We had honestly given up on finding a custom van builder to work with before we met Rick and Dennis. Both of us come from construction and custom building backgrounds and not only knew exactly what we wanted, but we knew what it should cost as well as what a reasonable profit for the builder should be. If we'd had the right place to build out our own - we might have. BUT we also valued very much the fact that if we paid to have our van built out by folks who made their living doing so, it would take a lot less time and eliminate the "learn as you go" mistakes that would inevitably come up and would be costly if we built our own. But interview after interview I found myself talking to people who were price gauging given the current trends and more often than not - condescending men who wrongly assumed both my level of understanding of what we wanted and what my priorities as a woman would be. So, like I said. We'd largely given up and had decided we'd instead invest a nice chunk of money into our overland teardrop and rig and forget about a van until things calmed down. Through a small series of fortunate events, we, in a last ditch effort stopped by Vandemic Campervans shop in Denver June 2021. My husband and I fell in love with Rick and Dennis's builds, their professionalism, their kindness, and yes, even their puppy (at the time) Frank. We put down our deposit for a March 2022 build on the spot! Through another series of fortunate events, we were able to get our van built out July 2021 and hit the road last October. We are full time van-lifers now and just celebrated our 1 year Vanniversary! We could not be happier with Jeff, our van. If we had to do it all over again - I would be right back at Vandemic Campervans shop to build my next one. It's everything we wanted and needed, nothing we didn't. Rick and Dennis's customer service and support since our purchase has been 10 out of 10. We are happy to call them both friends now because our business interaction was that good. If you look at the design and build of their vans and think, "yes, I think that's what I've been looking for", then LOOK NO FURTHER. And we'll look forward to welcoming you to the Vandemic "family".
