Spoiler alert: we love chatting all things Wayfarer Vans.

Our team of Journey Architects are camper van gurus that spend their days talking with outdoor enthusiasts like you via phone, text, email…. or all the above. They’ve yet to find a question they can’t answer. 

While many inquiries pop up each day, some surface time and again. Below, we captured the nine questions we get most often.

1. What vans do you convert? 

We currently offer camper van conversions for the following vehicles:

  • RAM Promaster 136” wheel base, high roof (years 2014 to current)
  • RAM Promaster 159” wheel base, high roof (years 2014 to current)
  • Ford Transit 148” wheel base, high roof, long cargo (years 2015 to current)
  • Ford Transit 148” wheel base, mid roof, long cargo (years 2015 to current)

Our conversions cannot be installed in any other van make or model as our products are designed specific to each van in our lineup. 

Heads up: we do not offer Sprinter, Nissan, or Transit Connect conversions, and our conversions are not compatible with passenger, crew vans, or extended vans.

2. How much do Wayfarer Vans cost?

We offer one of the most economically priced, complete camper vans on the market. Our base kits range from $21,200 – $24,500 + tax, and installation is included free with all builds. The price of a new van ranges from $48,000 – $62,000, while used vans are available at a wide range of prices depending on age and condition. All in, you can expect to spend between $69,000 and $86,000 on a base conversion and new van depending which one you choose.

3. What comes with the base conversion?

Each Wayfarer Van comes standard with the following: 

  • Foundation – floor, cargo tracks, walls, 100% wool insulation, soft panels
  • Bed – upgraded 5” thick memory foam mattress (54” wide x 6’1” sleeping surface), bed platform with ventilation grooves, and platform
  • Furniture – kitchen galley with fold down leaf (includes 5-gallon fresh and gray water tanks, sink, and hand pump), high-back boot box, Lagun swivel table, bungee shelves
  • Finishing Touches – integrated LED puck lights in the ceiling, insulated partition to separate the cab, magnetic window coverings for your rear factory windows

Please note that minor variations exist between our base conversions. For example, Wilma (low-roof Transit, pictured left) has soft pocket storage over one side of the bed, while Wilford (high-roof Transit, pictured right) has cabinets all around.

Looking for more features and functions? You can add on a wide variety of accessories ahead of your install, or at any time down the road. Things like our Propex heater, vent fans, vented windows, upper cabinets, Dometic cooler, GoalZero 1500x battery, and more! 

4. Do you supply the van? 

We do not supply the van, however we make the process of getting one incredibly easy. Our Journey Architects can connect you with one of our dealership partners, or you can bring in your own used van. 

For those interested in a new vehicle, our dealership partners for Dodge and Ford can get vans with a variety of combinations that are otherwise hard to find, such as: dual swivel seats, rear backup camera, bluetooth, cruise control, navigation, tow package, windows in the sliding and rear doors, and exterior color options. Going through our dealer partners for a new van is a no-haggle experience, and you can even roll the cost of the kit and van together. 

5. Do you sell furniture items and interior components individually? 

We do not sell individual components (bed, galley, boxes, etc.) to the public. Accessories can be purchased individually, but take note of the product descriptions. Most of our accessories will only work in a Wayfarer Van as all of our components are designed to work together. We don’t want to see a Franken-van out at the trailhead, so we reserve the right to cancel and refund orders placed by non-Wayfarians for our own accessories.

6. Do you offer custom work or modifications? 

Nope! We do one thing, and we do it really well: building simple, high quality, complete camper van conversions. Our builds are specific to each van in our lineup, allowing us to provide one of the most affordable camper van conversions on the market. Our prices are less than a third the cost of many custom builds and our installs take just 1-2 days, not months on end. Minimal time creating your van = maximum time creating memories.

7. Where are you located?

We proudly make our vans in Colorado – one of our favorite places to camp and adventure! Most of the components for our conversions are handcrafted at our shop in Colorado Springs where we design, assemble, and install our conversions. 

Far away from Colorado? We understand getting here can be tough which is why we offer a nationwide shipping program that includes pickup and/or delivery. The best part? We cover the cost one-way up to $2,000. Get the details here.

8. How long will it take to get my camper van? 

Our lead time varies depending on the current demand for builds. Over the past year, our lead time has ranged from 2-8 weeks from the time you make your purchase or your van arrives from the dealership. Drop us a note on our contact form for the most up-to-date production timeline. Once you arrive at our shop, installation is completed in just 2-3 days, not weeks on end. We build everything before your install day to give you the fastest possible conversion while maintaining the highest standards.

9. What is your warranty policy? 

We proudly stand behind our work. If an element of your conversion has manufacturing defects or a problem due to our workmanship within one year from your install or ship date, we will take care of you at our Colorado Springs shop at no charge. If you can’t visit our shop in person, we will work with you to ship small items (please note that some large components are not able to be shipped).

We also repair components outside of the warranty period or damage due to accidents or normal wear and tear, aka the dog ate my van cushions, at a reasonable charge.
