Our 2005 Freightliner Sprinter is the ultimate vanlife dream and ready for your adventure. Sprinters have come badged as Freightliner, Dodge, or Mercedes Benz but regardless of badging they are all 100% Mercedes Benz. The inside is so spacious and efficiently designed, and the Diesel engine is a beast. If you know anything about the Sprinter campervans, the 2004-2006 models are the most coveted with the most reliable engines on the market. These diesel vehicles are supposed to run up 500k miles so this van is not even at half it’s life yet. Also, this tank gets around 24 mpg… we’ve driven 8 hours before filling up our tank.
It has a very social set up where 8 people can sit around our lagun swivel table in the back while taking in the beautiful view. When you are ready for bed, you just have to collapse the table down to make the comfy queen sized bed (We just upgraded recently to super comfy 5 inch foam cushions). We also have a legal Freedman fold-up passenger seat in the back with CRS hooks for child seats if needed. The van can seat 4 people legally while driving. We also recently upgraded brand new all terrain tires.

-legal seats for 4 people. Room to sleep 4 as well. We fit 3 on our bed (little bigger than queen), then put a futon on the floor.
-Replaced turbo hose and glow plugs in past few years. Always kept up with services including regular oil and filter changes. Just replaced all of the brake pads as well. We’ve had no major engine issues since owning it.
I currently rent this van out and make over $10k/year, and that is only making it available half of the time (since I like to use it too). You could easily pay off this whole van purchase by renting it out within 3 years if you desired to. This was really a special van to our family of 3, so I’m hoping it ends up in a good home! I have a few rentals still lined up for this van. I am happy to transfer them over to someone or I can cancel them too if that is what you would like.
Mileage: around 155,000 miles
Van is located in Alameda, CA
