Mercedes/Freightliner Sprinter 3500 (duel rear wheels) 4WD 144″ Wheelbase Highroof Camper w/ under 40k miles. This immaculate, bulletproof buildout was the pet project of a race fabrication team (info provided upon request). All interior framing is welded, tubular steel, sided with marine Starboard. The rear bench seat folds down into a larger-than-queen sized bed. A Wabesto, diesel heater provides hot water from a custom, 40 gallon, welded plastic tank to to the marine grade sink and double drain shower using a Flojet pump. Kyocera solar panels feed a Midnight Solar charge controller and two marine grade, gel batteries to give you plenty of 12V power. The spacious roof rack includes sleeping platforms for two. Everything is top notch: Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires (including the two spares), a Viair compressor (located under the front passenger seat), Isotherm refrigerator/freezer, Brunton portable stove, all steel RV Components storage cabinets, marine grade fittings and plumbing (all internal for cold weather), immaculate wiring, three layer insulation, Jensen TV and a powered roof vent. Between the 4WD, 3L Diesel engine, Duratrac tires, high clearance and the custom skid plates, this van will take you where other vans can’t go.
This is not a “vanlife” van. Most buildouts sacrifice durability to provide comfort at a reasonable price with the expectation that the user will hop from campground to campground. Wood framing, stapled veneers and thin plywood simply won’t stand up to rugged, offload use. The welded internal framing in this van connects the floor to the roof to the walls – it actually stiffens and stabilizes the main compartment. There are no rattles or pieces that will work loose. Unlike plywood, the Starboard siding has been proven in marine usage and is temperature stable, waterproof and easy to clean. This van is designed to take you, along with a few friends or family members out for several days of hunting, climbing, fishing or kayaking to locations that would be unobtainable in a Promaster, Transit or 2 wheel drive Sprinter.
PLEASE NOTE: IF THE AD IS STILL UP, THE VAN IS STILL AVAILABLE. The van has no toilet (or black/grey thanks) but the shower is large enough to accommodate certain portable, cassette toilets. The van was recently serviced by Mercedes and given a clean bill of health – there are no issues with this van.
