ClimateCore Insulated PODS Sprinter 144 Extended Depth

ClimateCore Insulated PODS Sprinter 144 Extended Depth

Combine travelling in a van with having a great nights sleep! Introducing our latest innovation, the ClimateCore PODS - meticulously designed to provide an outstanding R5 Insulation Value. We understand the dedication our clients put into enhancing the comfort of their vans through insulation. Neglecting to insulate the area where you sleep simply doesn't make sense. It's not only about retaining warmth but also about shielding yourself from the scorching heat of the sun. Don't miss out on this opportunity to elevate your van life experience to a whole new level of coziness and climate control.

Sprinters are measuring 72” window to window and most adults need a few more inches to be able to sleep comfortably. Our fibreglass Pods are a pair of window extension installed on the rear quarter panels of a Sprinter van, increasing its width. Our insulated Extended Depth Pods will make it possible to build a 80” long bed and at the same time maximize your interior camper space. 

The 144 Extended Depth Pod set will give you a 80" (203cm) long bed. The driver’s side pod is extended and the passenger’s side pod is a regular depth. They are available with or without window, we offer cutout and window installation for additional cost. We do not recommend the use of an awning style window on the passenger side of the 144 wheelbase pod.

There is a space of 3/4" (20mm) between the sliding door and the passenger's side Pod to make sure the door will slide freely with snow or ice build up. The exterior surface must be protected from UV rays with bed liner, paint or a vinyl wrap.

The flat exterior surface makes it possible to use windows up to 46” x 20” (116x50cm). The window cutout can be done using a jigsaw and a fine tooth blade.

The specifically formulated gel coat is use as a sanding substrate for automotive parts that will be subsequently painted.

Choose between DIY finish, INDY coated or custom painted to match your vehicle, for an hassle free, ready to install product.

Protection & colour options

  • DIY Finish (No Protection)

    Choose this option only if you will be finishing the POD yourself. The Backland ClimateCore PODS must be finished with either paint, vinyl wrap or bed liner. Backland provides all of these options, including a Mercedes colour match.

  • Colour Match Paint

    Choose this option to have your Backland ClimateCore PODS painted to match your Mercedes factory paint. We can also provide custom colours upon request.

    (Note: Because paint changes over time, we cannot guarantee a perfect colour match)

  • Full INDY Protection: Entire Exterior

    Our most popular choice! Choose this option to have our trademark black urethane INDY protective coating applied to the entire exterior of your PODS for a great off-road look. This finish offers unmatched protection, requires very little maintenance, and costs less!

  • Colour Match Paint + Stone INDY Protection

    Choose this option to provide the best protection of your ClimateCore PODS with a beautiful colour match finish. This option includes INDY coating on the front and bottom, protecting the extended surface from rock chips. It is then painted with a colour match paint specially formulated for this application.
