Window Covers: Mercedes Sprinter Van 2007-2018
*Please read through the entire description before ordering so we can get your specific configuration correct. Few Sprinter vans are completely the same and we try to offer a variety of the most popular options as well as answer most of our customer's questions throughout the description.
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, Grey, Olive, 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.
*The grey fabric can look different in low light vs sunlight. The grey can have a green hue in certain lights and can often be mistaken for the olive drab, but olive drab is much darker than the grey. Grey will be the closest match to the factory plastic trim panels, but definitely can look slightly green. Email us if you'd like to receive fabric samples before ordering.
Handcrafted in Santa Cruz, Ca by us, not outsourced. Current production time is 6-8 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 8 weeks out, but smaller orders might get sewn in a batch and turned out sooner. Storage bags are included on all orders.
"Full-Kit": Includes the Windshield, Front Doors, Slider Door, "Crew Window"(window behind the driver seat) and Rear Doors. Additional Items: Fan Covers, Half-sliders and the Flip-Up Vent option are additional features and are NOT included in the Full-Kit.
Front Doors: Check to see if you have GRAB HANDLES or not. All 4x4's have them, but please make sure to select the correct item. There is a photo in the gallery with a red arrow pointing out the grab handle. They require a different door pattern with a cut-out for the handle and they can be installed with the door closed.
Flip-Up Vent Option: If you have a CRL T-Vent window installed on the slider door or crew window location, we make a partial flip-up section that allows the vent to be accessed with the top 2/3's of the cover installed to the wall. Choose the "Add-On- Flip-Up for Vent" to your cart for EACH window that you would like the flip-up added to.
Fan Covers & Half-Sliders: 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"and Hehr (RB Components) 10x36" windows. 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).
Custom Builds: If your van has custom wall paneling that does not leave the painted metal wall exposed within 3-4" around the Crew or Slider window, leave a note at checkout. There are essentially two different options: #1: Fabric is glued to the metal and covers up to the rubber gasket on the factory glass or aluminum CRL frame, we will use stronger magnets to account for the loss of polarity and the cover will still fit over the frame and to the wall. OR #2: Wall paneling boxes in the aluminum CRL frame and we make a cover to fit the frame and send steel strips, like the Half-Sliders.
144" Passenger Vans: If you have a passenger van with the plastic trim on the walls, our magnetic covers will still work, but they require a stronger set of magnets. Select "144" Passenger Van Rear Side Windows" in addition to the other covers that you need. This ONLY includes the two large rear-side windows behind the slider door and behind the crew window only, not the rear doors. By selecting this, we will automatically add the larger magnets to the slider and crew windows to account for the plastic trim. All other windows take the normal strength magnets. *Some folks have removed the factory glass and installed CRL T-Vents. If so, just add the "Flip-Up" option for the Crew or Slider and make a note at checkout that it is for the Rear Side Driver-Side or Rear Side Passenger-Side glass.
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, crew, slider and rear doors fold down to a bag that is roughly 8"W x 30"H x 6"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 52 nickel-plated rare earth block magnets that have a pull strength of over 7 pounds each. We use around 30 magnets in a set of rear door covers. They are very powerful.
