Apogee: the highest point or culmination
Fab: short for fabrication
or fabulousyour call


Whether it's a mitered corner or a smooth brushed finish, Apogee Fab focuses on the details.  We put a lot of effort into fit and finish, comfort, lighting, and the parts of your van that you see and interact with every time you step inside.  Our high standards produce unique builds that are worth investing in.

Sometimes you know exactly what you want, and other times you're waiting for that perfect idea to emerge.  That's why we're here.  We work with each client individually, collaborating to make your vision a reality. 


One-of-a-kind, and exactly how you want it.


A beautiful camper is only so good unless it also performs like a champ.  Every part of an Apogee Fab camper is solid, practical, and built to last.  We strive to integrate sustainabile, durable materials wherever possible, for maximum functionality and product life.



Built by hand, just for the beauty of it.  

The little refinements matter, and the way features interact is crucial.  We labor over the details.  Even the unseen parts of your build need to be right for your camper to function beautifully, and stand the test of time. 


I'm Derek Baylor, owner of Apogee Fab.


In a previous life, I spent decades working in the arts, as a scenic carpenter, welder, and theater Technical Director. I made a career out of applying available resources for maximum effect, and I carry this ethos into the building of custom camper vans. Now what was once my high-end fabrication side-hustle is the core of our business:  creating completely unique, beautiful, and practical camper vans. One at a time. Just for you.
