German automaker Mercedes-Benz has its Sprinter Cargo Van that looks like a typical van - well, that was until family-owned Bossi Van Conversions tricked out a 2021 Mercedes Sprinter 170 4x4 van.
An Agile Off Road RIP (Ride Improvement Package) was installed on the demo van, designed to increase stability and comfort - and maximize the vehicle's usable suspension capability. Artemis included a heat and hot water system, solar panels, multiple batteries, solar panels, and a roof vent fan.
The inside of the van showcases custom cabinetry that is practical, while the wall panels and flooring were also custom upholstered.
The Artemis would sell for $240,000 - or the auto customization business can convert a customer's van for $110,000. Not surprisingly, other modified versions of Mercedes Sprinter vans tend to cost at least $150,000 - although featured with a wild variety of added amenities.
Speaking of Sprinter vans, in late October, around 125,000 units were recalled by Mercedes. The models from 2019 to 2022 had an issue with the parking pawl connected to the transmission - and the van could roll away while parked.
Multiple auto manufacturers have shown interest in camper vans to help drivers go and explore nature with some added amenities. Despite COVID-19 restrictions being lifted, apparently interest in camper vans - and similar models - remains relatively high.
