Sprinter van rear canopy & awning

Helping adventure seekers like you increase shelter & privacy without modifying your van.

Wish you had a little more space at the back of your van, but feel exposed with the barn doors open?

Wouldn’t it be great to have:

  • Protection from the hot sun or pouring rain?
  • Privacy for an outdoor shower?
  • Extra space to stretch out outside the van?
  • A place to change out of dirty clothes?

We know how cramped the van can be at times.

And we believe you shouldn’t have to compromise on comfort and function while living your adventure. That’s why we created the Hangout™.

“The rear door cover provides the perfect privacy to shower off outside and keep the rest of the van clean and dry. We absolutely love it. I would recommend it to anyone.”

How Precious Is Your Indoor Space?

The largest Mercedes Sprinter van, 170-inch wheelbase with extended length, has 116 square feet of floor space from gas pedal to rear doors before any insulation or panelling are added. For a $50,000 van that is more than $400 per square foot. My friend’s custom-built van is a very precious $1,600 per square foot. When you can’t upgrade to a longer van, utilizing your outside space is the next best option. The Hangout will add more than 40 square feet of covered space to the back of your van with the awning extended, at a modest $13 per square foot.

Engineered for the Van Life You Want

I know you want to be an independent explorer, free to play and work in comfort where and when you want. But space in your van is precious, which may limit what you can do inside and leave you feeling exposed to the elements and public view when you’re outside of the van. We know you’ve thought carefully about how to get the most from your Sprinter van and believe you shouldn’t have to compromise on comfort and function. That’s why we’ve worked with knowledgeable van owners like you to design an easy-to-install rear door canopy and privacy curtain so you can expand your shelter and privacy when and where you need it. All you have to do is: 1) Check fit, 2) Place your order, and 3) Install your shelter. Buy now to expand your back door coverage when needed, so you can explore from your van with more comfort and confidence.
