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.

I will tell you this, the full size Van business is getting bigger and better every month!

I think some of it comes from folks who have been waiting to see what the Dodge and Ford full size vans were going to cost and look like, and a whole bunch of folks have decided the Sprinter Van is the best choice for all around best full size van.

The other reason in my opinion that my Sprinter van business is going through the roof is great word of mouth advertising that my customers share about me. The repeat sales to my commercial accounts, and the many customers that come to me because someone just said, you have to talk with Dave the “Sprinter Guy” to get your new Sprinter van.

Thank you to everyone that has helped me be very successful – to be the number one volume Sprinter sales Manager in Texas!

Check out my current inventory, click the link above that says Current Sprinter Inventory, to see the fantastic selection of Cargo, Crew and Passenger vans I have.

I have about 35 new 2014 Sprinter vans in stock today. The first 2015 models are in production as we speak in Germany right now. First arrivals to be here in late August.

Of course we have had many of you send me your interest in the all new Sprinter 4×4 that will go into production next January. I will be sending out to everyone who inquired so far, an email explaining my 4×4 order policy. I will announce a date that I will start taking deposits to be in line for 4×4 orders that we start placing in November. I want it to be fair for everyone who wants to get one of the first orders in the system.

Finally, I have only two remaining new 2013 Sprinter Cargo vans remaining. They are identicle vans, 2500 170″ wb high roof vans with the V6 turbo diesel engine, automatic transmission, power windows, locks, mirrows, cruise control, air conditioning and a am-fm-cd audio system. This Sprinter van lists for $43,550. The factory will not allow me to post my discounted price publically, but I can send you my special sale price if you send me a request or email. Just use the box below to send me your request to get my sale price on this new 2013 Sprinter van.

Not only will you get a very very attractive price for one of these last 2 Sprinter vans, but you also get at no cost to you, all factory scheduled maintenance for the first 6 years or 60,000 miles. This alone is a savings of over $3500.

Add to this we have a special finance offer through Mercedes-Benz Finance of 1.9% APR for up to 60 months.

It will be pretty hard to beat this deal. Price savings, low cost financing and free scheduled maintenance.

If you have any questions about Sprinter vans, or would like more info about our conversions available, please send me an email to dave@sprinterguy.com or call Dave at 512-930-6158.

I wanted to extend my wishes to everyone to have a fantastic Independence Day on this coming 4th of July. In honor of our country’s birthday, I would like to share with you a music tribute sung by a local Texas songwriter, Johnnie Helm. You can learn more about Johnnie’s music by going to his website http://www.johnniehelm.com.

God Bless this great Country.


Here is one unique way a Sprinter van is used in Southern California.

This conversion was done by Automotive Design and Fabrication, who I have had other Sprinter customers use.

Let’s build a Custom Sprinter van for you – what would you like your Sprinter van to do for you?

Dave, the Sprinter Guy.

This Day in Automotive History
6/23/1902: “Mercedes” registered as a brand name.

Mr Benz and Mr Daimler had been building cars since 1886, independant from one another, and Mr. Daimler built the first motorized truck ever made in 1896, but on this date in 1902 the official name “Mercedes” was registered as a brand name.

This all happened because one of their first “Fleet Customers” in 1901, ordered a fleet of Daimler-Benz vehicles, but requested his daughters name be placed on these cars.

Her name was Mercedes.

Now you know the rest of the story.

Have a great Birthday “Mercedes”

Dave, the Sprinter Guy.

I’m sitting in airport waiting for my return home flight and thought I would pass along some info about the new 4×4 Sprinter van.

First thing, the first orders will go to the factory this November for January production. That should have the first units showing up in late March for Crew and Passenger models, and late April for Cargo vans.

It will available in all 2500 model Cargo, Crew and Passenger models, and 3500 Cargo vans only with the 11,030 GVWR option. Will not be available in Cab Chassis in the beginning.

Will be available in 144″ and 170″ wheelbase and Extended body’s. V6 only with the 5 speed automatic transmission.

4″ in the front and 3″ in the rear increased height to give it a better approach angle.

The system is a Military grade system that is 2 wheel drive with a push button switch to activate the 4×4 system. You must be going under 6 mph to activate.

The power is split 65% rear and 35% front at that point. Our current ESP system will direct power to the wheel with traction automatically.

The other option is to have a High and Low range option that will cut the speed by 42% to be used in off road situations. Again this is activated by a dash button.

No price yet, but their target was to be under $8000 for the option, not sure if that is for the high range only, but expect a difference of a couple thousand to get high/low range feature.

There may be more info that I can pass along, but they are calling my flight. More to come this weekend.


We are here in South Carolina heading to the factory in Ladson tomorrow.

I will post any news after our meetings.

Hope to learn anything about the 2015 Sprinter 4×4
