Greg's van is a white mid-1970's Dodge Tradesman with an elaborate custom paint job; an outer-space mural combined with a purple "Mr. Universe" logo and red, orange, and blue lines. The interior contains a powerful sound system as shown in "Laser Light Cannon", "Ocean Gem", and "The Return". It's customized with enough hardware to act as a mobile sound studio as revealed in "The Message."
Acting as the "tour bus" for Greg's one-man band in his youth, it is clear that the van has been around and a part of Greg's life for a long time. Despite owning a car wash complete with an office he could live in, he chooses to live out of his van -- a sign of the sentimental value he places in the vehicle. In "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 higher than that of his business. Despite this, the van has been severely damaged, or even almost entirely demolished, on several occasions and each time it visibly distresses Greg.
