Now, here’s a detailed look at who Brett Lewis is, his height, age, net worth, personal life, and more.
Meet Brett Lewis, The Star Of Magnolia Network’s Van Go
Chewy Design Co. owner Brett Lewis remodels vans into tiny homes while on the road, innovating creative solutions and tackling the many challenges. That involves custom outfitting each vehicle for his clients’ lifestyles. And all this is documented in each episode of Van Go.
People come to Brett wanting to live in a van and Brett makes that come true. He makes sure the arrangement feels comfortable and cozy, and even luxurious if his clients like it that way.
Van Go‘s, developed by Austin company Rabbit Foot Production Studios, last episode from season 2 “Surf’s Up Hotel” aired on 15 April 2022.
As for Brett’s own van life, he started taking his desires seriously when he upgraded a 1983 Vanagon into something he could actually reside in.
Brett spoke to Tribeza about his van project named “Chewy”. He described that he got Chewy off Craigslist, and it was in rough shape. He had bought it actually to turn into a living space. So, he got it and made it a bit nicer, hoping that he would live in it. He drove this around for two or three years building these out on the road in Chicago, Boulder, and Reno.
Brett Lewis’s Net Worth
It’s been reported that Brett Lewis acquired an estimated net worth of $1 million to $5 million (as of 2022).
He is the owner of Chewy Design Co. And by now, you should know that the startup is about turning vans into mobile dream homes. If you need to know more, it is a domestic limited liability company (LLC) that was incorporated on 22 January 2020 in Austin, Texas. So, far Brett is the only person known to be affiliated with this corporation (as owner as well as director).
One can listen to Brett recall during interviews how he went from not knowing much about interior design and car parts to being a true artist. He apparently launched his company after family members and friends started enlisting his help for van projects.
Brett was working in Austin when his friend, Chad Werner, called from Los Angeles and asked Brett if he would be willing to make a “sizzle reel” to pitch. But when had no idea what this reel was, Chad flew down that night and came and filmed him and that is how Van Go was born.
Fast forward to now, Brett is proud to own a new, large warehouse on East Cesar Chavez.
To make this process even more legit, he also eventually opened up a shop: chewydesignco.com.
So, clearly, Brett has come a long way with Chewy since 2016 when he had to organize a fundraiser to buy his stolen tools.
