What’s the Best Solution for the Passenger above-seat or overhead gaps in the ceiling of a mercedes sprinter?

One common challenge that van owners face is how to address the gaps in the ceiling above the passenger seats or overhead areas. These gaps, caused by the design of the B pillars, can disrupt the overall aesthetics of the custom van build. In this blog, we will explore the best solutions to tackle these gaps and create a seamless and visually appealing interior in your Mercedes Sprinter. From trim kits to audio solutions, we'll discuss options that can transform your van into a comfortable and stylish haven.


What’s the Best solution for the Passenger Above-seat or Overhead gaps in the Ceiling of a Mercedes Sprinter?


The B pillars in the Mercedes Sprinter van can create gaps in the ceiling above the passenger seats. These gaps not only detract from the overall visual appeal but can also impact insulation and soundproofing efforts. B pillar trim kits and D pillar trim kits are specially designed solutions that bridge these gaps and create a seamless transition between the pillars and the ceiling. These trim kits are made from automotive grade ABS Plastic and are custom fit for the Sprinter van as far back as 2007, ensuring a professional and polished appearance.

What is the best way to cover Factory Foam Blobs in the Sprinter?


These foam blobs can be covered by our sprinter van interior kits, in particular, the B pillar trim kit. If you're looking to add a touch of entertainment to your Mercedes Sprinter, consider installing a B pillar audio kit that covers these thresholds and adds sound to the back of the van. These kits not only help address the gaps in the ceiling but also provide an opportunity to upgrade your sound system. We typically use a Garmin tread Amp to link these with our 3.5” Infinity Speakers. With carefully positioned speakers integrated into the trim kits, you can enjoy high-quality audio throughout your van. Whether you're embarking on long road trips or using your Sprinter for mobile work, an audio kit can enhance the overall experience for you and your passengers.
