DIYer Component Installs

DIYing your conversion and need help with what’s beyond your skill set? We’ve got you covered with our specific component installs like windows, vent fans, or electrical work. 

What makes us different

Above and beyond the standards 

Typical RV’s last only a few years before a cabinet handle snaps off or the electrical system stops working. 

Our vans are built to last decades, using real wood, excellent components, and home-quality construction methods. We look ten steps ahead and avoid costly repairs because we build it right the first time. 

We build homes not warehouses

Some vans are built to store your stuff, like warehouses on wheels. 

We build homes on wheels.

Small personal touches turn a vehicle into a home. Our designs are warm and beautiful. Because the most important aspect of the van is ultimately you.

Safety when you need it most 

Driving, cooking, and sleeping inside a small space demand safe solutions. We offer only the highest quality components and installation methods when it comes to electrical work, ventilation, and durability.  

We value clear communication

We make outfitting your van is exciting and easy from start to finish. We value clear and honest communication with our customers as much as we value the technical precision of a build. Our holistic approach means you feel included in what’s going on every step of the way.

Jimmy Grey

Founder & Lead Builder

My love of building and mechanics began decades ago with brake jobs at age 10. I wired my first house at 13 with my dad, then became the high schooler who upgraded everyone’s stereo systems. Levity Vans was born 4 years ago when I saw my uncle’s empty Transit van and thought: “I could do so many customizations to make that truly unique!” I’m happy to help people’s travel dreams come true.

Operations & Admininstration 

Our first two-week road trip in a converted ProMaster got me hooked on vanlife travel with kids. The freedom, sense of opportunity, and comfort of being able to go anywhere, anytime inspire me to support Jimmy’s vision of Levity Vans. Follow us on Instagram to see my handiwork and to share your travel photos. One step closer to adventure!
