2008 Dodge Sprinter 2500 High Top Long wheel base (170")
All routine maintenance done, clean Carfax as a fleet vehicle, no outstanding mechanical issues
I’ve driven/lived out of other vans and have been extremely impressed by how well the sprinter drives and handles. The mileage is also awesome for such a large vehicle.
This vehicle also has almost twice the living space of my last, short bodied van. Plenty of room for a couple and all their gear in here.
This Sprinter has one previous owner and was kept in great shape for a work vehicle. Minor dings and nicks, but nothing that stands out.
I designed and built out the back personally so it’s a one of a kind cozy cargo van turned log cabin. You learn a thing or two after living in one of these for a few years…
The van was stripped, rust sealed and insulated with high performance 2-part spray foam. This provides maximum insulation (R6.2 per inch), and sound deadening. It’s also fire and moisture resistant, so no worries there. Above the insulation there are furring strips and hand stained, sanded, and sealed Cedar tongue and groove.
The ceiling is fit with 2.5 inch poly-iso insulating board wrapped in linen between the supports. The supports are filled with spray foam insulation and covered in cedar strips. This is my own unique ceiling treatment to maximize head space and maintain a beautiful finish.
There is a top of the line Maxfan in the ceiling with adjustable speed, bi-directional flow, and a cover that keeps our rain and snow (and wont freeze shut!)
One of the highlights of the van. The kitchen is spacious, with 60” of counter length containing a stylish stainless sink, fixtures, and a 2 burner stove with oven.
The sink is fed from a 5 gallon fresh water tank that is easy to fill (spare container in the back) and powered by a 12v on demand pump with a pressure accumulator to allow smooth flow and prevent the motor from fluctuating on and off.
The Camp Chef 2 burner stove/oven runs on the included propane tank.
I store all my food in the large, 3 section pantry over the cab. It’s easy to access while cooking.
A high efficiency 12 V fridge/freezer slides out of the cabinet for easy access
The counter space extends with a pullout section making it very easy to cook with two people at a time.
Tons of storage space can be found in the custom cabinets and drawers.
The bed frame is steel square stock welded into the frame of the van. This is a unique feature that allows the storage space to be undivided and fully versatile, and strong. The bed is a full queen, so plenty of room for two. The mattress is 6 inches of memory foam.
There is a ton of storage under the bed. Two 4 foot locking drawers can easily hold 4x large storage bins or two bikes a piece. The full length slides make loading and unloading a breeze. There is also plenty of room along the sides for packs, climbing gear, ski’s and boots… you name it.
The front of the under-bed space has 5x 14 inch storage cubes and extra room for packs and bins.
The over-the-cab space has shelves for even more storage.
There’s a book shelf, or clothes storage, running along the back of the van over the bed. It doesn’t interfere with sitting up on either side of the bed, still plenty of headroom. There’s a small shelf for spices, kitchen supplies and miscellaneous stuff over the counter, and there’s plenty of space under the sink for garbage and cleaning supplies.
Seriously, this van has tons of storage space while still keeping your headroom free and keeping an open feeling in the van. I’ve always thought large overhead cabinets along the ceiling were claustrophobic and unnecessary.
I built the power system to be flexible and simple. The system has 3x 12v, 100Ah deep cycle batteries charged by the van alternator as well as a 200W solar panel on the roof. It powers the LED lights, USB ports (all nicely mounted in the wall), the fridge, the fan, and an 120V 750W AC alternator. A monitor reports the current battery voltage and power draw of the system.
The van has no decals or stickers, and is as stealth as they come. Being a high top you cant even see the panel and fan on top. The curtains are handmade and lined with blackout material to keep the light in (or out in the morning) and it doesn’t look obvious like reflectix in the windows.
Happy to answer any questions or discuss and serious offers.
