Can I get a 4x4 vandoit?
The 4x4 conversion is done by Quigley 4x4. The conversion comes with a 2-inch lift kit. It would be up to the customer to add all-terrain tires should they choose to. We recommend that any tire follows the manufacturer's tire rating guides.
Can I get a hot shower for my vandoit?
Yes, we have 2 shower set ups. Currently our water supply and water pump is at the back of the van for a shower from the exterior utilizing a mat and shower stall. The other shower is called the Evershower, which can be used inside or outside the van.
How does what vandoit adds affect the factory warranty?
The factory warranty stays in full force. Ford employs the best engineers and run the components through a plethora of safety and durability tests. We don't compromise the integrity of Ford's safety and engineering but rather compliment them. Our vans have the side curtain air bags and Ford safety tested seats. Unlike a class B motorhome, which would start with a stripped van and then add in components, we did not structurally or mechanically modify the van so our conversion has no impact on the manufacturers warranty-- which is an advantage over most DIY or competitor's vans.
Can I get financing for my vandoit?
Yes, at vandoit you are able to obtain financing for your custom van. We have competitive financing available through our automotive group division. We also offer RV financing, which would allow you finance up to 15 years.
Can I run heat and AC off of my vandoit?
Yes, however the AGM battery system will only run the air conditioning for about an hour or two depending on multiple factors (what else is turned on, how hot it is outside, what the thermostat is set to, etc.).
The best solution for running the AC is by using shore power or upgrading to the lithium power system.
What is vandoit's warranty?
Vandoit gets our components and products from top shelf suppliers who have support in addition to vandoit customer service support. These products carry their own warranty and vandoit follows their warranty with regard to needed labor. The warranty of the actual build follows the warranty of the actual van. The Ford warranty is 3 years 36,000 mile warranty for the van, so the vandoit build warranty follows the same structure.
Can I get a diesel on a vandoit?
The answer is absolutely YES! However, we desire to advise our customers to order a diesel for the right reasons. It is NOT our desire to sell more options and get the price of your adventure van higher. Please visit our page on diesel vs. gas engines HERE!
Can I trade you my vehicle, camper, or RV?
Yes, we will actively trade for your vehicle. There are actually many additional items we will take on a trade including boats, motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, etc. Our gurus will collect all the information and pictures for the item being traded in and work with financing to get a value for your trade item.
Can I haul motorcycles, four wheelers or other toys?
Yes, the gear slide can approximately 750 pounds. A ramp would be required for loading of most powersport toys. Upon request, vandoit would provide an area for the ramp to hook into if needed. The flooring is commercial and designed to handle about any type of spill. Also, the extended length DO package offers a larger gear slide and space for these type of things.
Did you design the custom fittings?
Yes, our engineering and design team designs and assembles 100% of the non-electronic conversion components. Most of the van components are exclusive and proprietary to vandoit. With regards to our solar system, we utilized top shelf equipment providers and configured how the system works. We have true off-grid smart solar with capabilities well above the typical solar system. With audio and video, we utilize equipment from very high-end, trusted suppliers like JL Audio and Samsung Video.
Do You Offer Pop Up Tops?
We DO offer high roof vans, which a very tall person (under 6’4”) can stand in. We also offer mid roof vans. A person about 5’7” and below would be comfortable standing in a mid roof. We DO NOT offer pop-tops or tent-camper type tops to the van for the following reasons you can read about HERE!
Can I get an extended length van?
We can utilize the extended length van for the DO package only. The extended length van has the same wheelbase as the long chassis. The wheelbase is 148". Due to the wheelbase being the same, maneuverability and turn radius stay similar to that of the long chassis. Additionally, the extended length chassis is equipped with dually wheels in the rear to offer more stability and a smoother drive than the long chassis offers.
Can I get a kitchen, sink, microwave, cooktop, refrigerator etc?
Yes, we offer three different size Dometic fridges. As of now we offer cooler accessible fridges for increased electric efficiencies, lower condensation, and more storage - occupied space ratio. Due to different clients wanting different size, wattage, and brand burners, microwaves, or other kitchen appliances vandoit does not offer these accessories. It is up to the client to shop for these accessories. However, vandoit equips the vans with the electric capacity to run these items."
How did vandoit get started?
Vandoit is a brand owned by Kline Van and Specialty Rental which evolved from Kline Motors, started by Woodrow Wilson Kline (Woody) in 1947 selling the brand of Kaiser Frazier. Vans and RVs have always been a part of the Kline Companies. Kline Van, has up-fitted passenger vans for companies for years. Check out the page "It's A Family Thing" to learn more about how vandoit started building custom adventure vans.
What do you mean “modular”?
Meaning components can be added and removed as needed. This also leads to the term “convertible” as in convertible between an adventure van and family/passenger van. Almost all of the components (beds, kitchen pod, water tanks, portable hot water, etc.) in our custom van builds can be moved, converted, removed and reinstalled.
What if I like a van you have but don’t like the color?
We can change the color to whatever you want! We have partnered with graphic artists and a graphic wrap company so that we can assist our customers with making the van look exactly the way they want it to. Check out examples of our custom wraps here!
