2005 Diesel 140” Sprinter Conversion with only 124k miles!
The conversion is ready to enjoy and use as is but has space for your own additions. The main frame of the build out is made of steel; cabinets, benches, bed, etc were built around the frame. There are many cosmetic touch-ups that could be made to make the interior look really nice (in other words: it could use some love). It’s been used to haul lumber a few times, so everything isn’t as pristine as it could be. The open spaces are ready for shelves, sink, or whatever you need. I had gotten to a certain point of the build where it was everything (really more) than I needed, but ready to customize for a new owner

“She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts...”
The van has been tagged many times, to the point where I’ve had to just start painting over people’s lovely artwork instead of wiping off which has given the van a bit of “character”. Typical rust on the van’s body for the Midwest, but frame is obviously in great shape with Mercedes’ magical rust-prevention. Windshield has had a crack in it forever, not growing, but worth mentioning. Wiper fluid shooters have been knocked off so they’re kind of just zip-tied on now, the clips to put them on right are cheap but the zip-ties work. The rear step support and bumper have been lose since I’ve owned it (requires a $120 piece of metal, easy repair but again never bothered me). The side and rear doors are custom locked shut from the inside so needs to be opened from the interior because the key tumblers have been drilled out (another theft attempt, thieves still couldn’t get in though regardless because of bolted doors). Bolt locks take 10 seconds to unlock, I typically just lock them whenever I’m in the city. The front ball-joints are a little squeaky, doesn’t bother me but I think the replacements are only about $25 if it’s an issue. I never use the AC but assume it could probably use a recharge. All of these things I could have repaired for you if you’d like, but I figure most of us either don’t really care about these things or would want to fix ourselves for a bit of a better deal.
I’ve had a ton of great adventures with this van, it’s going to be hard to see this go. I am kind of being forced to downsize with my new home/parking spot; downsizing to an NV200 which I’ve already purchased so pricing the Sprinter to sell FAST. I am willing to sell to anybody/anywhere, the price is $11,500 OBO as-is (all serious buyers' offers will be considered). Let me know what questions you have! Thanks for looking!
