Used high mileage ones are pretty ubiquitous around me. Kinda thinking about finding a cheap one and making a much bigger camper/expedition vehicle out of it. Diesel means no smog cert in CA. Some of these crazy deluxe built out ones are pretty insane, and so are the people asking 6 figures for them rofl

What say you?

The sprinters are neat, but you need to be aware of what they are and their issues before you jump in. The link above is a good read.
