Inspired by his years in Central America guiding hikers through the mountains in chicken buses, Mat built his first camper van for a kitesurfing trip from Cape Cod to Key West and back. After the trip, he put the van up for sale and got a huge response. He decided to build one more, then another, then it became a business that kept growing!
Mat Rosa has a diverse background that naturally led to owning a business building vans. He grew up in Rhode Island working with his family’s construction business. He has spent most of his career exploring the globe as an outdoor adventure guide from Guatemala to the Philippines, boat captain, Executive Director of environmental non-profits, and renewable energy consultant. His goal for Mango Vans is offering a unique product for fellow explorers who appreciate minimalist designs blending natural materials with the latest advancements in off-grid power systems.
