Seller's Description

Fully converted Sprinter 3500. 2011, 226k miles. Diesel. Perfect for #vanlife and extended adventures. Ready to go with just your own pillow and pots/pans. This is a unicorn: A strong 3500 diesel engine with the high roof (6'3" sanding height), dually rear wheels, and the short 144 wheel base so you can parallel park downtown. Drives great! See below for more information on each section of the vehicle. Vehicle/Mechanical: 2011, 226k miles. (Low for diesel, which can go to 500k) It has new catalytic converter, regular oil changes every 5k miles, new turbo box, front end rebuild (struts, ball joint, tie rods), fuel rail, fuel line, fuel rail sensor, high pressure fuel pump, fuel filter, new front tires (rear still have plenty of life). There was an emission recall recently which was performed so van now has a 4-year extended warranty on anything emission related (guaranteed to pass emissions or dealer will fix for free)! All work has been done promptly by certified mechanics with OEM parts. I feel this van will last many years to come! Pedal box for extra boost and no turbo lag. Backup camera, rear floodlight, Apple carplay and Sony touchscreen with USB connection. Living conversion: Spray foam insulation. Recessed lighting. Queen size memory foam bed (you sleep long-ways) with 30” retractable base at end to allow for use of two rear seats with seatbelts. Top of mattress to roof is 30"; I'm 5'11" and can sit up in bed. NEW Yeti Goal Zero 1500X power bank connected to 2x Renogy 100w 12v solar panels via fuse panel. Electricity for days even in no sun conditions. Kitchen: Running water 12gal fresh water, 5 gal grey water. Countertop easily fits 2 burner Coleman stove, place a cutting board over extra deep sink for even more work space (pic). Max air fan and louver windows for circulation. Swivel front passenger seat to make "living room". Insulated window coverings for heat and privacy. Deep fridge fits snug between front seats. High end aluminum roof rack with ladder for sunsets and more storage, lockbox up top for spare key. Manual awning with attachable bug netting. Deep shelf over front seats for storage, in addition to cabinets, cargo nets, and wall organizers. Lil Buddy heater via coleman green can. Garage space: Bed frame crossbar 39". 3 bike fork mounts (all adaptors) spaced so I can fit all 3 underneath without lowering seat. Camp (Camplux) shower with custom magnetic curtain that fills space between open doors. Includes propane canister adapter to use small green Coleman canister to fuel hot water. Laveo dry-flush portable toilet, includes 4 refill cartridges (20+ flushes per cartridge). Strong weight bearing shelf on drive side. Considerations: This is a DIY build but done very well. Since owning I've lived for up to 6 weeks at a time happily. The van has 220k miles and has blemishes that you would expect for a vehicle of that age. No dents, dings, or crashes, and has a clean title. This has been an adventure van for camping and bike events, very well maintained. Only reason for sale is I've fallen into an opportunity for a younger version. Only thing to note is there is a 1" small windshield crack in upper passenger corner that extends to edge and isn't fixable due to location so will eventually need to be replaced *if it grows* but has now withstood full winter without growth. Exterior stickers have been fully removed, no residue. *** I understand this is a big commitment: If coming from afar I am willing to do a facetime walk-thru before you commit to travel.
