Featured Campervan Upfitter :: Field Van

field van 1

Offering custom campervan builds in Fresno, California, and Reno, Nevada, Field Van is a family-owned upfitter comprised of 75 skilled employees who have completed over 5000 campervan builds. Across their entire crew they have a combined 500+ years of experience working on recreational vehicles, so rest assured, they know what they are doing.

Field Van offers four different floorplan categories which they can install in a variety of van chassis including the Sprinter, Transit, E-350, Savana, Metris, or Promaster. Within each of these categories, there are additional layout options for short or long wheel-base vans that prioritize between living space, gear storage, or belted seating for additional passengers. They also have a custom category for customers who want to create something completely one-of-a-kind.

Having toured a large number of custom campervans during my time on the road, I’ve really come to appreciate builds with a completely open central corridor leading from the dash all the way to the rear doors. It’s not necessarily the most efficient use of space, but it makes for a campervan that allows you to move around more freely, with an interior space that feels larger than lofted-bed designs.

In Field Van’s line of campers, the Canyon series of floorplans make use of this central corridor. They specifically suggest this layout for shorter wheelbase vans (as I mentioned above, it makes for an open, larger-feeling interior).

 

Field Van Canyon Floorplan

Within the Canyon range of floorplans, Field Van offers two different layouts referred to as C-1 and C-2.

 

The C-1 floor plan retains the front driver and passenger seats and outfits the remainder of the cargo van with storage, a galley, and convertible seating/sleeping space. With this floor plan, there are three lap belts integrated into the convertible couch, making it possible to legally haul around 4 passengers.

The C-2 floor plan retains the core features found in the C-1, but prioritizes additional belted seating for passengers. With the C-2 option, belted seating for up to 8 people (including the driver) is possible. All seats behind the driver and front passenger seat are installed on tracks, allowing them to be removed to create additional cargo space should you need it.

Options for Further Customization

Prospective clients should look at Field Van’s Canyon series of floorplans as a starting point for their campervan ambitions. Additional equipment can be added to provide an enhanced level of performance and practicality. Some common additions and upgrades that are often incorporated include:

  • Additional AGM batteries or a Lithium battery system
  • Solar Panels
  • Second vehicle alternator
  • Air conditioning
  • Propane or fuel-fired heating
