Day Trip Sprinter Tailgater®
Creative Mobile Interiors (CMI) recently delivered a custom Sprinter to a family looking for ultimate comfort and fun. The Mercedes Sprinter van was built to please many, whether for long road trips or Saturday tailgates. The 24-foot vehicle began as a 2011 170” Extended cargo van, but ended as a slick, classy entertainer on wheels. CMI added luxury essentials including 2 LED TVs, ultra-leather seating, a bathroom, and much more.
The audio/visual system in this road-trip-machine includes a ceiling mounted (motorized flip-down) 32-inch LED TV, a cabinet mounted 32-inch LED TV, along with a rear stereo featuring six speakers and an enclosed subwoofer. In conjunction with the new back-up camera/DVD/CD/MP3/GPS/BlueTooth in-dash stereo, each person has a choice of what to watch and listen to via their wireless headphones. However, for the big game, the audio can thump through the 9-speaker (total) system for all to experience. The televisions can provide entertainment from one of three sources: an In-Motion satellite system, the in-dash DVD player, and a Playstation3.
Behind the driver and passenger seats there are four high-end ultra-leather captain’s chairs that recline and are mounted on swivel bases. These cushy seats each have integrated seatbelts for added safety and clutter-free looks. These same comfortable seats were added to the driver’s area as well. The rear living space features a removable table, custom-built and located in the center of the captain's chairs to create a perfect meeting place to play games, eat, or even conduct business. Directly behind the four captain’s chairs is a custom three person J-sofa in the rear of the passenger side. Adjoining the sofa is a bathroom, the ultimate amenity while traveling or tailgating. This lavatory contains a toilet and storage counter/cabinet for the essentials. Beside and forward from the lavatory is a cabinet with plenty of storage, the Playstation3, and a refrigerator for sandwiches, drinks, and more.
Gracing the top of the cabinetry are cool, under-lit Corian countertops that add a beautiful, custom touch. This same Corian is used to cap the sidewall-integrated aviator tables that flip out for use by three of the four rear captain’s chairs. The cool but cozy color scheme continues throughout with charcoal laminates, light gray padded sidewalls and ceiling, cool-white LED lighting, and two-tone charcoal/silver seating. That modern atmosphere is amped up by an edge-lit, rich-red valance running down both sides of the vehicle adding a bit of spice and energy.
Other vehicle amenities include a custom-built closet area behind the bathroom and accessible from the rear of the vehicle. Above the closet and rear storage area is the auxiliary AC/heat system for the passenger inhabiting the rear. Outside of the Sprinter, the exterior shines in a metallic silver finish and is nicely equipped with integrated ground effects/running boards.
