Hello,

I am looking at buying a Class C sprinter based RV, but I would really love 4 wheel drive as I wold like to do some winter RVing. I know about White Feather conversions, but the reviews are horrible. I was wondering if anyone knows of a company doing 4x4 conversions using the sprinter 4x4 components so it would be closer to a stock sprinter 4x4 than a complete custom job.

Thank you

Off the top of my head 'Sportsmobile' and 'Outside Vans' did 4x4 build conversions, but I have no idea on the process on getting it done.

I use my RV all year long but limit the times to day trips and short overnighters so I can watch the weather.
As you already know, road salt takes it's toll on vehicles, avoid it if you can. Over the years I learned that potholes,frost heaves,the rv weight plus rust made a few parts go snap-n-pop.

I ran an outside hot water line off a winter valve in order to use an oscillating lawn sprinkler under the vehicles as a chassis wash. I try to wash off as much as possible.

Yeah, they only make the class B vans with factory 4x4. MB doesn’t offer a 4x4 chassis cab to class C builders.

We have the IVECO Daily 4x4, that is a much cheaper" Unimog" and becoming popular with Van and Expedition builders BUT You do not get it in the US

How about a Winnebago Revel ?
It's a factory 4x4.

Much much too small. I have three dogs and a cat, plus I like to take a lot of gear.

I don't know how big you need or what your price range but here's a Gemini based on the Ford Transit with either diesel or gas. Add a Quigley 4x4 conversion and you're at around $100,000. I don't know if you are 100% set on a Sprinter, but the Transit is pretty comparable other than a 700 lb lower GVWR.
