Paddy: Mercedes Sprinter 4X4, 140WB

Paddy was built for a design-loving couple and their two dogs. This van was made for short to medium, year-round trips. Paddy is super-comfortable while still maximizing space. A clever and practical modern design with a nod to van heritage. Paddy’s cabinets were customized for the couple’s belongings. A hydraulic bed lifts to reveal the dining area.
