Built on Experience
Joe and Dana, the owners of MULE Expedition Outfitters, built a Vanagon Syncro Westfalia in their garage over a two year period of weekends and evenings in 2010-2012. The build garnered some attention in the #vanlife world at the time for some of the innovative design ideas that went into the build and out of that, “DASMULE” was created, both the van and the company.
In sharing our travel experiences however, we quickly realized friends, family and customers were hungry for information on "how to build an overland rig," stories of our experiences, and advice on how to build their own vehicles for similar adventures. Out of a desire to share that knowledge, DASMULE evolved into a new company called MULE Expedition Outfitters that could expand its offerings beyond the Vanagon world.

Always on the move
As we continued to grow, our focus was to hire people from the overland and offroad worlds who had a similar passion for adventure and vehicles and also both personal and professional experience. We were adamant that our team be comprised of people who cared about our customers and would assist them with their builds as a friend more than a salesperson.
