about us

The Drifter story is one that melds construction and travel, with the team bringing a deep passion for both.

Our Quality Guarantee

Our owner Paul’s construction story stretches back to 2002. Having worked as a general contractor for almost two decades, he brings a wealth of hands-on experience, and understands the importance of quality materials and high-level craftsmanship.


Paul was a relative later-comer to travel, strapping on a backpack and journeying to South America in his mid-thirties. But he more than made up for lost time, travelling up and down the continent

for more than a year.

On his return home, finding himself in a world where borders were far harder to cross, Paul spoke to a team of close contacts about an idea. Drifter was born.

Drifter Vans is a way for this group of Detroit natives to unite their passions of travel and engineering, while also paying tribute to their Motor City roots.

Our Quality Guarantee

Here in Detroit we like to work with our hands, and we take deep pride in what we do. The only thing better than seeing a customer’s face when they collect their van is knowing that they’ll be enjoying it for hundreds of thousands of miles to come.

Architectural plans

A unique collective of craftsmen and gearheads based out of Motor City, the Drifter team brings together experts that cover every aspect of campervan creation.
