Our design philosophy is pretty straightforward. We design and test extensively, so when you take our gear offroad, you can depend on it.

"At Owl, we are obsessive about quality. We will never be the cheapest, but we will stop at nothing to be the best."
Ashley Smith, Fabrication Manager
"As the head of quality control, every Owl product that leaves this building carries my name as a guarantee. That's something I don't take lightly.
The team we have built at Owl Vans is amazing. Everything from the quality of the welders to the customer service staff to everyone we bring on. The most important thing is that they really care. They work harder than I can pay them, and we joke that they bleed blue.

About Owl Vans
Like so many American success stories, Owl was born with one person in their garage, determined to build something better. Founder John Willenborg purchased his first van in 2010 and started designing and engineering his own gear for over eight years. People loved the gear so much that they continually asked if he would make more. In 2018, after selling his previous business, John started manufacturing Owl's first products. In 3 short years, Owl has grown to be the industry leader and pioneer in Adventure Van gear and one of the biggest brands in the space. Today Owl is now a lot more than one man and garage, but we ensure that that same quality and passion that went into the first units persists today. Owl continues to focus on the future with team members spread out across the US with Off-Road installation centers and our Head Quarters in Marin, California.
