Not sure if you noticed, but camper vans are legit having a moment RN. And we, for one, are not surprised in the least bit. Whether you want to go backcountry camping for the weekend, go for a month (or 6)-long exploration excursion of the great North wilderness, or live permanently on wheels (thanks to the new WFH norm), campers are the ultimate solution for an off-grid lifestyle.
But just because you’re living off-grid doesn’t mean you have to compromise on comfort and/or other luxuries of indoor living. And Yama Vans is proving that a highly capable, and stylish basecamp in the wild outdoors is not just possible but straight-up desirable.
First things first, a little background on Yama Vans. In the simplest of explanations, Yama Vans is a Calgary-based, premium adventure van upfitter (say that five times fast). On a deeper level, the brand is here to make every free-spirit’s dream of an adventurous, on-road life a reality, quite an exquisite one to that. It makes sense given that Alex and Patrick, the founders, originally established the brand because of their love of outdoor adventure, and its unrestricted spontaneity!
With a belief that your on-wheel abode should feel like home, Yama Vans custom designs van interiors to suit your lifestyle off the grid. Yama’s flexible custom-built homes-on-wheels make for a plush and comfortable basecamp for all outdoor adventures, be it on the road, up the mountain, or by a secluded beach. But that’s not all they do.
Yama Vans has found the perfect blend of functionality, durability, and beauty and that’s what sets them apart. Their advanced systems provide a fully integrated and simple user experience that keeps you in control and allows you to experience comfort and convenience in any condition. They are literally providing you with the quality you expect in a yacht (yeah you read that right) but built for our Rocky Mountain roads. Yama Vans combines optimized floor plans and components with a modern design aesthetic. You’re an avid kayak lover and need custom storage? Check. Interior bike storage for 2 wheelers? Absolutely. Just ask, and Yama Vans will work with you to optimize the space and create the best solution for each unique use case and design style.
Unsurprisingly (because Alex and Patrick are nature-lovers), sustainability is one of the brand’s primary ethoses. And how are they caring for the planet? By planting 200 trees (nope, not an exaggeration) for each van they build to offset its carbon emissions for its first 20,000 km’s traveled.
With its ‘indoor comforts meet-outdoor thrill’ approach Yama Vans is taking off-grid living to a whole new level, one that’s a lot more comfortable, efficient, and sustainable. In the process, they made the lifestyle absolutely alluring, even to us outdoor adventure novices. We bet it’s done one better for you road aficionados.
