El Kapitan’s Passenger Upgrade Conversion Van offers custom features and upgrades that turn stock Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger vans or Ford Transit Passenger Van Wagons into VIP vehicles equally suitable for family outings and hosting business guests.

We build on the superb interiors of these passenger vans, adding luxury and convenience enhancements that go well beyond anything on the manufacturer’s lists. You get El Kapitan’s most popular conversion van upgrades at a price substantially lower than a total custom conversion.

Sofa Bed Seat

El Kapitan adds a 58-inch forward-facing, three person folding sofa seat at the rear of the Passenger Upgrade Conversion Van. It has two three-point, wall mounted shoulder seat belts and a sofa lap belt for the center position. Fold down for a spacious sleeping area.


A 24-inch Samsung flat screen TV with HDMI connection and black acrylic fascia is mated with a premium Alpine sound system, including speakers, subwoofers and amplifier to provide a superior viewing and listening experience.


We upgrade the flooring with high-end, woodgrain vinyl for a rich, classic look that’s easy to maintain. For maximum durability, we recommend Lonseal vinyl flooring.


Keep perishables in Dometic coolers in the front and passenger areas and store drinks safely in lighted cup holders. Stow loose items in vinyl side wall caddies on driver and passenger sides, and in overhead custom cabinets or cubbies.


We install a 12-volt auxiliary battery for extra capacity. We also paint the exterior air conditioning cover and rubber coat the power sliding step.

The Passenger Upgrade Conversion Van by El Kapitan is a wonderfully cost-effective way to enjoy even more luxury and convenience touches in your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger van or Ford Transit Passenger Van Wagon.
