The Van that started it all. The Field Adventure Vehicles (FAV) Classic.
Our heritage. The van that demonstrated overland van life is now in Modern Form. We build a steel reinforced fiberglass shell on the best 4x4 van system on the planet. Want the ultimate in overlanding? Then this is it.
There are really three major points in building out a van.
The first is deciding which manufacture chassis to use. The next is designing the layout. The final step is selecting the options to be installed.
Field Van offers a variety of uniquely designed, and well thought out floor plans. You can start with one of our premier plans that have been perfected over decades of van building or work with one of our experienced project managers to create something custom.
Furnaces, awnings, racks, wheels & tires and lots of other items. Our team is here to assist you in finding the best options for your van.
The interior is going to include flooring, extreme insulation, wall panels, trims, window coverings, and safety items like a fire extinguisher and Smoke & CO Detector. There are different options for the colors and materials.
The batteries of the van dictate how long one can run equipment on the van. It starts with a 200Ah AGM battery and more AGM batteries can be added. Another option is to upgrade to lithium batteries. This allows for more power in a smaller package that should have about double the lifespan of an AGM battery. They do have to be stored inside, so there has to also be some room to store in the floor plan.
We include LED lighting thoughout the van. There will be dimmable overhead lighting on the ceiling and reading lights throughout the van where appropriate. We also include a porch light on the rear passenger side of the van.
There are two of each 12V, 110V and USB outlets that can be placed throughout the van that work best with the floor plan. Plenty to cover most needs, but we can also add additional plugs if more are needed. There is also an exterior waterproof outlet on the rear passenger side. Finally the shore power inlet is typically located on the driver rear.
The system includes a 16G Fresh Water Tank and 12V water pump to get the water where it needs to go. We also include the galley sink and gray tank along with an exterior shower to assist in rinsing off. There is also a city water hook up on the driver rear along with all the necessary hoses.
Fuel fired vs propane
Our included fridge is an Isotherm 100 Classic, but if more space is needed, it can be upgraded to larger ones from both Isotherm and Norcold. For smaller vans or the space conscious, we also have smaller fridges that can be tucked in where needed.
