Mosquito Screens for vans | Transit, Sprinter, ProMaster

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!  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

Great for winter or when we take a shower back there (faroutride.com/exterior-shower).

Mosquito 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.

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 are 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:

Side Door

Magnet/Zipper opening type, Center/Offset opening location.

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! The shape of the window covers can be changed to fit pretty much any vans: Ford Transit, Mercedes Sprinter, Ram ProMaster, etc.

about us

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!

  1. If you don’t have or don’t want to spend that kind of money, you can buy a magic mesh screen door *as seen on TV!!!!* for about 10 bucks cut it to size and put it up with snap button fasteners. This is what I did and it works very well. And… it’s magic.

    • I did the very same thing. They were end of season clearance ($5.00) I use them on my ford e 150 back door and side door. You can only open one of the side doors or rear doors at a time because the screens are not super wide. I bought lots of magnets to hold them in place

  2. Would it be possible to post some photos of how these screens are attached to the van? I have seen some companies that use the door seal to attach their screens but ROLEF doesn’t use this method, so I would like to see if their method will work for my van. As an added note, I have carpet padding and automotive carpet glued directly to my interior door frames so magnets wouldn’t work unless I attached something for it to stick to.

  3. HI
    I just found your blog m thanks for all the info. We are in the South of France and so have a lot of mosquitoes and we are lucky that a friend in our village has a mosquito net making business with magnets and likes a challenge and so she made one for the side door of our Toyota proace van . She makes to mesure so if you want and if it’s allowed on this site I can give you her web site. It is a lot cheaper than the prices you guys have posted up.
    All the best

    • Hi there Julie,

      I am very interested in possibly hiring your friend to design a cheaper mosquito net system for the double side doors and double back doors for my ford f150 transit van. Thanks!

    • Hi Julie,
      I am from Germany. Could you pass me the website of your friend ? I am interested to get a solution for our Citroen Jumper based van.
      Cheers, Michael

  4. We got Rolef screens in our van in June. We are based out of Boston and not full time yet so New England mosquitoes and bugs can really ruin your experience. These screen are amazing! I don’t regret spending the money on them at all.

  5. Looks great, starting my conversion project 2017 transit. I do not even know where to begin here in NH. I want the bug screen definitely. 🙂

  6. I’ve been considering the ROLEF screens. The only drawback that I see is the velcro. How does it hold up in extreme heat (I like boondocking in the desert)

    Reply
    • In theory they could be removed, but I don’t see why since when they’re rolled-up they don’t use any space. Also, they’re very neatly installed (under the door seal, with velcro, screws, etc) I wouldn’t want to mess with the installation.

  7. Hi Antoine, on the sliding door screen, it looks like there’s a magnetic closure and a vertical zipper near the B pillar, but it’s hard to understand from the photos (both yours and rolf.ca’s) why both are there. Do you mind explaining how that part works?

    Reply
    • When we don’t need the screen, the door is rolled up top using the zippers;
      when the screen is in use, we enter/exit using the magnetic closure.

      The magnet is quite rigid and cannot be rolled; that’s why a zipper is needed, to allow the door to be rolled.

      Hope that helps!

  8. We just had a similar bug screen project quoted out by a local business… exact same price as what you paid:)

    Thanks for the cool idea
