Default 2012 170" Custom Conversion for sale - NorCal - $47999

After a year of adventure, we’re sadly parting ways with our wonderful Sprinter van, Betty White.

I wrote the blurb below for Craigslist so it's probably not necessary for this Sprinter Source audience :) Here it is anyway, though...

Betty was converted from a stock cargo van, and the living area is fully kitted out with wooden drawers, shelving, and countertops. She’s got a queen size bed with a memory foam mattress, convenient charging for all your electronics, and more. There is 6+ft of standing room and plenty of counter space for cooking, as well as a fold-out table that can double as an office setup.

Betty is fully set up to be an off-the-grid #vanlife machine: she’s got 300Ah of house batteries charged from both the sun and the alternator. 4 AC outlets as well as USB plugs can be found throughout the van to charge laptops, phones, etc. With the battery monitor you can keep an eye on your battery bank: without any sunlight we’ve gone 2-4 days off the battery bank alone.

You can find more past photos of Betty on Instagram at @BettyWhiteTheSprinter.

Full-res photos available on dropbox here.

I'm interested in your van but I live on the East Coast. Trying to figure out when I might be able to make it out there.
