Sprinter Vans

 
We offer unique and unparalleled services in van design, conversion, and outfitting. In building my first van, I found a deep sense of pride and joy in trying to maximize space, efficiency, and simplicity while also cramming as much technology and thoughtfulness into the design as possible. I think I achieved my goal of 'most efficient use of space,' a sort of rustic elegance with zen minimalism, enabling six adult-size people to have a complete sleeping space in a short 144 van while also keeping space for kitchen, fridge, cabinets, seats, and plenty of space to play around inside and store gear. In fact, the design is modular enough that all components can easily be removed in minutes to completely empty the van.

A full tour of our 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4x4 high roof 144 wheelbase van conversion will soon be up! We will also post a complete time-lapse video of the full build. Here is a summary of our outfitting work with a variety of features, upgrades, add-ons, and modifications, all of which we can incorporate and build in your van:
