“It’s got 4WD, it’s got low-range. Crawling angles are 28 approach, 27 departure, 25 breakover,” writes Andrew Collins, as he describes the latest Mercedes-Benz off-roader he’s been invited to test under the wide-open Colorado sky. But he wasn’t going over the specs of some other massive, overweight SUV. Instead, he was describing an RV. A camper van built on the solid, rugged bones of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Sportsmobile.
We’re big fans of Mercedes and Sprinter-based campers here, whether they’re of the solar/bio-diesel variety or the smaller, V-class based “glampers“. Both of those, however, can get to be pretty pricey.
“Obviously you could buy a really nice Jeep, a camping loadout that would last you through the zombie apocalypse, and quite a few hotel room splurges for this kind of money. But some people like the bring-your-own-all-inclusive sleepover experience,” explains Collins. “And, for that, the Sportsmobile is hard to beat.”
