This durable marine grade vinyl can withstand the most rugged adventures and can be easily wiped down when its time to clean up sand, dirt, mud, snow, or pet hair. Boasting a unique cross-hatch embossed design, Lonseal Lonridge flooring has all the slip resistance a surface needs while also providing a dusting of speckles that help mask the mess. 

Cabinetry: Marine Grade Plywood & Wilsonart HP Laminate

You won’t find any particle board here. Known for its water resistance, strength, dimensional stability, and longevity, we use marine grade plywood for all of the cabinetry found in Approach. It’s then finished with Wilsonart High Pressure Laminate, which is 3X more resistant to wear, scratches, and scuffing, compared to other laminates.  

Countertop: Corian

Corian withstands daily wear and tear, keeping its good looks for many years. Thanks to its nonporous surface, it’s antimicrobial because there’s no place for bacteria and mold to take root. As a low-VOC material, it’s free from dangerous chemicals and supports better indoor air quality.

Mattress: RoamRest

RoamRest’s Ultimate Tri-Fold Mattress utilizes a dual-hinged tri-fold design that’s extremely versatile and can be easily stored when not in use. It’s made using a 5” thick high performance/low profile foam, soft polyester top fabric that’s water- and abrasion-resistant, and low-slip nylon coated side fabric for easy cleaning. Several unique fabric patterns are available.

Ceiling: Sileather

Sileather is a silicone leather that’s easy to clean, weatherproof, antimicrobial, and highly durable. Silicone has high thermal stability due to its molecular bonding, which means it’s resistant to both low and high temperatures, which vans see a lot of. Because of its low surface tension, it’s stain resistant and hydrophobic. 

Walls: Interweave Fabric

Interweave fabric is non-allergenic, mildew resistant, and won’t absorb spills or stains. It’s extremely durable and holds up to regular heavy use. A staple in Outside Vans from the beginning, interweave is tested and approved!
