First camper project for me .I'm coming from a long series of old car restaurations motorcycles , offroad and stupid projects in general . I work in a specialised recycling facility for german vehicules .

I bought the sprinter before covid last year from the guy that was taking care of the maintenance for a specialised handicapped person company here in Quebec , long story short i was able to put my hands on it only a month ago . I will start with the interior , its damn cold in quebec for now ( a lot of snow outside ) . The camper will be used for the ski season also .

it's a 2011 model with 475000km , running like a champ . if you ever have any positive or negative input , you're welcome , i'm pretty new to all of this .
I'm also a french speaking canadian , be gentle with my translation lol'

First upgrade , steering wheel and front seats . Steering is from a cla45 2017 and seats from a c63 amg 2010 ( not sure about the seats , I might wait for ml more comfortable seats )

I need to take a decision fast on the type of rack I want to use . I don’t really like what’s on the market for my budget so I will have to be creative .

I have a local welder 30 min from my house that has a prefab base kiT i can adapt to my taste . I need to calculate my things a little . Rack will be holding solar panels and the rooftop terrace , cargo , lights , awning etc I will have to think before I weld this thing .

Here’s an example of what he does .

Should I keep this ? It was used for wheelchairs . I don’t see the point but a couple of my friends are trying to make me keep it . For motorcycles , for heavy things etc . I have a trailer for that , so I guess it needs to go .

So many choice of front seats , ml350 2012 or r350 2010 that just came in at the shop for parts . Keeping the third and second row seats of the r350 for the rear of the truck

Seems to be going good, and it looks like you scored a good deal.

I live in PEI and am having a hard time, ecspecially with Covid, even finding a suitable van.

Good luck, I’ll be watching for sure
