    I went to the Mercedes website and tried to build an OTR ready sprinter van but there were bo options for adding a sleeper. The full size Sprinter came to about 56K. In my trucking sector there are a lot of loads of 2 pallets or less and my wife is sick of climbing in and out of the Volvo and would love to be able to access the rest of the world outside of truck stops. Do you know where if anywhere you can by a Sprinter equipped for OTR?

    Maybe two short pallets fit hand stacked since it wont be loaded from a dock lol, i doubt the freight would pay for fuel.

    We run DOD and some loads are one ammo box in a 53’ dry van.

    Shouldn't be hard to find someone to build a sleeper in it. Ask on the expediters forum here on TTR.
