The Window Pods Panel creates a truly professional look for the VW T5 and T6 and will allow you to save time, materials and installation costs. As with Window Pods, the panels can be supplied naked or carpeted. The top half of the panel, which includes the Window Pod® forming and the blind, is installed in the same manner as a standard Window Pod®. The lower half of the panel is to be fixed through the finish of the carpet using our installation guide.

Please note Window Pod® Panels are currently only available for VW at present. Panels are also not available in the Spectrum range.

“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”

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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.

  • I have a rear wash wiper on my tailgate, will this affect the fitting of the Window Pod?

    No, Window Pods have been designed with this in mind. The tailgate Window Pods® have a motor housing cover built in to cover the wiper motor.

  • Can the blinds be cleaned?

    The blinds in Window Pods can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

  • What type of vans do you offer Window Pods for?

    We currently manufacture Window Pods® for the VW T5/T6 and Ford Transit Custom (2013+). The pods are designed & precision engineered at our dedicated facility in South Yorkshire.

  • I’ve fitted a Window Pod to the sliding door of my vehicle, why won’t my door fully close?

    You must have a VW factory sliding glass. Prior to fitting Window Pods®, you must remove the plastic trim cover on the top bar of the sliding window for the Window Pod to sit correctly. This is covered in our fitting guide provided with every order.

  • Can I install my Window Pod?

    Window Pods are a pre-assembled blind and frame system which offers stylish privacy for all windows of your camper van. They're designed to be as easy as possible to fit directly into your camper interior, using just a few tools. Check out our 3-minute video installation tutorial.

  • I have replica VW windows, will Window Pods fit these?

    If you have an aftermarket copy of the VW OEM Kombi sliding windows (flush glass from outside of vehicle), our product for the VW OEM windows should still fit, it is best to check with our sales team if you have any concerns regarding the style of your windows.
