Shot at Van Compass in Post Falls, Idaho, the video is to be posted to social media next week.

Van Compass upfits the suspension on Ram Promaster, MB Sprinter and Ford Transit 4X4 vans to improve on- and off-road capabilities.

“We sat down with Mark Hoffer, the founder of Van Compass, to go over what he likes about the SumoSprings product,” SuperSprings Director of Marketing Adam Weisner says. “Without reading from a script, he did a great job of describing how SumoSprings improve performance for their upfit vans.”

“It was a solid endorsement of our product,” he says.

The video is being edited at SuperSprings this week and will be posted to the company’s Instagram and LinkedIn pages by early next week, Weisner says.

Based in Carpinteria, Calif., SuperSprings markets suspension products from its popular SumoSprings coil springs and coil inserts to bump stops, installation tools and mounting kits, Weisner says. It's suspension products are fitted to Winnebago's Travato Type B vans, he adds.
