Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a custom van conversion cost?


Our average price range for a full build is $30-50k. The price of the conversion depends on the design, components, and finishes that are selected. To get a ballpark estimate for your project, please fill out our contact form and we will send you a questionnaire to help us understand the scope of what you are envisioning.




How long does it take to build a custom van?


Our turnaround time for a full build is 10-14 weeks after the van arrives at our facility.




Does the customer provide the van?


Yes. We operate on a commissioned build basis, so you purchase the van of your choice and deliver it to us, and we take the conversion from there. If you need help selecting or sourcing a van for your build, we are happy to help!




What models of vans do you work on?


We specialize in converting ProMasters, Sprinters, and Transit vans of all lengths and heights. This includes the ProMaster City and Transit Connect.




Do you have any completed conversions ready to sell?


We very occasionally sell company spec vans that are built out and ready to hit the road. If we have a van available, it will be clearly listed as “For Sale” in our van gallery.




Do you offer partial build or component installation services?


We do! From building solar electrical systems to installing windows and fans, we have the expertise to help with your DIY build or upgrade your completed rig with new components. Fill out our contact form to let us know what you need help with and we will send you a price quote.




Can Out There Vans pick up or deliver the van?


While we strive to assist in all ways possible, we specialize in van conversions and do not personally transport or ship clients' vans. If you are unable to deliver or pick up your van in person, we are happy to help you coordinate a third party shipping company to transport your van.




Will Out There Vans convert ambulances, skoolies, etc?


We specialize in converting cargo vans and do not offer custom conversion services for ambulances, skoolies, mini skoolies, SUVs, or minivans at this time.




Do you install indoor showers in your vans?


While we have installed showers in previous van conversions, we no longer install indoor showers in the vans we build. Why? Floor space and water are at a premium in a camper van, and an indoor shower uses up an inordinate amount of both these resources. The average van has 60 sq ft of floor space, and an indoor shower will require approximately 6 sq feet of that floor space. Furthermore, an interior shower requires at least 25 gallons of fresh water storage and even then, the shower will blow through that fresh water supply quickly, especially with two people. Based on our own experience and input from fellow vanlifers, when you take these sacrifices of space and water into account, it's much more practical to shower at a campground, gym, or take a wet bath with a washcloth and baby wipes. We will, however, install an on demand hot water rear door shower unit for rinsing off.
