I live in there!

—Greg Universe

Greg's Van is Greg's trademark vehicle from his touring days as a one-man band. It made its debut in "Laser Light Cannon" when Steven was banging on its walls and roof to wake Greg up.

Appearance Edit

Greg's van appears to be a white mid-1970's Dodge Tradesman with an elaborate custom paint job; an outer-space mural with asteroids, shooting stars, and planets combined with a purple and white "Mr. Universe" logo and red, orange, and blue stripes.

The interior contains a powerful sound system as shown in "Laser Light Cannon", "Ocean Gem", and "The Return". It is customized with enough hardware to act as a mobile sound studio as revealed in "The Message".

History Edit

The Message 040

Acting as the "tour bus" for Greg's one-man band in his youth, it is clear that the van has been around for a long time and is a part of Greg's life. He chooses to live in the van. Steven used to live with Greg (presumably in the van) until Greg and the Gems built the house extension on the temple, as shown in the extended version of "We Are the Crystal Gems".

In the episode "Steven and the Stevens", as his car wash catches on fire, he doesn't attempt to fight the fire, but rather rushes away screaming, "Gotta save the van!" showing that he values its safety in much higher regard than that of his own and his business.

Despite this, the van has been severely damaged or even almost entirely destroyed on several occasions. It is usually fixed by Pearl. The only time he leaves the van is when he lives with Steven for a time in the Beach House and then it was more to live with Steven again than having a real house.

Even after receiving his check in "Drop Beat Dad", he still chooses to live in the van, even though he now has more than enough money to buy a house. This shows that Greg views the van as home no matter how his circumstances change.

In "The Future", Greg moves into the Beach House permanently; it is unknown how he uses the van past this point.
