Would this system work on our 2016 sprinter chassis? I haven't seen this brand mentioned in other discussions. A store has advertised this on clearance. It's for commercial trucks and RVs and made by Mobile Awareness.

I don't see any reason these wouldn't work.

That being said, it seems like a pretty expensive system with a very limited number of dealers. I found listings for 4, 6, and 8 tire systems...but no mention of, say, a 10 tire system if you wanted to monitor both the RV and a toad. Such a system might also require some sort of transmission booster for the toad.

Personally, I'd probably go with a brand with wider distribution and (one hopes) somewhat lower prices.

I like the fact it is internal rather than external. Seven year battery life is nice.

Of note, on our 2012 Sprinter, the wheels have a tight shape around the valve stem holes. I had difficulty finding metal valve stems that would work with the Sprinter wheels. The issue wasn’t the hole diameter, but the width of the gap for the nut holding the valve stem in place. I would suggest calling them and asking specifically about compatibility with Sprinter wheels.

This was listed on a local facebook buy sell group in Rapid City SD at a camper business. New in the box with 8 sensors, monitor, and repeater for $100. A really good deal if it works for our sprinter.

OH! Well that sounds very reasonable! (Prices I was seeing online were like $800!) Anyway the only other question might be whether you can get two more sensors (if you have a toad...)

Good luck!

I decided to pass. Contacted the company and the product is no longer being sold. TST 507 seems to be the popular brand on this forum.
