Camper Conversion FAQ



Why would I buy an old run-down school bus and convert it?

It doesn't have to be an old vehicle, we convert new vans and buses as well.

We will convert (almost) anything you bring us as long as it runs well and will last you a long time! The last thing we want to do is build you your dream camper and have the vehicle give you nothing but troubles.

Where do i find a vehicle?

We can help you find the vehicle/find one for you!

We have developed great partnerships to provide well maintained new and used vans and buses!

We can even pick your vehicle up and deliver it if that makes your life easier.

Do you do the mechanical work?

Our shop does NOT touch the mechanical work on the vehicle, that includes suspension lifts etc.

We contract out the mechanical work with people that we know and trust to do the work properly so you are 100% satisfied with the conversion/mechanical work that needs to be done.

I don't live anywhere near you… Can I still have a build done by you?

Absolutely, we work with clients from all over the world.

We can also bring your vehicle to our shop and drop it off to make the full process as convenient for you as possible.

What's the average build time?

The average build takes 2-4 months, depending on the complexity, as every build is custom made to your satisfaction.

These layouts seem complex, can you plan it all for me?

We can literally handle everything for you from the sourcing of the vehicle, to the planning of the layouts, to the delivery of the vehicle!

You can also be as hands on as you want from bringing us the vehicle, to giving us a layout (or ideas) to make happen to picking up the vehicle!

What Kind of cool stuff can i have in my conversion?

The options are really unlimited from design options to additional luxuries.

  • Custom cabinetry and storage
  • Solar Power
  • Fully plumbed systems & showers
  • Awnings
  • Roof racks
  • Audio upgrade/entertainment systems
  • Bunk beds
  • Roof top decks
  • Additional belly storage
  • Roof raises/pop-tops
  • Toy & gear haulers
  • Heating, air conditioners & fans
  • Full Kitchens (full sized fridges, ovens
  • and more.

If you can dream it, let's make it happen!

Campervan Rental FAQ



What is the payment method and cost?

A refundable damage deposit of $500 is required at pick-up but will be back in your pocket within seven days after dropping off, assuming the camper van is in great shape, fuel is full and no other policies have been broken as per our Rental Agreement.

A cleaning fee of $50 dollars will be added to the final bill of all rentals so we can keep them spotlessly clean and well looked after for you and other adventurers!

Is there an age requirement to rent?

For insurance reasons we require 21 years of age or older to rent one of our camper vans.
