So, you’re looking to convert your Sprinter or Transit into an adventure van. As a custom upfitter, we’ve seen our fair share of design layouts. Whether you are looking to have your van converted by a professional company, or DIY, here are a few ideas to inspire you.

Home Is Where You Park It Aesthetic

This fully kitted out home-on-wheels aesthetic can take you anywhere with all of the comforts of home. With a full kitchen, bed, running/hot water, power, and plenty of storage, you can kick it in the backcountry for a few days while you camp, bike, hike, and have a good time.

The ‘Should We Visit the National Parks In One Year?’

Built with a bed that rises out of the way when you need extra room, or to store gear when you’re out on a hike. Add in the two person seat with storable table, floor to ceiling cabinet equipped with a microwave, and you’re ready to be a true road warrior.

The Adventure Mobile

For those looking for something a little simpler, with enough room to pack your mountain bikes, paddle board, or gear for whatever adventure sport you are into.

Minimalist Van For The Whole Family

If you own a passenger van and need a simple upfit to take the family out on adventures during the weekends, the Basecamp series is the right layout for you. With a utility box that stores a battery, water kit, and more, you can head out for minimalist adventures with up to 6 people. This build features a 4 person bench seat, and 2 bunks. When all the adventuring is done, you can easily convert it back into a passenger van by restoring the bench seats to their original places.
