Seller's Description

$135,000 OBO This van is business on the outside, and coziness on the inside. Get warm in the layers of color, wood, and texture, working next to the wood stove on a cool morning by the water. When we couldn't find the van we wanted, building it ourselves is what it took to make it feel like a home. The van is a 2020 Mercedes Sprinter that was built to be a full-time, off grid conversion. The design was meticulously planned and built by us with the intent to live in it year-round, in all climates. We have traveled in it for 6 months and it has worked flawlessly; but unfortunately for us, it has also proven to be too small for our pets and we need to upgrade. For you, this is a lightly used conversion that is turn key, tested, and ready to go! It will provide years of reliability and safety for anyone looking to make this their new adventure home. The van was purchased new in 2021 and is a 2500 Cargo model with 170" wheelbase and the high roof. The 2WD drivetrain is powered by the V6 turbo diesel and both have been impressive off-road and through the Rocky Mountains. It is equipped with the Premium Plus package (big touch screen), 360-degree camera, factory swivel seats, Tenorite metallic paint, and alloy wheels.
