conversionvanConversion vans offer something that other vehicles do not. The conversion allows the owner to use the vehicle as a passenger or cargo van during the week, and a recreational vehicle on the weekends. Many have seats that fold down into beds in the back, are equipped with entertainment centers and have better insulation than other vehicles. This allows travel and camping all year long. There are ways to get the most out of your conversion van and help the environment at the same time.

1. Maintain The Entire Vehicle

Electrical systems, brakes, transmission and the engine should receive regular maintenance. This ensures that everything is in peak working condition. Maintained engines use less fuel than poorly maintained ones; this goes for both gasoline and diesel models. It also reduces the possibility of a breakdown on the road. Ensure the tires are properly inflated; this is one [...]

truck-van-wash-in-actionConversion vans aren’t like standard passenger vehicles. Not only are they larger, but they have many additional features and nooks and crannies. The sheer size and odd angles make it more difficult to wash in your driveway, but it is doable, and you can make the process much easier by using these tips.

Think Twice about Driving Through

Most coin-operated car washes will fit a non-hi-top conversion van and may seem like the simplest solution. In actuality, a drive-through may be more trouble than it’s worth. You’ll need to identify and protect all protruding aspects of the van, and due to the size and angles of the vehicle, you need to be wary of those hard brushes wearing down the finish.

Use a Sectional Approach

Proper cleaning requires drying by hand in a timely manner in order to avoid spots. That can be easier said than done [...]

591032_1It’s pretty typical to regularly drive past bottles, cans, and other recyclables in the road, but it’s not every day that bottle caps are able to slow traffic altogether. In Randy Gilliland’s case, he doesn’t actually aim to slow down passing cars, but that’s just what his bottle cap-engulfed van seems to do, no matter where he goes.

Gilliland, 52, of Florida, is a professional surveyor who is intrigued by mobile artistic designs. Originally, he constructed a queen-sized bed atop a 1969 EZ-go Golf Cart, which he also rebuilt. As he hitched the bed to the back of his 1995 Chevy Astro van, he questioned why he couldn’t turn that vehicle into a piece of art as well. So that’s just what he did.

These days, the service industry is oriented toward luxury. While it is certainly easy to imagine how luxury is defined in some ways, there are angles you might not have thought of right away. To get started in the luxury driving business, all it takes is a good driving record, a cheerful and helpful attitude, and a conversion van.

Bailing out weddings

Beyond a shadow of the doubt, one of the biggest problems that limousine companies have is running out of transportation options before the big day. It only takes a couple of vehicles breaking down for everything to start unraveling. In addition to utilizing your conversion van for a long list of potential customers, keep in mind that you can be the perfect backup plan for a business that is similar to the services you offer.

Furthermore, scheduling weddings is also helpful to you as a conversion van owner/operator. Since most of your [...]

My friend is looking to buy another vehicle. He really doesn’t have a choice—his current ride breaks down about three times a week!

I have been talking to him about getting a conversion van, but he is being a little bull-headed. Ok, he is being downright obstinate. He says he doesn’t need a van, he doesn’t haul stuff, what does he need a van for?

Well, he has a family…so even though he doesn’t “haul stuff”, he hauls people, which is more important. I explained to the knucklehead that conversion vans are the ultimate in luxury, comfort, entertainment and personalization. His van can be tailored to his exact needs and wants, and conversions are better equipped than any SUV. He stared at me with open mouth amazement!

I told him that conversion vans are one of the most versatile vehicles on the road, offering spacious interiors, luxurious amenities and road going comfort. Van Conversions combine [...]
