Window Pods® are designed to fit to the steel window recess of the vehicle. Window Pods® are therefore not compatible with any plastic trim present around the window (e.g. Tourneo Custom). If you are unsure if this applies to your vehicle, please get in touch via email or phone before placing your order.

Maintain a stylish interior whilst improving privacy in your camper with the Vanshades Window Pod® D. The Window Pod® D fits the rear quarter fixed window on the offside of the long wheelbase variants of the Ford Transit Custom.

*Please be advised Spectrum RAL colours may not be true to real colours due to screen settings. It’s strongly recommended using the K7 Classic RAL colour swatches to match to your preference in person.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are Window Pods available for a Caravelle or Shuttle?

    Unfortunately not, any vehicle with an interior plastic trim around the windows is not suitable for Window Pods. They must be fitted to the steel body of the vehicle; this can however be carpeted prior.

  • I don’t know what colour carpet my van is already carpeted in and I’m concerned about colour match.

    We would recommend you speak with your local conversion company who will be able to help you. If not we can always send you a free sample in the post and take things from there.

  • Do your Window Pods cover the side windows too?

    Yes they do, please take visit our WindowPod® page for more details.

  • I’m unsure what colour my van lining is already carpeted in, is there a way to find this out?

    We would recommend you speak to your conversion company or previous owner regarding carpet colours to be sure, however, if you're unable to do so you can use our free sample service. Please be aware that our stocked carpets are limited, and we cannot guarantee a 100% match.

  • What do Window Pods look like from the outside of the vehicle? Is the blind colour the same on the outside?

    As Window Pods® feature a thermal, blackout blind. Most blinds are white on the reverse (outside) to reflect light and heat. We have included two colours in our range which are coloured on the reverse which are Midnight and Wine.

  • What is a Window Pod and what are they made from?

    A Window Pod is an ABS plastic frame vacuum formed to fit a window recess. The frame holds a polyester pleated blind which is completely blackout, with a foil lined honeycomb structure which adds thermal properties to the vehicle.

  • Can I fit a Window Pod behind my current kitchen splashback?

    We manufacture our own splashbacks, and we can also offer a Window Pod or blind only (without frame) to be secured to the back of your existing splashback. This will be difficult to add to a splashback which is already installed in a vehicle!

  • I have bought a Vanshades splashback, how do I cut it to size?

    As our splashbacks are sold by default in one size, they will need resizing to fit your vehicle. Whether you have an aluminium composite or acrylic splashback, they can be cut with a jigsaw and straight edge. We recommend using masking tape where you are cutting to avoid scratching and chipping.

  • Are Window Pods® compatible with Evo Motion Design kitchens?

    As Evo kitchens are normally of a higher worktop height than most units. This can have an impact on a Window Pod for a sliding window behind the driver. We recommend using a splashback with an Evo kitchen.

  • Will the fitting of the product put any holes in the body of the vehicle?

    As Window Pods are fitted with self-drilling screws, there will be holes in the steel bodywork of the vehicle, these are however all hidden by the product and are nowhere near any glass, electrics, or locks.
