THE ARTISTRY OF VAN CONVERSIONS

El Kapitan artisans create van conversions the way some artists work in paint or marble. Each project results in hand-crafted perfection fashioned in metal, hardwood, fine leathers, fabrics and electronics that stands as the ultimate expression of automotive artistry.

BORN IN THE LAND OF VAN CONVERSIONS

For more than 30 years we have been creating handcrafted perfection in conversion vans for discerning clients across the United States and in Russia, China, Japan, Europe and the Middle East. Our company opened in 1984 in Southern California, and was at the forefront of the evolution of conversion vans into luxury transportation.

WE DELIVER BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

El Kapitan is a certified Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Master Upfitter. We take pride in that and use the same high standards and precision when turning Mercedes Sprinters into the conversion vans people dream of owning. At El Kapitan, every van conversion project is designed for you to make your own story.
