Running Boards

Anyone find an aftermarket company that manufactures running boards specific to our vans? I came across this company but they're pricey & don't seem to have many ProMaster accessories in stock. Anyone here deal with these guys before?

Ok, underwhelmed by the responses. How 'bout these guys? Any experience dealing with them?

Judging by the photos of the Paul Sherry conversion Promaster I would guess they are using standard conversion van running boards instead of ones made for the Promaster: http://paulsherryconversionvans.com/...conversion-van

So instead of searching for running boards for the promaster just search for running boards for conversion vans.

Hello everyone! My name is Brian and I am from Paul Sherry Conversion Vans.

The running boards that we use are from the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. It's a perfect fit and they're very sturdy.

What I meant was 100 inch long running boards for both sides. I have sliding doors on both passenger and driver side. You can get a shorter board for the driver side if u do not have a slider on that side.

I tried adapting a set of power retractable ones from Amp Research but I gave up. I'm hoping they'll be building a set for a our vans.

One of the design features that attracted me to ProMaster is the low floor height.

But I also like to have good ground clearance.

Running boards can make it difficult to slide underneath a van. Took the extruded aluminum running boards off my Club Wagon the day after I brought it home. They made it next to impossible to even look under the van just to inspect things, let alone slide under to accomplish any repairs.

Prefer the cast aluminum 'coach' steps.
