This Door Prop thingy holds the rear door open using the existing latch mechanism:

There is a slight rubbing, so the door prop comes with tape to protect the paint.

The door opening is approximately 3 inches.
*It is still possible to lock the doors (including the rear doors) when the Door Prop is installed!

  1. I’d like to buy a rear door prop if it fits or can be modified for a 2007 Ford Econoline. I have metal working tools. Great website and lifestyle choice you guys! Six weeks on the road coming up for us.

  2. I have a pair that for now I use when the van is sitting for a few weeks. Screen closed door propped, Max fan on with battery tender on. keeps air from getting too hot and stagnant.

  3. How does this compare to the floor vents you installed? I will not be living out of my van permanently and am looking for excuses not to install a floor vent. This is partly because I am ready to install my floor and I don’t know where I would want to put one. Do you have problems with bugs when using the thingy?
