We are garden-growing, outdoor recreation enthusiasts and vagabonds who spent two years traveling overland (and working) in Australia back in 2008 with our kids. We love good food, coffee, wine and home-grown produce. We also like to build things and make already built things better. Most of all though, we enjoy having adventures in beautiful places, like the Oregon Coast, the canyon country of Utah, high mountains anywhere and the hiking/biking trails and routes of the deep green Pacific Northwest. Since settling in Portland in 2010, we have embraced this wonderfully unique city and state. Please give us the privilege of enabling your adventure with Cascadia. Cheers, Peter
Cascadia is the name of our rear-wheel drive Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. Since being professionally converted a few years ago and receiving substantial further upgrades from us, she has traveled far and wide to destinations including Moab, Zion, Oregon Coast, Jackson Hole, Bend, Crater Lake, the Olympic Peninsula, Joshua Tree, Death Valley and the Sierra Nevada.

About the host, Peter
Peter Hyland canceled the booking 7 days before departure. This is an automated posting.
Cascadia was a dreamy rig for our road trip down to southern CA and back. She was easy to drive in cities and congested highways, and her windshield was an epic picture window to the great outdoors. She had ample solar power to keep us in lights, charge our devices, and power the fantastic sound system along our way. And the kitchen setup allowed us to prepare delicious meals to power our adventures. Peter gave us a thoughtful and thorough once over on the functioning of the van and sent us on our way confident in our abilities to maximize Cascadia’s offerings. And he was always on call to answer questions along our trip. Overall, Cascadia provided a superb introduction to vanlife, and I am already plotting another journey for a future rental. I would recommend this van in a heartbeat. Thanks, Peter!

What a great experience. amazing host, so friendly and accommodating. The rig was just what we needed for a few days driving up and down Oregon coast. Excellent gas mileage and stunner sound system. Apple car play and blue tooth worked flawlessly. Highly recommend.
Cascadia was super fun and comfortable. Peter was awesome in walking through all of the details, and I remembered almost all of it. :)

Awesome! Peter was super helpful & responsive! The van was the envy of all-a great way to travel during covid without using public restrooms! A bit of a learning curve - made easier by Peter. Loved Cascadia!
Unfortunately, Cascadia has had to be returned to Peter, and we have had to go back to work. We spent two incredible weeks camping, in both low temperatures (21F) as well as a glorious 3 days off the grid with solar only charging in southern Nevada. The van performed in all cases, keeping us warm as we needed it and with plenty of battery power to keep the tunes going and the lights on. Peter gave us a thorough walk through of everything Cascadia had to offer, and even texted us on Xmas morning to mention something he had forgotten. Wishing we had more time to travel with Cascadia.
