Welcome to our page! Nestled in Big Bear City, California, just a stone’s throw from LA, Orange County, and San Diego, we are a dedicated team of van builders turning your vanlife dreams into reality with bespoke, innovative, and practical van conversions.

Starting as a passionate family-run workshop in sunny San Diego, we’ve grown since 2021 into a larger Big Bear facility equipped with a CNC machine to craft even more intricate designs. Our electric bed-over-dinette design is a hit with families, reflecting our commitment to creating personalized family-friendly spaces.

We’ve crafted over 65 custom camper vans to date, each featuring unique touches like real tile bathrooms, state-of-the-art heating systems, space-saving electric beds, discreet pull-out toilets, ambient LED lighting, and the use of premium materials like acacia, bamboo, rattan, and cedar. We don’t just stop there; our builds include outdoor rear patios, rooftop decking, efficient 12v A/C systems, four-season insulation, and pre-build video modeling to ensure your van is everything you imagined.

We’re proud to elevate each van to new heights and grateful to every client who has entrusted us with their van. Let’s make your van conversion exceptional together!

Success Stories

Vanlifetrader.com was amazing! Not only do they display the listings beautifully, but the packages they offer are very worth it. My van was listed for about a week and it sold! Jon was really helpful when I deleted my listing and needed to repost it and he answered right away and was more than helpful. The fact that they post the listings on their Instagram with 200k followers alone is enough. I would definitely recommend this website for anyone who wants to buy/ sell a van!
