Comments Off on How Many Conversion Vans Are Sold Each Year?
Not that long ago Conversion Vans were a niche product. They were produced, but it was mostly companies looking for utility vehicles, people buying mobility vans, and the occasional recreational van consumer that was buying them.
There were times when the production and sale of consumer vans was as small as just a couple of hundred vehicles per year.
All of that has changed.
Well, one of the bigger motivations was actually the Covid-19 pandemic, and with it, increased interest in DIY projects, camping, and road tripping, and yes, #VanLife!
While it’s hard to get an exact number on the surge in demand, (in part because plenty of people have bought conversion vans that have yet to be produced!), the conversion van market is currently valued at 6.5 Billion USD, and it’s expected to increase to 8.1 Billion USD by 2030.

Comments Off on New RAM Conversion Vans vs. New GMC Conversion Vans: Here’s the Difference
When you are looking for your next conversion van, the van that it is based on is just as important as the conversions you choose.

This easier conversion comes from the RAM van’s comparatively larger doors and lower height for stepping in than the GMC van. [...]
Comments Off on Why A Used Conversion Van Can Be A Good Option To Consider
If you have a large family, you know you need the right type of transportation. You need something roomy enough to drive your entire crew around, and a used conversion van is the perfect option. Check out some reasons why you should drive off the lot in a used conversion van today.
The Comfortable Choice
SUVs might be roomy, but they aren’t nearly as spacious as conversion vans are. Let’s start at the front. The pilot seating in the front is spacious and comfortable, giving each person his or her own space. You can stretch out and relax during those long road trips.
When it comes to the back, your passengers will have so much room they won’t know what to do with themselves. These vans have seating for seven or more in the back, so you can sit brothers and sisters away from each other to avoid fights. You can even bring the entire [...]
