Has anybody made or had made, padded arm rests for the door side on the Mercedes sprinter seats.

Any advice or help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for that Paul.

I was thinking of something that would sit over the window blind runner.

My effort so far, it slides onto the window blind channel.

It can slide backward or forward to any position.

It is very comfortable and just the right height for resting your arm when driving.

Can anybody tell me how I can cover this in a material to match the seats.

On the cushions there should be a label with the manufacturer name , my WXL upholstery was by Premier furnishings, I bought a few square yard of them after phoning them

I used a piece of 15mm pipe lagging foam laid on the window frame. When finished with it, stowed it on the shelf above the visors

Well done Wandering Dave. That's much better than my small offcut I had to work with, before setting off on a trip across France. I may well copy you now!

With regard to covering it, it might be easier to choose a fabric to match the door, although as FreelanderUK said, the company who supply Autosleepers are very helpful.

I see you have the new soft upholstery in your Bourton. I wasn't allowed to have this when I placed my order, as they had too much of the upholstery in the old material in stock!
