Outdoor Couple DIY Converts The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Into A Camper

Giancarlo Perlas November 23, 2023

Over the years, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has proven itself as a versatile van, and it’s for this reason that it has emerged as one of the favorites when it comes to camper conversions. Recently, a couple constructed their second camper masterpiece out of the vehicle in a span of over eight months with a budget totaling approximately $150,000.

A Mix of Practicality and Elegance

Since the couple, Kyle and Stephanie, are no longer strangers to the intricacies of converting a Sprinter, the interior of the DIY van features a well-thought design combining functionality and comfort. A swiveling rear dinette with a versatile table allows for customizable configurations while an elevator bed descends conveniently as needed, powered by a motorized aluminum frame.

Bamboo cabinets grace the kitchen, featuring a clever drawer-within-a-drawer setup for efficient storage. Meanwhile, the sink equipped with a UV filter caters to the nomadic couple’s need for purified water during their woodland stopovers.

Exquisite Shower and Smart Storage Solutions

The shower of the camper convert impressively rivals those found in traditional homes, which is adorned with white marble tiles and complemented by teak wood slats on a heated aluminum pan. Additionally, the front section is highlighted by a floor-to-ceiling storage unit designed to accommodate the couple’s two feline companions with their own discreet litter box compartment.

This meticulous attention to detail showcases the second-time van builder’s mastery in creating a cohesive, spacious, and luxurious mobile abode.

Year-Round Comfort and Adventurous Additions

Since the couple said that they mostly spend their time outdoors, climate control comes as essential in their adventures. With that, they also installed heated floors and air conditioning for the cabin. Moreover, it is coupled with solar solar-powered generator, boasting 800 watts and paired with 540 amps of batteries, that lets the van run the air conditioning system for four to five hours daily.
