One of Sportsmobile’s most popular product lines is the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4. The 4×4 option offers the expedition and adventure traveler a great platform. The Sprinter 4×4 opens up a new realm of possibilities for the weekend warrior looking to get a little further off the beaten path. The Sprinter is available with a 4×4 high/low configuration in both the 144” and 170” wheelbase models. The 4×4 option offers a 35/65 front-to-rear power ratio while the low-range adds a 40% gear reduction, with a corresponding increase of torque to the wheels. The Sprinter 4×4 comes equipped with the highest performance power-train option currently offered in the U.S. Sprinter: the 3.0-liter BlueTec V-6, which produces 188 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The van is raised 4.3 inches in the front and 3.1 inches in the back giving it 20% greater slope climbing ability.

Free Spirits Nick & Micah
We came across a Sportsmobile van soon after we got married and we both knew then that this setup was something we wanted. That was years ago now! The design of our van has been a multi-year project that went a number of changes. But what never changed was that we wanted a platform that had enough storage space for our gear was off-the-grid ready and most importantly offered the 4×4 capability that could take us off the pavement and into the wild.

Aside from waking up in beautiful locations and having the outdoors easily accessible, we saw a lot more perks—it was also an opportunity to spend more time with friends and loved ones we don’t get to see often. We are photographers and shoot in locations that would otherwise be hard to get to and find hidden gems that haven’t yet been crowded with tourists or Instagrammers. These are actually my favorite places to live and shoot in: the off-the-grid land owned by the Bureau of Land Management that may be unnamed and unmapped but is just as gorgeous (if not more) than more popular areas.
The biggest plus for us, though, has been living a simpler, less cluttered life. It’s a very freeing feeling to know that everything I need or want fits inside our tiny home on wheels.
