Mercedes Sprinter Motorhome for SALE!

For sale 2005 Mercedes Sprinter 308 2.2 CDI with full camper conversion. Mercedes Sprinters are the workhorse van for most tour bus operators in Chile, Peru and Argentina because of their reliability and economy. The van is amazingly efficient, it's a 2.2l CDI which can eke out up to 1000kms on a 75l tank of diesel when cruising highways. In Chile you'll pay~50,000 Chilean Pesos (~$100 or £50) to fill it up. The van also has good ground clearance ~8inches, and can cope with the majority of unmade roads you'll find in Chile, Bolivia etc. just fine. We also did the carreterra austral (all rainy days) with no problems.

The van was bought and converted in Chile, and is perfect for two people to travel and live in in comfort (even luxury - it's got a wine rack and wood burning stove after all!)  It was designed and built for two people ski touring, although could easily be used as a base for a bigger group with the use of tents etc. The van would also be a great base for kayaking or surfing as it is well insulated, has lots of storage and the wood stove gets lots of wet kit dry quickly.

The kit list is as follows:

- Double burner gas hob with 31 kg gas bottle.
- 70l of water storage
- Electric water pumps providing running water for the sink and cold outdoor shower.
- ample seating in the back can comfortably accomodate 5 people (6 at a squeeze) for great van socials!
