I love the full height ceilings on the sprinters but man, pricing on used ones is just insane compared to a plain old e150 or something like that. Im looking at vans for potential summer living/travel. And fuel economy doesnt mean shit right now with such cheap gas. The only saving grace is being able to recoup much of that cost when it gets resold. Some of the murican vans sit forever on craigslist. Just wish i could get a cheap murican van that i can stand up in.

dare to dream…

It is but it's quite worth it in the long run. I'm almost done with all the mechanical work.

Anyone have any recommendations on where to get deep cycle batteries? A friend mentioned a small local shop called canadian tire? But nothings on sale.

I ended up buying just a plain jane white chevy van and now I have to fill it up with stuff.

Go to battery world on boundary.
Best battery type is AGM as they do not off gas when being charged.
I have a lot of experience with deep cycle batteries . What specifically is your application and needs?
Pm if me you like :)

These batteries need exterior venting as they can offgas nitric acid gas. Think Bhopal India….
