After six great years of adventures, we are selling our beloved Sprinter Van, affectionately nicknamed “Kurtis.”
- Kurtis is a Mercedes Sprinter with a Long Wheelbase and Extra-High Ceiling. He is 2WD.
- He has 100,432 miles on his odometer.
- He is built out with most of the basic essentials– solar panel, house battery, heater, bed, sink, stove. We had an Engel fridge installed, but we’re opting to keep it for our next build.
- Only the essentials– we never got around to installing cabinets or wood paneling to “finish off” the build, because we opted to go on adventures once we had the basics dialed. Opportunity to complete the custom build exactly to your taste. Kurtis has many miles to go!
Long Wheelbase, Extra-High Ceiling, 2WD — Queen sized bed frame and you can get dressed in the morning without hunching over.
Espar D2 Heater Kit — Installed underneath the passenger seat. Needs yearly maintenance done, but works fine, altitude kit is installed. He’s scheduled for heater maintenance on 11/28 in Truckee if you would like to keep the regular appointment.
Three Panel Bed — Bed kit is 1” square aluminum tubing welded by OverlandSprinters (Eric Wilmanns).
Grape Solar Panel — 180W installed on the roof of the van.
House Battery System — 100 Ah auxiliary battery installed under the hood of the van.
Elevated Vanworks Wiring — Solar charges house battery and battery isolator is installed so alternator can charge house system as well. This work was done by Elevated Vanworks. Option to install an inverter in the electrical box if desired.
Ceiling Fan — The fan is installed above the bed for humidity control and is super effective. We like to run the heater and vent for moisture at the same time. The van is insulated with thinsulate, so we’ve always slept with the vent open. We have been totally comfortable even sleeping in winter conditions. The fan needs the latch to keep it closed replaced, but this shouldn’t be a hard fix.
Trail Kitchens Camp Kitchen + Sink — Hands down, great design. This unit is made in Truckee by Hans Wain, it’s a modular unit where the Everest Camp Chef Stove / kitchen unit can be removed and set up outside for a full outdoor kitchen and prep table. It’s really handy if you want to cook something aromatic, so you can leave the smells outside and not permeating everything you have packed in the van. If you want to cook inside the van, we run the fan.
Mural Artwork by Maxx Moses — As you certainly noticed from the pictures, Kurtis is decked out with an absolute showstopper psychedelic airbrushed mural painted by artist Maxx Moses out of San Diego. This is perhaps our favorite thing about the van.
Clean Slate — Only the essentials have been added. A couple of weekends’ work worth of finishing touches and Kurtis will be Instagram-ready.
