Our van conversions are based on clean, functional floor plans that utilize space and optimize usability. Every detail is designed with the user in mind, from the power bank, to the depth of the kitchen sink. We put our energy and focus into designing van interiors that match the lifestyle that climbs aboard. In short, we aim for Feng Shui. We believe our immediate environment plays a huge role in our experiences and our goal is to harmonize that environment. Whether you just bagged a 14,000' peak or knocked down 30 miles of trail, we want you to come back to your mobile-basecamp and find immediate comfort in your abode. We choose materials that appeal aesthetically and layouts that are clean and spacious. We emphasize a feeling of home wherever you may roam.
First and foremost, we want to get to know you. We want to know what makes you feel alive, what puts pep in your step, and of course, what draws you to van life! Once you've familiarized yourself with our site, our conversion style, and FAQ below, we'll kick things off with an open email dialogue to establish what your custom van conversion entails and make sure we're a good fit for each other. Top to bottom, inside and out. We'll talk components, layout options, and explore the possibilities of your budget and our capabilities.
Once we have a solid game plan for your customized van, we'll require a $2,5oo deposit to secure your spot in our build calendar. We'll sign contracts to finalize your van conversion timeline, budget and layout.
As your build date approaches we require 50% of the balance to be paid so we may finish ordering components to keep your build on schedule. We ask that you drop your van off to us one week prior to its anticipated start date.
Once your van is in our hands the magic starts happening! Throughout the build you'll receive photos and updates as your van conversion comes to life.
The remaining balance will be due two weeks prior to pickup of your completed van conversion.
We're not crying, you're crying! Okay, maybe we're crying too...
When you come to pick up your new home on the road, we'll give you the rundown on every feature and component we've added, and of course toast a frosty beverage. This usually takes one to two hours depending on the amount of features in your build. Once you feel confident with all the systems and features, we'll see you on your way and wave you off into the sunset!
Now get lost! (and we mean that in the most polite way possible) Get out there and get after it! Knock down that bucket list, drive the unmarked roads, wander farther, and stay longer! We love seeing your adventures so tag away @cascadecustomvans !
Our builds include off grid solar systems designed specifically for your energy needs. For everyone from the digital nomad to the diehard tailgater, we have your power needs covered.
Good food fuels great adventures. Save dehydrated meals for the trail and go as gourmet as your heart desires. Our custom van kitchens feature everything your inner-chef craves.
Our environment plays a substantial role in our feeling of well-being and comfort. We believe that all starts with materials themselves. Every surface and finish is hand-picked with you in mind.
While we believe in roughing it, we understand not everyone is comfortable answering nature's call in the great outdoors. If a shower or toilet is an absolute must, let us know and we'll find a customized van solution that works for you.
Nothing gets you ready for tomorrow like a solid nights' sleep. Every build features a brand new, memory foam mattress. Just don't forget your favorite pillow.
If there are any specialty components you must have, just let us know! Hotspots, light bars, air compressor, you name it and we'll do our absolute best to incorporate whatever it is to ensure your van conversion feels just as you'd hoped it would.
We do not provide the base vehicle. You will need to provide us with the vehicle to begin your van conversion.
Our builds range in price based on size of vehicle, cost of components and labor entailed. Prices also vary based on customizations to design/layout. Keep in mind adding more bells and whistles will drive up the cost of your custom van buildout. Please review below before submitting an inquiry.

This is hard to answer. Every van build is different and the number of components and customizations affects the turnaround time. The size of the van also influences the timeline. The average van conversion usually takes about 8-12 weeks.
Due to high demand and production capacity we are only building on the RAM Promaster and Mercedes Sprinter chassis. At this time we are not converting Ford Transits, E-series vans, etc.
No. We recommend checking out Lightstream Financing or your community Credit Union to discuss your financial options.
We're currently booked out until Winter 2021. With a surge in the van life movement we only offer a limited number of custom build slots each year. We also release several spec build throughout the year which you may find over on our Vans for Sale page for more info.
Our best advice is to have your van already purchased, financing in order and contact us as soon as possible for more information on our next available build date.
At this time we do not offer *indoor* showers in our vans. However, we do offer outdoor showers for those who would like one.
Per Oregon law we will *only install* second row seating if the seat meets Department of Transportation requirements. We recommend you check with your states seatbelt requirements especially if this will be for a child or additional passenger.
