Camper Van Window Fitting | DIY Installation Guide

A camper van window fitting is an absolute necessity! It brightens up the interior and improves ventilation by letting in fresh air. It is also a legal requirement in the UK by the DVLA when converting a van into a campervan. In this guide I will show you how to very easily install a window for your van conversion! I'm Shane, I've been teaching people to convert campervans for many years, I'm the van conversion instructor at Udemy, author of The Van Conversion Newsletter, and the proud owner of a beautiful self-build campervan called Beans. So let's jump in and have a look at van window installation!
