A Drive-Everyday Motorhome on the Mercedes "Short" Sprinter
The Roadtrek SS-Agile is based on the all new 144 inch wheelbase Sprinter 2500 van. At only 19-1/2 feet long, the SS (“Short Sprinter”) is perfect for those who want a vehicle that’s really as easy to use everyday as a large crossover or conversion van but one that offers all the conveniences of a fully-equipped motorhome – and delivers awesome fuel economy!
The 144 inch wheelbase Sprinter van has the same specifications as the 170 inch wheelbase van used for our RS (“Regular Sprinter”) model except the body and interior length are 40 inches shorter, overall length is 19 feet 5 inches, turning radius is 7 feet smaller and the weight ratings are lower.
Inside you’ll find a great passenger vehicle for five within a fully-equipped class B that sleeps two. There is comfortable forward facing seating for five with the two front captain seats and rear electric power sofa seating three. Just aft of the driver seat is a 59 inch long galley with eye-catching granite counter, recessed European-style propane stove with glass cover, under-mounted stainless steel sink, 3.8 cubic feet three-way refrigerator, convection / microwave oven and optional coffee maker.
Opposite the galley and aft of the entry behind the front passenger seat is a permanent bathroom. Its unique doors allow ample aisle width when the bathroom’s not in use. But when in use the doors allow extra space inside while keeping the aisle clear. Inside the bathroom you’ll find a marine toilet, vanity sink that slides out over the toilet, and sit-down shower (or stand-up for smaller people).
Like other models, the rear sofa easily converts to a king-size bed or twin-like beds (we say “twin-like” since they are separated beside your legs only when you’re sleeping). The driver side is 6 feet 4 inches long, the passenger side 6 feet long.
The SS models provide an unrivaled combination of use-every-day driving and parking ease with the conveniences of a fully-equipped motorhome. Compact exterior size… fantastic fuel economy… comfortable seating for five... interior openness and livability… and all the features of a typical motorhome. Its possible uses are endless! Add the proven popularity of the Mercedes Sprinter and you’ve got another winner from Roadtrek!
