Sprinters without a rear step bumper can be difficult to access through the rear entry doors. This step bolts onto the factory receiver hitch without impeding it's use. This is a high clearance step that features no loss of ground clearance all while providing an extra level of protection from inconsiderate drivers who like to get too close to our vans when parking in tight spots.

I should have purchased long ago. This is saving my knees. I installed on my 170” 4x4. Fitment was perfect. Instructions were excellent. Shipping was super fast. Price is very reasonable considering what you are getting and compared to so many other companies that overcharge because it’s a specialty item. Van Compass has earned my business. Don’t hesitate to get this step. The hitch still works and actually looks nicer because the ugly stuff is covered.

Perfect Fit, Easy Install

This step fit perfectly right out of the box. I set aside 2 hours to do the install since most parts take 4x what's listed in instructions. This took less than 20 minutes and no fiddling 'round with unexpected modifications.

I use the surplus time to stumble across another nice tight tolerance: a 12oz IPA can on the step is safe by 8mm from a rear doors opening. If not an engineered feature , it could be!

Excellent customer Service and great product

Mark was very helpful and fair in helping get the step bumper shipped up to Alaska. Quick response time to my inquiry, easy to work with and fast order fulfillment. The install was quick and easy, with excellent written and online video instructions. I'm pretty sure it took me longer to grab the tools than to install it. The step makes a huge difference for getting in and out of the back of the van, it looks great and as a bonus, it is just visible in the backup camera, where the stock bumper was difficult to see, so now I have a better reference for bumper location when backing up. Very happy with this purchase and Van Compass. Thanks!

Better than I thought

Well built, well designed, easy install. Looks better than the pictures. Another great product from Van Compass. Very sturdy and worth the money...also great for accessing the rear ladder if you have one.

Pleasantly Surprised

Got tired of stepping on my hitch to get into the rear of my Sprinter so I bought this step hoping for the best. Well was I pleasantly surprised. This step is great, strong, attractive and well fitted. The construction is strong and thick metal which is perfectly power coated. The package arrived well protected and packaged with instructions that were close to perfect. I love this step.

The only non positive comment I have is that the instructions indicate installing the step will take 15-30 minutes. In a perfect world that would probably be correct. My installation, although pretty straightforward, took about an hour because I did this without a lift and everything didn't line up properly at first. Had to use a lot, and I mean a lot, of torque to get the all of the bolt hole lined up to accept the bolts. Other than that the install was simple.

Love this step. Highly recommended.
