I am leaning towards the custom Sprinter customization option. Something with a combo rear gear/washroom area like the OutsideVan Earthromper2. Something with a more open interior without any tall cabinets, large queen sized bed/dinette, diesel heat/generator, compost toilet (no black water) and larger water/grey tanks:

From what I have read I may have issues using a US conversion company which is probably fine... Outside Van do not respond to my enquiries anyways. I found Get Away RV Centre Ltd. in British Columbia can do the customizations that I want and they are doing some interesting work, like using local Vancouver diesel air/water/coolant units. They also didn't seem to be scared away when I asked about having some ceiling/wall sections in aluminum sheeting instead of plastic or fabric.
What I am finding is that most Class B conversions from the large companies are designed for retirees or for people who drive from hotel to hotel. They often have tacked on lower body kits or steps and the interiors are terrible outdated. They also just don't have the flexible use that I am looking for and they are way to "RV" looking.
And yes we can definitely buy the various versions of the Sprinter vans in Canada (or I could import one from the States if it is cheaper and worth the hassle).
