This was our second Mercedes Sprinter rental, we now have three and are build a fourth during 2022-23. Please refer to the Outdoorsy listing "4x4 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter High Roof" for amenities, our rental history, and reviews.

This slightly smaller 144 van is two-wheel-drive with traction control and is 19 feet long.

We’ll pick you up at Ted Stevens Airport and have you drop-off 5 minutes away.

This low mileage 2014 Sprinter 144-inch box with an extended high roof comes complete with everything necessary for your Alaska road trip. Just show up with your clothes and hiking shoes...

Exceptionally comfortable for two people even if you're six feet tall, there is an eight-inch gel foam full-sized 60x80x8 inch queen bed that runs parallel the frame of the truck allowing greater comfort for anyone over 5'10" tall. There is also running cold water, a separate diesel heater, and a removable butane range. A refrigerator and a high-grade soft cooler are provided.

The super-quiet interior fan has a remote control and can be operated to pull the cool air or push the warm air out. It will close automatically in the event of rain.

Insulated and crafted with local spruce and cottonwood, the interior was just finished in May of 2021 and offers plenty of space for your bags and outdoor gear. The counter is butcher block hardwood and has There is extensive LED lighting and even an isolated dimmer switch for reading in bed.

The van has an additional 400-watt solar system that meets the needs of most summer trips, so you'll have power when parked, not needing to hook up.

This Mercedes Sprinter is meticulously maintained, comes with an extensive road emergency kit. This diesel truck is the gold standard of functionality and gets up to 26 mpg. It's a joy to drive on the Alaskan open road.

Peter couldn't have been nicer to deal with. When the flight time got changed on us he was flexible with the times and dates. The vehicle was perfect for this adventure. Drove like a large SUV and the bed might be more comfortable than ours at home! Most everything we needed was provided and we were sorry to have to give it back after our 10 day adventure

Our dream honeymoon wouldn’t have been possible without this van! It allowed us to enjoy 4 different national parks on our two week trip and made travel and lodging so simple. Peter was very responsive and we couldn’t have been happier!

Peter was an excellent host and the van was perfect for our honeymoon trip to Alaska! Peter was super nice and knowledgeable for recommendations. The van was very clean and well appointed and the bed was super comfy. I would recommend Peter and his fleet to anyone wanting to camp in Alaska!
