Window Covers - What do you dream of?

Knowing I had surgery coming up, I made a big push to get a bunch of window cover orders completed and shipped in April. Whew! That was exhausting!

I've since had surgery on my knee to replace a torn ACL and repair a torn meniscus. I'm itching to get back to making window covers for you all, but still under doctor's orders not to resume work. Any orders placed now will wait on hold until I am able to resume production. (But the queue is already stacking up!)

In the meantime, I'm pondering new features and products I could add to my lineup. If you have a particular feature or product in mind that you can't find elsewhere, post it here. Let's brainstorm together!

I have been looking for a set of curtains for the rear doors of my Sprinter. I would like curtains that have both a top and bottom rod, cord or spring that the curtains slide on. This would allow me to simply open and close these instead of removing and reinstalling my current fixed covers. Any sources for these?

Well it totally depends on which windows you're covering. But a "full set" could be anywhere between $800 to $1800. I make each set to order based on your specific configuration. It takes me about 6 weeks to complete a full set. The pricing for each individual window is available on the website: http://www.overlandadventuregear.com
I do offer discounts for orders of more that 6 covers and more than 8 covers.

That's an interesting idea! So you want to be able to slide them to the side when not in use? I've seen people DIY those but I haven't seen anyone selling them. I'll add that to my list of possible features to incorporate. Our current design is also permanently attached, but rolls up instead of sliding to the side. This might also satisfy your desire to not have to remove the covers when not in use. However, at this time, I only have templates for Econoline vans. If you'd be interested in being a guinea pig, I'd love to work with you on creating templates for the sprinter platform. Here are a couple of photos of the roll-up concept:

Thanks. I already have a complete set of roll ups and magnetic covers. I'm just looking to not have to use either on the rear door windows of the Sprinter. Sliding curtains will be the solution I am looking for. I want to be able to open and close them from the ground outside twice a day so I can see out of the rear while driving.
