Moohah, Our Deeply Loved Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van is for Sale

Top of the Line 2016 4x4 Mercedes Sprinter Adventure Van for Sale for $138,000

We're selling our top-of-the-line van buildout by ADF Sprinters, the premier van builder and licensed Mercedes-Benz outfitter in Southern California. This 2016 Mercedes Sprinter van 144 is the ultimate social distance adventure vehicle—no more worries about canceled flights, questionable hotels, or dirty public restrooms. It's a very comfortable way to explore North America at a safe social distance, whether you're traveling solo, with a partner, or with the whole family. 

This is the perfect modular build to allow your adventure van to conform to your immediate needs. The powder-coated, lightweight aluminum bed frames can easily be removed for loading, moving, cargo, stashing bikes, or loading up surfboards.  

A custom-made 2-seater bench can be put in behind the Mercedes-Benz factory 3-seater bench to convert the van to a people-mover/party-bus mode, allowing you to safely move up to 7 humans. 

When the bed is in, the Sprinter van is nicely compartmentalized with an upper sleeping area and a lower area that is high enough for storage, bikes, and even using the toilet.

My two daughters (now 10 and 13) and I designed this van—which they named Moohah—together as a post-divorce bonding experience. You may have been following #vanlife on Instagram and come across our account, @moohahvanadventures, where we documented the whole build and our travels. Moohah has taken us on ski vacations, camping trips, to many National Parks, surfing, solar eclipse viewing, and to semi-formal father-daughter dances.

Moohah also inspired us to start a family business selling custom van window covers (Moohah.com) and even directly led me to the new love of my life and the girls’ stepmom. Suffice it to say, this van has some magical energy.  

 

We are going to be very sad to part with Moohah, but we're also extremely excited to help you fulfill your own vanlife dreams. This adventure van has great vibes, great memories, and there could not be better karma with any vehicle!

 

Our golden retriever, Lewis, loves the van as well. It’s been his second home since we picked him up in it as a puppy. Your dog will love it, too. The Lonseal laminate floors are super easy to clean, and the additional AC unit and fans mean the dog can be left in a temperature-controlled van, even when you're away doing human things.  

 

The van is filled with creature comforts and super fun details, like the #teamyellowfridge my girls rallied so hard for, teal powder coating on the bed frames, and color-changing LED lights. (By the way, if yellow's not your thing, you can easily swap the panel out for another color.)

We will be sad to see her go, and will be so happy for her to adventure forth and bring happiness and adventure to her next lucky crew.
