13 Best Sprinter Van Conversion Kits for a DIY Van

Sprinter van conversion kits are a happy medium between complete DIY and a custom build. Choose parts and pieces from various companies to complete your Sprinter build!

Are you ready to live the van life in a rad Sprinter van camper? Converting a Sprinter van into a home on wheels DIY can be a daunting prospect, though, especially if you aren’t confident in your building skills.

Sprinter van conversion kits are a happy medium between a total DIY van build and a custom Sprinter van conversion, which can cost upwards of $100,000.

Some of these van conversion kit components are sophisticated, such as kitchenettes with an in-built water system, others are more basic, like platform beds. Sprinter van conversion kits are usually modular, lightweight and compact.

If you go for a Sprinter conversion kit, you decide what parts you feel confident installing and what items you’d rather buy pre-made (the kits).

Here are our favorite camper van conversion kits out there for your Sprinter, in no particular order.

If you’re looking for the simplest DIY interior ever for your Sprinter van, look no further than the Adventure Wagon conversion kits. These amazing kits include everything you’ll need to build out your Sprinter van walls and ceiling.

You get a complete wiring harness for your electrical system with an Adventure Wagon kit, plus insulation, a ceiling fan, L-track for installing components like countertops and shelving, and wall and ceiling panels. You can also choose between several interior fabric colors.

We recently toured Adventure Wagon headquarters near Portland, Oregon and were thoroughly impressed by their offerings. These interior kits are top-notch.

If you don’t want to DIY your Adventure Wagon conversion kit, you can reserve a slot at their warehouse where van builders will install your kit in just 5 days.

You can also browse certified installers through the Adventure Wagon website. Many installers are now relying on these kits as a base for Sprinter van conversions.

Adventure Wagon also sells soft upper cabinets, MOAB beds and MONK beds.

Flatline Van Sprinter Van Conversion Kits

Once you’ve installed an Adventure Wagon interior kit, you can put in the rest of your van’s components by attaching them to the L-track system. The L-track runs along the interior of your Sprinter, and acts as a brace for you to add shelving, a kitchen unit, your bed, and anything else you want to add.

Flatline Van Company is like a one-stop shop for finishing out your Sprinter van interior. We also got the opportunity to tour Flatline’s headquarters in Scappoose, Oregon. One thing we particularly love about this conversion kit company is that everything listed on their website is in stock without any shipment delays.

Here are some of the components you can get from Flatline:

Flatline also offers lots of exterior parts for a Sprinter van, including roof racks and campervan awnings.

TIMBER Camper Van Conversion by Titan Vans

TIMBER Camper Van Conversion by Titan Vans

Looking for a high quality full conversion kit? The TIMBER Camper Van Conversion by Titan Vans is made of durable baltic birch plywood and is designed to be super functional. It features a removable Bi-Slide bed, galley with space for a fridge, spray-down shower, cabinetry, electrical system, plumbing, flooring, paneling, and insulation.

That’s basically everything you need! But you can make your camper even cozier by adding a heater, fridge, and ceiling fan. Windows are optional; we highly recommend them, unless being stealthy is your number one priority on a daily basis.

The TIMBER Camper Van Conversion by Timber Vans are for High Roof Sprinters, Transits, and ProMasters. At the moment, you need to get it installed by Titan Vans in Boulder, Colorado. However, the guys are working on a DIY install version of it and are partnering up with approved van builders around the states.

Titan Vans also offer single units, such as kitchens and cabinets, you can quickly install DIY. On our current Sprinter van camper, we used Titan’s Paper Templates to cut out our wall panels, and their Structural Assembly for Sprinter vans.

Zenvanz Complete Interior Conversion Kits

ZensVanz makes a gorgeous Sprinter van conversion kit with an aluminum exoskeleton and bent bamboo panels.

You install these components into your Mercedes Sprinter camper van using factory holes, no additional drilling needed. The DIY van kit can be easily removed as needed to convert your van back into a daily driver.

The ZenVanz van conversion kit includes a kitchen with solid bamboo cabinetry, upper and bedside cabinets, 3-panel bed system, fold-out gear drying rack, slide-out porta potty concealer and an option to add-on bamboo ceiling slats, door and wall panels.

These are gorgeous conversion kits for Mercedes Sprinter vans that will get you on the road in no time.

Flarespace Bed Systems

We think the Flarespace flares and bed system are one of the best Sprinter van conversion kits out there. We opted for a DIY install for the flares and Super FlyWeight Anti-Gravity Bed Panels.

Flarespace flares allow us to sleep sideways, especially important for a smaller van like our 144′ wheelbase.

This Sprinter van conversion kit frees up tons more space inside a van!

You can either DIY the Flarespace install or take it to a custom installer. We took the flares to an auto body shop for paint matching, cut holes in the van and glued in the flares.

We then used the interior trim rings and interior finish kit to round out the look. The Flarespace flare system is a top-notch product that we highly recommend. We couldn’t be happier.

We also installed their Super Fly Weight Bed System, which is incredibly lightweight – one of our main goals for our build. The panels are a little wobbly so we did add some structural support for a firmer bed, but that’s entirely up to you.

We loved the Flarespace van conversion kit and highly recommend it.

VanLab’s affordable and functional conversion kits

A VanLab Sprinter conversion kit

VanLab is fairly new on the market. Because there are so many great conversion companies out there, they had to come up with an exceptional product. Their floor plan is self-contained, designed to cleverly tuck away everything to maximize room.

Infinity Sprinter Van Interior Kits

Infinity Vans is brand new – the company launched in June 2022. They offer something truly unique – fully integrated conversion kits for Sprinter vans. And when we say fully integrated, we mean it.

The full kit comes with floors, walls and ceiling, complete with cut-outs and, plumbing and wiring. On top of this, you can opt for a dinette, a platform bed, a kitchen and overhead cabinets.

The kitchen comes with cut-outs for a fridge, sink and stovetop. You can also easily install a roof vent fan and skylight without needing to cut any holes.

The system is available for 144″ and 170″ Sprinters. You don’t need to purchase the full kit, though – choose between the flooring, cabinetry, wall panels and kitchen.

The product is mainly aimed at conversion companies, as it allows them to save time and turn around no-custom builds a lot faster. For this reason, it’s rather expensive.

However, the kit can be installed DIY. So if you’re practical and are looking to save some money on a professional conversion without compromising on quality and style, this is the way to go.

Esplori aluminum conversion kit

Esplori is the latest custom van builder looking to solve long wait times and expense concerns with a brand new conversion kit for Sprinter vans. These kits are really unique as they are made out of aluminum.

Esplori says their wall and ceiling panels are 40% lighter than traditional materials and are fireproof, recyclable, easy to clean and come in a variety of colors. Also included in the kit will be a complete wiring harness for a van, lighting, a fan, insulation and charging outlets.

What’s really cool is that you can decide to do a DIY install, an assisted DIY install or bring your van into Esplori headquarters for a professional install.

We love the idea of a lightweight van conversion kit as it’s better for off-roading and keeps gas expenses down.

Alpine Van Works offers an engineered modular interior system for Sprinters that is meant for the DIY van builder to install in a weekend. You’ll choose between 8 different colors or patterns for your wall and ceiling panels.

For an extra charge, Alpine will cut holes in the fabric if you have Flarespace flares, but all other holes are included, like for windows, a front fan opening or slider mid-door stop. You can also select what type of lighting you’ll be using in the ceiling, or if you don’t want any cuts for lights at all.

These upholstered interior panels are designed to fit right into your Sprinter van’s stock holes, so you won’t need to make many new cuts in the steel. You’ll also get 1/8″ upholstery foam behind the fabric that helps give your van a cozy feel and reduces road noise.

The Sprinter Accessories We’re Using

Once you’ve built out the interior of your Sprinter van, it’s time to start thinking about accessories. We’re in the process of building our own 2021 4×4 Sprinter van 144.

Here are some of our top picks and components we are using on our van.

Battle Born Lithium Battery System

Our Battleborn Battery Bank

We partnered with Battleborn Batteries to install a lithium battery system in our Sprinter van. Lithium batteries weigh a lot less than AGM or lead-acid batteries and can be drained to 0% without ruining the battery. We opted for the warming batteries in case we are ever below freezing, as regular lithium batteries don’t charge below a certain temperature.

We are super excited to have BattleBorn lithium batteries as part of our solar system!

Thinsulate Kits

The CNC machine-cut Thinsulate Kits by Campervan HQ make it super easy to insulate your van, so the process of converting it DIY becomes a whole lot easier and faster. They provide sound dampening, thermal, and moisture-resistant insulation.

The kits come with a visual diagram and numbered cut-outs, so you can just grab it out of its box and install it, rather than spending a lot of time measuring and cutting. They’re compatible with Transit and Sprinter vans.

All you need to do is test fit each piece and attach them all to your van’s walls.

27-Gallon Spare Tire Water Tank

We purchased a 27-gallon spare tire water tank from RB components for our Sprinter van. This water tank is so simple to install and carries tons of water. We love the low center of gravity offered by a spare tire water tank rather than the wheel well water tanks.

We’ve been using this water tank for almost a year now and just love how much water we can carry around. We use it mostly for wash water for showers and dishes, and carry two 5-gallon jugs for filtered drinking water.

Wilderness Vans Awning-Style Windows

Looking out of my windows in Mexico

Sprinter van windows are tough to decide on, but we went with Wilderness vans windows. We love the awning-style windows that come with bug screens and blackout shades. We installed a total of four of these windows in our van, including two small ones on our back doors.

We love that Wilderness Vans windows are curved to fit the shape of the van, unlike Arctic Tern windows.

Sprinter Van Window Shades by VanMade Gear

Window shades by VanMade Gear

I can’t say enough good things about these insulated window shades by VanMade Gear. We purchased one for the front windshield and one each for our driver’s and passenger windows. These shades block out tons of heat from entering the vehicle, and use either magnets or the front sun visors to stay in place.

VanMade Gear’s window shades fold up for easy storage and come in either black or reflective exteriors. We chose black so we could be more stealth when camping in cities.

Flarespace Flares and Bed System

We just love our Flarespace flares and bed system in our Sprinter van. This allows us to sleep sideways, maximizing the amount of living space in our van. We did a Flarespace DIY install.

Additional Sprinter Van Parts to Consider
