Recreational Van Conversions Becoming More Popular

Posted on May 16, 2016

Matt Carr stepped into a Sprinter conversion van and explained why he hopes such small-gear haulers could be the next big thing for the Eugene, Oregon company he just bought.

Oregon Motorcoach Center converted the commercial van for Mercedes-Benz of Eugene and plans to convert more vehicles. Carr expects demand from outdoor enthusiasts. Depending on customer request, the company can outfit vans to hold an ATV, carry snowboards or hold stand-up paddleboards.

About 30% of the 100 Sprinter vans Eric Voss, commercial vans manager at Mercedes-Benz of Eugene, sells each year are destined for conversion.
