I guess that's the thing about conversions. Everyone has a different need. What didn't work for you might just work awesome for someone else. What doesn't work for someone else, may just work great for you.

There are no absolutes in designing and building the perfect van conversion. We all need to plan out what we want, design, build and learn.

Best of luck on your next build. Enjoying plying the roads of Mexico in a van that won't choke without ULSD.

Cheers.
A stock 2wd Sprinter van with a Van Compass Lift kit and 30" tires, is more capable than a factory 4x4 sprinter.. Ive seen 4x4 sprinters get stuck on wet grass (Overland Expo), so if you think thats worth an extra $20,000 feel free to pay it.

A factory 4x4 sprinter with fox 2.0 shocks, VC lift, and 35" tires does well off road but set and done you have a $80,000 non built out sprinter. So yes, stock factory 4x4 set up isn't worth the money. But hey if you only stay on the road, and you want that cool 4x4 logo, feel free to spend the extra money.

Getting stuck is usually driver error.

Default Re: 4x4 Sprinter & 4x4 Expedition camper

Does anyone know if that expedition camper sold- the ford 4x4/how do i get in contact with the builder

Ive seen 6+ sprinter builds by this kid trotting around the PNW and they are seriously impressive builds, I want him to build me a 4x4 camper. But don't know how to get in contact with him. Does anyone know his contact info, company name, etc... I saw the builds 4+ months ago so the name they told me has slipped my mind, but the prices that I was told it cost to build didn't (one couple I met at Duthie Trail got quoted $99k for a OutsideVan not including the van, and they had this kid build them one which in my opinion was way nicer than any OV ive seen, but it only cost $34,000 including labor, and he offers a 2 yr warranty.....)

Anything helps guys..

If you're in the PNW, you may want to look into EAV. They have some of the best looking Spriner Conversions I've seen.

Funny, I have never gotten stuck from sugar sand to rocks.

Not too interested in them, I think they've only done 1 or 2 vans as well.. And their builds look just like SyncVans, BenchMark Vehicles, Outside Van, VanLife Customs etc...

I found the Kids company, Its Evo Campers. His Business Instagram isn't really put together yet it seems- along with his website, but his work speaks for itself.. If I do pull the trigger with having him build me a vehicle Ill make a thread here- I'm going to ask him if I can make a video/take pictures of him building the van to make a thread here on what it all has. Possibly offer website building services as well as thats part of my profession, maybe he'll give me a discount.
