The NEW Owl Ladder + Tire Carrier for Sprinter vans is the seamless integration of two great products into one rack. No longer do you need to mount a separate ladder off the side of the van, dragging in the wind. Or maybe you want two ladders for two people to load large items on the roof. Regardless of your need, the Ladder + Tire Carrier is a simple all in one solution. The Owl Ladder + Tire Carrier installs in minutes. Access your roof easily and get your spare tire out from under the van.
There are two types of hinges on the new 2019+ Sprinter, 180˚ and 270˚. Only the 180˚ hinges have holes to mount our carriers from the factory. If you have 270˚ hinges, you will need to select 180° hinges from the drop-down menu below. We sell these at our wholesale cost and powder coat them black to match Owl Carriers. Storyteller Vans have 180˚ hinges.
