About Us

An Experienced Builder

Joel at NCV is an HVAC Engineer by trade, having worked in nearly every aspect of the industry for over 15 years. His hobbies include carpentry, dirt biking, hiking, and mountain biking. Building van conversions combines his experience with HVAC, carpentry, electrical/solar systems, plumbing, maximizing energy efficiency, and his general desire to fix or improve the project in front of him. After helping others build their vans on the side, it was an obvious career choice when he finally decided to ditch the 9-5 desk job and start North Country Vans.

When not on the road, Joel is happiest working on a van. He has learned from his early builds, living in a van full-time, and having explored many van conversions during his travels. Joel incorporates unique features to save energy and space in all of his builds, customizing each design to fit the van and the owner. NCV can work with any van and style, specializing in designs intended to maximize space and offer the maximum functionality for the van’s intended use – from having a dual purpose as a motovan to serving as a high-tech office for a remote professional.
