Do you dream of building out your own gorgeous DIY Sprinter van? Do you feel overwhelmed by all the possibilities?
It can be tough knowing where to start when it comes to building your own van.
The good news is this: You’re not alone, and countless people before you have had to figure out the best ways to build a DIY Sprinter van.
One of those people is Greg Keith, who knew absolutely nothing about building out a van when he decided to go for a Sprinter. He painstakingly learned how to do flooring, walls and insulation. He studied the best equipment to put in his new camper, from fridges, to solar, to sinks, to lighting.
Now, Greg is on his THIRD Sprinter van conversion and wants to give you the knowledge he’s acquired over the years at a very affordable price.
He’s come up with a very detailed, almost 400-page guide to a DIY Sprinter van conversion called the Sprinter RV Conversion Sourcebook. You can see some of the pages here: (click to zoom in)

Here’s some of what Greg covers in this amazing book. And let me give you a secret: This book can be used as a guide on any campervan conversion, not just for Sprinter vans. You can take all the info in this book and apply it to any van build.
You’ll find photographs, diagrams, tables, pro and con equipment comparisons. It’s really all the information you’ll need to do your DIY Sprinter van camper.
Over and over, people have said that just having everything covered in one book as a starting place was one of the most useful things about the book. With this book, you won’t have to endlessly browse various forums and websites, looking for answers.
