There are countless ways to suit your new (or future) sprinter van to your needs and style. Mounting a roof rack for storage and a solar panel would feel like low-hanging fruit in this application, as would hanging a well-designed ladder for access or in-dash navigation (it’s not like Rand McNally is a viable option any longer). We’re interested in less obvious items for this list as CoachWest runs down the best sprinter van accessories for 2023.

Top 5 Sprinter Van Accessories
1. MoonShade portable awning
The perfect option for shade and cover without drilling holes in your vehicle. MoonShade has several different anchoring systems, including magnets, suction cups, and roof rack attachments. It’s incredibly simple to set up, provides more than 60 square feet of coverage, and folds down to about the size of a bagged camping chair. MoonShade costs just under $400. Add around $50 depending on the attachments you choose. Tip: The magnets are worth it.
2. Kitchenette with sink and stovetop
The convenience of a small sink and stovetop can’t be overstated. Kitchenette profiles keep getting slimmer, and stovetops are easy to install and run. Induction stoves are gaining popularity in sprinter van applications. Though they take a ton of energy, induction stoves come with some benefits—no gas needed, easy to install and operate. A backup solution for those without the space for a kitchenette is a cargo box kitchen with a slide-out sink and stovetop.
3. Driver’s row seat swivel bases
A front row that swivels creates additional usable space when parked and gives your co-pilot easy maneuverability to access back-seat cargo (snacks) while on the move. A high-quality base costs $400-600, with a low profile and a smooth swivel. Less expensive options are on the market, but you tend to get what you pay for—and nobody wants a seat to wobble, tilt, or squeak.
4. Magnetic door screens
Something you don’t know you needed until you have them. Keep the elements (and bugs) out while you want the breeze to keep flowing. Screens attach to your vehicle with magnets at the rear or sliding doors. Some styles offer privacy in place of airflow. Depending on your style preference, they can cost $420 or $800 apiece.
5. Folding Shower
Have a full shower inside your van, then fold the shower away into a small flush mount box. Tetravan has developed an incredible interior shower that takes very little space and less than a minute to assemble.
