Default Van Specialties installed bed and hitch on/in my new 144 Crew

Simple install but solid and timely work done by Van Specialties.
Hitch w/lights wiring and 3 piece bed install.

They installed vent, hitch and awning in my last Sprinter about 6 years ago and I'm glad to report same great service and quality of work this time around.

I'm looking forward adding more performance, utility and comfort upgrades and additions to my rig using these guys.

We had Van Specialties do a complete conversion on our 2011 Sprinter last fall and they did a superb job…and we felt their cost was reasonable.

Up next from VS is Fantastic fan install and headliner to replace crew passenger OE and maybe roof rail/channels. ...and possibly aux battery. Rob and VS in general super great to work with :)

*on aux battery install I might go w/Upscale. John fixed a stereo/alarm elec issue in my '06 158 that I had taken to several others to fix. He not only fixed but also installed aux battery (w/fab'd battery mount under passenger seat) w/inverter that never let me down in nearly 300k of hard camping/bike demo/outdoor event/dirt bike trip/partying miles.

It's great to be within stones thrown of awesome Sprinter van specialist!

Van Specialties did the conversion on our 2008, 144" four years ago and we now have 43,000 miles on it. We are very happy customers of this company. They not only do great work, they stand behind it too. For example, today I went to see them because the sink drain plug at the bottom of the van was broken and unusable. They not only removed and replaced the broken parts on the spot, they did it for free. Now I know this was probably no big deal for them, but for me it was fantastic. Van Specialties gets 5 stars in my book for the good work, customer service and support. Way to go VS!!

0n 18 July 2014, Van Specialties installed a three-panel platform bed in our 2014 144" passenger van. It was a breeze. Very happy.
