Hi, we're Alina and Timo from Sprintour. Many years ago, vanlife fever caught us. After remodelling a Caddy ourselves, a Sprinter followed, which we used to travel around Europe for a year. The van conversion captivated us so much that we wanted to do more of it! So we founded a company and are now converting vans into motorhomes full-time. Our passion has become our profession. And you can be a part of it, too!

Hi, we're Brina, Igor and Gerda from Explore the Outdoors. In summer 2018, we converted our first van, a Mercedes Benz Vito, and took many fantastic trips with it. Our three-week trip through the Scottish Highlands was a particular favourite. In June 2020, we then switched to a bigger model for a number of reasons and got a Sprinter. Due to the standing height, it not only offers us a little more "luxury", but also, most importantly, enough space for our dog Gerda. We are almost done with the conversion and can't wait to finally travel again.

We are Selina, Frank and Fiete and have been passionately on the road, travelling the world in our van for many years. Our love for independent, easy travel with an extended bus began in Australia and New Zealand. It quickly became clear that we needed our own bus, which we can design according to our ideas and needs. After a good four years of conversion, adaptation and improvement work, we had created the perfect camper for us with our VW T4, called Rudi. Then our son Fiete came along and our needs changed! For almost a year now, we have been expanding our wonderfully large Mercedes Sprinter – christened Bruno – and creating our new dream home on four wheels.
