This 144, 4×4 van is a great buy for anyone looking for a starter adventure van. It is ready to camp the night you buy it – bed platform, power system with lighting, insulation, refrigerator, diesel cabin heater, running water, seating for 2, 3 or 4 – but with room in the budget for the improvements that make sense for you.

The van has 12,xxx miles which may increase slightly as we continue to use it some. It has had its 10k mile service and recently visited the Mercedes dealer for a checkup and all outstanding recall work (mostly software upgrades). The 5-year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty is transferable. The van has been stored in a carport. A clean Colorado title is in hand.

Originally this van was finished with a dinette bed, cushions, beadboard panel kit, thinsulate insulation in the walls, insulated floor, and plumbing and electrical from Vantopia (similar to this, minus the full height pantry). That’s a kit cost of about $14k + $7k in instalation + $6k electrical and plumbing for a $27,000 value.

The dinette bed wasn’t the ideal layout for us – we wanted a raised platform with more room for gea and a bed for our son underneath. We removed the dinette benches and installed a bed platform that reused the dinette pieces. No permanent modifications were made so you can choose to keep the platform, remove the platform for a larger garage space, or restore the dinette arrangement. It would take about a day’s work to switch it back.

Features of the van include (items marked with * can be removed for a discount):

  • 1/2″ EPS insulated birch floor with laminate finish
  • Thinsulate insulated walls with beadboard finish
  • Fantastic fan
  • Factory driver and passenger seat swivels
  • Bug netting with magnetic closure for the slider door
  • RV captain chairs for 3rd and 4th seats behind drivers and passengers seats. Both removable, we used it with 3 seats.

  • Goalzero Yeti 1500x* with fuse block that has additional capacity
  • LED ceiling lights that are dimmable, LED lighting in the “garage”

  • Renogy 100W folding solar panels*
  • 22 gallon fresh water tank with 50 PSI 2.5 GPM Flojet pump, 5 gallon gray water tank under sink
  • Plumbing ready for water heater/shower at back of van
  • Dometic CFX3 55im refrigerator*
  • Headliner shelf with blackout curtain rail. The curtain covers the driver, windshield, and passenger windows to provide privacy and insulation.
  • Weathertech driver and passenger floor mats
  • Lagun table mounted behind driver seat. (Extra Lagun table and mount not yet installed.)
  • Bed platform with room for bikes and other gear underneath
  • Child’s bed platform (could be easily removed)
