The van is located in Austin, TX. I’m happy to deliver this van throughout the US for the right buyer.
I’m selling this beauty to build and sell vans full-time. This Mercedes Sprinter conversion is fully loaded with a bed, shower, toilet, full kitchen, marine-grade fridge, electrical system, water system, propane system, diesel heater, insulation for four seasons, and LOTS of storage space.
This build is tested for full-time van life. I lived in this with my girlfriend for 1.5 months. My dad and brother are architectural engineers who helped with the design and parts of the build.
Many vans come with TONS of exterior features. This van purposely has LESS external features like roof racks, roof decks, etc. Because the outside looks similar to a working van, you’ll never have to pay for camping. You can easily park on city streets, parking lots, and road pull-offs for stealth camping.
The price is not set in stone. I’m happy to come to a number that seems fair for both of us.
The vehicle is in great mechanical condition. I have a buyer’s checklist from Klingemann Car Care at 5635 US-290, Austin, TX 78735. You can call them at +1512892373seven and they can walk through what they found. I will share the checklist document with anyone who asks.
Year – 2012
Make – Mercedes
Model – Sprinter 170” wheelbase, extended, high roof, 3500
Height of van supports up to 6’3” person
3500 means the van supports up to 10,000 lbs vs 8,500 lbs with the 2500. These vans have a lot of weight with the build, so the extra 1,500 lbs goes a long way
Extended means an additional 17” of length. This makes a large bed and more counter space possible
Mileage – 180k – Sprinter vans can easily get up to 400k miles (do your research). Full synthetic oil changes every 7k miles.
Oil change and new tires on April 20, 2021.
