This Top-Of-The-Line Adventure Van Just Won A 2021 Red Dot Design Award

From DIY projects to conversions to off-the-lot builds (and everything in-between), there are a lot of ways to get your hands on a solid adventure van. But if you’re the type that doesn’t know the meaning of the word compromise, you might be interested in the upscale, premium options offered by the intrepid Germans at Alphavan.

The proud recipients of both a 2021 Red Dot Design Award and a 2021 iF Design Award, Alphavans is trying to bridge the gap between comfort and exploration — and managing to do so in spectacular fashion. Each build starts with an already-impressive Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van before going through a complete overhaul to turn it into the ultimate premium adventure van — including the addition of custom diamond-quilted seating, gorgeous cabinetry from nose to tail, a kitchenette with a Dometic fridge, integrated electronics (and dedicated space for a smart TV), a full wet bathroom, a generous bedroom area, modular storage at the tail end (which can be turned into extra sleeping space, too), and so much more. Better still, it manages all of that while keeping the interior weight 50% lighter than the competition. However, with great luxury comes a potentially intimidating price tag: Alphavans offerings start at $183,000.

Purchase: $183,000+
