Hello, I live in Slovenia and preparing to build a camper on 7meter MB Sprinter basis.

Looking forward to collect some of your experience and knowledge, maybe I could contribute a little myself too. But I am fighting with a lot of new stuff on subject ;)

Hello,

I am sure you will find this forum good as a sounding board for ideas :)
There are also a few very good YouTube Channels with well explained and filmed conversions of a Sprinter which I like and recommend watching for ideas.

These are my personal 3 Sprinter favourites

Van Tourist - A Russian Guy called Ivan who self converted his LHD Sprinter
(I like this one as both he and I used a very similar approach and logic in some of the products selected)


Humble Road - An American called George with an intense eye for detail and logical approaching


Greg Vigoe - UK Self Conversion of RHD Sprinter with a similar eye for detail as Humble Road but different products used and a different end goal

Thanks Wildebus. Greg I know, I think I watched all of his videos. He is great, not only for van stuff but also on how to use of tools etc.
I will check other two as well.

Welcome aboard Frayer, I hope you find your conversion as totally captivating as most of the reast of us.

A quick word of warning though, as your van is a Sprinter I beg you to make certain you treat all the rust you will undoubtedly find before starting your build as sadly these mechanically excellent vans were built with bodies that had woefully inadequate resistance to the dreaded tin eating monster!

Thanks for the welcome.
For the rust: I know... I can`t understand what happened in those MB minds; all other (and cheaper) vans are better in this regard.

With the exception of the Ford Transit which melts away even faster than a Merc!!

Hi and welcome,would just like to point out one conversion above shows a m/bike in side van,this is not allowed in uk unless it is classed as a living /day van and not a motorhome,you can though carry a m/bike on the rear,all seems daft to me but there has been a court case here and conviction,so anyone doing this beware .
