Let’s Travel in a Luxury Conversion Van

August 11th, 2017 by

Have you ever dreamed of sightseeing throughout the country at your own leisurely pace? Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to be tied to air travel? Taking a long summer vacation or some weekend explorations in your own vehicle is possible with a luxury conversion van. At DePaula Chevy, we have a full inventory of conversion vans for sale.

Our custom passenger vans, built on a Chevrolet chassis, will give you and your family a sophisticated and affordable transportation option. This ulterior mode of transportation will open a whole new level of style, class and comfort for your long road trips across the country or into the Adirondack Mountains.

But is a luxury conversion van for you? Conversion vans come in passenger seating configurations of seven and nine. They differ from bulky, hard-to-drive RVs, due to their compact size and comfortable handling. They can be purchased either as a high- or low-top model. The high-top is made of fiberglass and fits where the original factory roof is cut away; it allows passengers to stand up inside the cabin. The low top model retains the factory roof, making those vehicles more aerodynamic but less spacious on the inside.

A luxury conversion van is the perfect setting for you and your family to travel. Its interior space will accommodate a large group, providing much more room than other full-sized vehicles. You’ll be amazed at all of the different features that can be added to your conversion van to make it as luxurious as possible. These include comfortable seating, plush carpeting, light-deterring window shades, and rear sofas that fold-down into a comfortable bed. If you choose to convert a high top van for yourself, your passengers will have the ability to stand up and walk around due to its extra headroom.

But it’s always those little extras that everyone remembers—those luxurious amenities that you don’t find in every vehicle or home. No wonder luxury conversion van owners fawn over their heated seats, lit drink holders, power sunroofs, power reclining front seats, USB charging ports, large flat-screen TV’s, Blu-ray and DVD technology, video game consoles and ceiling light panels. These vehicles are like a mansion-on-the-highway, decorated with all of the accoutrements of the wealthy.

No other part of your luxury conversion van is as important as your seating options. You’ll want to make sure that this choice includes comfort, support, and flexibility. It’s an important consideration since you’re going to be sitting in these seats throughout the entire drive. You can choose large, plush seats for extra comfort, style, and support. Many new or used conversion vans have high quality, leather seating. Many offer power lumbar seats and some of the newer models offer extreme reclining features. Heated seats are commonly found in conversion vans, sometimes even massage features. Swivel chairs are also available in many models. Don’t forget that most conversion vans come equipped with power folding sofa beds, perfect for napping children or adults.

Just like in your home, you’ll want to carefully choose your upholstery. Your choice will depend on how many people will be using your van and for what purposes. If you are bringing your family with young children, consider a durable, easy to clean, and comfy floor carpeting. If the van is going to be used by you and your spouse, you might opt for more expensive plush upholstery.

Since you are using this vehicle as a place to sleep and eat, you’ll want to give serious consideration to your blinds and shades. Take the time to choose wisely; these provide privacy, allow your passengers to take a nap, change clothes, or watch a movie on longer trips.

Although you’ll be using outdoor light for most of your travel, you’ll want to seriously consider lighting options for the interior of your luxury conversion van. You can install ceiling light panels that will match your interior in a wide variety of designs and colors of your choice. To give your luxury conversion van even more bling, you might install lighting that runs along the door panels and in the cup holders. These lighting features will also provide useful illumination if your passengers wish to read a book or newspaper while traveling.

Depending on who you are taking on your trip, you might need to add a headliner to your luxury conversion van. A headliner is a carbon fiber grab handle that helps your passenger go from a sitting position to a standing position. These headliners are available in a variety of colors, finishes, and sizes to best accessorize your luxury conversion van.

During your vacation, you’ll want to see and appreciate all of the sights that you encounter. Your luxury conversion van can be equipped with power roofs and vista sport roofs for the comfort of you and your passengers. Not familiar with these accessories? A power roof opens your vehicle to natural light, provides indirect light, and shades the interior; whereas, a vista sport roof is a long, thin window that sits at the top of your van. They allow light to enter and can also block direct sunlight.

Your luxury conversion van is known for its opulence so having the most high tech equipment is a no-brainer. You’ll want to equip it with state-of-the-art entertainment features that will delight you and your passengers and provide an unforgettable experience. That’s because your conversion van can be equipped with enough space for a 29-inch flat screen television. You and your family will enjoy watching the latest movies on a large screen, perhaps in your van’s swivel seats. When you’re on the road, you won’t have to do without DVD or Blu-ray technology either. And while you drive, you don’t have to be interrupted by the sound and video of the movie or music. Your passengers can wear headsets to better listen to the audio while you drive or listen to navigation directions. Your conversion van can also accommodate video game consoles, too. It doesn’t matter how long the trip might be, your young family will be always occupied during the drive in a luxury conversion van.

No matter where your family travels, you’ll want to enjoy the same high tech features that you depend on at home. Your luxury conversion van can be equipped with USB ports to let you plug in your laptop, iPad or cell phone for a quick charge. Some conversion van models even feature built-in Wi-Fi technology.

At our DePaula Chevy showroom, we have a number of conversion vans for sale. For example, the 2017 Chevrolet Express 2500 Explorer Van will provide your family with luxury, style, space, entertainment, and safety. Your passengers will enjoy all of its luxurious touches, including its leather interior, a Samsung flat screen TV, DVD Player, a rear bed sofa and seating available for seven. No matter what your family brings on vacation, this conversion van offers a large interior space for backpacks, athletic gear or packing up for your next trip to an amusement park. Parents will love how easy the Express handles and kids will be entertained no matter how long the trip may be.
