Window Covers: RAM Promaster Van
Current production time is about 4-6 weeks.
Made to add privacy while camping and to help regulate the temperature inside your van. Using water-resistant ripstop nylon (will not trap condensation like natural fibers will), Low-E insulation (aluminum creates a thermal barrier) and high quality rare neodymium magnets, these insulated window covers create a clean and stealth appearance. All covers are magnetic (besides the windshield) and install in seconds. They will not move or fall down, even while driving. Now offering five color choices: Silver, Foliage, Coal, Navy and Black. Black fabric always faces out, but you choose in the interior-facing color. The insulation we use allows us to keep the black fabric on the exterior, you can read about the insulation below.
Handcrafted in Santa Cruz, Ca, by us, not outsourced. Current production time is about 6 weeks. All sales are generally produced in the order that they're received, but we often make small batches of similar orders. Full-Kits are about 6 weeks out, but smaller orders might get sewn in a batch and turned out sooner. Storage bags are included on all orders.
Colors: Fabric swatches are free, just email us your shipping address. It's very difficult to accurately depict fabric colors on screens or monitors and each roll of fabric can be from a different dye lot, which can have slight variances that are out of our control. Colors are show in the photo from lightest to darkest: Silver, Foliage, Coal, Navy and Black. Silver: lightest and brightest. Foliage: medium shade, light green-grey. Coal: darker grey with a nice warm hue. Navy: not too dark, but blends well with most interior colors. Black: as stated, just like your coffee should be.
"Full-Kit": Includes the Windshield, Front Doors, Slider Door, and Rear Doors. If you have the driver-side window (behind the driver's seat), then add the "Crew Window" to your order. We don't include the Crew in the Full-Kit because it's a rather rare option. If you do not have the Slider door glass, then you'll need to add each window selection to the cart individually. Additional Items: Fan Covers, Half-sliders and the Flip-Up Vent option are additional features and are not included in the Full-Kit.
Fan Covers, Half-Sliders and Awning-style: They all come with instructions to install thin steel strips on the backside of the fan trim piece via 3M VHB clear adhesive tape. They do not interfere with the trim piece sitting flush against any roof surface. The covers have eight large magnets sewn in and attach to the outside of the plastic trim. Will fit both Maxxair and Fantastic Fans. Half-Sliders: We make them for the CRL 10x33", Motion 10x36", and Hehr (RB Components) 10x36" windows. Awning-style CRL 10x33"+ windows are now available (the bottom tips out as opposed to the half sliders that slide horizontally). They too need the steel strips added in between the screw heads on the aluminum frame. We will send the steel strips backed with the VHB tape. You will need a pair of tin-snips or strapping cutters to easily trim the steel strips to fit in between the screw heads. The covers can also be left in place and folded forward in half to access the vented portion (they are held in half magnetically).
CRL Vented Windows: If you have a CR Laurence T-Vent window installed we make a partial flip-up section that allows the vent to be accessed with the top 2/3's of the cover in place over the glass (slider and "crew" only). If you have the CRL slider door T-Vent, simply add the "Flip-Up for Vent: Slider Door" option to your order. If you have the CRL T-Vent in the "Crew" position (behind the driver's seat), select the "Flip-Up for Vent: Crew Window" option. *Note: If you have any tweed or fabric covering the metal up to aluminum frame, please leave a note at checkout because they require stronger magnets. If your "Crew Window" is boxed in with custom wall paneling (wall paneling up against the aluminum frame), leave a note at checkout. We can make a cover to fit the frame and send steel strips, like the Half-Sliders.
*Made for North American Cargo Vans, not the Passenger Vans with plastic trim.
Storage: Stitch lines are horizontal on the rear doors so you can fold them partially down. All other windows have vertical stitch lines for support and to decrease their size when stowing away. A set of front doors, slider and rear doors fold down to a bag that is roughly 8"W x 30"H x 5"D.
Ripstop Nylon: Nylon fabric with polyurethane coating with DWR. Urethane coating gives water resistance and paired with the Low-E, the covers will not trap condensation. No mold or rot like natural fibers will (mudcloth, cotton, or duck canvas).
Low-E insulation: USA-made, mold-proof and waterproof, light weight, non-toxic, no fiberglass, great thermal performance and manufactured using a polyethylene foam core with reinforced double sided aluminum facings. Creates an excellent thermal barrier. See how they rate their insulation performance and learn about Low-E.
Rare earth magnets: We use high quality grade 42 nickel-plated rare earth block magnets that have a pull strength of over 6 pounds each. We use around 30 magnets in a set of rear door covers. They are very powerful.
