Sprinter Life

A bit more than two years ago I purchased a 2006 Dodge Sprinter van. A shell of a vehicle, over the course of about two weeks in November 2013, Reilly and I roughed in all the major elements; insulation, water tank, plumbing, wiring, kitchen cabinet, bed-frame.

Since then I’ve added several other key items; a swivel base for the passenger seat, a solar panel and auxiliary battery, shelving, ceiling vent/van. There is also a sink with a water pump, a high efficiency fridge, a few LED lights, smoke detector etc.

It is a perpetual work in progress, converting a van to a home. Below are some pictures of the van’s transformation. As I make more improvements, I’ll be sure to add pictures.

If you have any questions about what I’ve done, I welcome you to send them along.  Enjoy!
