Is your college or high school team or maybe your favorite professional teams colors fit one of these Sprinter Vans, let me build you a Tailgate Van with one.

And I bet you would have the only dual sliding door Sprinter Tailgate Van anywhere. Yep, these two vans have dual sliding doors so it will be easy to open up both side doors to make the tailgate experience more fun. We can build a big screen TV in the back so when you open the rear doors you have a huge screen to watch the game.



We will have complete WiFi internet and Direct TV satellite service built right in. How cool will that be!


You get to pick the interior trim, how many seats you need, if you want a bathroom or not and the complete custom built conversion. We can also do some creative exterior changes with team logo’s and color combinations to get it exactly how your team’s look is.

About what we expected in a small price increase across the board, except for two models!

Most models have a 1.5% price increase from 2014 to 2015, but the 2500 144″ wheelbase Cargo van only went up $75, and the 144″ wheelbase Passenger Van actually went down $20 this year from the 2014 pricing.

So a 2015 2500 Cargo Van 144″ wheelbase standard low roof, with the 4 cyl twin turbo diesel and 7 speed automatic transmission, power windows, locks, tilt and telescopic wheel, am-fm stereo with bluetooth and USB connection, and front air conditioning will list for $36,990 destination included.

With this you get the proven Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van with fuel economy in the mid 20’s, or higher in some cases.

For 2015, all 2500 models which includes the Crew and Passenger vans, comes with the new Cross Wind Assist as standard equipment. This along with the many other Mercedes exclusive safety features makes our van the safest full size van you can put your family or workers in.

The first 2015’s will be arriving sometime in mid September. As before, to order and have a cargo van delivered here to us takes 4 months. The Crew and Passenger vans come to us in 90 days.

I know you have heard this all before, but I just don’t see this getting any better. You can get a brand new, 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo van for only $________?

Boy I wish I could post the sale price here on my site, but you know, Mercedes-Benz does not allow us to market any of our products online for anything other than the list price.

But, I can tell you this, you will be very pleased with the sale price I can offer to you on one of these remaining new Sprinter Vans.

So on the last ship from Germany, they had about 49 new 2013 2500 170″ wbase Cargo Vans that are now available for us on a first come first served basis. I have one here in stock but I think I have it sold, so it will take me about 5 days to get one of the recent arrivals shipped here to Georgetown Texas.

Besides a great price Mercedes Finance has available with approval, 1.9% APR for up to 60 month terms. 2.6% APR for 72 months is also available.

If you want to know what the Sprinter Guy sale price is on these vans, just fill out the form below and I will send you a price quote. Do not delay, it just won’t get any better than this.


I get asked this question many times from prospects looking to custom build a Sprinter Van into their personal Luxury or RV van.

But truth be told any of our Sprinter models could be excellent vans to begin your custom build. There are some options though that might just make one of these vans YOUR PERFECT SPRINTER.

But first some basics about a Sprinter van for a custom conversion. I would say either of our diesel engines will do a great job for you in a Sprinter conversion. I am a big fan of our 4 cyl twin turbo diesel with the 7 speed automatic transmission. Plenty of power and fantastic fuel economy which is one of the reasons you are considering a Sprinter in the first place.

Windows, some of these have either windows in the sliding side door or rear two doors, and a couple have windows all around. If you want more windows, the conversion shop can add whatever you want in windows. Just remember the factory rear windows are fixed and do not open.

Swivel bucket seats, from the factory are great, but if one of these does not have them we can have them added, no problem.

Some of the following examples have the optional HD Suspension package. This gives you heavier duty front and rear stabilizer bars which help keep your van from leaning in hard turns or when you come off of curbs or driveways. All Sprinters have stabilizer bars, the HD just adds thicker bars.

I have many conversations with customers in regards to rear air conditioning. Some of the vans I have listed below come with the factory roof rear air. This system is great for a rear air while the engine is running, as it has its own compressor on the engine, separate from the front air conditioning. The only negative is the van engine has to be running for you to get rear air with the factory system. Our conversion shops can add rear air units, sometimes mounted on the roof, but sometimes mounted under the rear of the van to give you a cleaner and lower roof. These units, and there are many to choose, can run from the engine or from a separate 12 volt or 110 volt electric system. The electrically operated system allows you to run the rear air conditioning without having to run your vans diesel engine. You will need some type of electric power system which can be additional batteries, roof solar panels, generators or 110 volt shore line power.

Finally in the options department, there are a couple of the following vans that have the factory Variable High Idle package. What this can do for you is when the van is parked, and you wish to run the vans engine to power either your roof air or other electrical items, you can boost the vans idle speed in increments of 50 rpm to increase the performance of the alternator to power these accessories and to recharge your batteries. The normal idle speed for a Sprinter is around 600-700 rpm. In order to get more juice from the alternator you should boost the idle up to 1200 to 1800 rpm.

When it comes to discussions about the size of your Sprinter for your custom conversion, it is a tough decision sometimes as to which van to choose. 2500 or 3500, pretty much I suggest you stay with the 2500 as long as you are not going to have over 3000 lbs of total cargo. That is the conversion, plus your personal stuff as well as fuel and any water in holding tanks. If you are over the 3000 lb weight, then definitely you need to be in the 3500 with the dual rear wheels. With a 3500 and the 11,030 GVWR you can carry about 5000 lbs of cargo. Down side, you have 6 tires to replace instead of 4, you will lose a little fuel economy and you lose a little floor space as the distance between the wheel wells on the floor on the 3500 is 38 inches, compared to 53 inches on the 2500.

On the 144″ wheelbase you have a choice of either the standard low roof or the high roof model. All 170″ wheelbase vans are high roofs. The low roof van is 8 foot high outside height, compared to 9 foot high on the high roof. Add to that any roof mounted air conditioning system that typically will be about 9″ to 10″ additional. On the inside, the low roof gives you 5′ 4″ of inside stand up height compared to 6′ 4″ on the high roof. Usually neither will go into normal size home garage or parking structures. I find I can drive the low roof models through most all of the food drive-throughs, high roofs will normally not fit the drive-throughs if you have a roof air unit.

Then we get into the interior cargo length. a 144″ wheelbase gives you 10 1/2 feet of length from the back of the drivers seat to the rear door. The 170″ wheelbase gives you 14 feet of cargo floor length. If you get the 170 Extended body Sprinter, you get an additional 15 inches of cargo room or almost 15 1/2 feet from the back of the drivers seat to the back doors. You can access on some of the conversion company websites, their floorplans to see how much room it gives you when you start adding seating, toilets, kitchens and sleeping areas. I can also assist you with determining how much room you will need to do what you want with your custom conversion.

I had one of my local Austin Texas customers use Hanvey Engineering to build her Dog Grooming van. Actually it was her third van built by Hanvey and she keeps all of them busy every single day.

But if you are not looking for a Mobile Dog or Cat Grooming van, how about a Mobile Business Office, or Dental Lab. How about a Mobile Imaging or X-Ray van? They do all of these as well.

Or do you have an Expeditor Business and would like your van built with a Sleeper so you don’t need to spend your profit every night sleeping in a motel? Yep, Hanvey builds these as well.

But even if you are not looking for a business solution, you might need a Toy Hauler. Nothing beats a Sprinter Van to haul the bikes, snow mobiles, kayaks or snow boards in, especially with a conversion from Hanvey Engineering.
