Things We Love About Our Chevy Conversion Van

When I was looking for the perfect family vehicle, I had a Goldilocks-type sense of what I wanted. An RV was too big and clunky. An SUV was too small and trendy. A Chevy conversion van was just right. As it turned out, choosing a conversion van was the perfect choice. Nothing suits our family quite like our Chevy van. Here are just a few things that we love about our Chevy conversion van.


Many consumers in the market for a large or recreational vehicle do not realize that buying a conversion van can give more bang for the buck. Many conversion van models do not cost more than a large SUV and a whole lot less than a traditional RV. Financially speaking, opting for a conversion van was the perfect medium between the other two options — and, in our case; we paid less than either for the van. Imagine that. A custom-built, family-sized vehicle, which has many amenities with the price of an SUV that does not guzzle gas? I consider this pure perfection.


The spatial capacity of a conversion van is surprisingly large. It is not always apparent from the outside, but a conversion van’s interior is quite roomy and very comfortable. My family of four (including two children that consider constant bickering a vital daily function) never felt cramped or crowded on extensive road trips. When we first considered a conversion van, I was very nervous about the space issue. One purchase and a long trip later was all I needed to banish that notion.


Here is the ironic inverse of the abundant space bonus. Somehow, the roomy conversion van still manages to feel intimate. Unlike the larger cabs of an RV, where fellow travelers can vanish from plain sight, conversion vans keep travel companions within eyeshot. When supervising children during an outing, this eyes-on, hands-off ability becomes very helpful. You can keep a watchful eye out without suffocating anyone’s space or travel experience.


This is the best part about our conversion van because we chose our own features. It did not take us long to mutually agree that a flat-screen television was a necessary component for the van, but we also installed a couple of game systems. After adding a refrigerator, satellite radio and sound system, hitting the road became more about the trip than the actual destination.

Football and Roadtrek this Fall

By · August 12, 2011 · Filed in Uncategorized · No Comments »


I have two bold predictions.

First, there will be a National Football League season, and it will start on time. While nothing now would indicate that to be the case, all the name calling and bluster going on is just meaningless drivel.

See, NFL players get paid during the 17 weeks of the season, so it’s easy to sit at home now, because they aren’t getting paid anyway, lockout or no lockout. When push comes to shove in mid to late August, and the prospect of the players missing game checks becomes more real, negotiations will pick up. When your paycheck is 6 figures every week, you start missing that quickly. I promise you, the players’ stance will change in a hurry when we get to that point. There is just too much money at stake. And once you lose it, you can never get it back.

Here is the second prediction—and this is really out on the limb. The Cleveland Browns (yes, those Cleveland Browns) will make the playoffs. How sure am I? I’m buying a Roadtrek to follow the team around the country.

Yep, from the opener against the Bengals to the finale against the Steelers on New Year’s Day, I’ll be there, in blistering heat and freezing wind, rooting my favorite team to the postseason for just the second time since 1999. And I will travel in style in the best selling Class B camper van in North America, the Roadtrek.

This class B motorhome is the perfect vehicle for such an endeavor. It handles easily even in heavy traffic, and parking is easy because of its smaller size. A Roadtrek gets better fuel efficiency than a full sized SUV, and every time I head out for a game, I can take all the comforts of home with me.

I will never be away from home without my own kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and entertainment area. No more hotels, restaurants, or long lines for the restroom. It can be a great tailgate vehicle, and when I am home, it’s perfect for running around town to the store or the kids games. It’s simply hard to find fault with a Roadtrek.

Maybe the best part is I won’t have to conduct an endless search to find the perfect vehicle. Dave Arbogast in Troy, Ohio has one of the largest inventories anywhere, and they are all available on line. Click here to view inventory. After finding the right vehicle for me, it’s just a matter of calling one of the van experts at 1-888-436-3216. This is one prediction I am sure of—you will find the right van at the right price at Dave Arbogast!

Re-Connect in a Van Conversion

By · March 8, 2011 · Filed in Uncategorized · No Comments »

Ever notice how no one talks to anyone anymore?

Statistics from the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (try getting that on a business card!) show that close to 200,000 text messages were sent every SECOND in 2010, and that more than 107 trillion e-mails were sent.

Phones aren’t used to talk to another person anymore, just to send along messages.

I can’t even complain too much. For someone who never used to text or e-mail, it’s my preferred communication method. I really have to want to talk to someone before I pick up the phone and dial that number. That said, it’s probably a good idea to re-connect with the people that are important to us. Maybe a road trip…in a van conversion from Dave Arbogast in Troy, Ohio.

The people who you include on your trip will have to talk to you, and there will be plenty to talk about once they see your new van conversion. You trick it out with the features you want. You don’t pay for things you don’t want, or have to go without the things you do. It’s truly your vehicle because it’s designed by you, and built for you.

Where to get your van conversion is the easiest part of the decision making process. Dave Arbogast in Troy, Ohio is the largest seller of new and used conversion vans in the United States, and every van in our inventory is online. That makes the selection process simple. Then call one of our van experts at 1-888-436-3216 and you will be on your way to re-connecting with your loved ones in no time at all!
