We’ve had our eye on all the awesome Vanlife expos around the country for a while now, and we finally jumped on board for our first series this year! The Adventure Van Expo series was a perfect way to get our expo feet wet, set up our dream booth, and mix and mingle with all the amazing Vanlifers that came to the shows.
We were blown away by the community that showed up, the stories they shared, and the laughs we experienced! At the same time, attendees were consistently blown away by the design of our gorgeous, welcoming, homely Be-Vans!
The Show goes on!
If you’ve never been to an Adventure Van Expo, what are you waiting for? They’re beautiful weekend-long celebrations of all things Vanlife, and we were honored to be a part of it this year. The organizers celebrated five years of showing the best of the best in the Adventure Van industry with both old and new faces at their debut location at Homewood Ski Resort in stunning North Lake Tahoe in September.
With yummy food trucks, jammy live music, refreshing local brews, workshops and talks, the shows are something the whole family can enjoy.
If our grand event debut in Lake Tahoe taught us anything, it’s that you all appreciated a hot cup of espresso! We had plenty of caffeinated goodness and yummy treats for visitors to enjoy throughout the event, in addition to exciting prizes, cool Bemyvan swag, and the opportunity to meet the team and explore our iconic builds in person.
Because of a nearby fire days before, the event was at risk of being canceled. We were lucky the weather gods came through and allowed the show to go on – along with some evening rains to help with the fires!
Being in Lake Tahoe reminded us why we do this in the first place – the fresh mountain air and stunning scenery sparked the love of the outdoors in the whole team and made us hungry to continue with more expos!
Standing out from the crowd
In a world full of Sprinters, we were one of the few builders that convert Dodge Promasters, and attendees appreciated that! You can say we like to stand out from the crowd. Though we build on Sprinters too, our bread and butter are our ProMaster builds, the Be-Home, the Be-Adventure, and soon-to-be the Roamer.
We love building on ProMasters because they’re just a little wider – allowing for even more comfort and space in your home on wheels.
Our team of experts crafts the most beautiful, functional vans on the market. We’re proud of what we do. We love what we do, and we know you’ll feel that as soon as you take a seat in your future living room!
Cozy community vibes
The diversity of Vanlifers is growing daily. We loved meeting people from all walks of life and hearing their stories of how they downsized to live a life of freedom! From retirees, to travel nurses, to photographers and artists – the Vanlife community is bursting with inspiration and good vibes. It’s a pleasure to be a part of it.
Our booth consistently brought the party, we wanted to create an experience you’d have similar to one parked in your Be-Van. A cool community vibe, lots of chairs to lounge on and even a hammock to swing the day away when your feet get tired from walking too much.
Coffee, coffee, coffee
Before we departed Las Vegas on our maiden expo voyage, we packed up our espresso machine, not knowing it’d be the talk of the town when we got there! You could smell our espresso from a mile away, and we kept the crowd (and ourselves) caffeinated throughout the expo. It was so nice to share a hot cup of joe while trading travel tales. We’ll be doing this every event in the future from now on!
The biggest (and last show of the series) was the second week of October, and it was an Autumnal experience to remember!
The Bemyvan team came out from Las Vegas to join the fun, and our booth visitors consistently shared how amazed they were with our product, design, and vision. The cozy town of Big Bear, California really brought the perfect backdrop – changing leaves, pine trees, cool breezes. Take us back!
See you in 2023!
Can you believe 2023 is just around the corner? Neither can we! We’re excited to travel even farther to showcase our iconic B-Vans next year, and we’ll keep you updated when the next expos take place. You can count on us to bring the fun, the espresso, and some extra cozy vans to chill in, of course!
Until then, our Las Vegas warehouse is open, and B-Van viewings can be scheduled by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (725) 215-2114.
We can’t wait to show you what’s in store next year!
