Flarespace Bed Flares for 136″ Ram Promaster FAQ’s:
Why should I buy Flarespace Bed Flares for my camper van?
Because they’re awesome! Flares provide a sleek, elegant finish to your van while also adding 20″ of space back into your floor plan. When Flares are installed on either side of your van, you’ll have 80 inches of space from wall to wall. This allows you to put a queen-size bed ‘sideways’ rather than the usual lengthwise configuration. We are the inventors of Flares and we’ve also patented them!
What are the 2 Flarespace Bed Flare Sizes?
The Extended Depth Flarespace Bed Flare is 2” deeper than our regular depth Flarespace Bed Flare and is available exclusively for the driver’s side to avoid contact with the slider door on the passenger side. Please note that the Extended Depth Flare is not compatible on vans with dual slider doors, or on right-hand drive vehicles.
How much space will I have after I install Flarespace Bed Flares?
The answer to this question depends on which Flarespace Bed Flare depth you select, whether they have windows, and which vehicle you’ll be installing them onto. However, we have devised a chart outlining the van-specific measurement estimates from Flare wall to Flare wall:
How do all the van Flare window options differ?
We get this question a bunch so we created a handy chart for comparing the features.
Pro Tip – slider windows usually need to be closed during heavy rain to keep your mattress from getting soaked. Awning windows are popular because they hinge from the top and open at the bottom, and can typically be open during heavy rain.
How are Flarespace Bed Flares installed?
Installing Flarespace Bed Flares is relatively straightforward once you get comfortable cutting holes in the sides of your camper van. Installation time varies based on your experience and skill level, but 2-6 hours is enough to get Flarespace Bed Flares installed on your camper van.
Flarespace Bed Flares are fiberglass with a grey gel coat finish. The first step once you receive them is to dry-fit them to ensure that these handmade products will fit properly once attached to the van. To test fit the Flarespace Bed Flares, hold them in place and make sure the fit is perfect and flush.
The second step is to bring your Flarespace Bed Flares to your local autobody paint shop to have them painted to your color preference (typically to match the color of your van), and once the paint is cured, the installation can begin.
The rear quarter panel is cut out along the OEM lines (the same place the factory would cut to install windows), and the bare metal from the cut must be painted with POR-15 Rust Preventive Paint. The Flarespace Bed Flare is then secured onto the outside of the van using the included adhesive and is then secured with painter’s tape while the adhesive cures. Please note: our adhesives expire 12 months from the manufacturing date, so always make sure to check the dates before use. The remaining adhesive is used on the inside to ensure a perfect seal.
If you ordered camper van bunk windows with your Flarespace Bed Flares, they are installed into the Flares after the adhesive is fully cured. Then add Flarespace Trim Rings and the Flarespace Bed Platform System, and start sleeping sideways!
If DIY is not your thing, Flarespace encourages all clients to seek a professional installer such as Nomadic Supply Company. Flarespace Bed Flares are a custom part that requires dry fitting, paint, and careful installation, as well as specialty tools to cut out the sheet metal, so an experienced installer is strongly recommended.
How do I finish the interior of my Flarespace Bed Flares?
There are two parts to finishing the interior of your van’s Flares: creating the sill and making the Flare fit the aesthetics of your van’s walls. Our Flarespace Trim Rings are the perfect turnkey solution to create your Flare’s sill.
Are van Flarespace Bed Flares noisy?
While Flarespace can’t match the noise reduction of a finished wall with 4″ depth, Flares with 1/4″ to 3/8″ of closed-cell foam insulation do much better than any window or roof vent in your van.
Does the slider door need to be modified?
No. The slider door will open fully without modification. Regular depth Flares will work on vans with dual slider doors.
Do van Flarespace Bed Flares come with a warranty?
Flarespace offers a one-year limited warranty from the date of purchase on our fiberglass Flares.
Can I return my van Flarespace Bed Flares after purchase?
All of our parts are made to order, and we, therefore, do not accept returns. Flares are shipped in custom packaging to ensure safe delivery. In the event the Flares are damaged during shipping, the customer is required to wait for inspection from the shipping company and take specific pictures of the damage to the part and packaging. Flarespace will not be responsible for repairing or replacing damaged Flares if an inspection doesn’t occur. Please let us know immediately if Flares sustained damage during their time with the shipping company. Do not have parts repaired or dispose of packaging until the claim resolution process is finished.
Can you ship van Flarespace Bed Flares internationally?
Flarespace utilizes ground shipping within the continental US (shipping charges calculated at checkout). International customers have successfully used freight forwarding companies to ship their Flare orders outside of the US.
