Matt's 144" Utilitarian Sprinter

Matt came to us with his 144" 4x4 Sprinter on big tires ready to create the ultimate adventure machine.  He wanted easy to clean, durable, and tough looking finishes to meet the challenges that await him every season in Montana.

Before it's arrival Matt had already installed the solar panels, Espar heater, and a few other items in the van.  He left it up to us to take his design and make it a reality!  This included working around his existing bed frame in order to mount his foldable bench seat and custom (removable) kitchenette to L-track that we flush mounted in the floor.

This custom kitchenette was built in house using "Stop Red" Formica and a custom cut butcher block counter top.  The drop in SMEV combo not only has a clean look, but also creates a functional cooking and cleaning area.  This unit is mounted to L-track in the floor and is completely removable so that Matt has room to store extra gear while out searching for adventure.

Take a look inside and you'll find two 7-Gal jerry cans for fresh and grey water storage, along with an 11lb propane bottle for the stove.  An electric water pump also feeds the foldable faucet designed to work with the SMEV combo.

Simplicity was the name of the game when Matt first approached us.  His upper walls are covered in pre-finished maple, while the lower halves are covered in the Lonseal coin mat flooring material for easy cleaning and a rugged look.  This foldable bench seat was brought to us and is mounted to the L-track run flush in the floor along the driver side of the van.

When folded up the bench seat allows for extra storage space - or room to roam for Matt's Great Dane.

The back of Matt's Sprinter includes a battery box and wheel well box covered in the Lonseal coin mat flooring material.  Everything was trimmed in aluminum to give it a tough look that's easy to maintain.  Also pictured is an RB Components snowboard rack mounted under the bed on the driver side of the vehicle.

Not only do the wheel well covers look great, they each have build in storage and removable lids.  Another piece of L-track was run across the back of the van for bike mounts or gear mounts.  We loved building this van and hope that it serves its purpose for years to come!
