I know I know you are thinking… "They are just window covers… what's so special about them?" KK I'm getting there just hear me out. When I started my window cover journey there were a few things that were important to me.… let's dive in!

What We Looked For

  • Fit & Design To insulate the van these covers needed to be a perfect fit and provide a good seal.
  • Easy To Use You can't forget the van is a vehicle so they need to be quick & easy to put up and take down…
  • Quality This product gets used multiple times a day… every day. So the build quality and material choices need to stand up to long-term use
  • Performance At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how good they look… They need to help control the temperature of your van.

Make Sense? Now let's break things down and go over the 5 reasons you will love these things.

1. Stay Warm All Winter

Do you love winter? Chasing Snow & Camping in Ski Hill Parking Lots? Then The Wanderful Window Covers are built for you. They are insulated with double-sided foil-faced insulation to stop heat loss through your vehicle windows and prevent condensation. Keeping your van toasty warm even when it's -20C outside.

If you have spent any time winter camping in your van you know that the windows are the hardest area to stop heat loss. Moisture builds up on the windows creating condensation and the frost gets so thick you can't even see through your windows.

The Wanderful Window Covers are designed to create a perfect fit that simulates having a dual pane window and creates an air barrier (I'm not going to get technical here but air barriers are good) and this is what stops condensation from forming & all that precious heat from escaping out the large van windows.

Tested & Approved

I'm from Canada and when I say I'm from Canada I'm talking about the Freezing cold part… yeah -30C cold. I've traveled all over North America in my van and been comfortable in temperatures ranging from -13F up to 80F.

2. Easiest Way to Keep your Van Cool

Not just using your van in the winter? Tired of the scorching sun turning your van into a sauna? These window covers with foil-faced insulation reflect up to 95% of UV rays keeping your van cooler during the hot summer months.

These Shades Block 95% of UV Rays

If you are like me and a fan of using our van in the Summer & Winter then you know it's not just about keeping your van warm in the winter… .you also need a product that's going to help keep your van cool in the summer!

With these window covers the insulation inside them is foil faced on both sides which reflects most of the UV Rays from getting into the van and causing it to get uncomfortably hot in the summer.

3. Provides Safety & Security

These covers are machine-cut and held in place with the strongest magnets giving you a perfect seal & complete blackout privacy. Leaving you feeling safe and secure wherever you choose to camp!

I can't tell you how many times I've been sitting in my van minding my own business and had someone walk straight up to the window… .cup their hands around their face… .and stare directly into my van. Just think if I've had this happen to me time and time again how many times has it happened when I'm nowhere near my van?

4. Made Using Marine Grade Materials
