He is not a surfer and does not realize that there is a demand for this type of van.

    I created a page on our website where you can tell us what kind of van you want built and what equipment you would include. My goal is to get surfers everywhere to fill out this form and convince my boss that we NEED to build this van! So follow the link below and lets make this happen. If he sees the demand, he will build the van!

    don't forget surf (ladder) racks. should be able to hold 10 sups. 10 lb's. 5 or 10 stuffed board bags.
    you don't want to look at a surf vehicle and…wonder…where the boards go (??).

    There are two kinds of van drivers out there. And most of us fit into this category. Not the 50k kind.

    I spent 1200 bucks on my van put about 300 dollars worth of plywood and materials into making it so I could get changed in the winter, cook food, and not worry about mold and mildew when I dont feel like/dont have time to go home before work.

    Yes that is definitely an option, and if you have the time and tools to do that, that's perfect for you. But a lot of people don't have the time. Another advantage to buying one new is that you can finance it. So rather than paying a big chunk of money up front, you can get one for only $700 out of your pocket (of course you gotta pay that each month). The price would be similar to an SUV, but we think a Van is a better choice because you have more room for equipment, gear, sleeping, etc...

    We aren't looking for luxury vans just something that can sleep 2-3 ppl and with an engine in good shape that wont break down often
    I completely agree with this... all the forms that have been submitted so far are confirming this as well. Focusing on utility over luxury will definitely be key to success.

    $150K+?! Dude I'm sure you have much more knowledge when it comes to vans than I, but for 150 large that econoline better have some serious power to go with it, and I'm talkin baja prerunner power. I can't imagine a lifted van costing that much. Unless it's got whale pen!s leather seats like the dartz suv then there is no reason for that high of a price, even new. There's a dealership up here on rt130 in Burlington that sells lifted trucks with a factory warranty and they go for about $50-60k. I could probably pick up a used e150 throw a lift kit with beefy tires on there and a few other goodies all for under 10 grand.
