Mercedes-Benz Camper Van (diesel)
With a heavy heart, I am selling my beloved Mercedes-Benz camper van.
Affectionately known as "Edith", this van originates in Switzerland and has enabled countless adventures.
Edith is in great working condition, and has been regularly maintained by Crown Tech automotive in North Vancouver (the best for European imports!).
She is a 4-cylinder, fwd, manual transmission, diesel -- and is incredibly fuel efficient -- using roughly 25% less fuel than a modern Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
While the Mercedes-Benz MB 100 D is rare in North America (I've never seen another one on the continent), it's common in Europe. Parts are still relatively easy to find through Mercedes-Benz Europe or AutoDoc.co.uk).
Edith fits a double bed (the rear bench seats in the picture fold out, and normally I keep a full sized mattress back there). She has a water tank, sink, toilet, and a shower (although I'm currently having issues with my water pump -- so this may need replaced). She also has a propane fridge, stove, and heater.
The van has some minor quirks which you should know about, including that:
-the rear door won't unlock with the key from the outside -the driver-side rear-view mirror is fixed (was struck by a car, so was bonded in place) -the rear ceiling vent is cracked (but has been sealed) -- I have a replacement vent that I will provide as part of the sale, but also you may want to consider installing a fan since there's already an accessory battery) -Edith has a little rust as the bottom of her sliding door, but overall has very little rust -the passenger-side windshield wiper is cracked
I have a crate of spare parts that are included as a bonus in the sale.
I feel sad selling this van, but my life situation has changed so it's time to part ways. I'm hoping Edith will find a new owner who will keep the adventure going! Mercedes diesel engines are bullet-proof, so with regular maintenance and TLC this van can run well for a long time to come.
