A conversion van is a customized version of a large passenger van. Upgrades made to a regular van chassis are referred to as conversion such as high top vans with additional interior head room, large flat screen TVs, gaming systems, power fold down rear sofas, overhead storage and lighting.

A custom van is in essence the same thing; however a fully customized van goes a few steps beyond what you know as a conversion van.
