Best Custom Sprinter 4×4 Camper
Bruce Banner is one of a kind. Starting life as a standard 2WD LWB Sprinter owners @werollwithit swapped out the entire running gear for Dana axles and an Atlas transfer case and fitted a very sexy custom interior. Bruce has old school manual hub lockers. He has 20″ Rhino Armoury wheels with Falken 37″ x 13.50″ MT tyres.
It’s a striking looking camper van, surely one of a kind, and inside has all the mod cons that you would expect from owners with such impeccable taste. The interior was fitted out by US converters TouRig who have done a stuning job with the palette chosen by their customers who described the look and feel of a cigar lounge! The interior features Scheel-Mann seats with matching upholstery on the settee. TouRig’s signature aluminium airliner cabinets keep the build light weight and amenities include a full kitchen and stainless shower.
On board the Victron Energy Plus system manages 375 watts of solar into the 600Ah lithium battery bank. Media is provided by an MB Quart dual zone (yup, that’s separate zones inside & out) speaker system.
Other toys on the outside include Backwoods front and rear bumpers with rear box and tyre carrier, and the brands first ever full length roof rack and side steps. Bruce has a Terrawagen snorkel with pre-filter. Bruce can light up the night with an army of Pathfinder LED lights up front, on sides and underneath for ambient nights by the campfire
I caught up with @werollwithit and asked them specifically about the build:
We wanted to make a vehicle which bridged the gap between sprinter van an expedition truck. This van started life as a 2500 2WD Mercedes Sprinter Cargo Van. Now it has the first ever all American built 4×4 solid axle swap. The 4×4 is mostly Ford parts, a lot of custom components made to marry the the new 4×4 to the Mercedes body.
