Frequently Asked Questions

When is your next availability for a conversion?

We are usually booked out around 1-2 years 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, and battery power system installs.

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 $70-$150k+ for a full conversion. Long wheel bases (170 Sprinter or Long/Extended Ford Transit) generally range between $90k-$200k+ for a full conversion. Phase 1 projects (insulation, paneling, solar power system, bed platform, and lighting) typically cost between $30k-$70k depending on material choices and wheel base. An average build cost with us is typically about $100,000.

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 hour long group shop visits on the second Friday of every month at 2pm. Email us to make your reservation! We offer private shop visits when you are ready to put down a deposit for a conversion with us. (PLEASE NOTE: Shop tours are currently on hold until further notice)

How long does it take for a van conversion?

Phase 1, or small conversions, typically take 1-2 months. Full conversions typically take 3-6 months. It all depends on your project.
