Sprinter Motorhome in the Making, Part 2!

The Savannah Cabinet Shop is exploring the world of recreational vehicle customization and bringing our own brand of style, beauty and exceptional craftsmanship with us. Our Sprinter customization project is designed to show off the flexibility of our services and the ingenuity, creativity and precision of our design knowledge and implementation, while exploring a niche market we feel could use an aesthetic upgrade. The design of our Sprinter conversion van is an exercise in combining simplicity and flexibility. The materials are a combination or durability, practicality and luxury.

The Cork flooring not only adds elegance and aesthetic movement to the space but is durable, sustainable and naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Cork also absorbs sound and shock, creating a quieter atmosphere and a softer feel under tired feet.

The cabinet doors, wall panel inserts, and bed platform are made of a Teak and Holly plywood. Along with its beauty, Teak is naturally weather resistant. The natural oils present in Teak make it termite and pest proof. The beautiful white of the Holly wood adds unexpected visual interest as a natural foil to the rich brown of the Teak.

The Corian® countertop provides the look of natural stone and glass embedded in concrete without the weight and maintenance. Corian® is easy to clean and because it is nonporous, stains do not penetrate the surface. Corian® resists the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria and is one of the few countertop materials that can be easily repaired. Shallow cuts, stains and burns can be sanded out and the sheen returned with a Corian® specific cleaner.

The paneling behind the kitchenette and the inserts in the coffered ceiling are a metal veneered laminate in a brushed light bronze aluminum finish. This surface adds glamour and is easily cleaned. The decorative metal surface also makes the most of the Sprinters’ windows, allowing light to reflect and bounce throughout the cabin.

The curtain dividers are made of a PVC oilcloth in a gold lace design to add a funky flare and touch of whimsy. This fabric is waterproof and fade, stain, and soil resistant.

The couch and bed cushions along with the throw pillows are covered in a woven indoor/outdoor fabric in both geometric patterns and bold solid colors. This fabric is resistant to mold, mildew and fading allowing for years of use.

We look forward to begining the installation process. Check back for updates on the project’s status and pictures of our work in progress.
