bringing the surf van to life

Taking inspiration from classic vans such as the Volkswagen Vanagon and modern camper conversions found throughout Europe, Solimar Adventure Co. vans are the perfect mix of artisan craftsmanship and modern convenience. 

We have dedicated the last few years to Research + Development; the functionality of the interior, features found on the exterior and the van's overall aesthetic. We've cut a lot of wood, screwed a bunch of screws and drank a few beers. 

Our first prototype, The Surf Van, honed our skills and tested our design theory. As a rental, this van provided us the invaluable feedback from our customers and helped us design and develop other van designs. Feedback also included requests for conversion commissions built in the same Solimar Adventure Co. style. If you are interested in #vanlife, but don't know where to start, drop us a line and let's see if we can help get you out on that open road.

Thoughtful + Functional Design. 

Smaller spaces require higher functionality. We design vans with multi-purpose spaces, which naturally free up space.

You'll find plenty of room in our perfectly planned space behind the back doors.  This area is complete with a Coleman two-burner stove, cooking equipment, cleaning kit, and an area for dry goods. Built-ins hold two folding camping chairs and two 4-ft collapsible dining tables. Two wooden cabinets on either side provide plenty of storage.
