Westcadia 144 Features & Pricing
If you have a high roof Sprinter Van, or plan to purchase one to convert, then let us do the work for you and get you on the road. Our model of the 144 Mercedes Sprinter conversion has a layout similar to a Westfalia, but with much more room, and a higher build quality. We’ve flipped the galley layout so you can look out the large sliding door while cooking, and access the pullout fridge from inside and out. This model carries 4 and sleeps two.
We’ve added convenience and efficiency by only using 12V diesel appliances - so you only have to fill your fuel tank and you’re good to go! The Victron Lithium power system is charged by solar, and the engine’s alternator, with options for shore power connections, to keep you charged on the go; we’ve kept it small, but easily expandable.
Then we just added some fun: an IPE on aluminum back deck, roof rack, and side ladder, with ability to carry two/four surfboards, or two kayaks, on the side of the van.
The conversion has a host of features for the weekend warrior including:
