Seat four, sleep four with our electric bedlift!
A Van for the whole family
Sleep and seat four people in any sized van we build out.
- Share family meals at the large dinette-turned-master bed
- Electric bed lift provides space-saving bunk beds to sleep four in two double beds
- Full kitchen with deep sink, over 4 cf of fridge space, induction cooktop, and plenty of pantry space to feed the family
- Enough solar-charged battery power to run a blender or microwave
- Ventilated composting toilet gives you true freedom in the city or in the wilderness
The Levity Lifestyle turns your van into a modular adventure vehicle that adjusts to your needs. Have a proper family dinner around the table then play games or art projects after dark. When it’s bedtime, your dining area turns into bunk beds – push a button to watch your bed retract from the ceiling.
The bed lift is there when you need it and not when you don’t. You still have the availability to sleep sideways to save space for other features and preserve cabin space.
We only have so much time before our kids grow older – take your kids on an adventure adventure and share memories for years to come.
Live your Levity Lifestyle
The Levity Lifestyle is without a doubt the most spacious van that you will ever step foot in, and that was our intention for its design. We realized after talking to a lot of people that so many families are drawn to the adventurous lifestyle because they want to cherish the time that they have with their children, friends, and loved ones. However, driving around a large, extended wheelbase van can be very cumbersome. So began the journey to design a family van in a short wheel base Sprinter, and we think that we nailed it!
This is ultra functional and very high tech, including our Levity Lift electric bed lift, special engineered rotating brackets to turn your dinette into a bed, a Rixens hot water and cabine heating system, and a Redarc total vehicle management system…just to name a few.
We have no doubt that you will love your Levity Lifestyle, and we look forward to hearing about the incredible adventures you and your loved ones get to experience as you live out your own Levity Lifestyle!

What’s the difference between the Levity Local, Legend, and Landscape?
The Levity Local and Levity Legend are our two flagship models, custom-designed by our engineers to maximize space while offering top quality.
Both the Local and Legend contain the same top quality components inside like a lithium battery bank, solar power, wool insulation covered with hand-crafted fabric panels, and trendy custom flooring options. The biggest difference between the two is the more functional Local doesn’t contain cabinetry – it’s more minimalist design is best for adventurers who want to stuff gear in pockets or strap larger items to the L-track on the walls.
The layout and cabinets of the Levity Legend mimic those in a land-based home and kitchen, and provide maximum storage for living – pantry items, clothes, gear, and other essentials for extended travel.
The Levity Lanscape is our custom van – different every time based on the owners needs and desires.
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 it’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.
