Default 2007 Mercedes Benz / Dodge Sprinter

I think the 2007 Mercedes Benz / Dodge Sprinter will be for sale in the US in February.



Lot's of choices!

This is a VW Crafter. It's made by Mercedes Benz and is basically a Sprinter with a VW badge.

These are photos of the 2007 Mercedes Benz Sprinter - Extra Long with Super High Roof







This could be a BIG "B"

For average height do-it-yourselfers, the Super High Roof model (7' interior) would allow you put tanks, batteries (maybe AGM's), pumps etc. under a sub-floor and still have 6' standing height.

I think it'll be time for us to upgrade when PleasureWay starts putting a B into one of those!

You can tell I like the Extra Long model with the Super High Roof by all the photos of it that I posted

But........... I've been thinking

I like the SS-Agile but don't think I could give up the storage space that I have in my 190P. The new Standard length (19.4') with with the Extra High Roof (7') could be like an SS-Agile with mega storage Pretty good for two people.

Very informative article here:

http://www.allpar.com/trucks/sprinter.html

I found this interesting:

The new mega-roof is made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic and may be painted in any body color. Available with either fixed or opening skylights of single-layer safety glass, an optional transparent plastic skylight is also available. Supplied by Westfalia Van Conversion, a DaimlerChrysler subsidiary, the mega-roof is produced in Germany.

The mega-roof gives an 84 inch interior roof height!

I read on another forum that nothing can be mounted/attached to the roof or roof sides in the new high top.
Oh, I know where it was, it was on Sportsmobiles web site. It's a D/C thing, not Smobiles.
Might make for a very different cabinetry setup in them. the B makers, other than Smobile may not even use that model because of this restriction....
