Sprinter 2019 and 2020 VS30 Chassis

As many of you already know in 2019 the newest body Sprinter van (VS30 model) was released. This is a reminder that many RV's that are a 2019 RV model year may very well be built on a 2018 Sprinter chassis year, which is a different chassis. This can affect many parts you order for your 2019 RV if you order as if you have a 2019 chassis. Your chassis may be and probably will be a 2018 Sprinter chassis. You will most likely want to order any Sprinter related parts for a 2018 Sprinter and any RV specific parts for a 2019 RV model year.

We can take look at your vin number or you can look at the headlight photos below. The quickest way to tell the difference is the headlight styling. The 2018 will have the taller headlight assembly and the 2019 and 2020's have the lower profile headlight assembly.

We saw this back in 2007 when Mercedes switched over to the then new 2007 Sprinter Chassis (NCV3 model). Many RV's with the RV model year of 2007 were built on the 2006 chassis (T1N model). In fact due to the slow down around 2008 some RV model years were reaching into 2008 and maybe even 2009, and they were still being built on 2006 chassis year Sprinters.This created some parts issues as people ordered parts based on the RV model year. 

RV manufacturers have different model years and designs, just like a car manufacturer does. Each new year  RV model can bring new floor plans, updates and upgrades over the last year RV model. RV companies buy up a lot of vehicle chassis made by the vehicle manufacturer, and then build them out as an RV. It takes time to build an RV.  A vehicle chassis purchased in 2018 will generally get built out as a 2019 RV model and you will enjoy all the RV updates for that year RV even though you have a chassis one year behind. 

Normally this will make little to no difference at all unless there is a body change as there was in 2007 and now again in 2019. Whichever year RV or chassis you end up with, we hope you have a great time with it and get it out there to enjoy it.

We hope to see you on the road!

There is also a partial list below of parts and accessories currently available for the VS30. This list is meant as a quick update as of 8/30/19 - new products will be added to the website so some may not show up here.

DTE PedalBox for Sprinters

We have added the DTE Systems Pedal Box to our line of Sprinter products. This is an easy to install plug and play system that optimizes throttle performance by optimizing the throttle sensors signal going to the engine control module. This will help the vehicle to reach the wide open throttle position much quicker and therefore realizing the true power potential much sooner. The  Sprinter Pedal Box reduces the travel necessary in your accelerator pedal to reach full throttle response and has multiple setting to allow a truly custom throttle tune.

In years past the Bowden cable or throttle cable was used to mechanically connect your accelerator pedal to your fuel delivery system.The Sprinters accelerator pedal position is read by a sensor that then sends a signal that tells the fuel delivery system what to do. This type of system is know as Drive by Wire.

Drive by wire systems are tuned for the standard driver and standard vehicle. The PedalBox will allow you to custom tune the throttle response. Some manufacturers offer similar functions as the PedalBox built into the vehicle via settings like Sport Mode, etc.

Made in Germany.

For off road use in US and Canada.

Please click here to purchase the PedalBox, find installation instructions and liability information.
