    Default Explorer Van Company - Conversion Vans [Expired Topic]

    I ran into some guys selling these vans at the Dallas Auto Show and I was impressed. This was the perfect van to take a trip to grandma's house that's 6 hours away, to take to the lake for a 3 day weekend, or to just go out on a country drive.

    I know there are some folks on here with one of these, but once I actually got in one it was a whole nother story!

    Yeah Explorer makes some really decked out vans, and they have some really reasonable rebates on them now that the economy is so bad. The old Mark III vans they used to make were really nice too, to bad they went out of business though. Regency has some really sweet conversion vans too, that was how I found my truck actually was at an RV/Camper show in Cleveland. Regency also does conversions on trucks also which I thought was kind of funny, but the Kodiak that they had their changed my mind and I bought one of their Silverado's!

    Man, that van is done up nicer than my house! I have a Caravan (I know, I know) kind of like it. It's from the early '90's done up by a company called Elk. My grandparents bought it new and gave it to me a few years ago. The pain is trying to find replacements for the interior pieces that either broke or were destroyed by the kids and dog.
