The $10,000 Mercedes Sprinter Stealth Camper has security cameras, a kitchen, and a bathroom

It includes some thoughtful custom touches that would make the homeowner jealous.

When it’s parked on the street, you wouldn’t know this vehicle is a stealth camper. From the outside, it looks like a regular white truck, the kind used by plumbers, electricians and delivery drivers around the world. But inside, it features a fully equipped living space with kitchen and bathroom.

The truck is a 2004 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with 229,000 miles. Incredibly, it was built for less than $10,000. On his tour Dualex Sharrieff Fareed’s YouTube channel shows us every inch of the conversion process, which includes some clever touches to the cozy living space.

Inside, the truck has a full kitchen with running water. At the back is an entertainment area that turns into a bedroom. The cab is largely stock except for the screen that shows the back and sides of the truck, which is very useful when driving. The camera system also acts as a security system to monitor the truck while it is parked.

One unique feature is that the passenger seat rotates around the workstation. Behind it, a desk slides out of the cabinet and opens, creating plenty of space for a laptop and other essential equipment for remote work. When closed, it adds counter space to the kitchen.

The kitchen area includes features that would make some homeowners jealous. Custom cabinets provide plenty of storage space, including a drawer for utensils. The propane stove has a glass top to cover it when not in use, which adds to your counter space. The small sink includes a cutting board cover and drying rack. Adjacent to the sliding door is a cupboard that doubles as a mud cupboard and includes a pull-out trash can.

Learning from his previous designs, Fred added additional insulation and improved the truck’s ventilation. The floor includes an inch and a half of foam insulation as well as a plywood subfloor. The walls and ceiling were covered in an inch and a half of insulation which made an immediate difference in the interior temperature of the truck while it was being built.

Although it’s not as large as the Izuzu or Mitsubishi Fuso box van we’ve seen recently, the design is quite clever and makes the most of limited space. If anything, its smaller size is more convenient, making it smaller to park and easier to hide in plain sight.
