What makes us different

Above the standard

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.

Meet Our Team

Jimmy Grey

Founder | Designer | Builder

Jimmy’s love of building and mechanics began decades ago with brake jobs at age 10. He wired his first house at 13 with his dad, then became that high schooler who upgraded everyone’s stereo systems just for fun. Levity Vans was born 4 years ago when he saw his uncle’s empty Transit van and thought: “I could do so many customizations to that thing!” He gains satisfaction by helping people’s travel dreams come true.

Bez Stone

Operations | Administration

Bez and Jimmy’s first road trip in a converted ProMaster got her hooked on vanlife travel. The freedom, opportunity, and comfort of being able to go anywhere, anytime inspired her. Always excited to take a leap of faith, Bez encouraged Jimmy to quit his sales job and do what he loved – building. Together they formed Levity Vans, Inc. A Stanford graduate and mom of two, Bez provides Levity Vans with vision, strategy, and reconciled bank accounts.

Judah Maxwell

Lead Technician 

After graduating from Santa Cruz High in 2020, Judah Maxwell elected to put college on pause due to COVID-19 and instead offer his 5 years of electrical and construction skills to Levity Vans (yup—he learned to use power tools at 13). Smart, focused, and eager to tackle challenges, Judah’s innovative ideas help solve customers’ problems and make the shop a more fun and creative place to work.

Ben was born and raised in Hungary and later moved around the world (the Caribbean, U.S., Asia, and Australia) studying and gaining work experience. He graduated from UC Santa Cruz in 2019 and began working in sales and construction.
