Sprinter Back Country Camping

We just sold our 40' diesel coach and want to buy a coach for back country camping - gravel and forest service roads.

Will a sprinter motorhome do this

They have 4X4 versions that will handle it fine.

4x4 Sprinters are only available on the 2500, non-dually, used on some B's, but no C's built on that chassis. Check out Sportmobile if that is what you are looking for...

Beg to differ - Winnebago Era comes in a 3500 4x4 'dually' chassis. Don't know about others, but they keep popping up in searches.

https://winnebagoind.com/products/cl...9/era/overview

There are listings online for new Coachmen Galleria 24 units with 4x4, but no pictures yet. Presumably they also have dually rears since all the other MB 24's in their lineup are.

Looks like Airstream also has their Interstate available in 4x4.

If i were doing back country camping i would go with a different chassis like a super C 4x4 way more capacity to tow and haul..the sprinter 3500 rv's with the 4x4 doesnt have much..there are a couple of View's out there..

We camp in National Forest camps and primitive camps frequently/ all the time with our View. It is not 4x4 and honestly I don't see the need for that. If I'm going where only a Jeep 4x4 will go I would toss in a tent and forget about a RV. A few months back we went to a place I kayaked when younger beside a beautiful river. Back then it was rutted, barely gravel road, today they have paved it and made dry camp spots along the river, designated, with gravel pads, no hooks. I suppose if you are flush with cash and fit into it the new Boldt by WGO might help with MSRP around $200k.


Be more aware of the electrical constraints of dry camp/boondock than 4x4 or off road needs. You can drive a Sprinter almost anywhere in 2X mode, anywhere I want to go. You always will need a solution to electrical needs, compressor refrigerators can be a challenge, is the solar good, generator run time; much more important as well as tank size and dump availability with fresh water nearby.

A Sprinter will do it, but you are pretty limited due to having a 30 gallon FW tanks and small black / gray tanks. We ha a 2017 MBS and it just got too small for extended rips. Other than that, nice rig.
