Mobile Barber Shop Sprinter Van
We had a lot of fun turning this 4x4 Extended Mercedes Sprinter into a completely custom mobile barber shop. CMI worked with this customer who is based out of New York to transform her van into a luxurious salon on wheels. Next in line for a cut? Have a seat in the glamorous waiting area complete with a custom-built mini bar, color-changing LED light strips, a 22'' LED TV, and aviator table if you need a workstation. A state-of-the-art audiovisual system was installed and features new speakers throughout, AppleTV, and a 40'' LED TV which automatically lifts into the partition between the driver's area and is perfectly viewable from the barber's chair. No need to worry about a hairy mess, there's an air compressor and central vac system on board to ensure an effortless cleanup. The air compressor even doubles as an airbrush system for women's makeup. The driver's area was also upgraded with a new Kenwood head unit, accent kit and carpet, and custom Ultraleather captain's chairs. Along with installing custom flooring and fabricating storage cabinets for supplies, CMI installed a diesel-fired Espar Hydronic heater which provides hot water to the sink and heat for the rear cabin. A towel warmer provides a comforting end to your stylish cut. An electric awning and exterior sound system were also installed for when the line to get a cut stretches out the door! How to tell if the shop is open? An electric barber's pole, of course, conveniently located on the exterior and removable for storage. Finally, getting a haircut just got easier, and much more enjoyable.
