The standard definition of a conversion van is a van in which the cargo space has been converted to a special purpose. Typically a conversion van is a full-sized cargo van that is sent to a third-party company to be outfitted for a variety of functions.
When people mention the term ‘Conversion Van’ many different things come to mind. Family vehicles, airport transportation, motorhomes, mobility-equipped vans; delivery service vehicles and cargo carriers are just some of the different types of functions conversion vans can have.
But what people don’t always know is that conversion vans can be just about ANYTHING you want them to be!!!
