My husband and I spent months researching custom van builds across the country. By far, the best build was practically in our backyard in Florida, Mango Vans. There are so many reasons to choose Mango Vans. This was our first van build and despite our research, we still had a lot of questions. Mat and his team were there for us every step of the way. We had an initial meeting with Mat to discuss our wish-list, our travel needs and cost. Neither myself or my husband are mechanically inclined or master carpenters, so we opted for a full build. Mat and his team are masters at their trade. There is not just one person doing everything on one build. He has a whole team of professional electricians, carpenters and designers. The craftsmanship is apparent. Mango Vans uses high end but eco-friendly materials. He doesn’t put anything in or on your van that hasn’t been tested for functionality, safety and durability first. I came to Mat with several specific items I wanted in our build. He listened to our asks, but also provided several great ideas on that I hadn’t even thought to ask, like our little closet that has been a lifesaver for our clothes and shoes. I wanted extra windows in the van for more sunlight, a large Dometic Fridge/Freezer combination, an AC unit (a must in Florida), low profile fan, large solar panel, but also the ability to connect to 30/50 amp at a campsite and a roof rack with a side ladder and surf pole. One of the most important questions is cost. I compared Mango Vans with other custom build companies, as well as prefab models. You will not find a better value for your money with Mango Vans…period! We have had so many fun adventures in our van, and many more planned.”

I reached out to a lot of custom camper van companies nationwide and what attracted me to Mango Vans was I got to talk to the owner directly, not just filling out forms, it didn’t feel like an assembly line procedure, with some of the camper van companies out West, I got that vibe. I remember the time I came to meet the owner Mat and shook his hand and rode his skateboard around, and I thought it was really cool that I got to talk to the guy who would be building my van. Working with Mango Vans was like working on the build myself, even though I’m not doing any of the heavy lifting, I got to have a lot of input and agency in the entire process.

While initially, I planned to do the whole build myself, after assessing my lack of work space, proper tools, and relevant experience (other than YouTube) I grudgingly had to admit that I would get a much better result with far less headaches employing craftsmen. Everything was expertly installed and I was thankful not to have to cut holes in the van roof or learn any more about wiring the electric. Mat and the Mango Vans team are skilled and knowledgeable. They coordinated with all my ideas and patiently answered all my questions. I'm impressed with their desire to deliver custom solutions to satisfy any vanlifer's dream. I've taken my first trip with my newly outfitted van and can't wait to take many more.
