Sprinter van conversions are meant to get you to the places you love and keep you comfortable while you’re out there. Fully custom builds can be great, but far too often the process becomes overly time-consuming and complicated and the customer ends up with a van that doesn’t function as well as it should. We’ve done the hard work for you by designing three models of camper van that work flawlessly and look beautiful. The best part? You still get plenty of opportunities to make this van your own.
Stay tuned, there’s no lack of creativity in these parts; we expect to have more layouts in the future.
Yes! We’re currently engineering our first ADA-compliant conversion. Please inquire for more details.
No, we don’t, but we'll go all out to help you find, purchase, and ship your dream van from any dealership in the country. Alternatively, you can bring (or ship it) your van to our shop. Please note that for our standard layouts we only build on 2019+ Mercedes Sprinters with the 170" or 144" wheelbase and high roof. You can download our Mercedes Sprinter van buying guide here, which will walk you through everything you want to look for in your van so your conversion is as cost effective and eco-friendly as possible.
Yes! The Explorer model is built on the 144" Sprinter van chasis, in a two or four-passenger model. Please inquire for more details.
We're not offering fully custom builds at the moment. But our Endeavor, Venture and Explorer models are highly customizable.
The base price for our three van models - which all come loaded with the full suite of our standard features, (many of which you’d pay extra for with other van builders), like a robust solar power system, premium queen size mattress, convertible second bed, expansive garage, and kitchen - is around $125k. And you can rest assured that it will be one of the most eco-friendly and health-conscious vans available. Note that this price doesn't include the van itself, which you already own or we can help you source and purchase. Multiple financing options are available for the conversion and van purchase.

We're not doing fully custom designs at the moment. But all of our models have tons of options that can be added to customize your van.

Yes! We have financing partners and are happy to put you in touch. Please contact us at [email protected].
Additionally, certain Mercedes Benz dealers will be able to facilitate your relationship with Mercedes Benz Financial Services to finance not only the cost of your new van, but also 50% of the cost of the conversion, allowing you to finance 75% of the total cost. To do that, the dealership will need our build invoice. So before you start shopping for your van, we suggest contacting us to finalize your design details so we can prepare your invoice.
Other options to consider are a credit union loan, home equity line of credit, forming a partnership with 2 or more parties to purchase the van together, and generating income from the van by renting it out airbnb-style on outdoorsy.com.
And be sure to check out our blog for an article on other creative ways to finance and afford the van of your dreams.

A 50% deposit will reserve your spot in our production schedule. We can help you find and purchase your van from a dealer and arrange for delivery to our shop, unless you already own a van. A progress payment of 25% is due during the build cycle, and a final 25% payment is due upon delivery. Our build process takes approximately 10-12 weeks. On delivery day, we will take you on a detailed walkthrough to ensure that you are well-acquainted with your new van. Finally, we hand over the keys and you start exploring!
