Weather Guard’s Custom Van Configurator is an interactive online tool that allows users to visually build out custom van upfits for Ford Transit and Ford Transit Connect models based on specific application needs utilizing Weather Guard products, from storage modules and bulkheads to shelving and other organizational accessories.

“The standard upfitting process can be difficult to navigate, especially when trying to choose equipment to perfectly fit the dimensions of a vehicle,” said Pete Edwards, director of product management for the company’s Van Storage division. “The technology-based platform of the Custom Van Configurator provides a convenient way for end-users to customize their van interior utilizing exact measurements to select the equipment package that best fits their needs.”

The configurator allows users to visually and interactively place partitions, racks and bins, shelving, ladder racks and more in a three-dimensional digital model of their cargo van. Users can build their own storage package or utilize one of the pre-configured pro packages that are tailored to the unique requirements of specific trades.

  1. Select the vehicle make, model, wheel base and roof height.
  2. Choose a pre-configured van package or skip ahead to select products individually.
  3. Configure the vehicle by selecting products, including a bulkhead, storage modules and roof rack.
  4. To finish the van package, the online tool also enables the end-user to add additional accessories.
  5. Finally, as a registered user, the customer will receive a printable drawing, parts list and can submit for quote to a certified installer in the area.

Once a user completes a free registration, they can save their equipment list and search for local distributors to contact for a quote. Weather Guard reps are also available for referrals to one of more than 400 certified van installers in the U.S. and Canada, the company says. Future updates to the configurator are planned to include enhanced functionality as well as more van makes and models available for customization.
