Our Story

Vanlife Conversions founder Oli van sat atop one of his vans

Get to know Vanlife Conversions

Our journey started back in 2018 when founders Oli and Emily decided to convert a van to travel around Europe. They loved the freedom vanlife offered and waking up to a new view each morning as they travelled through France and Italy in their van named Archie. They swapped the 9-5 to join the vanlife movement full time and started the business to help others do the same.​

Since then Vanlife Conversions has been creating premium contemporary van conversions to help others get on the road and create the lifestyle they desire.
