The Art of Designing A Conversion Van

Designing a custom van involves a blend of creativity, innovation, and practicality. Here’s a glimpse into the process of crafting a custom van that perfectly fits your lifestyle.

The journey begins with an initial

consultation where we get to know you and your vision. We discuss your lifestyle, your travel goals, and your must-haves for the van. This is where we gather essential information about your preferences, such as:

  • Are you planning weekend getaways, extended road trips, or full-time van life?

  • What activities do you enjoy? Hiking, surfing, skiing, or mountain biking? This helps us determine the type of storage and equipment you’ll need.

  • Do you require a full kitchen, a shower, a workspace, or specific sleeping arrangements? Once we have a clear understanding of your needs, our design team gets to work. Using advanced software, we create detailed 3D renderings of your custom van. This allows you to visualize the layout and make adjustments before construction begins. Key design elements include:

  • The layout is the backbone of your custom van. We consider factors like accessibility, space utilization, and flow to create a design that’s both functional and comfortable.

  • From rustic wood finishes to sleek modern designs, we offer a range of materials and finishes to match your style.

  • Based on your needs, we incorporate essential features like solar panels, water tanks, heating systems, and custom cabinetry.

Final Steps To Building Your Dream Van

With the design finalized, our skilled craftsmen begin the building process. At Van Sharks, we pride ourselves on our meticulous attention to detail and our commitment to quality.

The construction phase involves:

  • We start by reinforcing the van’s structure and adding insulation to ensure comfort in various weather conditions.

  • Our team installs the electrical and plumbing systems, including solar panels, batteries, and water tanks, to provide you with all the modern conveniences.

  • Next, we focus on the interior build-out, crafting custom cabinetry, installing appliances, and adding the final touches that make your van feel like home.
