High-performance shock absorbers for Mercedes-Benz Sprinter motorhomes (906, 907, 910)

February 13, 2024 3 min read

As an efficient and reliable van, the Mercedes Sprinter is also popular as the basis for motorhomes and camper vans. However, the driving performance can be significantly optimized with special shock absorbers. With the BILSTEIN B6 Camper shock absorber, Sprinter fans can get the most out of their Sprinter (906, 907, 910).

With various body variants available, including different wheelbases and heights, the Sprinter offers potential for a wide range of conversions. The quality of materials and workmanship in the interior of the Sprinter are also of a high standard. And with its solid chassis, the Mercedes Sprinter is ideally suited as a basis for camper vans and motorhomes.

Mercedes Sprinter: Standard suspension offers room for improvement

Despite all the advantages of the Sprinter as a basic vehicle, there is always room for improvement. Especially when it comes to handling. After all, many campers complain about a lack of travel comfort, poor stability or annoying noises on long vacation trips. No wonder: on bad roads, on bends and at level crossings, the shock absorbers of motorhomes have to work hard to dampen the vibrations of the vehicle so that a pleasant driving experience is maintained.

Special shock absorbers with extra damping force for Mercedes Sprinter 906, 907 and 910

With the B6 Camper, BILSTEIN has developed special shock absorbers that significantly improve the driving comfort and safety of motorhomes and campervans. The special shock absorbers are now also available for motorhomes based on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter for the 906, 907 and 910 series. Previously, the new product line launched on the market in 2022 was available for motorhomes and campervans based on the Fiat Ducato (from model year 2006) and identical vehicles from Citroën, Peugeot and Opel.

High-performance shock absorbers for Sprinter motorhomes and campervans

The BILSTEIN B6 Camper is a high-performance shock absorber for all Sprinter drivers who want both more driving comfort and increased stability. Compared to the original shock absorber, the BILSTEIN B6 Camper improves the overall handling of Sprinter camper vans and motorhomes.

To achieve this, the damping properties were extensively adjusted to the parameters of motorhomes in the legendary BILSTEIN road test. These are usually packed to the payload limit, have a higher centre of gravity and carry heavy external loads, such as bicycle racks. All this takes a toll on the suspension.

BILSTEIN B6 Camper: The shock absorber for motorhomes

Now the improved Camper OE replacement shock absorber BILSTEIN B6 Camper can show its extra damping force. Thanks to optimal road grip, motorhome drivers benefit from a high degree of stability and a more intense driving experience in crosswinds and on bends due to high traction and precise handling.

At the same time, the passengers can look forward to a more comfortable driving experience after a shock absorber upgrade: The reduction of driving noise through better damping contributes to this just as much as the optimised rolling behaviour on cobblestones or at level crossings.

The BILSTEIN Camper shock absorbers can be installed easily and without registration by vehicle professionals in the workshop – at a reasonable price. The installation effort is no higher than with conventional shock absorbers. By the time campers notice sloppy handling or reduced ride comfort in their vehicle, if not sooner, it is advisable to think about upgrading the shock absorbers to enjoy even more driving fun, safety and comfort on the next trip.
