Re: My new Sprinter

Very nice...I like the sink and stove by the back of the sliding door. Can you use it from the outside the van?

Happy travels...

Re: My new Sprinter


Love the ladder hanging off your PH bed. Where did you get it? Is it collapsible? Did you attach 2nd handle or have SMB do it for you.

Re: My new Sprinter

Spenard: I have considered some sort of trailer but have tried to avoid crossing that line. I looked at the Malone trailer and it looks like something that would work should I cave and buy a trailer to keep from falling off the roof. I see that there are 78 inch bars available for the MAlone. I like the idea of vertical storage. I have also looked at some of the trailers in Canoe and Kayak Mag. We have a trailer used to haul a Laser sailboat that I might be able to make work if I decide to go that way. When I have the canoe and rocket box on top the milage is reduced by 1.5 to 2 mpg. The wind has not affected handling much as far as I can tell. Alaska scheduled for summer 2014.

Ultrasport12: The stove and sink are too high to be used easily from the outside and the stove cover opens towards the outside blocking access to it. There is also a table that folds down outside in the sliding doorway that is one of the most used features. I do wish that I had installed a propane fixture to cook outside with a portable stove as well as the one inside.

Rionapo: The ladder to the penthouse was installed by SMB Texas and does not collapse. I store it behind the gaucho cushion and it works well. All attachments by SMB.

How much room underneath does it take? Is there a link for information on this?

Thanks,

Re: My new Sprinter

Thanks for the picks and posts. Months later and possibly years we can learn from you.
