    On account of I'm a short arse, we need cab grab handles for our Merc Sprinter based MH. Having trouble finding them online. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    forgot to say, my wife is vertically challenged so she uses a seatbelt extender plugged into the passenger seatbelt clip to hold onto to pull herself up into the cab. may sound clumsy but it works perfectly.

    as she gets out the seatbelt extender is left on the seat so its in easy reach through the open door. when traveling she uses the extender to allow her to lean forward and reach the dashboard or floor without having to unclip first

    Dawn, its not about finding grab handles, it's about fitting them. You would have to ensure that threaded holes are already in place behind the edge of the roof-lining. If they are, that's fine, but be warned, a couple of self tapping screws would not hold your, (nor anyone else's), weight if you had to grab hold in an emergency. Check to see if tapped and threaded holes are there, measure the centres, then source handles accordingly, probably the builder would be the best bet. ::bigsmile:

    The caps are there covering the holes, just no handles
