2008 Dodge Sprinter Turbo (Mercedes Components)
-170 WB (not-extended)
-213k miles
-3.0L V6 Turbo Diesel Engine. The turbo is amazing and even at full load does not struggle to accelerate on hills/highways, in traffic, etc.
-Automatic transmission with manual if desired (mostly for downshifting or steeper off-road ascents)
-Recently serviced and maintained at Mercedes dealer and local shop that specializes in Sprinter Vans

This was the perfect build for our 4-month tour of the Western US and would be great for anyone looking to spend some time off grid adventuring. The time we spent in this van was the trip of a lifetime and we are excited to pass her on to next great wanderers!

[Condition & Maintenance]
As this is an older vehicle, the main concern a buyer might have is longevity and maintenance costs. Rest assured, this van has been 5-star maintained and we have just recently replaced $15k in critical components to ensure that we are selling a vehicle that will last for many adventures to come. She is running like a dream! There have been 2 owners (the conversion builder and myself) since the conversion from being a commercial vehicle to an adventure-mobile, and we both have taken great care of the vehicle.

Recent maintenance history:
– New Transmission (July 2023)
– New Battery (July 2023)
– New EGR Cooler and EGR Valve to keep emissions low and ensure engine stays clean (July 2023)
– New Turbo controller (computer module) and wiring harness to all turbo sensors (May 2022)
– Full inspection checks to include all systems, brake pads, and tires performed in 2021, 2022, and 2023
– Regular oil/fluid changes every 3k miles
– Maintenance for the last 3 years is well documented and will be provided to serious buyers

-Comfort and maximum storage to include bikes, designed to be completely off-grid for 7 days
-10-in thick Queen Mattress
-Bed Orientation – where both people can exit at the foot of the bed
-His & Her Closets – we each have our own clothing and accessory storage
-Lagun Swivel table – for meals, games, web-surfing
-MaxxAir Fan – for air-in and out-ventilation

Resource Independence
Set up to support being off-grid for about a week, which means features such as:
-25-gallon water tank
-Water Pump + 3 stage water filtration system
-Dometic Fridge/Freezer Combo
-360 W solar (2 Grape Solar 180W panels)
-Goal Zero 1400 Yeti Battery (to operate water pump, interior lights, fridge/freezer, and electronics)

-360W of solar power (2 180W grape solar panels in parallel)
-Goal Zero Yeti 1400 Lithium battery
-130 amp hours of energy (aka 1400 watt hours)…this tank of a battery can easily power a microwave!
-1500 watt inverter
-Wifi connection for battery monitoring and control
-750 W alternator charger (this allows for the battery to stay charged on cloudy days while running the engine)
-Eberspacher 12-V Diesel Heater installed but doesn’t function. I’ve never used it or tried to fix it (hardly ever needed to as it’s very warm in the bed, plus you have the van heat and the battery can support a space heater)

-25 gallon fresh water tank
-Hose connection for easy filling from a normal outdoor faucet
-7- gallon grey water tank
-Electric water pump for on-demand water
-Outdoor shower hose connection in back of van

-Kraus 18”x18”x10” Stainless Steel Sink
-Dometic CFX 75DZ Fridge Freezer
-Gas ONE Propane/Butane Stove
-Magic Chef Countertop Microwave
-48” Kitchen Countertop with Black/Brown Wood Finish

-Slide out tray for 2 bikes (*bikes not included)
-Ample storage space under the bed (eg. 6 Large Home Depot Utility Storage Containers for camping gear, grilling equipment, tools for van construction, and spare toiletries)

Stealth Camping
This van is comfortable on the inside and looks like a regular van a contractor would use from the outside. No visible signs of RV campers from the outside (except for solar panels and fan on top of the van, which aren’t very visible from eye level). Blackout curtain and velcro allow you to have the lights on inside and not have people notice you outside.
