The Sprinter 4x4 is marketed as bounding over sand dunes and wilderness - more than I'd ever dare do in a unibody vehicle. But it's certainly not limited to gravel roads. To poo-hoo it like that is a bit disingenuous.
Hope everyone joins us at Hershey. My Facebook group is having a meetup on Friday at the show and go and look at the B's. Everyone is welcome to join us.
I only linked to the article. I did not write the article and do not have an opinion on it.
The article clearly says the 4x4 Sprinter Expedition is , according to this engineer (not me), suitable only for the dirt road into the campground.
I'll re-post it for your convenience:
"...With the Era already in its lineup, the Era 4x4 was just a matter of getting the 4x4 option from Mercedes. Winnebago advertises the new model as its first Sprinter-based off-road RV, but an engineer admitted to us that the model is designed more for road driving. It appears to be well-equipped for all-weather highway driving and light off-roading, like navigating the dirt road to the campground, but it falls well short of a more serious off-roading expedition van..."
Did you read the article??? See the above link I posted.
