  1. Ford Transit General Discussion
    Hey everyone, I’m at a loss here. I have just finished converting my 2020 ford transit to a campervan. When it was finished I decided to store at a nice secure indoor storage unit until I can go full time in it. I went to pick it up for its first outing today, and went inside to grab the keys...
  2. Camper Vans and Conversions
    In today’s episode, I stopped in Victorville, California to visit the shop of Van Windows Direct, a supplier of a complete line of van window brands including their own line of Van Windows Direct windows. A lot of people buy and install these windows without completely understanding the nuance...

    I really like these windows for the driver and passenger bunk windows and I couldn't find many threads discussing them specifically. Lots of info on bonded window installation though. Has anyone installed them yet? I like that the slider is large and closer to the frame size and that the edges...
  4. Ford Transit General Discussion
    My wife wants plants. Plants want light. Therefore my wife wants light. I was planning on a second Maxx but... Been looking around at prices for decent skylights and I was floored by the prices, three or four times the price of a Maxx 7500! The only windows currently in the van are the...
  5. Ford Transit General Discussion
    Hi folks, I am about to fit a lot of items to my new transit van with avalanche white color. I need to drill some holes through the floor, set T-nuts inside and outside the body, cut holes in the vehicle roof and walls for windows. Does anyone here have specific recommendation on what...

    Hey all, We are in the market for the middle and rear quarter panel t-vent windows, both sides, for a 2021 148 standard length, HR. Almost bought the CRL's but then discovered all the quality issues other folks have been having. I spoke to VWD about it (very honest and informative discussion)...

    I'm considering some various options for windows to go mid-ship behind the driver's seat on a 148" HR. Does anyone have any experience installing CRL "Universal Non-Contoured" windows? How bad is the resulting wave/ripple in the sheet metal? Any issues in getting the clamp ring screws to take...

    Does anyone have experience with the AM Auto vs Van Windows Direct front 1/2 slider windows? The VWD ones are about $200 cheaper and (surprise!) VWD (who sells both) think theirs are better. They look very similar and both fit the existing opening. I'd like to save (2x) $200 but it's a pretty...

    Has anyone figured out a way to 'hack' the flip-out windows on the passenger van to get the windows to open wider than an inch or so? I haven't done much poking or prodding but I wonder if there might be a way to change the hinge so that they can open wider. Pics (not mine) for illustration of...

    Hi all, We're down to the windows and I think there's a mistake in the graphics of the 2021 (version 10/23/20) order doc. Optional Equipment, 2021 Transit - Window Offerings, page 21. In the attachment, circled areas, the image of the window placement does not reflect the description on the...

  12. Camper Vans and Conversions
    Has anyone gotten custom size / function windows from Motion? I'm planning on putting 4-5 windows in on my HR EL cargo and am considering a different slider setup. I'm planning on the large T-Windows for the forward cargo area behind the front seats but am considering asking for a...
  13. Ford Transit General Discussion
    Has anyone installed windows that cut the ribbing between the mid and rear panels? This is a mockup - I've outlined in blue the ribbing between the mid and rear factory window cutouts. Is this going to jeopardize the integrity of the van, or lead to noise and vibration issues?
