The 4 Biggest Misconceptions About Conversion Vans

October 23rd, 2013 by

The conversion van, it’s more than what you think.

As conversion vans continue to grow in popularity, there are still those who have some pretty stereotypical misconceptions regarding them.

Let’s face it, when most people hear the word van one of the first things they think of is them being designed solely for families with a slew of children they need to haul around.

The times have changed however. These days, conversion vans are not only being crafted with even more innovative and top-of-the-line features, but also are beginning to break such stereotypes.

Here are 4 common misconceptions about conversion vans you probably didn’t realize.

Sure, they come with TVs but they aren’t very big – FALSE.

The times are a changing folks. Sure, while most of us are fully aware a conversion is capable of housing a TV, many aren’t of aware of just how much the TVs which come in them have changed throughout the years. For example. the all new Southern Comfort conversion vans are capable of housing up to a 31″ LED TV in them now. Talk about luxury. Now, when you’re out on the road you can watch your favorite sporting event or movie in high definition. Not to mention, combined with a great stereo system in your van, you can now enjoy such programming with full surround sound. Southern Comfort isn’t the only brand to offer such a larger TV in their vans either, now other companies like Explorer are also upping their TV sizes as well.

SUVs get better gas mileage – FALSE.

Not true! These days your average conversion van actually gets much better gas mileage than most Sports Utility Vehicles. Despite their size, conversion vans offer surprisingly good gas mileage believe it or not.

Sure, they come with great packages but customization options are limited. – FALSE.

Sure, most conversion vans arrive to dealers with a preset package but it doesn’t mean you can’t customize them. Basically, the sky is the limit when it comes to the options you would like to add to your conversion van. If you can dream it, the odds are it can be done. We’ve seen conversions set up with everything from tailgating features to limousine features to golf outing features. Ultimately, what you want (and what you can get) in your van rest solely on imagination.

Only Soccer Moms and Senior Citizens drive conversion vans – FALSE.

This is perhaps by far the worse misconception out there regarding conversion vans.  Throughout the past few years, we’ve seen a growing demographic from all generations purchasing conversion vans. From newly weds to single individuals and more, the opportunity to fully customize a conversion van has become an attractive feature for a variety of vehicle owners and the trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
