None of those links work for me. Maybe their site is down for maintenance. I always thought conversion vans are the best way to go for an easy entry into vans. They are plush, comfy and typically cheap with minimal wear. Plus, add an extra battery and they already have lights and everything inside. Just need a bed.

the website didn't work for me either. Conversion vans can be incredible value for what you get... most families these days are looking for an SUV and contractors don't want to take the time to gut the van to be useful for hauling stuff. I'm definitely not certain about the quality of the conversion companies. I'm sure some are better than others, but mine (Eclipse conversion) wasn't done super well. Once I stripped out the interior you could really see what they half-assed. Of course I guess this goes for any RV company...

Links work for me. Not what I envision when someone says conversion van though.

Hah, yeah they work for me now as well. Definitely not the typical conversion van I was thinking of either. Looks like somebody doing simple builds and flipping them for (a lot of) profit. Nice looking builds though.

Ride the wave, the van wave. They are OK in my opinion, just not my style.

On Shark Tank recently there were two guys from Vegas that build out and rent older Econolines. The Sharks all acted like this was the best idea they ever heard and the guys got multiple offers. Silly.

Those vans are on Instagram I think it’s tommy camper vans or something like that. They were for rent at one point too.

Maybe even shorter in this particular van. Looks like the build out of the wall with the window is fairly thick and the opposite wall looks plumb going vertical which means they're losing all the extra inches of width provided by the natural curvature of the body at bed height.


These vans have been for sale here for quite a while. I wonder if the (un)usability of the bed is one of the main reasons.
