When you chance upon a new sprinter van for sale in Utah, make haste and snap it up. These top range vehicles go beyond the traditional definition of a trailer when filling your transportation needs. When you need them for work or as a family car, you won’t be disappointed.
Lots of Versatility
It’s easy to dismiss the idea of a van as a family car, but it has lots of space inside. That means you have lots of versatile space to do with as you wish. For instance, there are sprinter models that measure 274.1 inches, stand at 110 inches, and are 95.5 inches wide.

If you’re looking for a workhorse, you can dispense with the seat and converts all that space into a cargo holding area. Depending on the model you pick, you can have up to 530 cubic feet cargo volume and a payload of more than 5,000 pounds.
Increased Towing Capabilities

That means you get lots of pulling power whenever you need to haul a trailer, caravan, or horse box. With a medium-sized van, you can tow as much as 2.5 tons. Due to their higher maximum rear axle weights, some large trailers can have towing capacities in the neighborhood of 3.5 tons.
With a Mercedes Benz Sprinter van, your towing capacity ranges from 5,000 to 7,500 pounds. That means you can carry your crew and equipment all in one trip when heading to an offsite job. If going for a family holiday, you can tow that boat or jet-skis without breaking a sweat.
In addition to the copious amounts of space available, a van lets your passenger access their seats with easily. Depending on the model, you might have one or twin sliding doors in addition to the rear doors. That’s especially useful when traveling with small children. You won’t have to fold over seats to access the back of the car, which can make kids quite irritable.
For families with members who get around on a wheelchair, a van is spacious enough to handle the chair without sacrificing comfort. The sliding door lets install a custom ramp for easy access. For work purposes, the sliding door makes for easy loading and offloading in a tricky situation where you can’t back up the ride. It also means that you can fit in tight spaces available in most parking bays without restricting access.
