Our Team Values

Every day is different at Yama Vans, which is just the way we like it. Many of our team members landed at Yama after doing some big-picture re-evaluating of their own. We attract people who just so happen to love living life outside the box, and outside in general—skiing, climbing, hiking, biking, fishing, and just getting lost. Basically, our team is passionate about making your dream van a reality at least in part because your goals likely overlap with some of their own.

  • 01

    Be proud, stay humble

    From the mundane to the monumental, the Yama team approaches every aspect of their job with the utmost dedication and attention to detail. Everyone stands behind the work they put in and what we’re able to put out when we pull together.

  • 02

    See the beauty in simplicity

    More isn’t more, especially when it comes to material things. Doing more with less minimizes waste and keeps our focus on what matters, leaving room for intentional decision-making.

  • 03

    Pursue perfection

    Taken from the Japanese concepts of Shokunin and Kaizen, the Yama team pursues perfection (while realizing the impossibility of it) through continuous improvement (something that’s always possible).

  • 04

    Rise to meet challenges

    Our team loves overcoming obstacles as much as they love building vans that do the same. We recognize hard things are worth doing and know that positivity yields possibility. 

  • 05

    Enjoy the ride

    Don’t take life too seriously, enjoy it. Find joy in every journey and a way to turn left turns into the right adventure.
