    Cool UK Supplier of Crafter LWB Flares, soon also MWB Flares - Black Rock Outfitters

    Come across this seller based in the UK selling flares that they have manufactured themselves, I was soon about to place my order with flarespace, but prefer EU, I have asked the seller if they will ship to Finland, and if the sliding door still is able to open fully.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sprinter-...rk:92:razz:f:0

    I'm unsure at this time if the 495 is for a pair, or if its 495 each.

    My flares from BlackRockOutfitters, or should I say sleeping pods, well, they have arrived, but not quite what I expected, I guess you get what you paid for, they have sustained some damage on the corners during shipping, but I can repair these.


    The rear surface area that bonds to the van is quite narrow, only allowing a single thick bead of calk sealant. If this wasn't enough, those edges which should be bang on, straight, they are warped too.

    I agree!
    I have the Summit flares fitted and they are awesome!
    The fit is perfect and the design is so in keeping with the design of the new shape crafted they look like they could have come from the factory.

    Have you got photos of the Summit flares fitted?
    Is yours a MWB or LWB van?

    My introduction
    Currently looking into building a Crafter into a practical and comfortable camper van. Been driving some VWs in the past, is now time to switch from Transit conversion to German quality. Any exchange about the process would be great....what else?!

    That is no introduction you have posted in the wrong section.

    It just shows how bothered you are.
