Safe and Sonder Vans: NORTH Family Van

We’re excited to introduce you to a new-to-us van-building company called Safe + Sonder Vans. This is their latest conversion which is for sale, called the “North.” Besides the incredible craftsmanship, what makes this van so unique is that it’s a true family vehicle! It features two swivel seats for adults and a bench seat with seatbelts for three more people.

In order to sleep everyone, there’s a fixed queen bed in the back of the van and then bunk beds across from the kitchen for up to two more people. A separate Luno bed provides sleeping for the fifth passenger on top of the bench seats. There’s upper cabinet storage all around the van in order to fit clothing and other necessary supplies for multiple people. What do you think of this design?

Professional Van Conversion with Bunk Beds

The mini fridge is tucked under the main bed.

A bench seat provides a safe spot for all travelers.

There are some cabinets up next to the seats.

The bunks create a cozy spot for kids to sleep.

The top bunk has a little window.

I like that they built the ladder into the bunks so you don’t trip on it.

The main bed has a big window!

Extra cabinets at the foot and head of the bed for clothing storage.

Recessed lighting along the middle of the van provides light.

The flip-up counter space lets you prep meals.

Both chairs swivel to face the bench seat.

A fan provides airflow and ventilation.

A nice look at the storage.

The only thing it might need is a table here!

    This is cool! I really like this. Love the bunks and the bench seat. A simple folding table that stores under the bench seat would suffice. This is cool!
