Mostly perfect

The quality of the material ist very nice and it feels very smooth. The alu stripes don't fit perfect but good enough. Also the end Caps are not perfect for installation and I had some screws to cut. But all in all I'm happy with it and there's no other easy way to make the van so dark.

Fit a new T6.1

Fitting was relatively simple if you take your time. I had to drill some extra holes on the top rail as the factory holes were over the big holes that came in the tailgate from the factory. A bit of bending required for the lower rail too.

Thumbs Up

I bought a full set of Black Out curtains for my T5.1 LWB. The quality was very good, they look smart and they certainly do their job well in keeping any light out regardless of time of day and therefore excellent privacy qualities. I ordered the grey rails and decided to have the curtains black side facing out as the grey matched my internal trim. One of the points I had to address was that when **** in the studs you have to be careful not to open up the hole on the stud with the self tapping screws. I was supplied with two types of ****. Most were brass not self tapping but I had one bag of silver self tapers included. The brass screws gave no issues but the silver self tappers did. They seemed a harder material than the stud it was securing. Light pressure opened up the hole they were supposed to secure. A quick phone call put that right on receiving the additional brass screws I quickly remedied the problem. Excellent customer service and products.

Quality curtains

Easy fitting of rails , although pre drilled holes in top rail on each end came in line with slotted holes in tailgate , just needed to drill a new hole 10mm in to miss the slots which is no problem this was on a T6 . Earlier models might be ok . Screws provided self drilling so didn’t need to drill pilot holes . All in all great quality curtains and certainly are blackout . Well done Kiravans

Fantastic blackout curtains!!

Fantastic curtains, my VWT5 needed blackout curtains all round. They look great when closed or open on there tie backs . Fitting went really well and straight forward . If anything you must be careful when drilling the poppers on to the sides, I found the screws can sometimes go through the popper head if you over tighten them. Overall a great product 👍 when compared to other vans with curtains, theses are far superior, thanks again Kiravans

Kiravans blackout campervan curtains have a black finish on one side and grey on the opposite. They are double-lined for exceptional thermal insulation and a darker window covering than standard curtains.

These are very high-quality curtains manufactured to our specification to ensure a wonderful finish in your campervan. (Our manufacturer also supplies curtains to Mercedes incorporating the same fabric and design!)

The fabric is stretchy with a fairly dense weave, giving very good light blocking and excellent thermal properties. The stretch feature of these curtains allows up to 20% extra height. The aluminium rails are robust and feature an attractive bevelled edge for a professional finish. Rails come pre-drilled and pre-bent for each window location to make fitting nice and simple.

Notes on fitting:

This kit will include a curved top rail to fit inside the window indentation with the slider groove facing downwards. The lower rail sits with the groove facing forwards towards the front of the van. Lower rails are pre-bent to go around the wiper motor housing box (the bend is central and may need slightly altered by hand as the motor housing is slightly offset).


  • Blackout curtains ensure exceptional thermal insulation and a darker window covering. (Total blackout cannot be achieved with a stretch fabric so strong sunlight is still slightly visible).
  • Blackout curtain rails are grey
  • Stretchy fabric (up to 20% extra height)
  • Dense weave for good light blocking and excellent thermal properties
  • Robust, aluminium rails with an attractive bevelled edge.

  • Strong gliders come pre-threaded on the curtains to save you time and are easily replaceable if needed.
  • Low profile self-tapping fixing screws are included which sit below the level of the gliders in the rail, no there's no risk of snagging
