287,000 miles, clean title This fully converted camper van is ready for weekend trips or for full-time living. Complete with a full-size bed, tons of storage, a rooftop solar shower, a cassette toilet, and a complete kitchen with a sink, stove, and refrigerator. This van also has a ton of solar electric power. I purchased this van from the guy who did the build, him & his partner lived in it for 1.5 years after the build was complete & my partner and I have lived in it full time traveling North America for 2.5 years. This is the rare and sought after extra long and high roof T1N. T1N's have the original Mercedes Sprinter 5 cylinder turbo diesel engines. If you read on the Sprinter forums you will learn that they are known to go for a million miles when well taken care of. They are easy to work on, get great gas milage, and can run on the lower grade Diesel in Mexico and South America. You don't have to deal with the infamous problems of the diesel particulate filers, DEF systems, & over computerization of the newer models of Sprinters. We average around 20-25 MPG. This van is large enough for two people to comfortably cohabitate with tons of gear, yet small enough to maneuver through town and park in regular parking spaces. This van is not 4WD, but with 158 inch wheel base and the high clearance you can drive it most anywhere. The main living space: -Very well insulated with 3” of spray foam throughout entire body, walls and ceiling. - Sound proofed with Noico sound deadening on all the walls and floor - Aromatic Eastern Red Cedar paneling on the ceiling and passenger side wall - (2) 100 watt Renogy solar panels - Yeti Goal Zero 1000 Lithium Portable Power Station, with the Yeti Lithium MPPT Solar Charging Optimization Module accessory already installed in it. the kitchen is built around a 2X6 ft.

It is easy to switch in a matter of seconds but requires unscrewing the face plate to access the mechanism The diesel heater is a little finniky, sometimes tricky to get going & will shut off on it’s own There are some minor dings and scratches here and there in the interior and exterior of the van- wear & tear of an older vehicle The rear bumper is slightly dipped on one side, someone tapped us in a parking lot, purely cosmetic There are some spots of rust Several slots on the air vents in the cab have popped off passenger swivel seat gets squeaky while driving when not occupied The flooring & interior cedar paneling has some separation I am so sad to see this van go, but I am excited for the next set of adventures and love it will receive from its new owner!
