The van life is growing in popularity thanks to better conversion methods and the social media spotlights that have been placed by vloggers and influencers. In fact, according to Econ Market Research, the global van conversion market size was estimated at a whopping $8.05 billion in 2022 alone. As you might imagine, a successful van conversion depends heavily on the type of van you choose. The Sprinter has quickly become a go-to option for van lifers all over the world. Let’s look at a few reasons why this particular model is so loved.
1. You Want Customizable Space
A top priority, if you're going to be living in your van for any amount of time, is for the vehicle to have room for living. If you've seen a Sprinter in person, you know they provide this in spades. Whether you're looking to add separated spaces, cabinets for storage, a kitchen, or a bathroom, there are plenty of design strategies to fit it all in.
2. You're Looking for a Quality Ride
Looking for a four-wheel drive option? It's hard to find a better option on the market. The Sprinter has a worldwide reputation for reliability. In fact, this van model has won the “Most Reliable Van” category for five years in a row at the FN50 Awards, according to Auto Capital. As a Mercedes Benz product, you can expect an amazing driving experience from this van. Even though it's their largest vehicle offering, you can still enjoy smooth maneuverability, unlike anything you’d experience with a big bulky RV. This van can actually cover more difficult terrain safely than most traditional RVs or vans.
3. You Want Value for Your Investment
As the owner, it's natural that you'd want the best deal for your dollar. A Sprinter van offers peak reliability and gas mileage, ensuring smooth sailing for you and your wallet alike. In addition, since the model is so popular, it can be easier to find design recommendations and styling ideas that you can implement into your own build with ease.
