** FUN FACT #1 **
SUPER STEALTH – Most conversions have obvious solar panels and sporty exterior accessories that scream “someone lives here”. With THIS van, the black solar panel blends in with the black exterior. It looks like a utility van – not a camper. If you want to be able to sleep peacefully anywhere, without getting the β€œdreaded knock” in the middle of the night, you want a van that blends in. With black out curtains between the cab and the living space, I never got the knock in my years living and traveling in this van full time.

** FUN FACT #2 **
This van was originally a satellite van for a radio station in Philadelphia, which is the reason for the insanely low mileage for a 2006 T1N. It still has a whole life ahead, just waiting to stretch out on the open road!!! These vans (specifically the T1N generation 2002 – 2006) will go a minimum of 500,000 to a million miles if you care for it the way I have.

Disclaimer: This was originally a white van that got a cheap black paint job (not by me). The exterior has dings and dents and you can see the radio station logo through the paint when you look at the right angle in the right light. I think it gives it character. If you want a showroom Sprinter, this isn’t it!

** FUN FACT #3 **
I named this van Pepe. Pepe took care of me through 2 countries, 6000 miles, and 2 years of full time blissful van life. πŸ™‚
