FAQs

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.
