Those are nice, glad to see they are still using them, it's been a while since I posted photos of them here. I still think that could be a bitchin' motorhome when they sell them.

It also has high roof. I think all Cab chassis and crew cabs were low roof.

That's cause they cut off the Sprinter windshield and replaced it with custom work. That would make a fine conversion vehicle. Probably gets the same 18 MPG my 2005 Sprinter RV does. Or whatever per kilo the metric system uses as that's down under.

Personally, I am waiting for one of those convertible NCV3 tour buses to hit the used market. That would be a fun conversion to RV.

Curious, how many centimeters per liter or inches to the gallon that beast consumes?

Possibly. But such creations do exist and the wheel/tyre setup is relatively common in Iceland.
