Our Story

Nathan Doody had a dream to convert a van, drive it out west, and start a new chapter of his life. Since he’s a carpenter by trade, Nathan custom-built his campervan and set out across the United States from Maine to California, experiencing iconic American vistas along his epic road trip. When he reached California, he set down roots in Oceanside’s beach city and sold the van.

As luck would have it, Derek Mason was looking for an escape from his 9-5 corporate life –– he wanted to buy a van to travel south to Central America. Derek found Nate’s listing and one person’s grand adventure led to another. Derek drove for a year, weaving his way to El Salvador and back.

When he returned, the idea of a restricting corporate job was not a soul-fulfilling option following his trip of a lifetime.

After much thought, Derek decided to share his passion for sustainable and authentic travel with others.

He contacted Nate with a vision and the two of them partnered up to create the ultimate Sprinter camper van.

Now, our mission is to provide travelers and adventurers with a comfortable and reliable vessel in which to pursue their dreams.
