The Levity Lifestyle

Pack your gear and leave your life behind while taking all the comforts of home with you.

All the adventure with none of the stress

With the Levity Lifestyle, there’s nothing to worry about—except having fun. 

Our favorite part of owning a Levity Lifestyle is the freedom our fully outfitted home-on-wheels provides. Whether we’ve got a few weeks, a few days, or just a few hours to spare, we’re always ready for a comfortable, spontaneous, and care-free adventure. We just pack up our clothes and food – and we’re gone! No more loading up camping gear (half of which is always missing) only to have a storm blow in so you spend all night crouched in your tent.

With all the touches of home, the Levity Lifestyle beautifully houses features like large sinks and refrigerators that hold a week+ worth of food, hot water showers and cabin heaters, truly comfortable beds, and plenty of solar power. There’s literally nothing to worry about on the road—except having fun.

If the weather changes, inspiration strikes, or plans shift for good or for ill, it’s simply not a problem because you have everything you need (and I mean everything) to feel safe, comfortable, and secure.

 

Stress-free features come standard

  • Plush panel bed system with drawers for clothes and gear underneath

The human touches make a home

Made to last, built for you

We’ve synthesized the best van tech and designs out there to come up with the Levity Lifestyle. From our well-thought-out storage features to the easy to use greywater system, the Lifestyle converts your everyday life into an adventure.

It’s the little human touches that elevate a van into a home – a comfortable bed, Bluetooth-connected tracking of appliances, lighting, battery, and water levels, and warm design features like colorful flooring or cute curtains.

Our designs are efficient and functional – and they also feel good. Because if you want to turn vanlife adventure travel into a lifestyle, you’ve got to feel good inside your van.

FAQs

Can I substitute AGM or other deep cycle batteries for the Lithium ones that come standard?  

In our first conversion years ago, we put in two AGM batteries. We carefully monitored our battery levels to ensure they didn’t drain past 50% and were charging optimally. They lasted only six months until they no longer held a usable charge.

The Lithium batteries we install now have a 10-year warranty and can be drained or filled completely with no negative effects. While they are more expensive up front, they pay dividends in longevity and ease of use—plus they are the environmentally-friendly choice. We can’t support replacing and disposing of batteries every year. In the long run, Lithium is six times cheaper than any other battery.

Do I need really need a vent fan and extra vented windows? 

If you plan on ever sleeping in your van, insulation and ventilation are musts both for your personal comfort and safety and also for the life of your van. An uninsulated van is not a comfortable home away from home—it’s a metal box. Think of it as a cold-blooded animal: if ti’s hot outside the inside of your van will be baking, and if it’s cold outside… you get the idea. In order to sleep comfortably and safely, vents and panels are a must. Additionally, condensation from nights in an unventilated or poorly insulated van contributes to rust formation, which will eat away at your vehicle and sadly shorten its life.

Why don’t you install indoor showers? 

Based on our personal experience and those of our customers, we don’t think indoor showers are worth the space. When you’re working with 70 square feet, every square foot needs to have maximum use. You don’t know how many travelers have told us they only use their indoor shower for one thing: storage. 

That’s why we offer truly functional storage options plus provide an outdoor shower off the back of the van. With the magnetic curtain attached to your open rear doors, you have a private shower in the open-aired glory of nature. 

If an indoor shower is essential for your needs, we know there are many other great conversions companies out there who can do that for you. 

I can’t afford a full conversion. What should I do? 

Many of our customers need to convert their adventure vans on a budget. Many decide to DIY portions of their van in order to trim costs. Our DIY shop is designed to help those converting their own vans with the features beyond their skillsets, like cutting out windows or installing electrical systems.

The holy trinity of any construction job is: fast – cheap – high quality. You can have two out of three, but never all three at once. A conversion shop like ours provides quality services at a fast pace—but it will cost you money. If you have a reasonable skill level and access to YouTube, you can DIY your dream conversion and save money—but it will cost you time (plus a potential dip in quality, depending on your skill level). Fast and cheap naturally signifies a drop in quality.

Many DIY customers come to us after they’ve been working on their vans for years and realize they need help. Others devote six months to the project and complete it with great success.

The key: get real with yourself in terms of your priorities. Whenever you’re looking to save costs, prepare to either spend a substantial amount of time on your build or sacrifice quality.

How do you decide what’s right for you?

Our three biggest tips as you’re dreaming about your van:

  • Do your research
  • Know what you want
  • Know your budget

This sets you up for success because you’ll know what features you need and which ones you don’t. You’ll end up with a van that works for you and your lifestyle – not anyone else’s. Because that’s what vanlife is all about – freedom to be yourself, travel on your own terms, and enjoy the natural world without the typical hassles of camping or limitations of RVs.

We’ll build a van that works for you.

Once you understand your options and know what you want, fill out our Conversion Worksheet. We’ll set up a time to talk on the phone to ask and answer any questions so we can give you an accurate price estimate. We look forward to hearing about your project!

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.
