How will I install this Van Bunk Window?
You will need to create a template to install the VWD-Overlander Bunk Window Series of windows. To make a template, you can use aluminum framing on the backside of the Window or the clamp ring. We will have illustrations of using the clamp ring. Be sure to use the clamp ring's edge that matches the Window's aluminum frame edge (the aluminum frame that goes through the wall).
Ensure that the clamp ring is taped shut, as it has an opening.
You will then trace your template onto the cardboard box sharpie, black marker, etc. you do not want to have too wide of a title, as you want to try and be as precise as possible.
After you have drawn out the pattern on the cardboard, it is time to cut the way from the cardboard.
Once your template is created, clean up any little rough edges, and we are ready to place it on your Van. You will want to measure out for placement to ensure you have your template where you want it to be. To hold the template in place, you can put screws through the cardboard, have a partner hold or use tape. In our photo, we used tape. Be sure to tape the template in place on the temperate areas so those are easy to draw in your line later.
Draw your template onto the wall of the Van.
Once you have drawn your pattern onto the van wall and are happy with the placement, you are ready to cut. Reciprocating saw, skill saw, disc, nibbler, shears, etc...
Once your hole is made, dry fit the Window to make sure the Window fits into the hole. No adjustments or extra trimming are needed. You can add a clear coat or paint to the cut edge if you are good. Again, it's not necessary, just a precaution.
Now time to install the Window. Before putting the Window on the Van, it's best to go through and make a small pilot hole in all the locations around the trim ring. That way, you do not get round the heads of the screws when tightening the Window.
Put the Window in place from the outside of the Van, allowing the aluminum mounting frame to extend through a hole in the wall. Next, place the clamp ring from the inside. Most vans will have the split on the bottom. With one person holding the Window in place on the outside, the other can start to screw from the inside generally; begin with the two at the split in the trim ring to have that lined up then top and around you do not want to tighten once all screws are in place entirely, you can then go back around and pull them be sure to tighten evenly around for proper seal.
