Welcome to Blue Ridge Adventure Vehicles
Blue Ridge Adventure Vehicles (BRAV)! is located in Fairview, North Carolina in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains about 10 minutes south of Asheville. Since 2007 Our mission has been to provide adventure vehicles to enhance your outdoor lifestyle, using locally sourced, sustainable, and eco-friendly materials whenever possible. We’ll provide you with the highest quality of care, attention, and craftsmanship, all while honoring your budget and fulfilling your dreams of vanlife.
Our current lead time: 10 months. We are taking deposits for 2023 full builds, and we try to fit smaller jobs into our shop sooner.
At this time we are transitioning away from custom builds and will soon have our own designs that have proved to be adventure worthy, and using only the latest products from our trusted vendors. We will provide these builds to empty cargo ProMaster and Sprinter vans only. This is to better streamline our process and increase our productivity. We hope to expand our parts department to better accommodate DIY builders.
We will continue to provide services to cargo van owners who want windows, flares, seat swivels, and most exterior accessories, but we will no longer be installing, but can still order for the diy'er, solar electrical systems, seats, and heaters. These changes will provide us with more shop space and speed production times for full conversions.
This is a major shift for BRAV, and we know it will come with different challenges, but with nearly 15 years in the industry we’ve seen what works and what doesn’t. We feel this is the best direction in providing superior quality with quicker turnaround in a demanding market.
If there are parts or accessories, from our vendors, you are interested in for your Adventure Vehicle please let us know and we can assist with the order, and possibly, the install of those parts.
Our current lead time, on approved conversions, is 6 months. We can usually fit in smaller jobs (windows, vent fans, awnings) in a timely manner.
*We are experiencing some delays from manufacturers/vendors, due to covid 19, on parts and accessories for van builds.
We offer consultation for the potential vanlifer. We'll answer any questions, look at your plans or help you with your design. Consultation can save the DIY'er a lot of frustration when it comes to choosing the right parts and understanding the proper installation. We can show you our build process, and explain our build techniques. Consultation is charged at $150 for the first hour and $75 each additional hour. You can also check out local events where we are always happy to talk about van conversions.
