    Mike, if you can’t find what your looking for, look into welding fabric. You can have something custom made, and it can have snaps, or quick release type fittings.

    Another option is going to a custom tarp place. I had my local one make me up a rug pit out of heavy duty material. They can do anything you need, including putting a clear vinyl window in if needed. That way, you’ll get exactly what your looking for.

    They are not currently available anywhere that I know of.

    There was one small garage company that made all the van dividers. They were sold by Interlink Supply, by American Van and several other companies. He retired and no more were being made.

    A former Interlink Supply employee started a sewing company called Custom Bags that began making the van dividers in what was the most popular size at that time. Making a quality pattern for the fabric and where all the snaps goes has a start-up cost for each model. Right now, our product managers do not see enough sales to justify the investment in new patterns for the larger taller vans. I keep suggesting it. They want to be sure we would sell at least 100 a year to get back the initial investment.

    If enough people wanted to order, I could get them. Similar to the ones we do sell for the older style vans but a perfect fit for Transit or whatever other van it was made for. If you want one for Transit, let me know. More names of potential customers would give me some ammunition when I go back and prose the additional sizes again.

    All I see premade are from Van-X in the UK....they ship here


    but it look like they would only be useful as a pattern to make something more heavy duty..............and you still have to do measuring, cutting, and riveting

    https://van-x.co.uk/media/import/pdf/Van-X-Cab-Divider-Curtains-Instruction.pdf


    they don't seem to be tailored in any way so you are really paying for the track system...not even a pattern


    I thought there would be more aftermarket in the RV/stealth camping world but it seems to be all DIY or overseas

    Yacht canvas and upholstery people can do it. Should be a few of those around the Bay area... usually mobile so they will come to you. They can add the window as well like on the seal a door.

    What about buying the factory ford hardwall divider? If there are areas you need to access on truckmount a local fabricator could make removable access panels for it

    I built a wall with a removable center section. I attached it at the door openings which worked well for me but it did reduce the distance the seats will move back. Not a problem for me cuz I'm only 5'7". 2004 Chev van 002.jpg

    the factory wall partition has nice little angle built in that isn't wasting space because the seats go right up against it on the otherside in the cab..

    FACTORY..
