Our Journey

From Chile to California

Light Travelers was born in 2017 when the founders, Christopher and Maria, made a life change and left their native Chile for a fresh start and a new perspective in California. Combining Christopher's experience in homebuilding and Maria's family heritage in the high-end furniture business, they decided to convert a Mercedes Benz Sprinter van and make it their new home on the road.

From Custom Vans to Signature Models

Building the first van was the beginning of what would become Light Travelers. In the early days, Christopher and Maria dedicated themselves to building fully-customized vans, offering their customers tailor-made models to suit their unique vision of the outdoor life. This experience led to the design of the pre-engineered Atacama and Patagonia models, inspired by Chile's northernmost desert and southernmost mountain landscapes, to appeal to a wide audience of adventurers.

With over five years of experience and more than 40 vans built, we have the research and development experience to develop state-of-the-art innovations.
