Default Sprinter models

What year did the sprinter change specs? We liked at a 05 Great West Van and I couldn’t stand up inside - I am 6’1” and with shoes my head was hitting the ceiling.

I believe the specs (and interior ceiling height) changed when it went to a 170 wheelbase. I think it happened in 06 but not sure??

The T1N went through 2006. Many 2007 RV builds are on 2006 MB bodies.
My 2007 Great West Legend for instance is on a 2006 van.

I'm 6'1" plus and have no issues with the height.

Thanks. Can anyone with a 2006-2007 Roadtrek Adventurous and/or a 06-07 Pleasure Way tell me the inside height of their ceiling?

Those are both T1N Sprinters and the ceiling heights could vary depending on how the company built them for the ceiling and of course the floor. I believe the possible height is slightly less than the new NC3V models but not less than 6'-1" if I recall. My current Sprinter for Advanced RV has a ceiling height of 6'-3". Since I am 5'-9" I didn't have a concern with either. ARV converts a Super High roof Sprinter with a 6'-8" ceiling.

Our 2006 Pleasure Way Plateau TS has an interior height of 72 inches (6 ft.), and that's a problems since I am 6'3"!! Other than that, I absolutely love our PW, but just put it up for sale on this forum because we bought a larger RV (2011 View 24J) that I can stand erect in and not destroy my posture or have to go through periodic concussion protocols!!

Thanks for the info. We are trying to stick with a class b. Looks like I will need to look for a newer sprinter (after 200. I have been in the newer ones and was able to stand upright (an important feature!!).

Does anybody know what changes are in store for the 2019 Sprinter? I wish they would come out with a mid size model between the 144 and the 170. Maybe one with fulltime AWD for winter driving. Adaptive cruise control would be nice and so would the alert for cross traffic when backing up.

Backing up? The first thing any veteran RVer does is disable the reverse gear

I didn't realize that ACC and cross traffic alert weren't included in their safety package. Seems like most other OEMs have.

The current model has a full time AWD mode and a part time 4x4 mode.

The USA spec Sprinter 4x4 is different from the Euro spec.

The USA spec includes the AWD.

My understanding is that the vehicle must be stopped to engage the system. So can this system be used on dry roads?
