Bilstein extends B6 Camper product range

Shock absorber expert Bilstein has supplemented its B6 Camper product range with specially adjusted dampers for motorhomes and camper vans based on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

Bilstein says the B6 Camper high-performance shock absorbers significantly improve handling of the van suspension, which originally had been designed for different loads.

To this end, the damping properties were extensively adjusted to the parameters of motorhomes in road tests on the premises of ATP Automotive Testing Papenburg in Germany. These are usually packed to the payload limit, have a higher centre of gravity and other protrusions or wheel bases.

When using special dampers, the optimum grip results in increased safety in crosswinds and bends as well as a more intense driving experience due to high traction and precise handling.

At the same time, Bilstein says campers 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 and at level crossings.

The new product line launched in 2022 was previously available for motorhomes based on the Fiat Ducato (from model year 2006) and identical vehicles from Citroen, Peugeot and Opel.

Bilstein adds that its extended product range for more recent Sprinters from model series 906 to 910 with front-wheel drive offers workshops the opportunity for even more additional business.

According to Bilstein, its camper shock absorbers can be installed easily and without registration by vehicle professionals at a reasonable price. The installation effort is the same as for conventional shock absorbers.
