Heavy duty storage drawers for Sprinter Vans

In this post I’ll explain who to build some heavy duty drawers for the rear storage area of your Sprinter to maximize storage space. If you have some woodworking experience this should be easy for you but you’ll need to know how to operate a dado blade and table saw (or know someone who does). On the difficulty scale I would rate this project a solid four.

Connect interior lights to the house battery

An empty starter battery can ruin your day. That’s why you should route your interior lights to the house battery instead. In a T1N Sprinter, this is an easy task – you just have to find the right cable to cut into 🙂 Other than that this is a simple 2 on the difficulty scale and the most tricky part is to route the cable from your house battery to the connection point.

Adding a rear rooftop AC to a Sprinter Van

If you’re like me and want to camp even when it’s blazing hot outside you’ll need an additional A/C unit to keep the temperatures down while stationary. This post describes how to install a rooftop A/C unit that runs on shore power. The job itself is not too difficult but requires cutting a whole in your roof and at least parts of the installation require the help of a second person. I would rate this a four on the 1 to 10 scale of difficulty.
