The Profit - SD Campervans Update

Tonight on The Profit, Marcus Lemonis is in Los Angeles, California to make a deal with SD Campervans.  SD Campervans is a company that converts vans into campers and was started by Breanne Acio.  SD Campervans is ready to bring more people into the "Van Life" lifestyle, but they will need to improve their process before things go south.  Marcus also needs to convince the owners to be more open minded so they are accepting of all types of people and brands.

Let's take a look at some information related to SD Campervans as well as what kind of deal was made on the show.

News and Links Related To The Company:

  • Here is the SD Campervans website and Facebook page.
  • A post on their Facebook page states, "Do you know that SD Campervans is a family and women-run company? As the story goes, Lacey and Bre started SDCV by purchasing a van and converting it in their father-in-law’s, garage, and then discovered more people wanted their own vans converted and their market shifted. In their first year of business (2018) alone, their team was able to deliver 32 camper van build outs through their shop doors. Isn't that amazing?"
  • According to their website, SD Campervans only converts certain brands of vans into campers and a full conversion starts at $19,500.
  • Here are the SD Campervans Yelp reviews which are all 5 stars (only 9 when the episode aired).
  • Here is the Van Life App which was founded by Breanne Acio from the show.  The app connects travelers with one another while on the road, solving the problem of loneliness within that group of travelers.
  • Here is a Facebook page for the Van Life App.

The Deal From The Episode Plus Post-Show Updates (this will be updated continually):

  • SD Campervans ceased operations before Marcus brought them to the deal table to make a deal.
  • Marcus sponsored a SD Campervans event by providing $5,000 in the name of Good Sam.  He wasn't impressed with what his money was used for and decided a partnership with SD Campervans would not work out at the moment. 
  • Camping World does not have vans similar to SD Campervans available for sale on its website yet.
