hello everyone, im currently building a 4x4 econoline excursion/expedition vehicle, but while that is being built, i figured i needed something to travel and do my mountain biking, kayaking, etc with... so i bought a sprinter sportsmobile on ebay!

Can't help you with the value but nice ride you found there. I've always dreamed of setting up a Sprinter just like that for motorcycle racing.

I believe I saw this on ebay - it that's the one I thought the price for a Sprinter body and camper was solid. I think when the time comes you'll do fine selling the rig.

Brains a bit cloudy on Sprinters, researched them a while ago. I think the 2006 and older are more sought after due to engine configuration. I can't help on price but I've always liked the dual compartment configuration. The layout of yours is almost ideal for us. You could always have Whitefeather 4x4 it if you want to make it your expo vehicle. I'd love a tin topped pop-top and really like the all metal body of the Sprinters.

Spot on, to me at least. The earlier ones had the legendary inline 5-cylinder diesel that Merc has built forever. My dad had a few diesel wagons with it. Bulletproof, but the boost is turned way up on the Sprinters vs. the older cars so they don't last quite as long IIRC. They got better fuel mileage too. I always got 20 or more in my work Sprinter and that thing would run like a scalded dog.

yep, it was an ebay purchase. i needed somethin since there was no way i was gonna get my econoline done in time, as we are leaving for 3 weeks to go to oregon in september. we are very much looking forward to the trip now, im hoping for no mechanical issues, guess i better educate myself on the maintainance and things to be concerned about keeping an eye on for the sprinter...
