After spending time in a Vanagon traveling around California and Baja, Texino founder Nick Devane became fixated on what a better recreational vehicle might look like, and a business model that was more aligned with the low usage of typical owners.
Launched in Los Angeles in August 2018, Texino initially rebuilt and restored the icons of the small format camper world: Volkswagens, 70 Series Land Cruisers and Sprinters. We began the company building, renting and operating out of our location in Silverlake.
In 2019, we added the Metris Camper as our take on the spiritual successor to the Vanagon and began to phase out vintage rentals. We also opened our camp store and launched the Share Program to rent vehicles owned by our build clients on consignment.
We now operate two 40,000 SF production facilities in downtown Los Angeles and pride ourselves on fabricating nearly every aspect of our vehicle conversions in-house. We source the highest possible grade materials, components and methods in the market. Texino also has rentals, retail and showroom locations in: Silverlake, Venice, and is soon to open a San Francisco outpost.
Texino stays committed to helping more people get outside as much as possible through thoughtful design and innovative product offerings. We're getting there through a combination of innovative design, unique materials, and cutting-edge infrastructure. We work incredibly hard at what we do and hope to constantly improve.
The magic of building your next adventure happens in the Chinatown neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.
We take pride in building everything ourselves, which allows us to constantly improve our products and services.
We moved into our Chinatown facility in the Fall of 2020, and we've built out a streamlined production facility.
