Hi everyone. I recently sold my much loved Jayco Sterling and purchased a 2014 Mercedes Sprinter motorhome. I never thought I would, but I've fallen in love with it. The one huge problem that I have is........I can't buy a set of headlight covers for it....anywhere, not even at Mercedes Benz (they don't make them). So, can anyone direct me in the right direction, or have any advice on the matter at all.

Thanks. ps. new Profile photo coming soon.

Don't worry too much about the covers...there is another way ...which...IMO...a better one.
Just go to a good auto accessory outlet (Autobarn is a good one)...and buy a universal set of Lightskinz (spelling??). These are a bit fiddly to install (altho I have never had any probs)...but will beat the harder light protectors hands down...plus...they allow more light output thru them as well.
Just follow the instructions on the packet...except for the bit that says install them on wet glass....not easy hey. I just cleaned lens properly ...warmed the skins up and stuck em on ...working from middle out in a circle. Is easier with light out of vehicle ....but that also depends on how hard that is.

HTH.

Cheers Keith

covers anyhow

I've rented both Mercedes Sprinter and VW Crafter for extended periods.

The Mercedes is a nice little rig, user-friendly, easy to drive, good on fuel.

The VW on the other hand, was a nightmare of badly-identified controls and warnings (2 large owner manuals covers it all, though, apparently!), the auto transmission was the most backward, sluggish thing I've ever driven (and I've driven a lot of cars and trucks), the engine was thirsty, the build quality was poor - and I don't really care if I ever hop into any VW product, ever again.

The Merc, though, would be on my preferred drive list, any time.

Cheers, Ron.

Thanks for your message Ron, it certainly confirmed that I'd made a good decision. After having a caravan for many years, it's not a decision I made lightly. I also hired a VW Crafter for a few days before I made my decision, and I'm with you, the Merc leaves it for dead.

All the best and thanks for taking the time to make contact.
