Our story

In 1978, Vanworks was born out of the passion of our founder, Keith Hess. It all started with a simple yet transformative idea: to convert his Chevy van into a comfortable and versatile living space for his travels. As a carpenter by trade, he began tinkering around in his garage and ended up crafting a conversion that exceeded his own expectations. Then just one day later, he sold the van to an enthusiastic buyer and the rest is history.

I bought my BaseCamp second-hand from a dealership in Colorado and flew out from the Boston area to pick it up. I called Dale to ask if I could get a “New Owner” walk-through and he invited me to stop by. Barry walked me through the ins-and-outs of my new van and then the guys in the shop did some touch-up work to re-seal the roof fan and I was on my way. They couldn’t have been any nicer or more accommodating. A+ Customer Service and A+ people. Highly recommend this amazing company.

Vanworks installed an Espar heater in my sprinter van. They were able to get me in their schedule very quickly, unlike most van converters. When the initial heater Vanworks installed stopped working, (flooded due to high elevation) they replaced it with a newer model. I’ve been running it non stop for the past 3 weeks and haven’t run into any issues. I highly recommend Vanworks, their front desk crew is very knowledgeable and welcoming.

We picked up our van almost a year ago. We use it year round for both summer and winter adventures in Colorado. Barry has been nothing but accommodating to our user errors, upgrades and buildout education throughout the year. We really encourage you to go check out VanWorks in Fort Collins if you are looking to get your van built out.

I could not have asked for a better experience from start to finish. From working with Dale during the buying process, taking delivery with Chris, and then figuring some things out after with Barry……..the whole Vanworks team was simply awesome! Highly recommend!

I had my suspension upgraded On my Jayco terrain. Prior, the ride was so rough it was almost unusable on mild off-road. It’s a night and day difference. Harlan is a real expert with this stuff

We had an amazing experience with Vanworks! After discovering them at the Ultimate RV show in Denver, we decided to check out their headquarters in Fort Collins the following Monday, and were blown away by the craftsmanship of their vans. A week later, we purchased our brand new 2022 Sprinter camper van and couldn't be happier. It's the perfect fit for our lifestyle and we're excited to make it our home full-time. The team at Vanworks, including Dale, Barry, Chris, and Ryan, were all incredible to work with. They listened to our needs and worked with us to make sure our van had everything we needed to be able to work and live out of it full-time. They were patient with our questions, informative about the process, and made us feel like valued customers throughout the entire experience. We highly recommend Vanworks to anyone looking for a high-quality, custom-built camper van. The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is unparalleled. Thank you to the team at Vanworks for making our dream a reality!

My first time dealing with them. New tires and rims. Phenomenal to work with, Harlan got me in and out with barely enough time to enjoy my coffee. No "Nichol and diming", they just took care of everything.
