Well, we did try to make that work. However, virtually all of the Class B Sprinter conversions were made out of the longer wheelbase (21.5 foot LOA) dual wheel 3500 model, which we felt was too big for our use.MFieldVI said:In retrospect might it have been any more cost effective to start with an already built class B sprinter and then do the suspension etc.?
You absolutely should talk to Owen Connaughton at Creative Mobile Interiors. They can, in fact, do whatever work you need, whether it's a few small modifications or the turnkey truck.MFieldVI said:Why I ask is I am on the East considering just such an undertaking. The idea of one stop shopping at CMI is really appealing as long as they really can handle all aspects.
I'll see if I can figure it where it came from from my records. Can't find it right now. It's a lot like the Hannibal and Wedco ones, but different in a couple of ways.SOCALFJ said:Mike, where'd the Jerry can holder come from? Dang that red needs a spray of rattle can.. thats genuine amazon brushed painted red there!
Well, Dave, heck if I can find where my can carrier came from. I looked in my records and couldn't find the purchase, and then I looked through the web from all the suppliers I used and they don't have one quite like it. I suppose it could have come from one of the now-defunct companies like OffRoad Recovery or Browne and Ware, or maybe the design just got changed slightly in the last three+ years.SOCALFJ said:Mike, where'd the Jerry can holder come from?
Sorry I missed the question. PM replied to, but for the rest of the audience . . .Mike, how has your sprinter been off-road? I've been "waiting" for a 4x4 sprinter for a while now and maybe it's time to get moving on a 2wd one. I'm mostly traveling around the deserts of the southwest. Not looking to go on real rock crawling trails, but do want to have access to reasonable jeep roads. Thanks!
Thanks, Tom, for the compliment. Much appreciated coming from you.WOw. Well thought out and well executed, Mike. Fun read.
Not as such. It's only recently that I've become confident that the whole thing was going to work out well. Now I'm really enthusiastic.Is there a link to your Earthroamer mod?
