Hey everyone, I've been working on a sprinter van set up on and off for about 6 months. The Sprinter started life as a work van for someone in my company. Last year we closed the business and I decided to keep the van for myself. It is an '07 and has around 60k miles. The primary goal of the van is to use for weekend camping trips(hauling a KLR on the back or sometimes carrying a Harley inside the van. As it has worked out I am taking my kids to AK for the summer and we intend to head out in about 2 months time. Let me start off by stating that I know there are a lot of people on here and other boards that have taken a great amount of time and detail to make a solid RV conversion. Unfortunately I don't have the skill, funds or time to do a full on RV conversion. I'm wanting to make it somewhat comfortable for weekend camping use and hauling m/c's when/if needed. First step last fall was putting horse stall mats in as the floor and lined down both sides and in the center with e-track so I can move things around as needed. I started out by putting a pioneer head unit in with iPod connector and some decent speakers in the doors. The next step was to take a mix of foam spray insulation, foam sheeting, and reflectix to insulate the interior of the van. For the most part every nook and cranny is filled with spray foam then a sheet of insulation was used for a second layer. This REALLY made the van a lot quieter going down the road. These two pictures show the first layer of spray foam before the foam board was installed. Here is another pic of the process of insulation installation. Overall view of the van. On the outside it still appears to be a cargo van with the front windows tinted. I tore out the stock headliner and put a shelf above the front cabin space Here is the cab: I had some extra unistrut so I installed a unistrut rack with a plywood decking on top for the platform of the bed. I went to a local futon store and purchased a queen mattress. I over spent what I intended on the futon but considering I'm going to be sleeping in it for the summer I figure it was worth the $$$$ Here is a real sorry picture of the rear to show the storage space under the bed. I'll get some better pics as this build keeps going on. All of the wall insulation was covered with some indoor/outdoor carpet(I'll try to get a couple pics of the finished walls) Last fall I picked up the heaviest duty hitch carrier I could find. We also put a class 4 hitch on the van. Not that it matters but here is a pic of the KLR that will be on a hitch carrier. Still debating on modifying the carrier I have or what but I need to find a way to transport the generator that I also need to carry on the van. We will also be carrying my hammock tents and a conventional tent for when we need or have to do something outside of the van. I intend on sleeping in my hammock most nights that I can find a place to hang it. Next up is to figure out how to mount a generator on the back of the van with the hitch hauler or actually physically mount it on one of the rear doors(which I am really considering). The generator is a Honda eu2000i quiet suitcase type generator. At this point I am considering the purchase of a small portable a/c unit to put in the van for use in the hot summer evenings(not that there will really be any of these in AK of all places). I have a Mr Heater portable propane powered heater that we can use when needed for heat but I highly doubt it will be needed. Other items I still have to work out: - some interior wiring for the generator to power some cab items(laptops, chargers etc) - set up an inverter and battery set up for 12v functions(inverter is here just haven't done it yet) - I have purchased a portable hot water heater and shower kit. I plan on it being used when boondock camping(places with no facilities). Water is going to be transported in a 5 gallon container and it will be the source for our water. We have water filters if needed to get water from a river, creek or lake. I've opted to not install any real plumbing because I am wanting to keep it as simple as possible.
