Built using our SAGA cabinetry, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 170 4×4 has the latest off-grid electrical technology and is up-fitted with choice Sprinter overland components from our store. This escape pod shines in a sea of hastily assembled cookie-cutter adventure vans. Don’t believe us? Go check out the latest offerings from industry heavy-hitters like RV behemoth Thor Industries. What you get over there is hard plastics, a crowded interior, and systems relying on already antiquated equipment … and, don’t get us started on the hasty build quality.
We know firsthand how shitty the RV industry is because we up-fit these Sprinter vans and clients have us fix those glaring issues when the mouth breathers at dealer service centers can’t get it right for the third or fourth time. Aside from a small group of manufacturers, for the last four decades, the RV industry is complicit with poor quality and cheap materials. It’s like they never left the malaise era. But, what do you expect when your clienteles idea of camping is parked on a concrete pad at a KOA and a fancy dinner is a night at an all-you-can-eat buffet. This Sprinter van is the antithesis of that.
For holding tanks, there are 20 gallons of fresh, and on the outside, a 22-gallon grey water tank is mounted underneath. Moving up from there, we can take a look at the exterior of this Sprinter Van. The first thing there you might not notice. Go ahead and scroll through a couple of those photos up top and see if you can spot it… we’ll wait. Ok, Give up? What it is, is you won’t find the side of our vans littered with vents, access doors, shore power hook-ups, and warning stickers… what you get here is the sleek Sprinter van exterior un-interrupted.
We complemented the work Mercedes-Benz engineered with a high-quality vinyl wrap that’s not another topographic vanlyfer exterior as played out as the Subaru-dog-couples’ Impreza with a mountain silhouette vinyl decal. Barf. What you get here is our take on the modern urban camo mellowed out a bit — with a hint of mountain vibes… no pine-tree sleeve tats here.
That about wraps up the exterior, overland bolt-on treatment of this Luxury 4×4 Sprinter Van… but, it doesn’t conclude our bashing of the RV market. That’s right, there’s more! …
Traditional RV windows suck. First of all, manufacturers black out their windows to a limo tint. That’s great if you’re holed up at a crappy RV resort with fellow ‘campers’ in the next stall 10ft away. It’s also great if you want to hide out in a dank dark cookie-cutter cave to binge watch 2nd-rate Hollyweird remakes consuming Twinkies and soda. Tinted windows in the outdoors are lame, bring that outdoors in!
