Default FS: 2006 Passenger 2500 158" Camper Conversion - Wisconsin near Chicago

Life changes fast for some, so here is a chance to own one of the best model Sprinters with lots of recent new parts, maintenance, and a full camper conversion!

A/C works as do all the heat systems (has rear heat exchanger for rear passengers). No smoking, extremely clean. Includes owners manual, 2 keys, and everything else mentioned below.

The only issues is that the previous owner opened one of the rear doors on a pole and put a dent up and down the door. This does not affect the door at all, and is not rusting. I was able to replace the rear windows with no issues. Minor rust under side rails, can be treated.

Lots of costly maintenance and new parts replaced in the last 6 months:
- Bilstein shocks and struts
- Driveshaft from Driveshaft Specialists
- Upper turbo hose
- Metal turbo resonator (delete) pipe
- Newer Mercedes battery
- LED headlight bulbs
- LED light bar in front bumper
- New Espar Hydronic Heater - functions as heater "booster" to help engine warm up on cold days AND can function independent of engine to warm the cabin as an auxiliary heater.
- Back-up camera with large widescreen monitor
- New AT tires
- Fuel filter
- Cabin air filter
- Intake air filter
- Windshield wipers
- Stebel Nautilus horn - much louder than stock
- Pioneer digital media stereo head unit
- Pinoeer 6 ½" Speakers in rear walls
- Rockford Fosgate 4" speakers in front dash
- New Crank pulley / harmonic balancer with new accessory belt
- Front grill with Mercedes logo.
- New windshield with surface rust repair around windshield - Nov 2018

- Oil Change
- Transmission Fluid change with filter - Includes transmission dipstick.
- Rear Differential fluid change

Feedback? I've noticed for others it is quiet here as well. Might be the season.

I’ll chime in here with my opinions. First off, there are some thoughtful and well put together details in your build and without going into those details please know I’m not bashing your work here. Also, it does seem Sprinter sales are taking longer which is probably due to diesel prices on the rise and an overall tightening in disposable cash spending due to the economy finally slowing. Hey, it’s been a good run. Business cycles typically last 10 years, trough to peak, so this tightening should be expected.

Beyond that, here’s my high level quick and dirty 2 item feedback:

1. Your target buyer is really limited to a family of 4-5. This greatly reduces your overall market of potential buyers. Who else is going to need all that sleeping space? Personally, I’d keep the bunk as is and configure the lower sleeping space into a ‘garage’ with some configurable storage. This will open up your market to the adventure buyer and all their gear storage needs; bikes, skis, climbing gear, kite surfing gear, surf gear, etc, etc. also, keep the garage separate from the living area. This allows separation of a wet area and the ability to sell the security of the garage where these folks keep their thousands of dollars of gear.

2. My opinion is folks don’t like the look of plywood and I’ve seen ‘plywood’ builds sit for sometime. There are some other great wood accents which I feel will still help keep that cozy look you were going for. I’d primer and paint the plywood and keep the other solid wood accents.
