We've had 2 Sprinter RV's, a 2008 & '13. You do VERY MUCH need to worry about where to get it worked on. Both of ours have had multiple trips to Mercedes, 40 miles away, and Freightliner, 35 miles, dealers to get chassis issues fixed.
Also, you can't just go in anywhere and get an oil change. Non standard, not available just anywhere, warranty required European 229.51 spec motor oil. And the filters usually have to be ordered in also.
VERY expensive repairs after warranty too. Warranty, 3yr/36k on chassis stuff, 5yr/100k on engine. Can't idle them any more than absolutely necessary either or all kinds of emissions issues will result requiring a dealer visit.
We're on our last Sprinter....

We're on our last Sprinter....
Hmmmmm.... again. Well, now we're leaning back toward the Workhorse.
And if we find that "perfect-for-us" coach this fall, we just may purchase it. Thought we'd wait til spring, but maybe not ....

this unit was a piece of junk. things constantly falling apart. just stapled together. The ford chassis was great,m no problems ran super. but the coachman house was cheap and poor quality

It has twin beds which we do enjoy.. none of the newer ones has the deep drawer cabinets...we tow a jeep and never know its behind us...
