Our story

How it all started

Founder Pete Staniforth and his wife bought a semi converted camper and set about putting their own stamp on it. The learning curve was steep, and the project was a real labour of love, but they managed to complete the self-build project and enjoyed the process so much, they formed a business idea and a product concept that would shape their future.

Vanshades was formed in 2015., offering real choice to the customer with a product range built for the custom camper enthusiast and professional converters who want to offer their customers a stylish privacy solution whilst saving installation time.

Our screen covers and Window Pods are available in a wide choice of colours making your camper van as individual as you are.

A new concept in camper van privacy

“Made up with our Vanshades. Excellent fast service & communication. We love the colour and so easy to fit. Cosy and dark even in full daylight – we can’t get away and test them properly!”

“Vanshades… I don’t think there is another product that even comes close to these, the design and quality is amazing and we won’t build a camper without them at Custom Campers Ltd”
