From mountain biking in Pisgah to rock climbing in the Sierras, co-founders Joey and Peter became close friends over a shared love for outdoor adventures. Most of these adventures involved driving and overnighting in Peter's self-built Ford Transit conversion van. Over time, the desire to build out the ultimate adventure vehicles inspired them to create Sender Vans.
