How the Flares made?

Camper Van Body Flares are traditionally made from Fiberglass like Flarespace and Flarespace Australia product, or the modern innovative manufacturing process called ABS Thermoformed, sometimes known as Vacuum Formed. This is a Flarespace Alternative.

ABS thermoformed better withstand the vibration of rough roads whereas Fiberglass is prone to crack under the shock of rough terrain.

ABS thermoformed is a great replacement to fibreglass. Vacuum forming has a low tool cost and components can be produced rapidly and more consistently.
