Gravity Vans started as a side project and turned into a passion project. Our founder left a career in corporate engineering to pursue the nomadic lifestyle in Colorado with his wife. The trajectory of their lives changed when the bed of a truck became a weekend warrior machine and evolved into a 30 ft. off-grid tiny house where they live full-time.
After three years of building, designing, engineering, and manufacturing over 120 vans for other companies in the industry, it was time for Gravity Vans to start offering premium builds in a fraction of the time.
We believe in reducing the barriers to van life by eliminating the wait for your van. All of our builds are completed in 6 weeks or less so that you can get out and start exploring.

Gravity Vans operates under a BYOV (Bring Your Own Van) model, which lets you use the van you already own, or purchase a van at a price that works for your budget.
We offer standardized layouts with options to upgrade or customize with the finishes you want. Our spec builds allow you to get on the road quicker than the competition and drive off with a van that has consistent quality, incredible durability, and a price that is hard to beat.
Strategic engineering and design helps optimize space to include everything you need, and nothing you don’t. We have spent years perfecting the details to make every inch count. That is why our builds are field tested and designed by people that are full time van dwellers, hikers, bikers, skiers, climbers, and outdoor enthusiasts.
We stand behind our work with a 1-year limited warranty for the materials and workmanship of everything we created and/or installed in your van. You can take-off on your next adventure assured of the quality workmanship and personal touches we put into every build.
The Thinking Behind Our Build
Our cabinets are specifically designed for van and RV use. We include special joinery features that make all of our cabinets and framing solutions extremely durable and able to withstand the rigorous lifecycle of a van.
We use high pressure laminate (HPL) on Baltic Birch plywood to ensure strong and durable material. Using HPL makes the cabinets not only durable, but easy to clean, versatile in color, and protects the wood from temperature and humidity changes for all seasons.
Radiant floor heating is installed underneath the flooring, and allows for forced air zone heating.
A vent fan is installed in every van, with the option of including an AC unit.
Our flooring is specially designed to be a one-piece layup. It can withstand temperature changes, with zero visible changes caused by expanding and contracting.
Our design includes a hidden stainless steel custom shower basin that can be easily transformed into a full shower.
The plumbing system is designed to be easily serviceable and maintenance friendly.
The composting toilet design is strategically engineered to optimize space.
We offer the option to include up to five Battle Born 100Ah 12V Batteries in each build.
Our design features a Bluetooth enabled battery and system monitoring.
Our vans have solar, alternator, and shore power charging.
