Texas, United States of America
Dodge (Mercedes Badged) Sprinter
Long wheel base (was sold under dodge license in the US but is a Mercedes in all aspects mechanically and cosmetically with the exception of the title). All components are Mercedes Benz. Aftermarket grill and badges. Additional aftermarket running boards Body is clean. Dash cam and Back-up Cam installed.
Engine: 2.7 liter inline 5 Diesel (316 CDI) with Only 85k Original Miles, well maintained, runs well.
Will pass inspection and is the last model made before the 2007 diesel EPA standards updated meaning it has none of the problematic particulate filters, diesel emission fluids or regen systems of current diesels. This vehicle is much less problematic and much easier to maintain than those built after 2006. Although older, this is a steal of a vehicle compared to newer models which are not grandfathered in to the old standards especially considering the low mileage.
This actual van has been tested to get 23-25 MPG on the highway.
the entire living quarters of the vehicle have a 1 inch layer of polyurethane spray foam insulation which provides ample heat insulation as well as a vapor barrier and superb sound deadening. This is much better than loose insulation such as fiberglass or wool.
Living space is completely light sealed for use in a city so that nobody can see inside.
Floor is vinyl plank in a dark hardwood style with insulation underneath.
Cedar paneled ceiling stained and treated.
55 Liter Costway high efficiency refrigerator/freezer mounted on a slide out drawer under the countertop.
Two burner propane stove and mini oven combo mounted in the countertop. Propane tank included.
maxfan variable speed and variable direction vent fan with built in rain guard over the kitchen.
7 foot butcher block countertop. Basically the largest counter space you could fit in a van.
Solidly mounted knife set.
Top mounted paper towel roll.
14 inch undermount stainless steel sink with foot pump ( electric pumps add to water waste when not actively being used, which is very important when using limited space and storage). Has 5 gallon fresh and 5 gallon grey water tanks.
Real tile backsplash!
cordless and rechargeable variable speed fan which can clip mount in any position.
Bed frame which can lock in 3 different positions in less than 30 seconds: flat while fully inside the van for sleeping in the city or inclement weather, flat with the head out of the back doors for sleeping outside in nicer weather, and as a front facing futon. 5 inch Memory Foam Queen mattress protector included.
Thetford porta potti chemical toilet across from sink and cleverly out of sight but accessible TP roll.
Comes with electrical diagram and chart of each components usage and wiring gauges.
200 Watts of solar with 200 AH of sealed lead acidic deep cycle battery storage (was sized to fit electrical needs for two full days without good light. Includes Renogy 20A MPPT charge controller which has been programmed for this setup. Fuses and charge controller and battery bank are all hidden from sight in cabinets which are easily accessible.
150 Amp reversible battery isolator ( this automatically charges the battery bank off the alternator when the starter battery is fully charged. The system is totally hands off, is always running when the engine is on, and is perfect for any time the weather is bad for a few days straight and the batteries need a quick recharge. This basically changes your engine into a diesel generator. The last perk is that if the starter battery ever dies you can press one button to reverse the charge direction and charge the starter battery off your solar!)
6 high efficiency recessed lights in the living quarters on a touch screen dimmer switch.
2 undermounted recessed lights over the galley for ambient lighting while cooking.
600 Watt super high efficiency completely silent inverter with 2 plugs and one USB Hookup. Very high end inverter with excellent build quality.
Maxair variable vent fan as mentioned above under kitchen section.
High efficiency refrigerator/freezer as mentioned under kitchen section.
Overhead shelf built into driver compartment with blackout privacy curtains.
Large pantry over kitchen with upward swinging hydraulic doors which stay open and out of the way.
Storage under the bench at the foot of the bed. Lid on hydraulics to keep it open.
Cubbys down driver side wall.
Closet to hang shirts and coats
Hooks for backpacks and a small mirror by the door.
Large amount of gear storage under the bed (4 feet deep by 5.5 feet wide). Slide out dual bike rack fully contained inside the van with ample room for more gear or tool storage.
This is an excellent city dwelling or travel vehicle. It was built with much care and consideration put into it. It would be a steal for someone who wants an aesthetically pleasing and completed off grid capable camper van.
