Default Sprinter Orphans

Check the latest post for recent vans, older posts will be mostly useless. I'll try to do one of these a week.

For fun I search craigslist nationwide for Sprinter orphans in need of a new home. I figured since I do this a lot I'd post them here for those looking for a Sprinter of their own. I typically try to post vans that are under $10k, but occasionally will post some above that if they seem like they're deals.

If anyone does pursue one of these, make sure to always vet the seller and the van really well, not fun to eagerly buy something you'll regret later. (ask me how I know this.)

I've also been a resource for several people on the hunt, even buying vans on behalf of companies looking for good used ones. I've bought close to a dozen sprinters, flown for more than half of them. feel free to reach out.

The only thing I ask for those who pursue a van on here is that they post and let others know about the experience.

There was another thread started about a month (or two) ago along the same lines ("discovered bargains" kind'a thing)

I can't remember its title (it only had a couple of single-find posts)

Found it: "For Sale Finds" https://sprinter-source.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=68084

Now she's mine :) Thanks @oneofmanysons! This is my second sprinter, sold the first for a (small) profit a couple months ago after fixing it up and adding a camper build-out. This one is 2005 white standard roof 118" with 158k and few options. My last one was loaded compared to this. I got $1000 off for a few problems including black death currently puffing.
I paid $5500. On the ride home I got a high oil level warning as soon as I pulled on to the highway. My mind immediately jumped to overfueling, oil dilution, and resulting cylinder wall damage, all of which I learned about mainly on this forum. Thanks! I went back to the sellers shop and removed a couple quarts. Hopefully they just overfilled it! Oil change a couple hundred miles ago.
