Currently in Moab. drove through 2 snow storms on the way here yesterday... Sun and heat has been missing for a week now. Glad to have our rolling house and diesel heater with us.
Also ran into one of our customers by chance. Nice to see these units being out exloring!

The time has come that we need to build a new truck for the 2020 season. Sadly our Sprinter has to find a new home. This truck is one of the most reliable, fuel efficient and fun vehicles I have ever owned. We imported the Sprinter in 2017 into Canada from Germany. In it's former life it was employed through a municipality to maintain hydro dams. Always maintained at dealerships. I can assure you that everything in and on the truck works as new. No oil leaks or funny noises. 5 Speed standard transmission, true 4x4 and low range. You actually hear the mechanics working when you press the pneumatic buttons. With it's 5 seats and low operating cost, I call it the perfect family adventure van. Can also flip the rear bench up to store your bikes or other gear inside!
Just in case you are wondering about parts availability: I already pre purchased the most difficult items (clutch, bearings, thermostat, belts, idlers....) everything else like oil filters and such are most times in stock at your local mercedes dealer! This especially is very impressive as this engine, transmission and 4x4 system has never been sold in North America.
In any case, please be aware that you can NOT legally import this truck into the USA! It's only 17 years old.

I'm in no rush selling it.... But will need room in our driveway at some point to start the new project. Please PM with questions.

Thank you for your kind words!
The next camper will feature a bunch of new design elements and proper video documentation.

My apologies for not posting more pictures! Here you go. Took these ones this morning. Truck is still in use and therefore not spotless clean.... It will also go in the shop next week for a new windshield, all fluid change, tire rotation, new serpentine belt and pully.

Pictures of the drivers cab. We fitted new seat covers as our little one spilled his water bottle on both seats... They now have water stains... Tires are 225/75-16 Motomaster AT/3 with a 5 year warranty (3 years remaining) against wear and flats. This warranty is valid at any Canadian Tire store in Canada. In the last picture you see the fuel tank for the Planar diesel heater. You can either run it on diesel OR kerosene.
I should also mention that we replaced the alternator, rear shocks, rear leaf springs last year.
List of included spares: (aprox. value)
  • LUK clutch 400$
  • LUK two mass flywheel $500
  • Water pump and seals $300
  • Power steering pump $500
  • Wheel bearings $250
  • Belts and pullies $300
  • Clutch master cylinder $350
  • Misc. seals and other bearings $400

There are of course two repair manuals included that also cover the manual transmission and 4x4 system.

Everything is working as brand new.

Asking CAD75.000 but are open to reasonable offers.
