SPRINTER 1500 144 or TRANSIT 250 148

After years of living in our van and creating over 90+ custom conversions for our clients, we have dialed in spec van layouts that provide a balance between the comforts of home and a rugged vehicle for your adventures. This set layout offers additional componentry options and a selection of materials for you to choose from to fit your unique needs and style, without the additional cost of a totally custom conversion. Our focus at Freedom Vans has always been to create high quality, functional camper vans that are a vehicle to freedom, and these layouts check all of those boxes. With off grid capabilities, these vans are a tool to get outside and do the things that you love!

Comfort and Gear Storage

This short wheel based layout is perfect for a person or couple that wants the simplicity of driving around a shorter van and are open to a more modular living space. It has a large “garage” for all of your gear storage needs — bikes, inflatable paddle boards, skis, etc. Either enjoy a short queen sized fixed bed, or pull out the bed extension for a nearly king sized bed. A modular dining area and nice sized kitchen space provide the comforts of home. Add in your HVAC, bathroom, and exterior accessory needs, and you are ready to go!
