Entrepreneurs: David Sodemann and Brett Ellenson
The company called Boho Camper Vans is based in Arizona and founded by David Sodemann and Brett Ellenson. They design downright gorgeous camper vans at a very affordable $35,000.
They start with a used one-ton commercial van in good condition. The metal ceiling and walls are covered with wood, knotty pine or cedar; the floor with wood-look vinyl.
This layout is meant to last, and its low profile means you’ll be able to get where many vans can’t.
Functional, stealthy and beautiful – boho standard builds are where it all started. These builds have stood the test of time as we’ve used the boho standard layout on over 150 rental trips within boho’s own fleet.
