    THE SUPERHERO OF CAMPER VANS!

    Owning a AFV Builds multipurpose vehicle is a smart alternative to buying three separate vehicles for family, work, and play. AFV Builds is the superhero of camper vans, hauling kids to and from soccer practice by day and road-tripping by night. It’s a cargo van for work during the week and living space for play on weekends; it’s an adventure van that doubles as a daily driver.

    Off the Grid Capabilities

     AFV Builds innovations let you go totally off-grid. Our massive, 10kwh battery gives you days of battery power and can run A/Cs and heaters for multiple days. Over 400 watts of solar power and Alternator power extend battery runtimes. Options like All Wheel Drive, built-in dual compressors, off-road tires and off-road lights let you get further from civilization and closer to nature.

    Our Story

    A Journey Born from Passion

    My adventure began in 2016 as a contract videographer for the Utah Office of Tourism. Tasked with showcasing Utah’s lesser-known attractions, I embarked on a journey that opened my eyes not only to the beauty hidden in every corner of Utah but also to the glaring need for a service that catered to families like mine. My wife, battling Rheumatoid Arthritis and managing Type 1 Diabetes, yearned to join me, despite the challenges posed by her health and our newborn baby. Inspired by her spirit and our shared love for adventure, we ventured into the unknown, leading to the birth of Adventure Family Van Builds—a company founded on the pillars of promoting adventure and supporting family.

    Our mission, “Promote Adventure, Support Family,” drove us to design vans that cater to the unique needs of families seeking off-grid adventures without sacrificing comfort. Each van is meticulously crafted, considering real, practical family needs, ensuring freedom and comfort even in the most remote locations.

    Simultaneously, recognizing the complex planning that goes into family adventures, I developed proprietary software—an all-encompassing trip planner and area guide. This tool simplifies the adventure planning process, offering families everything they need to know about an area’s attractions in one place. From self-drive itineraries to detailed guides on local sights, our software fosters a community of families eager to embrace the adventure lifestyle.

    Adventure Family Van Builds is more than a van building company; it represents a movement to inspire families to explore, bond, and grow together through adventure. With your support, we can expand our reach, enhance our offerings, and continue to revolutionize how families experience the world together. Join us on this journey to explore the unexplored, guided by our vans and united by our software, in the pursuit of unforgettable family adventures.

    Our Dual Mission: Promote Adventure, Support Family

    Adventure Family Van Builds combines custom off-grid vans with our platform, creating a unique adventure guide. This allows families to easily plan trips and join a community passionate about exploration. Our approach is simple: build vans that can cater to family needs and provide a seamless way to discover new adventures.
