Is there a motorized version?
Not that we know of at this moment. The current model must be pushed by foot to be revealed or to be put back into place.
Where does it actually go when it is retracted?
It goes under the bumper to maximize the room available and it has fewer opportunities for injuring or hurting other people who may not notice it. Otherwise, a passerby may run into the item.
The product is designed for people who ride in the back of the van, correct?
That is correct. It can help people who have trouble exiting the back of the van do so safely.
How much weight can this step handle?
This step can handle up to 400 lbs.
What is the surface of the step?
The surface of the step is a textured non-skid surface.
I have a tow hitch... Can I keep that and use this step with my hitch?
Unfortunately, no. The step will be in the way of the hitch.
What else should I know?
If you have a factory bumper on your Sprinter vehicle then you will need a custom installation.
