Our story

In 1978, Vanworks was born out of the passion of our founder, Keith Hess. It all started with a simple yet transformative idea: to convert his Chevy van into a comfortable and versatile living space for his travels. As a carpenter by trade, he began tinkering around in his garage and ended up crafting a conversion that exceeded his own expectations. Then just one day later, he sold the van to an enthusiastic buyer and the rest is history.

For the exterior, you can choose from lift kits, front or rear bumper, roof racks, bike carriers, receiver hitch, ladders, running boards, vented screen doors, storage boxes, vented slider windows.

“To top it off, our van was delivered on time.”

“It was invaluable to have a builder who knows what options are available, what works and what doesn’t work, and what options weren’t worth the money for our needs.”
