Detailed Information
Vehicle Description

2010 Mercedes Sprinter 316 CDI LWB. 6 Speed Manual Gearbox with 190,000 miles on the clock. The van has given us around 30MPG on our extended European trips.

MOT Valid until 29 August 2024!

Extra features:
– Reversing camera
– Hook deadlocks on both rear doors for added security
– Apple car play / android auto / touch screen entertainment system
– Ladder attached to the rear

Recent work includes:
– Brand new rear tyres, front tyres have a lot of tread remaining
– Brand new rear brake pads, discs, callipers & handbrake shoes
– Front abs sensors, brake pads, discs & callipers are only 4 months old (5,000 miles)
– Front right bearing / hub replaced
– New exhaust manifold, gasket & turbo gasket
– Full service 5,000 miles ago. We have owned the van for just over a year and we have given it a full service twice (in only 16,000 miles).

Bad bits:
– Suffers with the Sprinter curse of rust. This rust has been mostly treated, although it is comint through in a few spots. In general the bodywork is not in the greatest condeition, and could do with a bit of TLC to get back to prime condition.
– Minor power steering leak. Doesn’t affect the power steering at all, just means you have to top up more regularly (once every 1-2 months).

Conversion Description

This van is very well equipped for full time living or long European trips. In our experience the electrical setup is completely self sufficient, even in the winter! In over a year of ownership we have never had to rely on 240v hook up!

About the conversion:
– DIY conversion completed to a high standard; fully insulated and with a great layout for long trips.
– Lots of storage both overhead, above the cab, under the seats & bed! You won’t be able to fill all the space!
– Dedicated dinette seating
– Fixed ‘small double’ bed
– 2 burner gas hob with an oven
– 60L fridge running only on 12v (no gas) with a removable freezer compartment
– Shower in a dedicated bathroom area, with a portable chemical toilet
– Belfast sink and extending swivel tap. With this you can hose off any sand before juming into the living space.
– 110L fresh water tank in the garage of the van and a 70L underslung grey water tank
– Diesel heater, with diesel container in the garage (perfect for the winter)
– 50cm skylight above the bed
– Fan (with rain sensor) above the oven to increase airflow or get rid of cooking smells!
– Campingaz 907 gas locker in the garage (lasts us between 1-2 months while living full time)
– A good amount of garage space for any upgrades wanted or outdoor gear!
– Clever emergency escape hatch hidden behind a picture frame to the cab, hook deadlocks also fitted to the rear for extra security
