New project in the works Sprinter Van Conversion

Picked up a really nice 2010 Mercedes 3500 Sprinter Cargo Van yesterday. I have been researching these vans for over a year. Price, fuel mileage, cost, reliability and ability to convert to camping and using as a home base are all pluses with these vans. There is a treasure trove of information online about these vans and I have researched and studied what others have done.

 

I have a rough idea on my layout but will remain flexible on what works and doesn't and will adjust accordingly. I have three areas that are a must. 1. Must have queen size bed. 2. Large enough storage under bed area (I'll call that area the garage) for two road bikes, two sets of scuba gear, tanks and metal detecting gear. 3. A wet closet for wet suits. I'll incorporate plenty of other storage areas, counter space with room for a refrigerator. 

I plan on wiring for solar power as well as shore power. Powered roof vent, roof rack and back up camera. Micheal and I got started today on stripping the panels off the walls. Up next, we will insulate walls, ceiling and floor. Install roof vent and start the wiring. Stay tuned for more post on this project...
