Manufacturers of Conversion Vans
Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, etc. are Manufactures of Vans, but not Conversion Vans. They make the base unit and then deliver it to an "Upfitter" to be customized. These upfitters are listed below.
When looking for just the right van for your needs, we recommend visiting as many Manufacturer Websites as possible, to see what options are available. There are literally 100's of options. We do not list Dealers on this page - only the actual "Upfitters". Each "Upfitter" can provide you with the necessary Dealer Information when you are ready to make your purchase.
The Van Conversion business declined rapidly in the 1990's... leaving just a handful of Authorized companies. We use the term "Authorized" loosely, perhaps "Approved" would be a better choice. Although anyone can convert a van - certain safety criteria are generally applied to the "Approved" converters (Those officially recognized by the Big Automakers providing the Base Vans). Many of these Approved Upfitters are small companies and do not have websites. We list the sites we know of... and are happy to make additions to this list (See Contact Us in the Info Menu to send us a suggestion) Please contact the manufacturers directly with your questions and concerns about their products.
Links below take you directly to the Van Manufacturers Website. Much of the information listed here is taken directly from the Companies Marketing Materials.
