Need A Hard
Working Work Van?
Sportsmobile has specialized in converting vans since 1961 for all kinds of uses. We believe no one is more experienced than Sportsmobile.
We can finish out the van’s interior, install cabinets, work tables, partitions and a wide selection of options including electrical, propane and plumbing systems. Just let us know your needs. Our converted vans meet applicable RVIA (Recreational Vehicle Industry Association) codes and FMVSS (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards). This is important for the safety of your employees and liability considerations.
We have converted vans for a wide range of uses including construction field offices, refrigerated services, oil and gas exploration, surveillance and search and rescue.
Note — not all Sportsmobile locations convert work vans.

This work van was built for Sergei Kalinin of Siberia. It’s a Ford E350 4-wheel drive. The Sportsmobile is equipped with Mattracks wheels/tires, which make it almost tank-like, to withstand long commutes in the long harsh winters and wet weather of Siberia. Siberia has eight months of snow and winter weather and four months of wet weather with plenty of mud.
Sergei is a construction contractor who spends long winters working from this type of vehicle. The Mattracks wheels/tires can be easily converted from one to the other. This photo shows the tracks sitting beside the tires.
The custom interior includes swivel chairs, day and night shades, bed, marine toilet, shower, microwave, diesel galley with stove, and refrigerator. Air-conditioner, Espar furnace, water heater and lots of storage compartments.
The vehicle left Sportsmobile in late August 2010 and was trucked to New York, where it was crated and shipped to Finland. Kalinin received the vehicle after one month at sea. He then drove it to Russia.
