Well, we're a bit biased on them, but I think you will love it.

Keep us posted on its' arrival, and your families' reaction.

Inaugural trip: I am planning a surpise trip by flying the four of us, my wife and two kids up to pick it up and then driving it back down to Florida over theyre spring break. I am still trying to figure out how I am going to tell them to pack they're bags and go to the airport with no idea of where they are going.

Sounds like a great plan!

Have fun, and will look for you on the road.

When I had my Interstate the servicing was done at the local Dodge dealer. Are the MB dealers able to service these vehicles now?. jim

Some. Not all Mercedes dealers are equipped to work on Sprinters. For example, the New Orleans dealer doesn't, because he still hasn't built a repair bay big enough for to handle one, but the Baton Rouge Mercedes dealer can. Until he has the oversized repair bay, Mercedes won't authorize the New Orleans dealer to sell Sprinters. Part of my research before buying a Sprinter-based class B was to check on this.

Basically, if the Mercedes dealer sells Sprinters, they service Sprinters. If they don't sell them, they don't work on them, either.

Don't expect former Dodge or Freightliner Sprinter dealers to necessarily service Mercedes Sprinters, either. When Mercedes took over the imprint, they made some changes to the van that could trip up mechanics only familiar with the older models.

We have always taken ours (Mercedes diesel) to Peterbilt for routine maintenance, and they have done a great job.

Booo!

Have you tried a Credit Union?

We had good luck refinancing ours from Thor to a Credit Union a couple of years ago, dropping the interest rate by quite a bit.

Good luck.

Never heard of Peterbilt working on Sprinters; might you mean Freightliner?

No, I really do mean Peterbilt.

In Bloomington, Illinois. We have taken ours their since first purchased in 07. I would think they would all be the same?

We bought new tires a couple of years ago, and deal with those/get rotations elsewhere, but Peterbilt does all the routine maintenance for us.

Mine's still under warranty, so I'm sticking with Mercedes Benz for now. Once the warranty expires, I'll be shopping around for other sources of quality repair and maintenance work. Hadn't really considered that Peterbilt or other 18-wheeler dealers would do that type of work on other companies' products. You have just increased my research workload, but in a good way.

We've been very happy with Peterbilt and trust their work. They are also very user-friendly, answering questions and giving guidance over the phone on occasion.
