This Mercedes Sprinter camper van has been practically laid out to give you an awesome fixed double bed at one end, sofa seating and optional third birth in the middle, and a stunning shaker style kitchen at the other end. Combined with masses of storage in the form of overhead cupboards and a large garage area, Mabel is perfect for a family-friendly camper van holiday.
Mabel blends effortless style with loads of super practical storage and functionality. The kitchen feels just like cooking at home with a three-burner hob and oven. You could cook up a full Sunday dinner in there if you wanted to! You’ve also got a fridge and a freezer onboard, so stick a bottle of something cold in the fridge, go out and have an adventure, then come back to snuggle up in Mabel and watch the sun set as you chill out on the comfy sofas.
Mabel is ready to give you a complete home away from home on wheels vibe, as she has a diesel heater for colder nights, running hot water, a TV and DVD player for snuggly film nights, and a portable toilet as an optional extra. She’ll make you feel so much at home; you might not want to give her back! She feels super airy and spacious with clean white walls and light furnishings. The cleverly designed storage means you never feel cluttered or crowded, there’s definitely enough room for the whole family and everything you could possibly want to bring along for an awesome camper van holiday.

Conversion StoryMabel was converted by me, Tom, at Escape Campervan Conversions Ltd. It took me a total time of 16 working days (and nights) to get this van finished as it was started straight on the back of a conversion i did for a customer and needed to be finished in time for Camp Quirky 2019, where we then headed off on a 4 week trip around Europe.
The trip was nothing short of amazing and the practicality of huge kitchen area and stupid amounts of storage space made the trip so much more comfortable. Now its time for others enjoy her like we have!
