Frequently Asked Questions

When is your next availability for a conversion?

We are usually booked out 6 months to a year for full conversions. We can typically fit in small services within a month. Please check our contact page for current availability.

Do you supply the van?

No, but we can recommend Mercedes dealerships in Washington and California that are helpful in the ordering process. We also have a blog post of recommended features to order or to avoid. 

I just have one/a couple things I was wondering if you guys could help me with.

Our single services include windows, solar, fan, diesel heater, battery power system installs, fuel tanks, and select exterior accessories (Owl Vans, Backwoods/Chandler Equipment, Aluminess, CAtuned Offroad, Fiamma, Flarespace) and VanCompass suspension kits.

Can you work with other types of vans, or just Sprinters and Transits?

We offer single services on other types of vans but do not do full conversions.

I have an idea for my van but I want to talk to someone about it first and get some help with it.

We do not offer consulting services, but if you reserve a production space, we will design a layout for you based on your needs.

How much does it cost?

Short wheel bases (144″ Sprinter or the Short Ford Transit) generally range between $80k-$150k+ for a full custom conversion. Long wheel bases (170 Sprinter or Long/Extended Ford Transit) generally range between $100k-$225k+ for a full custom conversion. Phase 1 projects (insulation, paneling, solar power system, bed platform, and lighting) typically cost between $30k-$80k depending on material choices and wheel base. An average build cost with us is typically about $125,000.

Do you sell products or parts?

We do not, but you can visit our Amazon store to shop products that we use in our conversions. 

Do you work with people remotely?

Yes, we work for clients from all over the United States.

Do you allow shop visits?

We offer private shop visits when you are ready to put down a deposit for a conversion with us. We also have public group shop tours every second Friday of the month at 1pm. Please reach out to our office manager to set up appointment!

How long does it take for a van conversion?

Phase 1, or small conversions, typically take 3-4 months. Full conversions typically take 6-8 months. It all depends on your project.
