By the nature of the custom work we do, the process and experience is tailored to each client. As some general guidelines, here is our process.
There are lots of camper van conversion companies. We aren’t like most. At Ray Outfitted, we specialized a bit more and also work on more than just conversion vans. Our focus is in off grid electrical, lithium batteries, custom fabrication - working across industries including automotive, RV and solar.
Visit our “About Us” page to get to know us a bit more. Throughout this website you can see photos of Ray Outfitted projects. Raynor’s experience in automotive, marine and small engine coupled with his breadth of work in the custom camper community makes him an excellent partner for owners & businesses.
The Ray Outfitted team is on the road in the van that inspired the founding of Ray Outfitted. Madison manages the business, while Raynor delivers quality, personalized, onsite services. Our upfitted van is fully self-contained and off grid capable, Ray Outfitted brings the know-how AND the tools needed to your custom project. Available for projects coast to coast in Canada, contact us to discuss.
Due to the custom nature of the work and services, costs vary. With your detailed plans, Ray Outfitted can provide early estimates. For most custom projects, an initial telephone consultation is valuable. This is when you’ll meet Raynor, who will work to understand your goals and provide insights for your consideration. Based on that conversation, Ray Outfitted will follow up with a emailed estimate for you review.
Often our clients are considering multiple projects and debating on timeline, budget or otherwise. We break down our estimates to allow projects to be spaced out or rolled into one larger project.
Ray Outfitted does not carry inventory, instead we have a network of suppliers. This means we don’t have any outside pressure to sell any particular project, product or brand. Our commitment is to our clients and their projects.
4. Supplier & Dealer Network
Working across Canada on a wide range of projects and project lead times, we foster a growing network of suppliers and dealership partners to support our clients. Since we don’t carry inventory, all onsite projects are booked based on lead time for materials and next available opening in Ray Outfitted’s calendar.
5. Booking Projects
Madison will work with you on booking your project. A 50% deposit is required to confirm the project and begin ordering the required project materials. Ray Outfitted arrives onsite or ships materials in advance for all onsite projects.
Ray Outfitted can only work on Canadian soil. It is legal for non-Canadians to visit Canada and have a project completed. In the USA, we highly recommend Off The Grid Camper.
Could we bake bread?
Clients Jamie & Lisa put Ray Outfitted’s off grid electrical to a bread test. It was delicious.
