Officially on the Waiting List

After years of wishing, I've put a deposit down and placed my order placed for a SMB. It will likely be about this time next year before I take delivery, so I have plenty of time for planning and shaping this out. Ive been doing a fair bit of reading in this site, it very helpful.

After taking delivery I plan to get any kinks worked out and an understanding of my vehicle based on some short/local trips. As the time is right, I'm planning 1 year trip to Mtn Bike, fish (steelhead) and generally visit this fine country we live in. (While it was many years ago, I owned a 1989 VW Westfalia and did some extended 20-30 day trips).

After visiting the Fresno manufacturing facility I ordered: Sprinter, High Roof, 6 cyln D., 4X4, 144" WB.

I recognize space will be tight (based on 144" WB) I have an initial plan design with Brian F. at SMB, which would include;
  • Platform bed in rear with slide-out bike and gear storage underneath
  • Internal shower & cassette toilet
  • D5 Diesel Heat/Hotwater
  • Microwave
  • Propane Stove (2 Burner)
  • 23 Gallon Water Tank
  • Refrigerator - 3CF
  • Exterior Shower - Rear
  • Standard 4D Battery
  • 2 X 100W solar panels
  • Attic Fan
  • Artic Cab Panels
  • Thule Tracks only (Roof)
  • Awning (7X10)
  • Audio Video TBD
Any thoughts folks would like to share about my build would be welcome!


Any pointers to particularly helpful posts, sticky's etc.



And as Brian at SMB said, "Now the hard part. Waiting."
