Production of a camper starts with payment of a non-refundable 10% deposit via Visa, MasterCard, American Express or a personal check. This payment secures a conversion reservation in our schedule, and allows us to begin production of your parts. Orders can be placed online through our website, or call and we can walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
If there is any custom work needed, this can be done after we have a standard order in the system, and will be quoted separately.
We are committed to building high-quality vehicles that exceed expectations. The turn-around for an Ursa Minor Vehicles ECamper™ is approximately 4 to 6 weeks from order date, depending on season and our order backlog.
Our schedule starts with vehicle drop off on Monday morning. Our team installs your camper pop top and any standard options in five days at our, facility and your finished ECamper™ will be ready on Friday afternoon.
The Element needs to visit one of our shops for conversion, we do not ship ECamper kits for home or dealer installation. There are some of the typical ways the visit may work out:
- Drive to our facility, spend a week on vacation, drive an Ecamper home
- Drive to our facility, fly home, fly back on Friday, drive an Ecamper home
- Ship an Element to our facility, fly in, drive an Ecamper home
- Drive to our facility, fly home, ship an Ecamper home
- Ship an Element to our facility, ship an Ecamper home
We've had Elements come from as far away as Alaska, Maine, Florida and New York!

If you reside outside of Southern California or Oregon and are considering shipping, specific rates vary depending on distance, date, and method of shipment. Choices range from hiring a driver to deciding between open or enclosed trailers, or ship it one way and then drive it home. Please call us and we'll be happy to help you evaluate the options.
The most common choice for those not near our facilities is to plan a vacation around the installation. You can enjoy the beaches and scenery of Southern California or the mountains of Oregon afterwards in your new ECamper.™
