Meet “Dorothy” and her faithful sidekick “Toto”. Dorothy is a 2019 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 Diesel engine 170 wheelbase crew van with less than 7,000 miles. She is still under the factory warranty has been equipped with running boards and tow hitch. Toto is a brand new 4 x 8 enclosed cargo trailer with an added 10 gallon road shower with custom shower enclosure. This adventure sprinter combo has been meticulously designed to accommodate our family of five with personal touches to make it feel like a rolling home on wheels. The interior boasts a child size triple bunk bed complete with 4 inch memory foam mattresses and custom fit moisture barrier covers. Beyond the bunks there is a U-shaped dining/lounge area made of 4 inch memory foam +2 inch memory foam gel topper and covered with high end Sunbrella outdoor fabric which repels moisture. The dining/lounge area converts to a bed in the evenings with the help of the butcher block table that drops into place via a telescoping pedestal. In the kitchen you will find an adorable farmhouse sink surrounded by butcher block countertops and ample storage in the upper cabinets as well as lower shelves. The kitchen also has a Ausranvik 37qt portable AC/DC refrigerator (no ice needed!) and butane single burner cooktop that stays snug in its custom storage shelf when not in use. The walls have been covered in Mirth Studio vinyl tiles and painted in colors from Joanna Gaines Magnolia paint line. Our family LOVES books so we designed a bookshelf for book and pantry storage which overlaps the triple bunks. The bunks extend behind the bookshelf for a total of 55 inches of length. The barn door slides over top of the bookshelf when entry to the bathroom is needed which houses a composting toilet and ladies it is true - there is no smell!
There are so many details in this wonderful sprinter conversion it is hard to name them all! We had planned to live in our sprinter while searching for land to buy in Colorado but our plans have changed and so our adorable sprinter is available to the next family, couple, solo traveler who simply wants a cozy weekend warrior van or livable space to travel in.
The exterior design was a tribute to our love of books as a family and was designed and hand painted by a local professional artist. The road signs can be changed and personalized to fit the new owner’s location or interest preference if preferred. Dorothy is equipped to be off grid when necessary but also has shore power capabilities - she often brags about her versatility! We used Havelock wool for insulation (we were planning for Colorado weather!) and cedar planks on the ceiling, headliner shelf and bathroom accent wall. We are in the process of completing some finish trim work and then Dorothy will be ready for her next big adventure!
Noteworthy exterior amenities included a Kampa Rally Air Pro inflatable drive away awning equipped with large windows and curtains and a large RV mat.
