Cascade Locks man creates tiny RV cabins


It’s a step up from glamping and a way to get more visitors out to the Gorge. Though Roger Hicks provides unique cabin RV rentals, he’s hoping they catch on as affordable homes.

Hicks owns Bridge of the Gods Motel and Cabins, where he has transformed his RV park into a cabin village. Each hand crafted wood cabin is under 400 square feet and includes a full kitchen, a jacuzzi tub and bedroom. They range from $109 - $200 a night.

“Everyone who comes here to the woods wants to stay in a cabin. It’s nice to offer a cabin they can stay all night in or take one home,” Hicks said.

But in the last few years, he’s realized they can be so much more. He launched Oregon Portable RV Cabins, hoping people buy them as homes. Each cabin ranges from around $50,000 - $90,000.

“I think our cabins is the answer to affordable housing. We are waiting on the city to allow people to put them in their back yards,” he said.

Hicks talks to More about his cabin designs and how he hopes to turn Cascade Locks into a Gorge destination.
