We have the official announcement from MB Sprinter about the 2015 Sprinter 4 Wheel Drive.
Here is the arcticle in todays PR Newswire.
Here is another link to a recent article in MB World online. Please bear in mind, the van in the video is a European model that Sprinter used to do testing and initial market studies. If you look closely you will see an extra pedal for the manual transmission, I do not think we will see a manual transmission model here in the USA. But sure would be cool!

Of course this does create more questions that we will not have answers for until probably May of this year, so stay tuned and if you want an email sent when we get more info, please fill out the form below.
Sale Priced at $49,995, including Certified Pre-Owned Warranty.
I sold this van brand new, and there were issues with the customer not accepting the vehicle as we built it. When it got down to the real bottom line, it was a money issue that caused us to just buy it back from the customer. So what I have is a Pre-Owned 2012 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 144 inch wheelbase high roof cargo van with a Thermo King V300 Super Max rear refrigeration unit in the back, that is being sold with the Mercedes-Benz Certified warranty.
This is a fantastic buy for someone looking for a produce hauler, a cold drink delivery vehicle, a mobile food vendor or a Caterer that needs a vehicle right now and cannot wait the normal 6 weeks to get one built.
It has under 1800 miles, and is being sold with the Mercedes-Benz Certified Warranty program. The factory 3 year or 36,000 mile, whichever comes first warranty ends on 1-31-2016 or at 36,000 miles, but this van has factory warranty until 1-31-2017 or 72,000 miles.
This unit was built with a Thermo King V300 Super Max roof mounted rear air system that runs off of the 12 volt system when the engine is running, but it also has a 110 volt back up system that allows you to plug the unit in to a regular 110 volt outlet to keep the rear cargo area cold. This system can maintain a temp of low 40′s with no problem, and even when you stop to unload, the plastic curtains on the side and rear doors helps to maintains a cold temp, then recovers quickly when you get going again.
The interior has been heavily insulated on the walls and ceiling, and covered with a durable and easy to clean FRP paneling. It has two rows of Taylor Ready folding aluminum shelves on both sides of the van. These shelves individually fold up and out of the way when you need more space inside. These 19 inch wide shelves are able to carry a load of 60 lbs per linear foot. It has ceiling lighting, a vinyl covering over the factory wood floor for easy clean up.
We started with a new 2012 2500 Cargo van with the 144″ wheelbase and the high roof, this gives you about 10 feet of cargo floor from the bulkhead to the back doors, and allows a stand up height of over 6 foot. This van can carry loads of 3000 lbs, minus about 500 lbs for the interior modifications. Here was what the van specs were that we used.
It is ready to go right now, but please hurry as this vehicle will not be here for long. We can offer financing through Mercedes-Benz Finance and out of state purchases are no problem. For more info call Dave at 512-930-6158 or email email@example.com Click on the pics below to enlarge them.
I get asked this question about 10 times each month…and the answer is – There Is No Correct Answer!
In the past four years, I have helped over 200 clients, get the Sprinter van that works best for their conversion. Although there may be some options that I strongly suggest, the size of the van is really dependent upon how you plan to use your Sprinter van. So let’s talk about the right size Sprinter Van.
144 in wheelbase is absolutely the easiest Sprinter van to drive, especially if you drive in city streets. At 19 1/2 feet long bumper to bumper this Sprinter van is about a foot longer than a full size Suburban, and a few inches shorter than a Ford Super Cab pickup truck. And with its 47.6 foot turning diameter, it can turn a circle in tight spaces. The only thing you have to watch out for, is the exterior height.
The standard roof van is 8 feet tall. Add to this about 9 inches for the factory roof air conditioning or any aftermarket roof top A/C, so you are OK to go through the drive thru’s that are 8’10″ or more. This gives you about 65 inches of interior stand up room which is still higher than most other vans of any type. Go with the high roof, add another foot to the outside height, and that much more inside. So with a factory or aftermarket roof A/C on the high roof van, if the drive thru is less than 9’10″, do not attempt to drive through it.
The inside floor space on the 144″ wb is 10 1/2 feet from the back of the drivers seat to the back doors. On the 2500 with single rear wheels (I will cover dual wheels in a little while) you have 53 inches of floor space between the wheel wells, and it is 70 inches from wall to wall at the floor level. As the side walls do start to taper up from about halfway up the sides, the side to side gets a little less near the top of the van.
It’s pretty amazing how much you can put inside the short wheelbase van, whether you are doing a custom passenger van or a full Class “B” RV. But if you need more room, then we go to the 2500 170″ wheelbase van. This van is 22 feet 10 inches long bumper to bumper, and now you have 14 feet of interior cargo length.
All 170″ wb vans are the high roof type, so you have 6’4″ of interior stand up height, more room than most full size RV’s have. One advantage of using this size van, the longer wheelbase will generally give you a better ride. But if this is not enough room inside, we can use a 170″ wb with the Extended body, which will give you 15 1/2 feet of cargo floor length. When you open the side sliding door and look to the back of the van, you will be amazed at how much room there is.
The 170 Extended van is what most of the companies like Airstream or Pleasure Way use in their B class RV conversions. This van is 24 feet long bumper to bumper, so it is longer than a normal parking spot, therefor when you are looking for a spot to park, think about using big parking lots with lots of room.
Up to now I have been referring to our 2500 models, which are single rear wheel vans. These will have a cargo carrying capacity of 2800 to 3000 lbs. Usually plenty enough for most conversions, but if you are building a full RV with water holding tanks or generators you might need to use the 3500 chassis.
The 3500 models are all dual rear wheels and can carry a payload up to 5000 lbs. You can get the same length vans in the 3500 that we have in a 2500. Short wheelbase, 170 wheelbase or Extended. The disadvantage of the 3500, you lose some interior floor space as the distance between the wheel wells drops to 38 inches. Generally you will find the ride a little firmer, translate rougher, on the 3500 because the stiffer springs and heavier duty tires. But once you get a completed RV conversion in a 3500, the weight you added really smooth’s out the ride.
Now I will have customers who tell me they want the 3500 because it will handle better on the road. I’m not so convinced that this is the case. All Sprinter vans come with our ESP Stability control system that makes sure you are in control of your van in case you need to make an emergency maneuver. One thing that I do think is important for the handling of any Sprinter van is to get the Heavy Duty Stabilizer bar option, which I will get in to next.
This is page one of my dissertation of “What Sprinter Van is the BEST for a Conversion”. Part two will added tomorrow, where we go through options and packages for the Sprinter van.

You can have a Sprinter converted to a Luxury Passenger vehicle or a B-Class RV by one of the vendors listed in the link above.
And the best part is, if you allow the Sprinter Guy to assist you in getting your Sprinter van, and we use one of these vendors, I will offer to you SPECIAL PRICING on your new Sprinter Van.

You have the choice from where your Sprinter Van comes from when you have it converted.
If you plan to place an order for a Sprinter van equipped with the color and options that you want, we can have your van dropped shipped directly to the conversion company for the conversion completion.
We will take care of getting everything set up with the conversion shop to get your van in their build schedule. In most cases we will take care of all of the local DMV work to title the converted Sprinter Van.
And we have financing programs from Mercedes-Benz Finance with terms up to 72 months, or if you get an RV conversion with the proper equipment, we can assist you with longer term RV financing.
And did I say Special Pricing, if you don’t contact Dave Graham, the Sprinter Guy before buying or getting your quote on a converted Sprinter, especially if you are dealing directly with a conversion company, you will be greatly disappointed. Just make sure you tell me you want a quote for a Sprinter van to be converted by one of the conversion sources listed HERE.
Since January 2010, I have assisted almost 400 buyers of Sprinter vans, with about half of these converted to RV’s or Family and Luxury passenger vans. You can have confidence that you will get the right van that will be best suited to your conversion needs. Our success is due to having the Sprinter product knowledge and knowing who to go to for upfits or conversions to make your puchase stress-free and enjoyable.
