If you are a van owner or a DIY campervan converter, you know how important it is to maximise the space available in your vehicle. One way to do this is by adding side flares to your VW Crafter Campervan.

Benefits of VW Crafter side flares
The main benefit of VW Crafter side flares is that they can significantly increase the available space inside your van. By adding just a small extension on each side, you can create enough width to accommodate a full-length bed, cooking area, seating for 4 people, and even a bathroom. This can make a big difference when working within a limited space and can help you create a more comfortable living area in your van.
Another benefit of VW Crafter side flares is that they can change the layout of your van. By allowing you to sleep crossways, you can create a more flexible and versatile living space. You can also create more storage space by adding cabinets or drawers under the bed.

Installation and fitting
Installing VW Crafter side flares is a relatively simple process, but it does require some preparation and the right tools. You’ll need to key both the fibreglass inner surface and the van body before bonding with a polyurethane adhesive, such as Sikaflex 252.
If you’re planning on colour coding your VW Crafter Side Flares to your existing van colour, you will need to sand the fibreglass before painting to match your vehicle. It is recommended that you use a spray finish for the best results.
If you are not confident in your DIY skills, a fitting service is available from Wildworx at our workshop in Alcester (B49 6HW)
The cost of installation varies depending on a few factors. As a rough estimate you will be looking at around £400 for both the flares. Get in touch for a more accurate quote.
