Wind deflectors

Post by George.. on Sat Jul 02, 2016 7:02 pm

Hi all, am thinking of fitting wind/rain deflectors to the cab windows of our 2000 VW T4 Gatcombe. Has anyone have these and do they make a difference and are they noisey ?

I have them on my VW T4 Anniversary Clubman, also had them on my Topaz as well as Volvo estates, highly recommended, I have the ClimAir ones made in Germany, can have window open without the rain or wind getting in, not noisy. can leave window open slightly at night etc to let fresh air in.

Hi, thanks for reply, I will look into getting a pair on our return next week. We tried to get some fresh air in whilst driving but the noise was too much so your info is a great help.

They do work well. 
Previous to me getting a motorhome we towed a wobble box with our T4.
I had 2 sets of deflectors.
The first cheaper set were stolen as they just pulled off the closed windows. censored!
The second more expensive set were much more secure.
Sorry I no longer have any info on the brands but you could try trawling for info here

I've just fitted a pair to our Clubman, and they really do deflect wind/rain. Also, as Margaret said, they allow you to have the windows open at night for fresh air, and, for interest, they do not affect the fitting of a Siver Screen. I bought them from Just Kampers, and they cost £34.95 including delivery.

Hiya, we bought some last year for our Gatcombe, purely so we could have a solar panal attached to the engine battery over winter , and keep the panal on the dash , running the cable out through the top of the window . Very useful to leave the Windows slightly open to run tv cables too and for air at night , keeps the rain out when driving too . Can't remember brand or cost sorry will keep thinking ! confused3

I've remembered !!!  Heko the make , £24.99 from Transporters R Us courtesy

Hi all and thanks for your input. Have ordered a pair of Climair £49 on eBay. Wil advise on performance when fitted. Happy travels.
