About the Canadian Van Lifers
Between Sasha and Cody, there is enough "lifetime experience" to keep you listening to their stories past bedtime. Passionate, driven and hard-working. These two know how to live simply without being simple. They started living the Canadian Vanlife when they bought and camperized their own Mitsubishi Delica, living out of it for 6 months. They celebrated Canada's 150th anniversary, exploring Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho National parks. They climbed popular peaks in the Rockies and mastered the art of slab climbing on the coast of British Colombia. The goal was to never stop exploring and that's why they started Canadian Van Lifers.
I had a wonderful time with the Campervan and it was better than advertised. How they squeezed so much into a small van is amazingly clever and Cody even took me to get water, which I hadnt planned on.
My trip prior didnt go smoothly, but Cody was patient and was able to work around my timing issues.
They also kept me informed of the potential weather issues closing down roads in the Rockies.
Wow! My experience renting this van from Cody, as a solo woman, was exceptional. I picked up the van on Wednesday in Canmore. After a van training with Cody, he took me to a local spring to fill up the water reserve with fresh & clean spring water. Then I was on my way. I drove up to Jasper in Wednesday and camped out of the van in Snarring (a spot Cody had recommended and was awesome). I camped t…
Cody and Sasha were great from the start, so helpful and friendly. The van enabled us to get to everywhere we wanted to go and was comfortable after long days hiking. It was kitted out with everything we needed and worked well for us. We were apprehensive about driving on the 'wrong side of the road' for the first time but we soon got used to it and appreciated the time Sasha took to give us a mini lesson. Like other reviews mention we also attracted some attention for the uniqueness of the van, so was a good talking point. Overall we loved the van and the Rockies...how can you not!
We rented out Cody and Sasha’s van for our honeymoon trip in the Canadian Rockies for a total of nine days. My wife and I had a wonderful time with the van. This was our first time ever doing something like this and I would highly recommend everyone to try this at least once in their life. Especially with how Cody and Sasha treated us, we not only felt comfortable during this trip, we also felt ve…
We had a wonderful two weeks in the Canadian Rockies and Okanagan Valley. The car brought us anywhere we wanted to go, bad logging roads were no problem at all. The bed was very comfortable, and the car's interior is a very well thought through compromise between minimum outer size and maximum inner volume. Anything you want in a camp kitchen was there. Driver and passenger seat were comfortable as well,on long drives and on bad roads. Right hand drive was no issue at all.
Cody is awesome! Got to canmore after 26 hours of travel and the legend bought me coffee!!
The van is all you need, all amenities are included and the mattress is so comfy! The absolute best way to see Canada!!
Cody is a legend ! we came from Australia and he couldn't have been more helpful and kind. Nothing was a hassel for him, Brenda the car was a treat to drive and camp in and he even left a beer for my first camp hidden in the back. Everything I needed for camping was there. Comfy bed and a hassel free driving through the rockies, I CAN'T SPEAK HIGHLY OF THIS MAN, thank you , you made my reunion with my daughter a dream adventure we will remember forever, lots a love n luck to ya brother.
Our experience with Cody and Sasha could not have been any better. They were quick to reply and coordinate with our flight times, and took the time to make us feel comfortable with (and excited about) the van before we took off. You can tell from the moment you get there that they love sharing the experience of van life! Janis had everything we needed for a perfect trip to Jasper and Banff- we coo…
Absolute wonderful experience!!! Everything went smoothly with booking and Sasha and Cody were awesome to deal with! Our first rental through outdoorsy. Owners were very helpful and quick to respond and assist with our transportation. We took Janis around for our honeymoon and had the best time for just shy of two weeks. The van was equipped with everything and more that we needed! Very comfortable for sleeping and drives great. Would highly recommend to rent Janis from them a hundred times over!! The ONLY way to view the Canadian Rockies!!
Cody and the Van Lifers crew provided a great experience! The Dodge is exactly as advertised. They have provided all the necessities plus extras to make for an easy trip. We especially appreciated the spices, towels, storage space, park pass, and bear spray. Communication was prompt and easy. Would highly recommend renting from Cody, Sasha, and their crew!
