What a game changer! I’m 6’2” and Capsules made it possible for my bed to be widthwise in my van. That saves 20-24” of living space! Rather than matching my van’s paint ($$$), I went to a local truck bed coating shop and it was ready that evening. Easy to install and they look great! Best purchase for my van. A game changer!
I recently purchased the Sprinter Side Steps and I couldn't be happier with the value they've added to our van. As someone who loves van adventures, these steps have significantly enhanced our experience.
Ease of Access and Safety: The steps have made getting in and out of the van much easier and safer, which is a huge plus. Whether we're parked at a scenic spot or just loading up for a trip, the convenience and safety these steps provide cannot be overstated.
Effortless Installation: I was pleasantly surprised by how easy these steps were to install. The process was straightforward and didn't require any specialized tools or skills, making it accessible even for those who aren't mechanically inclined.
Aesthetic Appeal: Beyond functionality, these side steps have also added a sleek and stylish look to our van. They blend seamlessly with the van's design, enhancing its overall visual aesthetic.
In conclusion, the Sprinter Side Steps from The Van Mart are a fantastic investment for any van enthusiast. They've transformed the way we use our van, making each journey more enjoyable and hassle-free. Highly recommend!
I wanted some protection for my under carriage on my 2023 Entegra Launch 4x4, but didn’t want to add a lot of weight. I also wanted a bolt on solution with no modifications to the OEM Mercedes chassis. I found this VanSpeed product by seeing Orange13’s YouTube video. I liked the product and decided to buy it in safety orange. Ordering and shipping were seamless. Install was pretty straightforward using Orange13’s YouTube video. I used some aluminum sheet to blackout the logo cutout to provide additional protection to the second alternator on my van. I think the overall appearance on my van looks awesome. I would highly recommend this product, in any color.
These little struts fit and work so well they seem like they should be a Mercedes stock item. The install took about 5-10min. And was very straightforward.
I missed the part about this being for 2019 and up. But it fit my 2014 perfectly.
If you still hesitate you can just go blindly and buy the capsule, the look is incredible, the finish and details are crazy good, for tall people you can sleep side by side and the customer service is more than excellent.
I really want to mentioned that point (excellent customer service) because it is important to me, the first capsule I received arrived with a little chip in the corner and vanspeed has been super reactive and sent me a new one right away. They are very nice people and they will try hard to fix the issue quickly.
Like I already said go for the capsule. Thank you very much to the team 👍
I ordered the capsules approximately 3.5 weeks ago. They took about 2.5 weeks to get here. I took them to a local body shop to get painted and already picked them back up today. I test fit the capsules to the van and test fit my slider windows as well. The fit was extremely good. I am happy I chose these over some of the competitors out there as they have more room and excellent workmanship. I look forward to installing them this weekend.
These are easily modified to make work with the extended length transit (handheld planer and orbital sander make it easy). Quality is superb and they look fantastic. We are very happy with the extra 6" of bed length that they provide and plan to use them again on our next van build!
This kit is aa awesome addition to my van. Wish I had ordered them months ago. Brackets are built to last !
On the drivers side the nerf bar was a bit long and hit my ladder but nothing a little trimming couldn't fix. So far very satisfied with them and makes it WAY easier to get into my Agile Offroad upgrade. Had to get a running start before to get in Bluto.
This Pedal Control is awesome and performs as described. Like having sport mode on the Sprinter. Theft deterrent setting is nice to have for peace of mind.
Opted for pickup instead of shipping.
Install was incredibly easy. Literally just undid some OEM bolts and put in some new ones. I installed this with some Baja Designs lights.
Only bummer is my cruise control sometimes doesn’t work - I think because of the bumper. But I’m going to do some trouble shooting to see if the positioning of the lights can fix that.
Install went good,definitely need sharp,new bits.took a few rest breaks but I’m 82 so us old guys still can get it done.
I just installed these side steps on my Sprinter 170. I am very impressed with the look and design, as well as the quality of the materials. They are rock solid when I step on them, which was not the case with the running boards I installed on my previous van build. It took about a month from order to delivery, but I think it was worth the wait.
The cushions on my Sprinter rear galley build stuck out about 1/2" from the cabinet and I need something to mount my Lagun leg too. The Vanspeed Spacer was perfect. Great fit and finish!
Pretty happy with this investment. Mule works well and enabled moving the tire to the back door for a water tank install.
Not designed for the Transit EXT 148 but with a little orbital sanding it works great. I'd put difficulty at 3 out of 5. Once the edges are good, use 100% of the urethane caulk provided, it worked great! Lovin that extra space.
We purchased the Sprinter side steps form van mart and they look great. They were easy to install ( did it myself) and the price was very reasonable. I would buy them again and do recommend them to anyone looking for Sprinter side steps.
We don’t do any serious off-roading in our Sprinter 4x4, but we do take it on some fairly rough forest service roads on occasion. I also have been searching for a way to provide some protection to the engine components from road salt etc, But, not having a way to lift the van, I’ve been searching for something that was easy to install, and did require any grinding or drilling. This skid plate seems to fit the bill. The shipping time was fast and the packaging was outstanding. Like others have said - there are no installation instructions included - which is a bummer. But I had watched a video on YouTube, and that, coupled with studying the one photograph they give you of the skid plate, was enough to get it installed. The components are well made. While it is a bit of struggle installing this without lifting the van, it is doable. It’s just close quarters at times. My only real difficulty came with trying to align the holes where the front plate joins the back plate, but eventually I was able to jiggle and maneuver everything in place. I am very happy with the look of the skid plate. It should offer some impact protection and also keep the engine components protected from road salt, etc. I have not yet been able to tell if it helps with road noise, or with MPG. But theoretically both are possibilities.
I purchased a digital rear camera mirror which required a stock mirror to fit to. This was very easy to install and did the trick!
I’ve been using the fuel angel now for a couple of months I probably have 20 to 25 fill ups now it’s
piece of mine, knowing that I can leave the the wife to fill up it’s not all puppy dogs and rainbows. You do need to hang on to the fuel nozzle, and the only other thing is you can’t fill up at a truckstop pump they’re way too big I do have a peace of mind, knowing that we will not be putting gas in a diesel. I had some difficulty in installing it, but customer service was right on it with me, thanks it’s nice to know the customer services is alive and well
