2018 Sprinter Van Cottage Converted in 2021 For Sale

The van was converted into a tiny home in 2021. It’s a 2018 Sprinter van with a 144″ wheelbase.

The van has a beautiful wood ceiling finish and yes, an interior shower.

The bed area turns into a dining space.

The living space is actually separated from the cockpit but it is accessible via a clever sliding pocket door.

This really makes it feel like a little cottage and it also adds a certain level of extra privacy and safety when traveling and sleeping in remote areas and what-not.

What do you think of this van design so far?

Here is the van in sleeping mode.

This is what the van looks like with the rear doors open.

There’s a 26-gallon freshwater tank down here plus room for gear.

There are two sliding windows in the bed area for ventilation. When you open these and turn on the MaxxAir rooftop fan it creates a nice breeze!
