PREPARED, ON OR OFF THE GRID
Life on the road (and off it) in the most epic of proportions is what we are all about! We live and breathe adventuremobiling so much that we decided to design our own trucks the way we envisioned they should be. If you dig, convoy up. It's going to be an epic ride!
Built by a small team
of adventure-obsessed nuts looking to provide the best boutique experience for those seeking off-the-grid vehicle based travel and living.
for optimal comfort, function, efficiency, security and performance.
Know what you are getting
ADVMobil has a glass door policy, built on the principles of transparency, quality, and service. That is why we build our trucks with best-in-biz products and services. No shortcuts in sight.
Our customers have different ideas of what purpose their truck will serve. Some may use it exclusively for back-country recreation, while others will use it is as a modern planning tool when natural disasters hit their communities. Still some might fully embrace the vagabond lifestyle and call their ADV Mobil home. How would you use yours?

The PROlander model is a no-holds-barred, throw-everything-at-this-rig kind of truck—capable of the most epic of expeditions and designed for the full-time or near full-time adventurer.
Though all ADV Mobils can be modified to fit your needs, the PRO defines customization. From maximized storage to the highest end, most durable finishes, each PROlander will truly be one of a kind. When it comes to storage, if it can fit on a truck, we will design and manufacture a way to carry it. At ADV Mobil, we are outdoor enthusiasts just like you, and see it as a personal challenge to equip the truck of your dreams. Your truck needs to perform at the highest level of comfort and functionality, because after all, the PROlander is your home on wheels.

Owner and Founder
Known by many as ADV Tinker, Mike has been a regular in the overland world for years. With the support of his awesome family, he decided it was time to turn passion into career by upfitting a line of trucks exactly the way he envisions they should be—functional, impactful, and using the best products and parts available. His passion for customer service and the "do unto others" philosophy is what sets ADV apart from the competition, and builds the foundation for everything the company is and will become. Your ADV Mobil team is a group of talented off-road industry up-and-comers who are truly excited about life. This is our team! We can't wait to serve you!
Having spent his life exploring and pursuing mechanical mastery, from Jetskis and motorcycles to robotics design and fabrication, Brian is extremely familiar with diverse systems. He has years of experience repairing and modifying vehicles as well as maintaining and operating snowmobile grooming equipment.
Brian enjoys snowboarding in terrain parks, dirt biking, wake surfing, and off-roading in places like Windrock TN, Moab UT, and the UP of MI here in ADV Mobil's home state. Brian’s keen mechanical sense and fine attention to detail make him a great set of hands at ADV Mobil.
Taylor worked as a Diesel Mechanic for his family's business, K&S of Weston, WI for nearly a decade before joining the ADV Mobil team. He spends his free time building teardrop trailers and off-road vehicles, like his Toyota FJ Cruiser and Jeep CJ-7. He is a solid trail-leader and recovery expert, and helps lead various overland groups and events.
Taking advantage of his experience in mechanics and extensive knowledge of the Super-Duty chassis, Taylor leads ADV Mobil's ground level fabrication and manages the day-to-day flow of the shop.

As the team extrovert, Jack thrives in production relations, and when needed, is randomly also the shop bouncer.
When looking for a designer to brand the company and design its website, Mike knew he needed someone who understood the overland industry. Having met Mandy at KOAR a few years back in the UP of MI, she seemed like the perfect fit! Now having done the heavy lifting of the initial logo, brand and website design, she helps the team out on a lighter scale with various design work and copywriting.
Mandy loves traveling, paddle-boarding with her dogs, and participating in overland events.
