What We Offer

Complete Van Conversions

Want to turn your van into an adventure vehicle, ready for weekends in the wilderness or extensive travel? We are a full-service shop and offer complete conversions in our shop in Santa Cruz. 

Component Installs

Are you DIYing your conversion but need help with the parts beyond your skill set? Do you want to add specific components to your van: extra windows, vent fans, or solar power, for example?

Start Designing Your Van

Before you start diving into designing your dream van, you need to decide which features you want to include first.

We make it easy to discover what you want (and what you don’t) with our 8 infosheets. 

Each infosheet covers a basic aspect of vanlife (cooking, climate, or “when nature calls,” for example) and the important features for each. Read them, and don’t forget checklists at the bottom. You’ll need to know what features you want in each of these 8 categories before we start building. 

Once you’re 75%+ certain about the features you need and want in your van, complete our Van Conversion Worksheet to request an estimate from us.

After we receive your request, we’ll set up a phone call to talk about your build, ask questions, and brainstorm design ideas, then deliver an estimate for your specific project. 

Are you a DIYer who wants help with a few features? Head over to our DIYer’s Worksheet to tell us what you need.

From exploring the deep wilderness to sleeping in the middle of a bustling city, Levity Van owners feel safe and comfortable seizing the moment because the comforts of home travel with them. Levity Vans are ideal for couples, families, and solo adventurers.

Jimmy Grey

Owner & 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.

Bez Stone

Marketing & Design

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!
