I bought one of the very first Sprinters brought into the US. In fact it had the goofy 15" wheels, very hard to get tires. I upgraded to 16". It's badged Freightliner, high roof, and 140" wheelbase. I'm not a high mileage guy, only 110K on it in 10 years.

Mostly I use it for my business: hauling lumber back to the shop from the sawmill, and delivering furniture and cabinets to clients. But I also built, pretty early on, a removable camper. Couch slides out into a double bed, running water, three-burner gas stove, small porta-potty, ceiling fan, satellite radio, swiveling passenger seat, side awning. Lots of storage. It takes us about two hours to set it up for a trip. We've taken it to the Smokies, to Labrador, to the Bruce Penninsula and to lots of music festivals. Always gets lots of attention.
