10+ Sprinter Van Conversions to Inspire Your Custom RV Build

Sprinter van conversions have become a favorite among vanlifers and professional RV builders alike.

Their interior height and range of available lengths allow for standing room and plenty of individual customizations.

If you have a Sprinter van or are considering one, the conversions I’ve listed below are some of my favorites. I’ve collected these in my personal bookmarks over the last few years to admire as well as inspire my own conversions.

At first, I only included vans built by private individuals in this list, I excluded those built by professional companies.

Ultimate Sprinter Van Conversion – A Stealth Apartment on Wheels

Stealth Sprinter Van Conversion

This is one of the first conversions that really made me sit up and go ‘WOW’. It really is an apartment on wheels, which as you’ll see from many others on this list is a design style that really appeals to me.

The bed sits on an electric hoist that is raised during the day to open up the comfortable seating area. At night the bed is lowered effortlessly. So it has a full size always made bed, and a comfortable seating area made with real home quality furniture, without compromising on space.

The van is also completely off-grid, with a solar and battery system that runs everything inside. There is no onboard gas as the stove runs on the vans diesel tank.

A very inspirational build, you can find out more about it here.

Van ife Builds Sprinter Conversion

This unique layout is so cute and homely I’m seriously jealous. And you might have noticed, this and a lot of the other builds I’ve featured here are from the UK. I don’t know why that is, these are just the Sprinter builds that have caught my eye over the last 5 years or so.

I think it’s probably because the UK have had more time with these vans as they’re still somewhat new to North America.

Sprinter Van Conversion Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Sprinter van conversion cost?

A Sprinter van conversion will cost you somewhere between $30,000 right up to $150,000. There are a lot of factors that come in to play such as whether you purchase a new or used van. Convert yourself or opt for a factory conversion, the wheelbase, whether you want 4 wheel drive, and the quality of the fittings and amenities you want.

Is a Sprinter van worth it?

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is definitely one of the more pricy vans on the market, but it’s undoubtably also one of the best. If you want something with similar load capacity but is a bit less expensive, take a look at the Ram ProMaster.

How high is a Sprinter van? Can you stand in a Sprinter van?

The standard model has a roof height of 96.3 inches (244cm), and the high roof mode has a height of 107.5 inches (273cm). This is from the ground outside the van.

Inside, the standard model has a standing height of 67.7 inches (172cm) or 5 ft 7 inches, and the high roof model has a standing height of 79.1 inches (200cm) or 6 ft 7 inches.

So only the very, very tall will not be able to stand in a Sprinter van.

Are Sprinter vans expensive to maintain?

I haven’t owned one myself, but from all that I’ve heard and read, this is the one downside to owning a Sprinter, maintenance costs can be brutal.

But then again you will hear conflicting reports, you can read a more thorough article on this here, and check the comments there too.

I hope this article helps inspire your own van build whether you opt for a Sprinter or any other van.
