2005 Freightliner (Mercedes) Sprinter Van - USD$12,000 - Santiago, Chile

Our Sprinter van is available for sale in Santiago.

Main benefits: It’s big enough for a couple or small family, and small enough to fit in the narrow streets of colonial towns. You can stand up inside, sit up to four people with seatbelts (five or six without), and boondock in the streets without being too obvious. You can cook inside when it's windy or raining. It also fits nicely into a highcube shipping container once everything is off the roof. And we’ve been averaging 21mpg so far. 

It’s a 2005, 140” wheelbase, high roof Freightliner Sprinter with the economical 5cyl, 2.7L turbo diesel engine. Automatic transmission with 206,000 miles (at the time of posting this ad). The interior is currently set up for a family of four - 2 bunks in the back, sofa/bed, lots of cabinet space, Waeco fridge, manual water pump, sink, 120W solar panel, roof rack, Fantastic Fan, swivel passenger seat, house batteries, battery isolator (also charges while driving), Coleman stove with 5lb propane tank, extra jerry can and more.

The undercarriage is free of rust; the body has some. It used to have a leak above the front seats before we purchased it, but it since has been fixed. The engine runs strong, the transmission shifts smoothly and it’s been a pleasure to drive down the PanAm and backroads.

New rear shocks
New multi function switch
New air, cabin air, diesel and oil filters

New AC compressor and belt
