Very nice parking lot you chose

Don't want to get those Sprinters any farther off the road than you want to tow them, eh?

My T1N needed a new tranny at 67k miles and threw #1 rod out the block at 123K...tranny had a new shudder too...I felt lucky my harmonic balancer never fell off, never to been seen again...turbo pipe and radio antanae did fall off though...not to mention leaving my house, hit the brakes to stop and the snow slid off the roof, down the winshield ripping off both wipers when it did...guess it never snows in Germany, still cost $400 to wipe my winshield again

Holy Crap!!!
Almost two day to read the whole thing.
The build is amazing and I will use this thread as something to achieve in my own van build.
Thank you so much for sharing all of the details.

Oh, you suck.

TooFast: we were at the Lone Mesa group campground (one of our friends was in a 67 foot rig so we needed a campground that could handle big RVs).

I lost my antenna in the first snow fall too... thanks for the headsup on the windshield wipers.. I was lucky I didn't lose them when I lost the antenna!

Do you think anyone's ever driven a Sprinter on Fins'n'Things?
