I’ve started my Sprinter conversion thread on Sprinter-Source.com. I’m turning my empty cargo van into an off-grid urban stealth camper and mobile office. The first post has nearly all my hardware listed and why I chose it.
This forum has a huge number of detailed build threads for various Sprinter RV conversions, and has been enormously helpful in making decisions so far. My goal is to provide enough detail on my conversion that someone else could duplicate any part of it with minimal technical skill.
I’ll be making my detailed posts there as I go, and then cross posting a link and a summary here to my blog and to FaceBorg, just like I’m doing now. My current goal is to get my solar panels mounted before Memorial Day when I’ll be going to Burning Flipside. I finally managed to find the slide brackets necessary to attach something to the rails on the roof, which was shocking hard to discover. I got eight of these to bolt on the panels, which are already mounted in pairs on aluminum rails.
I’m excited to see this project coming together!
