The second-generation Sprinter made its debut in Europe back in 2006 and quickly gained popularity for its multi-purpose use. Professional van and light truck magazine crowned the Sprinter as “Van of The Year” consecutively in 2007 and 2008. The vehicle was favoured by logistics companies such as DHL and e-commerce giant Amazon, who acquired 20,000 units in September 2018 to aid small business partners with their logistics services. However, it’s not just goods and utility that the Sprinter was known for. It also serves as a versatile platform for a leisure-based recreational take on a van. The subject in discussion today is a 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 Ext. Cargo High Roof, and has been completely revamped to be a luxury home on wheels.
This mobile home has a silver exterior coating and maintains the subtle resemblance of an ordinary Sprinter with the exception of some side skirts, fixed running boards, and a large boot on the back that hooks into a trailer hitch used to store cables and hoses. However, upon closer inspection, you are able to observe some of its truly unique features such as a TV antenna for an HD viewing experience, an exterior propane system for the outdoor cooktop, an exterior awning, external plugs for your outdoor accessories, a new hose for water as well as an exterior shower and speakers, in case you wanted to listen to some tunes. The Interior is truly remarkable, stepping on to snap-in wooden flooring, you are welcomed by an entertainment system with DVD and CD player. A few steps ahead awaits a fully functioning kitchen, inclusive of a triple burner stove top, sink, microwave, and refrigerator. The unit also houses a bathroom with a sink, shower, and brand new toilet. The rear is the true epitome of relaxation, with a flat-screen TV as well as a king-sized bed. This sprinter also includes parking sensors and a back-up camera.
The Merc comes equipped with a 3L turbodiesel six-cylinder engine known for its resilience and reliability, controlled by a 5-speed automatic transmission, enabling you to comfortably transport your dream home to wherever you see fit.
