Hi guys! My name is Tony. I am planning to buy an RV. Is a Mercedes Sprinter a good choice?

I’ve heard a lot of good stories from Class B owners with the Sprinter chassis. Here’s a link for more information https://www.thefitrv.com/rv-tips/my-class-b-manufacturer-list/

Tony,

Welcome to the Diesel RV Club.

Much of that depends on how/where you will use it.

Most have very little carrying capacity-- probably OK for weekending but not really a good choice for full timing.

Depending on year, they require ULSD, so V6 models would not be a good choice if headed south of the border.
