We do it all, from the simplest oil change to the most complex engine swaps.

We work with all types of owners, from brand new owners to people that bought their vehicle off the lot in 1971. We treat every project, customer and interaction with respect, from the smallest brake job to a full restoration.

We offer complete interior and exterior services, including new upholstery, new lighting, upgraded camping equipment, and a whole slew of options for the exterior of your vehicle. It's important to us to know your goals and wishes for your vehicle, and our our comprehensive inspection service can help you understand what the future likely holds.

Our staff is hand-picked for their dedication and expertise on these vehicles. And we love them as much as you do... every member of our team owns and drives one - sometimes two or three.

A Few Myths About Peace Vans We Want To Dispel

- "You're always too busy".  Actually, it's usually no more than a week wait and Eurovans are even easier to schedule (often the same week)

- "You only work on giant, fancy, restorations". Nothing is further from the truth.  While we do a few high-end restorations a year, most our work is standard, local, maintenance style

- "You are expensive".  We have benchmarked our competition and we are not the most expensive but certainly not the cheapest.
