Building Your Adventure

Downeast Vans Logo

At Downeast Custom Vans we are passionate van lovers, merging road proven engineering with fun, creative design. Whether it’s help with a certain aspect of your build, or a full design and build out, we are here to help. Serving New England from our shop in Somersworth, NH.


Each build is a one-of-a-kind blend of form and function to meet your specific needs. Practical beauty is our goal - from functional ski/climbing mobile bases to beautiful weekend escape vans.

Electrical Systems

We engineer electrical systems and solar arrays to take your van truly off grid. From ultra low power LED lighting systems to power hungry induction stoves and AC systems, we design systems that fit your lifestyle.


We build hot & cold water delivery systems, full bathrooms and shower solutions as well as propane or diesel heating systems for winter camping.

Gear storage

We make every inch of space count in our vans. Our creative designs manage storage for everything from mountain bikes and climbing racks to spice jars.
