Mercedes Benz Sprinter 4 x 4 Motorhome

After searching for a suitable (and affordable) 4 X 4 Motorhome, we decided that we would have to build our own as the only options that we found were way out of our budget. Gippsland Mercedes Benz did a stellar deal for us on the Mercedes Sprinter 519. We had a few extras fitted :- Driver comfort pack that includes rotating front seats with armrests, Towing pack and 100 litre fuel tank, along with the all important 4WD system.

We then fitted it out with Toilet/Shower cubicle, diesel stove connected to the main fuel tank, a complete 12V system that has 400 AH deep cycle lithium batteries for storage, 400W of solar panels coupled to Smart Solar Regulator, a 1500W Pure Sine Wave Inverter, and a 10 litre 12V HWS. Additionally, the hot water system is connected to an automatic heat exchanger to heat the water via the vehicle’s cooling system to 65ºC. A Projecta Lithium Smart Charger is automatically activated when the vehicle is connected to 240V AC Mains Power. The vehicle is fitted with an external shower, spot lights on every door, wind-out awning with LED lighting, external table, rear 2 bike carrier, TV antenna, reversing cameras, 80 CH UHF Radio, Bullbar, 7” CREE Driving lights, fog lights and an electronic burglar alarm. A thermostatically controlled 12V cooling fan in the ceiling and a wall mounted 12V fan with timer alleviates the need for AC. It is also fitted with both Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors and an internal clock that also displays indoor and outdoor temperatures.
