Vancouver, Washington, Campervan Upfitter: Van Haus

Similar to many other campervan upfitters, Van Haus was created when founder Erik decided to build his own custom campervan to more easily and comfortably pursue his passions—wherever they happened to take him. The experience was empowering, and after Erik’s friends saw his work and began asking if he could convert campervans for them, too, he knew he had something marketable.

Van Haus Conversions was born, and together with a skilled team of craftsmen, Erik now offers three different floor plans as well as custom projects to fulfill the needs of adventure athletes, remote workers, and weekend warriors. Van Haus currently works on either the Ford Transit or Mercedes Benz Sprinter platforms, but they have also previously upfitted the Ford Econoline.


Van Haus Campervan Layouts

Van Haus offers three pre-designed campervan layouts to fit a variety of travelers’ needs by prioritizing between storage space and belted passenger seating. All three feature a driver’s side galley with a refrigerator, sink, overhead storage, noise-reduction mat, and four-season insulation. But this is where the similarities end.


The Watson– The Watson campervan was named after a waterfall on the Umpqua River, and it is the most likely choice for one to two occupants who want a balance between comfort and gear storage space.


It features a pull-out bed platform with a queen-sized mattress, dedicated dinette area, 200 amp-hour lithium battery system with roof-mounted solar, and hydronic heat with continuous hot water (gas or diesel-powered when off-grid).

The Watson has a 23-gallon freshwater tank, 16-gallon graywater tank, and the total vehicle weight (full water with two passengers) comes out to approximately 8,100 pounds. Starting price: $69,000, vehicle not included.


The LemoloLemolo means wild or untamed in Chinook. This campervan layout is best suited for those who need extra storage space to bring adventure gear along on their journeys, in addition to having belted seating for three (driver included).


This layout shares almost identical specs to the Watson but forgoes a dinette in favor of an expansive gearage (under-bed storage space) and relies on gas or diesel hot air heating instead of a hydronic system. The total vehicle weight with two passengers and a full water tank is approximately 8,140 pounds. Starting price: $56,000, vehicle not included.


The Toketee– The Chinook word toketee translates to graceful or pretty, and it describes the layout perfectly. This simple campervan is built around belted seating for five passengers (including the driver), which makes it an excellent choice for a family that doesn’t mind packing into a small space (sleeping pads on the floor) or setting up a ground tent to more comfortably accommodate everyone at camp.

The vehicle’s rear bench seat converts into a 50-inch by 74-inch sofa bed, and a modular Lagun table provides an adaptable surface for dining or working. Systems capacities are identical to the Lemolo, as is the gas or diesel hot air heating system. Starting price: $49,500, vehicle not included.
