I joined the Sprinter Van community back in 2015 when I purchased my first 144” Sprinter Van. I had it converted into an awesome mobile tiny home, and traveled from California to Canada in it. During those two years, I learned a lot about how I was using the space. My last Sprinter had a full indoor bathroom, an open aisle all the way to the back doors, and a convertible sofa bed across from the slider door. In some cases, it worked - particularly when I was solo on shorter trips. However, I found myself never using the bathroom, wanting a more dedicated workspace, and needing more indoor storage for camping gear and bikes. In addition, I learned a lot about materials, the importance of building light, and having weight properly balanced across the van.
With the knowledge I gained, I decided to sell my first Sprinter and put what I learned into Sprinter Van #2. This time around, I went longer with a 4x4 170” wheelbase and hired a Portland-based Sprinter Van conversion company called Outside Van.
In this video, I give a full tour of my Outside Van Sprinter Van conversion. I talk about the layout and why I decided to switch things around and share some of the details about what makes this van the perfect combination of form and function.
