FAQ

What is Kift?

Kift is a co-living company that brings together vanlife, clubhouses in unique locations, and community for a new way to live, work, and explore the West Coast, while enjoying all the comforts of home.

How does Kift work?

Kift is a new way to live. Our vans replace your bedroom as a movable, tiny home, connected to remote locations and urban destinations across the West. Our clubhouses are your home bases — a place where you can relax, recharge, hang out, and be productive. We have fast wi-fi, fresh facilities, laundry, and cozy common spaces to work and relax.

Included in your membership is a stocked kitchen and pantry with all the essentials you need to make healthy meals and snacks. You can also borrow excursion-specific gear — like mountain bikes or paddle boards — so you can get into nature.

How much does a membership cost?

We know everyone's journey may look a little bit different and we want to make sure our pricing is flexible and inclusive for everybody. Our base membership is $100 per year, and full memberships are $150 per month. Pricing for our vans and locations vary depending on how you want to use Kift. Learn more about our membership options on our pricing page here.

Can I do Kift temporarily, for a weekend or a couple of weeks?

While we will introduce weekender options for short-term stays later, our primary goal is to provide an alternative to traditional housing. We see Kift as a strong community, and maybe even a prototype for the city of the future — we’re looking for people who want to build that with us.

Can children be part of the Kift community?

Not yet! Check back as we continue to grow to learn more about how we can serve families with children.

Where are your clubhouses?

Our first outposts will be in open, natural environments like Ojai and Big Sur, California; Black Rock Desert, Nevada; and Zion National Park.

We'll later be launching in urban centers including San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, and others, while expanding to beaches, forests, deserts, and mountains across the West. Stay tuned for specifics on locations.

Do I need to have a van?

Yes. We are a place for people who have decided to live a little bit differently. Kift is designed with van life in mind. Think of your van as your mobile bedroom; our clubhouses have everything else you need.

Can I bring my own van?

You are welcome to bring your own van, provided it meets our high standards and is in good condition.

I have an RV or trailer. Can I join Kift?

We are focused on vans to start, but RVs that are under 25 feet long and meet our standards are welcome.

How do I sign up?

Sign up here to join our waitlist and be notified when additional membership slots become available.

What happens after I sign up?

We will be in touch to get to know you a little bit better so we can continue to build our community with intention. We’ll also keep you updated as we prepare to open our locations and get people on the road.

What are your values?

At Kift, we are actively working to build a diverse and inclusive community. We want to create a more sustainable, affordable, and equitable way of living that is an open, welcoming, and safe space for people of all backgrounds.

When will Kift be available?

Our first cohort will be setting out in 2021. This will be a small group helping us prototype our community and service offering, making sure we get everything right before we bring on more people. We will be relying on this first group for constructive feedback and support building and codifying our values and charter so we can continue to build our core community with safety, inclusion, and belonging for all.

We’ll be in touch throughout the process so you can plan accordingly.
