New 2019 Sprinter

Hi All,

Does anyone have info (other than the general pics on google), on the new sprinter? Specifically, do we know when the RV manufacturers will have them ready?

Itd be great to know the RV-oriented changes that the new sprinter will have. Slide out? Wider interior? Power? Solar technology? Etc.

Thx!

Howdy,
The Sprinter part of a motor home consists of the frame and motor unit, along with the other components to make it drive and handle. The coach is installed by the manufacturer who decides what to add as features. Slides, solar, bed orientation and accessories are options that are added by each company. Many brands look similar but approach their layout in their own fashion.



The Sprinter part of the unit is the heart that makes it go. The diesel power plant has the ability to make it go anywhere while still getting decent mileage.



Determine how you would use it, i.e. are you taking children along, do you plan on driving a lot or just camping in your favorite locations, do you boon dock where you need solar and a generator, etc. Look over the various manufacturer's layouts and see what fits.



My wife and I don't travel with children so a two person sleeping arrangement worked best for us. Lots of inside storage allows us to travel between seasons (warm to cold in 2 weeks) by bringing changes of wardrobe and blankets. Think about what you would like and then start looking to see how it all fits into your wishes. Good Luck.

First off, the chassis has to undergo US certification. That’s EPA and all the safety guys. Then they have to be manufactured which might be at SC Mercedes plant. The earliest you might see a motorhomes on the new chassis is 2020.

Mercedes only delivers a cutaway van chassis, all that other stuff is the coach builders responsibility.

Well in the case of class C motorhomes luvlabs is right on. However in the class B coaches the entiire body is Mercedes-Benz and my Winnebago Era chassis and body were built in Stuttgart, Germany. The interior and exterior coach features were fitted at Winnebago and the vin number was updated to indicate that Winnebago was the manufacturer. In most cases the chassis will be a year older than the year of origin for the coach, for instance my M-B is a 2015 Sprinter but the coach is a 2016 model Winnenago Era. It depends on which chassis the RV manufacturer buys to outfit the cab chassis or the cargo van chassis.

We have a 2019 Dynamax Isata 3 Series 24' Class C on a 2017 Sprinter Chassis. You can find a date tag on the bottom of the driver's seat or along the door frame. The VIN number define the make and model details.

The OCCC could, if Mercedes sells the unit with the higher GVWR be much higher. This could be huge. Like 1200 lbs extra. This would allow a larger coach, maybe a 30 foot. Or keep 25 and have two full wall slides.

From what I have read, there are no plans to manufacture cab/chassis vehicles at the new West Charleston, SC plant. Currently all cab/chassis are made at two different plants in Germany. Vans and "busses" (MB term for window van with seats) are built in Germany, Argentina, China, and eventually West Charleston. T1N models are still built in Russia.

2019 Sprinter

My understanding is for Leisure Travel Vans the M-B Sprinter chassis for 2019 will not arrive in Winkler, MB CA, until about May of 2019, production beginning about June 1st of 2019 being built as 2020 LTV's on the 2019 Sprinter chassis. M-B will not deliver the chassis before this time.

For example, my 2019 LTV Unity will be built on a 2018 Sprinter, the first of which were delivered to LTV only two months ago. Mine is due for delivery in September.

So, I am guessing the same is true for all the 2019 Sprinter chassis' for RV manufacturers, delivery in May of 2019.

I hope this makes sense....

I read recently that due to Amazon and others buying so many MB Sprinters, that MB has decided to build them in SC. Not sure where I saw that. Also, found this link elsewhere on irv2: Mercedes-Benz is Ditching Diesel in the U.S. - The Drive
Read the fine print "except Sprinters".

I just found out that Tiffin is beginning to build on the Sprinter 2019 chassis next week and have decided to go straight to their 2020 models.


Also, the backup camera and the navigation sytem is supplied by Mercedes, but initially, there won't be a side camera option, and the accordian style window shades will be available at a later date.



Otherwise, many of the safety features are included on the new chassis. The seats are supplied by Mercedes, will be leather and both driver and passenger will be electric seats with heat.


It sounds like supply of the new chassis is not a problem and will be the only chassis they will be building on now.
