What are the dimensions of the Mercedes Sprinter (2018-on)?

Example of a Sprinter

Are you looking for that one specific measurement? For example the load area length for LWB? I've got it right here for you.

I'm working on my own panel van conversion, and I found that It's pretty hard to find the dimensions of just about any van. It's all over the place. That's why I've created this article. This page will be helpful when you're converting a van into a camper van, or when you're planning the layout for your new corporate van.

Can you stand up in a Mercedes Sprinter Van?

Standing up in an empty van

The interior roof height of a Mercedes Sprinter is 1719mm (H1) - 1976mm (H2) - 2243mm (H3) .
If you are of medium height (178cm or 5"10') you can't stand up in a Mercedes Sprinter H1. But you can stand up in a Mercedes Sprinter H2 and up.

What happens if I insulate the van?

Are you planning on insulating and cladding the floor and roof? In that case you can't stand up fully in a Sprinter H1. But you would still be able to stand up in a H2 model and up.

What's a Sprinter Van high top?

Mercedes provides their Sprinter Vans with both high and low tops. High tops are elevated roofs to provide more headroom. Generally, everything above H2 is considered a high top, and should offer sufficient space to stand up fully.
