Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Conversion

Summary of Whistler Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Wheelbase 170 Van Conversion:

We put a lot of love into this van, and loved every moment we spent with it. We spent many months building out this Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van that would have modulations for whatever adventure its owners felt like going on. When the Nussbaum’s approached us with an idea over a year ago, they were most excited to retire and get out of the city. Moreover, their adventure van was to be their space for weekend ski or biking trips, for the two of them when the weather was just right.

As a result, we designed an interior that could be expanded to comfortably sleep more people for those group trips. Furthermore, we added a removable ski rack, flip-down TV monitor, a massive power system for their electrical needs, an induction cooktop, and extremely comfortable swivel captain’s chair. Most importantly, we designed and built a removable  customized 3-panel bed platform, which allows for the space to become a bedroom or a spacious living room. Seems like we may have created the ultimate home-away-from-home.
