Hi, I am Ryan Brennan
Hi, I'm Ryan. My family and I love getting out for an adventure here in the North West, and the Dream Machine is how we make it EXTRA GOOD. We're huge Vanagon fans and think sharing this experience with Outdoorsy renters rocks.
We had a great time in Ryan’s cool and 1980s retro Westfalia traveling to the Oregon coast. The ride is smooth and comfortable. My daughter would sit in the back and use the table to draw and craft without ever getting carsick. Be sure you can drive stick if you rent this van. I did like the ability to downshift on going down steep hills and climbing up mountains was never a problem. Ryan has put …
Ryan has a very clean and nice Westy for your Oregon vacation. We enjoyed taking it to the coast right as the Oregon fires hit that area in Sept 2020. That was unfortunate timing but we found a nice campground at Cannon Beach and made the best of the smoke filled air. We enjoyed the local beaches and Ecola State Park. We also appreciated the State Park pass that comes with the van.

We had a wonderful trip with Ryan's vanagon. Ryan was very helpful, went out of his way to accommodate our needs and desires, was very quick to respond to questions and a pure joy to deal with. I definitely would rent from him again. The van was ideal for our needs. We toured the Olympic Peninsula in Washington for a week - and camping this way was so easy - the simplicity of having a stove built in was perfect. The van performed great - not one issue.
If you're reading reviews contemplating doing something like this for the first time, I highly encourage you to take a chance and book a trip in the vehicle. My wife and I booked with Ryan during the rainiest, coldest week in October and we still enjoyed every moment of this experience. 90% of what you need to camp is already in the van and there are thousands of beautiful destinations in Oregon you can easily explore. The van drives great and is very comfortable, just make sure you can drive drive a manual and are ready to have a great time.
Ryan was great! He was very timely and helpful with communication and made sure we had everything we needed for our trip. The bus ran really well! It handled well on the curvy roads to/from the coast and it climbed over the Cascades and up/down Crater Lake and handled fine in the winds of the high desert country. The defroster blower wasn't working, which forced us to wipe down the inside of the …
Ryan was so great to work with - very relaxed, yet thoroughly explained how everything worked. My phone died the day we left and he was super patient and understanding with the communication difficulties that presented during our trip. The Dream Machine worked like a dream - very reliable and comfy. We had everything we needed and Ryan was super hospitable. Five stars from me and my 6 yo!
Great trip in the Dream Machine. We had an amazing time in Oregon and Washington State. The van works really well, was super clean and comfortable. Ryan is a great guy who did every thing to make our trip great. Super nice and flexible!
It was an awesome trip!
We had an excellent time renting Ryan’s Vanagon Westfalia for a tour of Oregon! The pop-top provides unmatched views out the screened in tent for camping, or even just for a relaxing lunch. The expansive windows and excellent driving position allow for an immersive experience driving through Oregon’s excellent state parks and public highways. Would absolutely rent this vehicle again!
The van was great and is in very good shape. New tires and rims made it feel secure on all roads. We had a great time and now want to buy our own!
