Interesting they said assembled in my home state of South Carolina.

Default Re: Sprinter 4X4!

All US Sprinters (with a few exceptions) are shipped and assembled in South Carolina for tariff reasons. That's not news. They are first assembled in Germany, then disassembled and shipped. Basically as I understand it, it is the engine and drive train shipped separate from the body. BTW, Mercedes Benz North America is moving their corporate headquarters from northern New Jersey to Atlanta, GA. There have been rumors of a Sprinter manufacturing plant being built in America. Georgia or South Carolina might be in the running.

The crosswind assist is only available on 2500 Sprinters It is not available on the 3500 dually used for most all Class Bs.

As much as I would have liked a 4x4 it probably would have only been needed to get up our driveway in the winter to get south. That and maybe tempt me to try some beach boondocking. I have no intentions, plans or desires to shake the inside of my B up on those road examples.

Even with 4WD and the extra clearance, a Sprinter RV is not an off-road vehicle. The 4WD though does add a margin of security and might help resale, especially if that becomes that standard class-b format over the next several years.

It was amusing to see wheels off the ground on that road test.

I can only imagine what that would do to an RV interior.
