oh crap, I already bought a sprinter back in April and have been afraid to tell Colin! It's mostly for work I swear! Bosch has me covering 7 states now and I prefer to camp instead of crappy hotels so I took took the "plunge" and bought a 5 year old one with a westy-like package! :cyclopsani:
There, I said it now!

yep, here it is.
2008 sprinter converted and titled a coach in 2010 got it with 32K on it and it now has 44K and climbing! :cheers:
I love it for stealth camping when traveling for work, almost everything runs on 12volt inside (except the roof air of course)

Fine looking rig. If I re-badge it, and put my tools and some workshop equipment in the trailer, I could step up my game.
How much for the whole thing?

Thinking out loud here:

Colin, did the Jasper shop give you any extra paint they had after the job? It would be nice to have for touch ups if you have any areas where you need it. I wish I would have asked last time my Jetta was in the shop… Damn sparkle colors…

One pint for the inside (this is the original paint code from the factory)
One pint for the outside (the incorrect code that Fred The Oversprayer used)
Six little cans of all the nightmare attempts to get it correctly - red, black, white, green, and various ochres and yellows.

Experiments to come.
