THT Van Builders

Looking to get into van life, but not quite into converting a van yourself? No worries, that’s why there are van conversions already for sale, and that’s also why there are companies completely dedicated to converting vans for people like you, completely custom, too.

But you might also find, that for some people (maybe you?) a van conversion project wouldn’t be all that difficult, and it could potentially save you quite a lot of money to build it out yourself, as you’ll soon see when you look at prices for these vans, especially amidst the 2020’s when more people than ever are more likely looking into such vehicles so that they can travel in their own space.

So just like we have a list of tiny house builders, we thought it was appropriate to start and build a list of van conversion companies. So here it is! We’ve also included a few companies that specialize in accessories and components for DIYers as well as professional van builders, as well as a few classified ads websites that specialize in the resale of such vehicles (van conversions). But for the most part, what you’ll find down here is a large list of van builders. Is there someone out there that we missed that you think should have made it to this list? Not to worry friend, you can send me a little note about it at the bottom of this page. 🙂

Route Del Sol All Electric Solar Motorhome 001

This is the story of Route Del Sol, an all-electric, solar-powered motorhome. This DIY motorhome build is very likely the most powerful solar-powered campervan in the world today and this is how it came to be.

Since that very first exchange with the ticket booth operator, I have grown much better at explaining just what it is I am driving. In the most technical way possible (for me) I exclaim that, this is a fully electric 2010 International EStar, it’s an ex-Pacific Gas & Electric owned cargo van converted into a DIY solar-powered electric campervan.”

Van Life Stand Up Desk via outsidenomad 001

This is one way you can get work done during van life using an outdoor stand up desk mounted on your van’s custom bumper. Yes, this is the story of a stand up desk mounted on the front bumper of this man’s van conversion!

This bumper happens to be an Aluminess van conversion specialty bumper, the adventurous mountain bike couple also use it to hang their hammocks, by the way. Plus the van lifer, @outsidenomad, is also using a FlexFixx balance board to make his stand up work session even better. Check it out below! And please, let us know what you think in the comments. I had never thought of this before and just think it’s awesome! How about you?

Wilderness Vans TransMoto Van Conversion B001

This is the TransMoto Van Conversion by Wilderness Vans. It’s definitely a one-of-a-kind custom van, but I’m pretty sure you can order one from them if you wanted to.

A used one recently sold for $99,000 USD earlier this year. It was a 2018 T350, 2wd, with 4700 miles. You can look at it below and if you like it enough, you can even have one ordered. See below for more info. It’s a nice adventure van with a garage that fits three dirt bikes! Plus inside, there’s seating for four (with seatbelts).
