If you’re a rock climber, you want a vehicle that gets you where you need to go, even if the terrain gets rough. You may be living out of your vehicle at times, so you also want a rig that is roomy and comfortable. We have evaluated several used vehicles that we feel are suitable for rock climbers, and narrowed the choices down to the Volkswagen bus, Toyota Tacoma, Subaru Outback, Mercedes Sprinter, and Chrysler Town and Country.

  • Volkswagen Bus: We love the Volkswagen bus. It’s practically an icon, and it’s been seen everywhere that climbers frequent for more than 50 years. The VW bus offers plenty of clearance and a ton of space, so whether you’re travelling alone or with friends, you’ll have more than enough room for all your climbing gear. They’re fun to customize, too, and with a bit of effort you can have a nice little camper.

  • Toyota Tacoma: We recommend buying a camper top for your Tacoma, so that it can serve as shelter in rugged destinations. It won’t be as comfortable as a true camper, but what you’ll lack in comfort you’ll make up for when it comes to utility. With high clearance, and 4x4, you’ll have access to the most remote climbing destinations.

  • Subaru Outback: The Outback is the ultimate multi-purpose vehicle. It will get you around town, and then out to your climbing destination. If you’re not overly tall, you’ll be able to sleep in it, and the all-wheel drive and superior clearance can get you out into the wilderness.

  • Mercedes Sprinter: This van is the ultimate vehicle for road-trippiing climbers. Resembling a huge box on wheels, it’s built more for comfort than for style. For many climbers, this rig is the “holy grail.” The only downside is that, even used, it’s going to be pricey. If your pockets are a bit deep, though, we definitely recommend this outstanding van.

  • Chrysler Town and Country: With nearly 144 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats down, as well as a roof rack, you’ll be able to carry everything you need to your climbing destination, and you’ll be able to unload it easily when you get there thanks to the power tailgate. Front-wheel drive means you’ll find it fairly easy to handle difficult terrain.

Rock climbers are a breed apart, and not just any vehicle will do.
