RV Life, Recreation on Wheels

Explore new sights and make lasting memories. "If you can dream it, we can build it"

If adventure’s what you seek, OCRV Center can get you there.

From the surf to the desert to the mountains, Southern California is the place to be for an action-packed experience unlike any other.

Art Ashley, owner and operator of OCRV Center, has been in the business of repairing and restoring countless RVs across Orange County for more than 35 years.

“We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of RV services, so our customers can benefit from the full experience in one location,” he says.

OCRV Center is housed in a 38,000-square foot facility and features state-of-the-art equipment.  Art, along with his wife, Bonnie, oversee the daily operations of the bustling business.

Accidents happen on the road—but they don’t have to derail your plans for adventure. From minor fender benders to a major collisions, OCRV Center’s skilled crew will get the job done efficiently, getting you back on the road with as little downtime as possible.

The OCRV team specializes in top-to-bottom RV repair, including leaks, window and fiberglass repairs, generator repairs, and collision repairs. They work with all major insurance companies and handle your claim from start to finish.

In addition to repairs, the one-stop shop can also tackle your RV renovation or remodel, whether you want to reimagine a singular space or the entire vehicle. OCRV can restore your RV from the inside out with four spray painting booths, upholstery machines, custom-built woodworking machines, and more.

No matter what you envision, OCRV provides a highly customized look that you won’t find elsewhere.  

When it’s time to make some upgrades to your RV, camper, truck, boat, bus, camper van, or sprinter van, OCRV has you covered with several upgrade options.

Customers can choose from options like a fully off-grid solar panel system, water purifying system, StarLink internet, outside security cameras, and even backup cameras designed to help you safely navigate with ease.

Art and Bonnie are always looking for new ways to expand their business. The latest addition to OCRV is VANaholic, which provides DIY sprinter van conversion kits to create the camper van of your dreams.

VANaholic’s conversion kits are designed for Mercedes Sprinter Vans, RAM ProMasters, and Ford Transits. With their innovative kits, you can transform your van into a mobile hotel.

VANaholic camper van kits offer four color options and floorplans. They are conveniently modular, offering you the portability and mobility to adjust to your family’s lifestyle.

What makes VANaholic kits worth the initial investment? They’re competitively priced, aerospace-engineered, and lightweight—35% lighter than wood, in fact. Your conversion kit can be installed by the VANaholic team or shipped to you anywhere in the United States.

OCRV is truly a family affair. Art’s son, AJ, works as the business’s Estimating Manager. Rounding out the OCRV family team is their daughter, Addison, and adorable dog, Kuiper, whose daily duties entail serving as the official OCRV mascot.

As a family unit, they prioritize taking time away from the daily grind to hit the road and explore the great outdoors together. Some of their favorite locations include Big Bear Shores in Fawnskin, CA, a desirable destination known for its majestic mountains, fishing, and off-roading excursions, and Anza Borrego.

At Borrego Springs RV Park, they enjoy golfing, off-roading, beautiful flowers in the spring and hiking to a desolate waterfall in an oasis of palm trees in the desert.

“Our love for traveling began with our love for the ocean—boating, fishing, and then to the desert and high mountains, RVing and off-roading with family and friends. We want our customers happy and out on the road, traveling safely in their perfect RV environment,” says Bonnie.

Don’t miss out on your family’s next opportunity to see new sights and make lasting memories. When you’re working with the best in the business, the sky is the limit. As Art and Bonnie say, “If you can dream it, we can build it!”

Call or stop by OCRV Center for any of your outdoor adventure needs, where you’ll be treated just like family.
