I am just getting back to posting the Weekend Edition after returning from the NTEA Work Truck Show, when this shows up in our in-box. Our very own Tanshanomi suggested that we feature it since he really liked it, and truth be told, I do as well. There are very few of these Sprinter Cab & Chassis models imported, and most of them have a box body attached to them. Blake even ran a posting about Flatbeds, so let’s explore this
Dodge Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with a Flatbed.
This particular Sprinter was the one with the 5 Cylinder 2.7L Turbo Diesel with a Mercedes 5-speed Automatic, and with proper maintenance is virtually bulletproof. According to the listing:
One owner lease return from Texas, no accidents, 12×7 foot aluminum bed, low miles (87,978), 22 miles per gallon, 2 near new front tires, Graphite Gray exterior.
This truck is an 11,000# GVW Truck, and the Aluminum Bed weighs practically nothing, and if I’m correctly remember, this will haul close to 3 Tons of cargo. The asking price for this machine is $19,980, which I think is a bit rich (especially since it needs 4 rear tires), but what do you think? See the dealer listing here.
