyday driving and camping. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Ewa Zender at Campbell Nissan on the purchase. Ewa was friendly, informative, helpful and quick to respond to our questions. We highly recommend Ewa and Caravan Outfitter!
Our new Free Bird took us home by way of Astoria, OR and down the West Coast to Santa Cruz. Its creature comforts make it a real joy to drive. We can't wait to load it up with all our gear and take it for its shakedown camping cruise, exploring out-of-the-way places, state and national parks, and music festivals. Thanks to the Caravan Outfitter crew and especially to Ava for putting out the extra effort to make our buying experience a genuine pleasure.
Brad Petersen and Ewa Zender are great to work with if you want one of these Freebirds. They showed us everything about it. When we came to look at it back in September, we were allowed to test drive and see the potential this van had, but after our first camping session we are so glad we made the decision to purchase it. It's so easy to use and we stayed so warm inside the van during a cold wet Seattle WA camping adventure. If you want to go "vamping" like we did, reach out to Brad or Ewa aka Ava they are awesome!!!!!!!!

We had a GREAT experience with Campbell Nissan and are so looking forward to adventures in our new Free Bird! Greg Skartvedt was super easy to work with and made the whole experience a pleasure from start to finish. The Free Bird was actually our second purchase from Campbell Nissan and we are now loyal customers. Their commitment to low pressure, intelligent, and customer-focused service is a breath of fresh air - and the way they give back to the community is a huge plus. We would recommend them to
anyone looking for a great vehicle at a fair price.

We bought our Freebird two weeks ago - so we haven't used it for any travel adventures yet - and are very happy with the vehicle and the camper upgrades. We can't wait to start travelling. The camper is compact and well designed and the NV200 is getting 27 mpg. Greg at Campbell has been very helpful. We're getting a lot of interest from friends and family.

We picked up our 2019 Freebird yesterday. Alan Kepler was very helpful all along the process. He demonstrated the vehicle, kept us informed every step of the way, and facilitated communications for the purchase. We got the full rundown at pickup. The whole experience was pleasant and easy. We look forward to years of enjoyment of this unique vehicle. Thanks Alan and Campbell Nissan! Go see Alan to get yours!
We drove our Free Bird camper home to Chicago from the dealership in Washington. Eight states, five days and two-thousand miles. It was more of a mission to get home than a leisurely trip, but the van proved to be everything we were looking for. It was a comfortable vehicle to drive and a comfortable camper in which to sleep.
Just had our first trip in the Free Bird van and we LOVE it! There is plenty of storage space, more than I imagined. And one of the best things-the bed is super comfortable. I was concerned at first that it would be too small, but we found that it's just perfect-with the cargo box on top, the awning, it has plenty of room. And this was one of the best car buying experiences I've ever had-the salesman, the owners, we even met the builder of the van-everyone was so enthusiastic and helpful. I can't say enough good things about this van. I feel lucky to have found our way to Caravan Outfitters. Thanks, everyone!
This van merges all the necessities (plus some!) with compact-size, making it perfect for away from the home adventures. We love the fridge, all the storage space, and the head room! My husband and I were grateful for this van x100 on our road-trip up to Banff this past summer. We also agree that it is fun to drive and easy to park (it fits in regular parking spaces, unlike most camping vans). We had people asking us about it all the time, excited to see a vehicle like this one.
People couldn't be nicer and the van is everything I wanted. Let the adventures begin!
The van has a great layout. They really make use of all available space. The bed is really big. You can sit upright in the bed with plenty of headroom. There are a ton of interior lights. You also get a bit of storage under the seats. It is not too extensive but should be enough for a weekend of camping. The awning is fantastic! It is a really cool design. You get coverage on one side completely and even in the back. Looks to be really easy to setup and put away. I set up the bed, then put everything back to seating and it took just a few minutes. Easy. The curtains are a nice touch and the cover for the front and side window have magnet attachments, so it stays in place. The side windows in back open up a bit and have screens so you can get some air flow. Overall the build quality looks really good. The videos will tell you everything you need to know but I can confirm that it looks great in person.

Great product and great people. Can't go wrong with Caravan.
If you're looking for a two person compact camping van, you've found it. The Freebird is a Nissan NV200 cargo van that easily converts to a compact camper. I love all the well thought out features like curtains and reading lights and usb ports- and the huge awning practically assembles itself.
