AIRSTREAM FAQ'S

Do you have a finished Airstream we can buy?

We mostly work on Airstreams supplied by clients, but occasionally have a demo model for sale, or Airstreams we have acquired for conversion. Please see the "Currently Available" section.

 

Do you work on RV's / trailers other than Airstream?

At this point, we do not. We chose to specialize on this platform. 

 

Do you do RV Repairs?

We do not, please try an RV repair shop. 

 

How long does it take to complete a conversion?

If we have a spot in our queue, a full Airstream gut and rebuild will take us three months or more. We also generally need a minimum of 4-8 weeks to order in all the parts.

 

Can we do part of the build? Or build it over time?

Yes. You could do the gutting process. We can also do up to a rough-in phase (plumbing electrical, insulation and walls) if you want to do all the cabinetry and finishing. 

 

How far forward do we need to book?

We have had production waitlists of up to 6 months at times, but get in touch; sometimes clients have to postpone projects, and we may be able to squeeze you in.

 

Do you use non-toxic or environmentally friendly 

Yes! With backgrounds in sustainability consulting we aim to use non-toxic and sustainable materials wherever possible. 

 

How much do they cost?

The full conversion prices range from $90,000 up to $200,000, not including the trailer. Rough-ins or partial builds for less. 

 

Where are you located and when can I stop by?

We are located near downtown Victoria, B.C. We are by appointment only and will give you directions when we book an appointment. We are not open to the public.

 

Do you work with US based clients?

Yes! We have worked with several clients, and can help arrange shipping and brokerage across the border if you are unable to drive up. 

 

How long have you been in business? What is your capacity?

We have been in business since 2017, and have done 4 dozen Sprinter conversions, and nearly a dozen Airstreams since 2020. We have a crew of twelve, plus half a dozen external subcontractors. We have 5000 square feet of warehouse, with capacity for up to 5 builds at once, and usually have a queue of 6-12 builds ongoing.

SPRINTER FAQ'S

Do you have a finished van we can buy?

We mostly work on vans supplied by clients, but occasionally have a demo model for sale. Please see the "Currently Available" section.

 

Do you work on vans other than Mercedes Sprinters?

At this point, we do not. We chose to specialize on this platform. 

 

Why did you choose the Mercedes?

We chose to work on the Sprinters because of the build quality, the 4x4 option, and the diesel fuel. We do not use propane. We like the safety of diesel and the convenience of only filling one tank on the road. All our heaters and stoves are made to run on diesel.We also like the diesels for the future potential to burn R100 (a commercially refined biodiesel used in the Vancouver City Fleet). 

 

How do I start?

Please complete the "Design your Van" form in the Design Inquiries tab, and we’ll be in touch. We also suggest going out and driving the various Sprinter models to decide which suits you best. 

 

How long does it take to complete a conversion?

 Our CORE conversions take 4-6 weeks, and full conversions up to 3 months of shop production time.  if we have a spot in our queue. We generally need a minimum of 4-6 weeks to order in all the parts, and build the cabinetry depending on the build. 

 

How far forward do we need to book?

We have had production waitlists of up to 6 months at times, but get in touch; sometimes clients have to postpone projects and we may be able to squeeze you in. 

 

Can we do part of the build? Or build it over time?

Yes! We designed the CORE system for tradies who prefer to finish the vans themselves, but want us to put in the systems to get them going. Others start with the CORE, and have us build it out over time. 

 

Do you use non-toxic or environmentally friendly 

Yes! With backgrounds in sustainability consulting we aim to use non-toxic and sustainable materials wherever possible. 

 

Do you supply the vans?

We do not, but we can help put you in touch with dealers, and can help recommend what to look for in a van. We do not take any referral fees or make any money from the vans themselves. 

 

How much do they cost?

The conversion prices range for $25,000 for a CORE build, with full conversions starting around $65,000 up to $100,000.
