Your Van Ventilation Guide

Your Van Ventilation Guide

If you had at least one overnight trip away in your van you've realised by now how important airflow in your van is to a comfortable nights sleep. We have a few solutions for you to consider some serving dual purposes of mosquito protection and or maintaining security.


Ventilation Grille

The rugged ventilation grille provides secure air ventilation and deaeration for you van. You can easily and quickly attach it to the open window from the outside. Afterwards it is locked from the inside. Bothersome installation work or annoying technical inspections are not necessary.

Midge Screen

Keeping the smallest of biting and annoying insects out of your campervan can often be the difference between making or breaking a fantastic trip away.

This midge net is for the rear side slide opening windows and fits neatly into the frame of the open window.

NOTE: The midge net will only fit into genuine Volkswagen slide opening side windows, it won’t fit into any copy style Transporter slide opening windows.

With a tough mesh material that won’t snag and catch the midge screens are simple to slide into place and will still allow the window to be slid back and forth and secured in the various locking holes – from fully open to almost fully closed, but not completely shut tight.

Tailgate Latch

A very simple method to create ventilation from front to rear. The tailgate latch fits in the existing rear tailgate and extends the latching point. This then permits the tailgate to latch 'shut' and centrally lock, yet remaining ajar to allow air to circulate.

This small assistant allows fresh air to pass through the tailgate in your car and supplies fresh air while sleeping. When using the airlock, the boot lid is opened about 10 cm but still remains shut and protected from theft. You can also use the hook for ventilation while it is raining - no water enters over the boot lid.
