How it Works

All of our vans are purpose-built.

Two levels of customization—for maximum freedom and joy

Core VanTM

Our CORE line is where freedom begins. It has everything you need to access nature.

OSV Core conversion, including a 4×4 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 144, starting at $89,000.

OSV Core Conversion, including a 4×4 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 170, starting at $96,000.

*All Core vans are Graphite Grey or Stone Grey



The sky is the limit with our custom conversions.  Each custom van we make is unique, one-of-a-kind, and designed for you.

We have built hundreds of custom vans.  You can view our Options Page to get an idea of some of the work we have done. You can be off grid, haul gear internally and be warm and comfortable.  The greatest part of van camping, is you can be deep in nature and have everything (all your bikes, boards, jackets, shoes, etc.) you want with you.  What do you want in your van?
