Benefits of a tire carrier for your campervan
There are multiple reasons why you would want a tire carrier for your Sprinter or Crafter campervan. One of the first is that you might want to put bigger tires on your van. The dedicated space for your spare wheel underneath the van won’t be big enough so you need another location for your wheel. Besides positioning the spare wheel elsewhere leaves more room underneath the van for water or auxiliary fuel tanks. Furthermore, when you are off-roading or just in a gnarly position and you pop your tire you might not be able to access your spare wheel underneath the van. Putting the wheel on the tire carrier makes it much more accessible in most cases.

180-degree doors: The tire carrier is attached to the hinges and connected to the door below the Mercedes emblem.
The wheel bolts on the tire carrier using steel or alloy wheel bolts. You can add these to your tire carrier order if you do not have the bolts yet.

Orders will be shipped by either pallet or parcel depending on the product and/or order size. Certain products are only shipped by pallet. Adding such a product to your order will automatically mean a pallet shipping price will be calculated at checkout.
Parcel shipping prices are calculated per product as most products are very large and can not be combined into one parcel. Large orders of only parcel products may still be shipped on pallets for better shipping efficiency.
