Now is your chance to own a beautifully handcrafted cabin on wheels. This big blue whale of a van includes all kinds of high end components, meaning it is ready to set off into the sunset. 


For the past year, we have been living a more conventional 9-5 life, and because of this we unfortunately rarely went on any trips with our beloved camper van. So after much deliberation, here we are, looking for that adventurous someone, that is able to appreciate this cozy van more than we are currently able to. Just like Phoebe in Friends, we don't want the spirit of the van to die! It is far too precious to stand around and wait for us. 


We found the big blue lwb 2017 Mercedes Sprinter van at a Sprinter dealership, in the summer of 2020. It was exactly what we had been looking for, so we followed our gut and bought it within 48 hours. The following year we spent  converting it into the van of our dreams. 

We opted to install top end equipment, so that we could live and work comfortably off-grid, throughout all seasons. Our priority was to create a homy, functional space, so we carefully planned the layout and made sure to include all the necessities.

When choosing the vehicle, it was important to us that we had a solid “foundation”. That's why we spent a long time looking for a Mercedes Sprinter that was in prime shape. This van was used by a company that made long distance deliveries. They had made sure to maintain the van well, and although the van has already driven quite a bit, it just keeps going - which is what Sprinter vehicles are famous for. The front and rear brakes have been redone and all service intervals have of course always been maintained and adhered to.


The entire vehicle has been insulated with Armaflex AF and with the Truma gas heater the van stays warm even in the dead of winter. There is a lot of storage space under the bed and in the cupboards. At the front under the bed there is a small pull out seat that can house a camping toilet.

We incooperated:

∙ Truma gas heating 4KW, with integrated water boiler. 10L capacity

∙ Dometic 40L top loading fridge

∙ Dometic gas oven with 2 hobs and grill

∙ 40L gas tank - fill propane directly at the gas station

∙ BF Goodrich All Terrain tires

∙ MaxxAir ceiling fan

∙ Black Dometic windows

∙ Insulated with Armaflex AF 19mm & 22mm

∙ Soundproofing with Reckhorn Alubutyl

∙ 70L fresh water tank & 40L waste water tank

The water tank holds 70L, most of the time this sustained us for up to 7 days. We decided against incorporating a shower in the vanbuild, there were many reasons: we wanted to have more space, avoid uneccesary moisture and not worry about our water usage. Showers at truck stops, gyms and campsites are far more convenient in our opinion.
