A great number of people now give preference for utility vans and commercial vehicles. The capacity is bigger and the traveling comfort is superb. For many whose budget would not be enough for brand new vans, they opt for the used sprinter vans. And why not go for the vehicle? The used sprinter vans have many features comparable if not better than other counterparts.
This van is manufactured by Mercedes-Benz for Dodge. The first model was out in the market in 2003; updated in 2007 and more changes in 2009. The sprinter vans are powered by 3.0 liter V-6 turbo diesel (the 3.5L gasoline engine phased out in 2009) engine. The doors are two fronts, sliding passenger and swing out rear doors.
The used sprinter vans come as passenger and cargo vans. The passenger vans are of the 2500 series while the cargo vans are either 2500 series or 3500 series. These models are now powered by turbo diesel. The gasoline powered models were phased out in 2009.

Features of the Used Dodge Sprinter Rv
This is considered a motor-home which combines good size and efficiency. Instead of buying a new Sprinter Rv, the second hand or used sprinter Rv is recommended for those who are after great savings without compromising comfort and good ride. Most used vehicles are properly maintained. Motor-homes like the Dodge Sprinter Rv are very expensive so purchasing a used one which has been properly taken care of is a good idea. However, finding a used motor-home with all the specifications and features that you want will be a difficult task. The brand new ones can have upgraded features but may really cost a big fortune.
Used Sprinter Vans are good investments. Although classified second-hand, they are properly maintained and are still in the best running condition. However, the used ones may not have the outstanding feature of the brand-new and later models. Many used Sprinter /vans are still available in the vehicles market. Although they are already used, their price calls for higher budget.
