Blue Ridge Adventure Vehicles is based in Asheville, NC and has been in business since 2007. Our mission is to build custom adventure vehicles to enhance your outdoor lifestyle, using 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.
The BRAV team is led by Thomas Coffee. An avid outdoor adventurist, Thomas has lived most of his life in Asheville where he enjoys mountain biking, camping, paddle boarding and snowboarding. His passion lies in exploring the natural world and enjoying everything our area has to offer, all while doing it comfortably and in style.
Thomas met Robert Morehead, the original founder of MDL Morehead Design Labs (now BRAV) while mountain biking, and was involved in the company from its inception. With his background in construction, technical automotive know-how, and extensive experience with the outdoors, Thomas brought a valuable skill-set to the company, one which helped establish and define its direction from the very beginning.
When Mr. Morehead decided it was his time to hand over the business, Thomas leapt at the opportunity, taking charge of the company and leading the experienced BRAV team onto new adventures.
