Habitats.

WLDR is proud to offer hand-crafted campers that you can actually afford. We use all new parts from industry-leading companies and strategic partnerships to build fully-loaded, hand-crafted, modern-minimalist campers.

Current Builds

Build philosophy: rugged on the outside with a soul-inspiring interior and a ton of features that are still easy to use

WLDR Habitats are all different, but you’ll notice many consistencies. Please see specific habitat listings for a full description and a list of assets.

Exterior upgrades are important to help you travel further down the road less traveled. WLDR Habitats get a full makeover for improved functionality which results in an awesome look, too.

Generally speaking, WLDR Habitats undergo some type of lift or leveling along with upgraded wheels and all-terrain tires. You’ll always find lightbars and/or auxiliary lights. Other body work may include updated bumpers, fender flairs, bully bars, running boards, tire racks, roof racks, ladders, new headlights/taillights, paint and much more.

Interior design matters. We put a lot of thought into each Habitat and draw upon many years of experience to make it both functional and beautiful.

Our aesthetic is best described as modern-minimalist. We try to use as much natural wood as possible like real birch butcherblock, tongue and groove planking, and fresh trim because it is better for you and makes the soul happy. Premium vinyl faux wood is reserved only for the flooring while plywood underlays are preferred to cheaper materials with higher levels of chemicals (ie, particle board, osb).

We tend to use paint instead of adhered facades for a healthier and more homey feel, choosing calming whites and grays with sporadic black accents. Brushed nickel hardware and aluminum compliments the color scheme and we match to sinks, faucets, and other utilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Great question. We build awesome new Adventure Habitats out of the best pre-owned vehicles on the market so we can offer them at affordable prices. Our goal is to provide top-of-the-line and fully functional builds with industry-leading components at ¼-½ the price of our competition.

Adventure Habitats typically sell anywhere from $40-60,000 depending on the build, but they can range from as low as $30,000 and as high as $80,000.

Whatever your budget, we would love to discuss your vision. Because we custom build each Adventure Habitat, we can usually find ways to make your dream a reality.

Everyone loves a good deal. So, we understand why you might want to negotiate on the price.

We mindfully price every build because our goal is to provide amazing campers that anyone can afford. That way, we help more people get back to nature and deepen their connections.

The truth is, we would do almost anything to help you get into an Adventure Habitat™ and we love learning about the incredible experiences people have. If there is any wiggle room in the price and it can help get you there, we are willing to make it happen.

While we can’t promise you a lower price, we can promise that we will do everything we can to help!

A camper is a big purchase! We get it.

Even our super affordable Adventure Habitats™ have a big price tag depending on your financial situations. And we are sensitive to that.

We do no offer financing at this time, but we are actively looking for the right partner to help get people the loan they need. For now, please look for third-party loan sources if you need a little boost.

Please also contact us about your specific situation. We want to help get you into an Adventure Habitat™ so you can continue your awesome journey!

All Adventure Habitats™ are NEW BUILDS on premium pre-owned vehicles. In other words, the vehicle canvas is pre-owned but everything we add to the vehicle to make it into an Adventure Habitat™ is new using industry leading products and services. We don’t skimp on anything, ever.

After many years we have learned that having a new camper (ie, new bed, new sink, new electrical and charging components…etc.) is most important for buyers. It’s the biggest drawback from buying a used Class B campervan or motorhome. The other problem is the incredibly high price tag.

Not only does our process allow us to drive down final costs for you, but we can help you avoid the dramatic depreciation that happens when you purchase a new camper. Most people who purchase this type of adventure vehicle intend to use it a lot and keep it for a long time. That means you will rack up the miles pretty quickly anyway and earn yourself a ding or two along the way. Built to last for hundreds of thousands of miles with routine maintenance, there is a reason to start with a brand new vehicle anyway.

While we often build Adventure Habitats™ from van canvases, there are other vehicles that make great campers. Short buses, trucks, and SUV’s each have unique attributes that may make it the perfect choice for you. Call us to explore what type of camper may be a good fit and let us know if you have a wild vision for your next Adventure Habitat™ – we will try to manifest it.

Sort of, but not really. We know this isn’t the answer that you want, but please understand why. The entire build process begins when we source the best preowned ‘Canvas’ vehicles on the market and no two vehicles are exactly the same. The vehicle itself determines what camper model styles we can choose from. Moreover, we create Adventure Habitats™ from vans, buses, trucks, and SUVs. That means lots of different custom build-outs.

The perfect Adventure Habitat™ may be available now or coming soon so check out our projects and give us a call to see if it would be a good match for your needs. You can also join the waitlist if you are looking for a specific build type and we will let you know as soon as the Canvas vehicle comes in. From there, you can either custom build your Adventure Habitat™ from the beginning or wait until the finished product is for sale.

Yes. Depending on the point in the build process, you can customize many things. We often list our current and future projects on our website and newsletters, so keep your eye out for the perfect canvas vehicle.

For example, you can basically help us design everything from the layout to cabinetry colors to the size of the power bank if you buy in as soon as we receive a new canvas. If you find your perfect Adventure Habitat™ while we are in the middle of the build, we can still work with you to make certain customizations that are available at that time. Even once we finish a build, there are still opportunities for aesthetic customizations to make it your own and certain functional changes as well.

There are three levels of warranties when it comes to Adventure Habitats™. First, we DO warranty the build itself. Anything that relates to the craftsmanship and materials used in the production process of your vehicle is warrantied by us and/or our partners who work on them. Also covered are the manufacturer warranties for all the individual components used to build your Adventure Habitats. This would cover things like an inverter failing for no fault of your own and must be dealt with the manufacturer directly (make sure to register everything in the packet we provide for you).

Lastly, some people may want to warranty the vehicle itself. By law, pre-owned vehicles are sold ‘as is’ and do not come with a warranty. We go to great lengths to try to prevent any issues, including testing and evaluation of vehicles, but we can’t control for something that happens organically as you roll down the open road. Nevertheless, please always reach out to us because we will always try to see if we can help in some way!

Alternatively, there are third-party companies who will provide warranties on the vehicle itself. But please do your research and make sure they are reputable and worth the coverage.

Summary:
<ol>
<li>WLDR stands by the build-out itself, including craftsmanship and materials used in the camper conversion – our warranty.</li>
<li>Manufacturer warranties cover the hardware and appliances themselves. Please review the included documents and send in warranty cards wherever applicable.</li>
<li>Used vehicles are sold ‘As Is’ by law with no explicit warranties. There are third-party providers, but please do your research to make sure they are highly rated.</li>

There are pros and cons to decide whether or not to register your vehicle as a recreational vehicle, one that is intended for <em>human habitation</em>. As far as we know, you can change the registration of a vehicle from automobile to recreational vehicle in every state.

Sometimes you can find lower insurance rates with an RV, but check that the coverages apply for your intended use. On the other hand, many counties have regulations that RV’s cannot be parked on city roads overnight so check with local laws before changing registration status.

Let us start by saying that every state and/or county has different laws and processes pertaining to registering recreational vehicles. Therefore, please check with your local DMV for their guidelines.

In California, registering your Adventure Habitat™ as a recreational vehicle is as easy as driving it down to your local DMV for an inspection so long that it has the following (must be permanent/built-in):
<ul>
<li>Bed/Sleeping System</li>
<li>Cooking/Kitchen System</li>
<li>Cleaning/Bathroom/Hygiene System</li>
<li>Cabinets/Storage systems</li>
</ul>
That stated, we have learned that many DMV Inspectors use a subjective metric for how they interpret DMV guidelines. We highly recommend that you contact your local DMV to find out exactly what they are looking for. We can typically help you to make any changes they may request to get it registered.

Awesome! We love when people want to build their own DIY campers. That said, we also know that there are many hurdles and challenges that you will confront along the way – some of them costly mistakes and still others very dangerous. For that reason, we have two avenues for people who want to build a DIY camper: (1) we can produce a partial build for you with some of the more complicated and/or technical elements leaving space for you to put your spin on the rest and (2) we provide consultation services for people who want to build their own.

Option 1 would be great for someone with some construction skills or the willingness to learn. It may also be a good option for someone who just wants to put their finishing touches on an otherwise finished camper. This option is considered a custom buildout that can be finished to varying degrees based on your needs.

Option 2 would be better for someone with more refined skills and technical abilities since you may be working with construction materials, electrical systems, adhesives and chemicals, and more that can all be potentially dangerous.
