They started it, and 44 days later, the project was done. I don't know if you're familiar with how much a camper van build typically takes - trust me, 44 days is really quick. However, Caleb treated the build like a full-time job, even more than that, working from sunrise to sunset.
On the exterior, this Sprinter van looks pretty standard – it's finished in white paint, and you might even be able to stealth camp with it. The only indicators of its camper DNA are the solar panels on the roof, but only a keen eye will spot those.
The true magic of this build happens on the inside. Pop the sliding door open, and you'll discover that a utility closet occupies part of the entryway. This space is designed to hold snowboards, skis, and other bulky winter gear. What's more, the compartment is lined in neoprene, meaning it's waterproof.
The first area you'll be in when you step inside is the kitchen, which is split into two parts. It features a decent amount of counter space, a dual-burner induction stove, a deep sink with an extra filtered water faucet, and a bunch of storage space in the form of drawers and cabinets.
One large drawer holds an Iceco 75-liter (almost 20-gallon) fridge/freezer box, which the couple explained is enough to keep three weeks' worth of food. Moreover, a cabinet under the sink holds a Thetford toilet mounted on a drawer slide.
The space beside the sink, on the driver's side, is taken up by two enormous closets – it's where the couple stores all of their clothes. There are also many drawers under them, one of which serves as a charging point, as it comes with an outlet.
The last part of the living space is the lounge/bedroom area. It consists of two long benches with custom-made mattresses, a huge swivel table, and two large windows with black-out shades. Furthermore, this space can be transformed into a guest bed by attaching the table between the benches and rearranging the cushions.
You'll notice the ceiling is closer here than in the rest of the van – that's because the ceiling is, in fact, an elevator bed. You can lower and raise the elevator bed at the press of a button. I'm a big fan of elevator beds in vans, as they save a lot of space.
Before I end things, I want to tell you more about the utility systems in this camper van. I mentioned that the purpose of this build was to be the perfect mobile home for winter sports – in this regard, the couple added a heated shower and heated floors. For cooling, you can use a ceiling-mounted Dometic A/C.
All in all, Ramsey and Caleb did a fantastic job with this Sprinter van conversion. My favorite parts are the interior aesthetic and the waterproof utility closet meant to house winter sports gear. What's more, the use of an elevator opens up the back area, creating a spacious lounge.
