The Mercedes Sprinter – the versatile van from the German automotive manufacturer, first made its appearance on the market in 1995. Since then, it has undergone two restylings. The first (in 2006), also included structural changes, the second (in 2014) considerably changed the Sprinter’s look. Today it comes in three engine types: a diesel 4-cylinder engine with power 70, 95 and 120 kW; a V6 CDI diesel with 140 kW; and natural gas in the two-wheel drive versions, monovalent or bivalent petrol/natural gas.

It comes in a large variety of different sizes: from the short wheel base to extra long, there are four possibilities in length, which you can combine with three different heights (standard, high, super high roof). The maximum capacity reaches 17 cubic meters, with a payload of 2710 kg. The Sprinter is an ideal van to create your own mobile workshop, with ample space for working and moving around easily in the cargo area. A fully organized mobile workshop, it is tidy and functional, thanks to a conversion designed and installed by experienced Syncro New Zealand technicians, who have been installing Sprinter van conversions for the past twenty years.

All-round protection for the Mercedes Sprinter

Given the way most vans are used, with heavy and bulky cargo loaded and unloaded on a daily basis, tools and materials accidentally dropped and liquids spilled, it is hardly surprising that the floor, walls, doors and even the underside of the roof can easily sustain damage.  Interior liners from Syncro New Zealand can protect your Sprinter from daily wear and tear and from the dents and scratches that can eventually lead to rust and perforation of your van’s bodywork.

The photo above illustrates a Mercedes Sprinter with aluminium liners on the walls and doors. The wheel arches are lined with a combination of galvanized steel and aluminium tread plate. This latter material also lines the van’s bulkhead. The floor liner is in damp-proof and water-proof resin-coated plywood with a non-slip surface.

Thanks to its large cargo compartment, a suitable racking system can turn your Sprinter into a compact but well-equipped mobile workshop. The example seen above shows a van fitted out with drawers, shelves and a practical, two-door locker that is ideal for storing not just work clothes but items of value too.  The racking also includes a number of case trays, a plywood workbench and a fold-away vice bench complete with vice.
