FAQ

Are you really 8 weeks out?

Yes, we really are! We will update the website with a new time if this changes.

Do you have any covers in stock?

We have nothing in stock, all items are currently made to order. The only exception is fan covers, those we can usually get out within a week or so.

What windshield style do I need?

Good question. If you have just a rear view mirror attached to the glass by a stalk, we call that the regular windshield. We make just a very small teardrop shaped cutout to go right around the mirror.

If you have a box behind your rear view mirror, or only a box and no mirror, you’ll want to get either the large or small technology box cutout. The large is greater than 10” across, the small is only 5.5” across. Refer to the pictures below.

If you have absolutely nothing on your windshield we can make you a windshield cover with no cutout, just make a note of this in the notes field when checking out.

If you have something not listed here get in touch and send us a picture!

Do I have grab handles?

The grab handles on the cabin doors that we need to know about are down low on the door, kind of in front of the side mirror, but on the interior. They are standard only in 4×4 Sprinters.

Will your magnets work with the stock plastic molding in passenger van?

Yes, as long as we know you have a passenger van we will put extra large magnets in the passenger rear quarter panels and the crew window (behind the driver) covers. We do this whenever we see an order for the passenger rear quarter panels come through. If you don’t order those, but have a passenger van just make a note in the notes field when you order. If you have a 170 with plastic molding please just make a note in the notes field about that. If you have plastic molding around the rear doors get in touch with us about solutions, even our strongest magnets won’t work in those covers.

What type of insulation do you use?

We use ESP’s Low-E Insulation™ for all of our insulation. It is closed cell foam covered in a true aluminum coating whereas the knock-offs on Amazon are coated with weak mylar. Closed cell foam does not offers and our Low-E Insulation™ is made in the USA.

Where is the reflective surface on your shades?

We put our reflective insulation between two layers of high-quality ripstop nylon. We believe this hits the sweet spot of providing good radiant qualities while also maintaining durability of our window covers.

What is the R-value of the insulation you use?

The r-value of Low-E insulation can be up to 11. However, one of the benefits of Low-E Insulation is that it stops about 97% of radiant energy. You can read more about the benefits of radiant heat blocking here.

Do your window covers roll or fold up?

Yes! Most of our window covers fold up accordion style and they come with straps and snaps so you can leave them in place to see outside the window. The windshield and cabin door window covers fold up for storage, but they can’t be folded up and left in place like our other window covers. Our bed panel window covers fold horizontally to see outside.
