Meet our 170″ Mercedes Sprinter van conversion, Willy!
There are a lot of van life items in the world today and we’ve tested a bunch of them. Here are the critical few we enjoy most, believe in, and use ourselves in our 170″ EXT Sprinter van conversion.
Our first van was the Sprinter 170 EXT wheelbase is 289 inches bumper to bumper, with 180 inches of interior length from behind the driver’s seat to the back doors. The interior height for the high roof is 6’4″ and the maximum width is 95.5 inches.
Our specific 170″ Mercedes Sprinter van conversion was the 2018 2-wheel drive model in the classic Arctic White color. This van was designed to a true home on wheels with as many home-like amenities as we could possibly including an electric hot water heater, diesel air heater, farm house kitchen sink, shower + shower wet room, propane stove/oven combo, (almost) king size bed and more! This van was truly comfortable to travel in for full-time van life.
While this van was made to be comfortable, it was also equipped with gear to make it the ideal adventure mobile. From our Aluminess ladder to our all terrain tires and our full size garage with enough storage for two bikes + lots more gear, this van was made for the adventure life!
For style we went with a clean, white look with stainless steel cabinet fronts that added a sleek look to the interior. Our floors were a locking vinyl with a hardwood style that tied in with the butcher block kitchen counter look. The shower and kitchen backsplash were white ceramic subway tiles which were both durable and pretty.
This was our first Mercedes Sprinter van conversion which we built out during the summer of 2018 and traveled in full time until we sold it in May 2020. We loved this van and it served us so well across 80,000 miles from Key West to the Arctic Ocean, but we decided to downsize to a smaller 144″ Sprinter van conversion (which you can learn more about HERE).
