If you’re like us, the noise of a single mosquito can ruin a good night of sleep. They say that killing the mosquitos before going to bed is part of the Vanlife routine… it actually doesn’t have to be! Adding bug screens to our van was a priority, and in retrospect, we’re SO GLAD we did! In the article below, we’ll give you a quick tour of our bug screens and give you a solid option for the Ford Transit, Mercedes Sprinter, or Ram ProMaster vans.
Our Mosquito Screens
Our bug screens are made by Rolef.ca, a small local company just outside Montreal here in Canada. It’s an exceptional product, but, unfortunately, it’s hard to get and the price tag is quite steep. So keep scrolling down this page for an alternative! Here are the mosquito screens installed on our van:
Rear Doors (Garage)
Fully Closed Mode
The van is fully vented, yet no mosquitos!
Partially Opened Mode
The top/bottom part can be turned into mosquito/closed mode independently.
Fully Opened Mode
Because we can.
Magnetic Door (Our favorite feature!)
Getting in/out of the van doesn’t get any easier than this!
The Bug Wall
People have been asking us about our screens for years, so we’re VERY EXCITED to finally have an alternative to propose! The Bug Wall‘s challenge was to create insect screens made of quality material at a fair price… and it looks like they accomplished it. On top of that, their product can be installed fairly easily by anyone; they have a very comprehensive installation video (see below), so it doesn’t get easier that this! The Bug Wall is currently making insect screens for the Ford Transit, Mercedes Sprinter, and Ram ProMaster vans (pretty much all models: low/med/high roof, etc.) and offer a few models:
Magnet/Zipper opening type, Center/Offset opening location.
Rear Door - Full Set
Magnet/Zipper opening type.
Rear Door - Garage Set
Magnet/Zipper opening type, Center/Offset opening location, customized bed platform height (neat!).
Front Doors Mosquito Net
Fitting mosquito nets to your van’s front doors is a simple and cost-effective way to add ventilation!
Van Made Gear Mosquito Net
Top-quality mosquito net (pair) for the ProMaster van driver/passenger door (Transit and Sprinter vans coming soon, we’re hoping!) . These bug screens attach magnetically to the window contour and pack down small. No-see-ums. Handmade in the USA.

Insulated Window Covers
Insulated window covers are a “must-have” for camper or adventure vans because they provide privacy and thermal insulation (for hot summer days or snow chasing winter vanlife). By strategically inserting magnets all around the edges, the window covers are super easy to install/remove: they simply snap to the metal window contour. Neat and functional, like it should be! The shape of the window covers can be changed to fit pretty much any vans: Ford Transit, Mercedes Sprinter, Ram ProMaster, etc.
Nice To Meet You.
Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine In 2017, we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers, and moved into our self-built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then, and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!
