Default Re: Is Advanced-RV now offering the shorter 2500 Sprinter 144" wheelbase?

Advanced RV is going all in now with the short 144" WB Sprinter. They have at least five 4x4s underway. So far they have been different depending on the owner's desires. This is our proposal:



We are trying to pack into a short van all amenities not found in other short vans such as a NovaKool 6.8 CF 2 door refrigerator/freezer, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, larger kitchen galley, bigger than normal wet bath 30" x 38", storage for two bicycles inside and at least 800ah of lithium ion batteries. We also anticipate still large fresh, grey and black water tanks. In continuing to name my ARV vans after famous 20th Century architects, I've dubbed this one Mies after Mies van der Rohe who famously quoted "Less is more." The idea of a shorter van (5 foot shorter) is a challenge and change of pace.

Recently Advanced RV posted this video about the design team working on the short van.

That's the first Advanced-RV that I've seen with a rear bath. Can't wait to see her's in the gallery!

Congratulations on moving forward. Does ARV have any info on availability of the 2019 Sprinters?

Looking forward to see the details of your build.

David - are you planning to get the 2L, 4-cylinder gasoline engine in your new Sprinter? I was just looking up details of that M274 engine and discovered they are made in Tennessee. The M274 is widely used in the Mercedes and Nissan-Infiniti line. Looks like a sweet power plant.

I got the dreaded 10 starts message for DEF only I added DEF but it didn’t reset. What’s worse it happened at Michign’s UP over 500 miles from home. Gas is looking better. :)
