WOW! Just wow! My friend and I rented an Escape Campervan to explore Colorado's beautiful sites and it made for an unbelievable experience. The customer service was OUTSTANDING and the van was fully equipped with everything you could want (bike rack, 2 burners to cook, a mini fridge, cutting board, cutlery, tables, chairs, the list goes on....). From pickup to drop off, we felt taken care of. I was able to sleep really well too since the bed was comfortable and they have shades to block out the morning sun. Lastly, it drove great - at first, I thought it would be difficult given it's size but it really wasn't much different from my jeep. 10/10 would rent again and can't wait for our next trip!...

OMG this was SO FUN Myself and 3 friends rented the Maverick and took it from Los Angeles, CA > Zion National Park, UT > Bryce Canyon, UT > The Grand Canyon, AZ > Sedona, AZ > Los Angeles, CA. It was AMAZING! We were totally self sufficient in this campervan, so we could camp anywhere we wanted! It had everything we needed: kitchen, 2 beds, table, storage, fresh water. If you're looking for a fun adventure, this is it! 10/10... Read More

Am dying to book another trip! Our van, Emoji (or fondly referred to as "Mo") did the trick for our 10 day adventure from the Vegas depot to the Denver depot. Extra-special thank you to the employee in the Vegas depot who ave us an extra comforter based on our planned itinerary. While not exactly made for ripping through the Rockies in terms of speed, our trip was comfy, fairly fuel efficient, and exceptionally convenient because of Escape. For two smaller women (both under 5'2"), the bed was extremely spacious and comfy. The kitchen was fully stocked with the required tools and quite functional - moving your camp stove to a picnic table at your campsite made things even easier. Set-up within the van (flipping between bed and table) was simple. There was more than adequate storage for our packs and extra layers of blankets and coats. Would highly recommend booking from Escape for shorter and longer road trips, as the convenience of being able to adjust your itinerary on a whim and always have somewhere to sleep at night is incomparable. It's also a really cost-effective way to travel, as your accommodations are included and you're incentivized to cook for yourself most nights. Everyone we worked with was great, and meeting fellow Escapers in their easy-to-spot vans throughout the trip added a sense of community.... Read More

Hello Escape Team We did a road trip during 2 months with the van SACAGAWEA from may to july of this year. We crossed 9 states from Washington State to California and everything was incredible and wonderful. We want to thank you for this amazing experience. The best of our lives. We cannot wait to see SACAGAWEA one more time for our next road trip in USA in few years. SACA (his nickname) is truly the best van ever, its like someone of our family now. And particular thanks to JOEL in Seattle Oriane, Camille and Audrey 3 bestfriends from Paris.... Read More

I did an 18 day road trip and loved the camper-van. It has enough storage and makes it easy to get off the grid. Will definitely be renting them again!... Read More

We loved our 2 weeks in the Santa Cruz called Dreamland. Additionally, Escape was wonderful to work with planning the trip months in advance, and was always quick to respond to my questions via email. The van was extremely clean, and had plenty of storage space for two people and gear. We traveled about 2,200 miles and we were extremely comfortable the whole time. We were also grateful for the good fuel economy on the Santa Cruz. We were sad when we had to return the van, and we took so many pictures of it because it was so unique. Everyone loved seeing the van, and we would get lots of waves and smiles. It helped make for such a fun adventure. It fit in easily at tent sites in campgrounds, and it also did great outside of campgrounds. We would absolutely rent from Escape again, and we would recommend it to anyone. Thank you, Escape, for helping us make wonderful memories!... Read More

How will I get by without a bathroom in the campervan?

While our Big Sur, Mavericks, Jeep Camper, and Santa Cruz models don’t have bathrooms, our renters do just fine using campground facilities and public restrooms and practicing Leave No Trace principles when dispersed camping. It is a matter of your own comfort level, but the freedom that campervan travel gives you compared to RVs is worth it for many!

If you’d still prefer to have a bathroom, our Newport Campers have a toilet, sink, and indoor and outdoor shower.

How many people can travel in the camper with me?

  • Newport Camper: Seats 6, sleeps 3 (one queen bed and one twin).
  • Big Sur: Seats 5, sleeps up to 5 (2-3 in queen bed, 2 in rooftop sleeper if added).
  • Mavericks: Seats 5, sleeps up to 5 (2-3 in queen bed, 2 in rooftop sleeper if added).
  • Santa Cruz: Seats and sleeps 2 (1 double bed).
  • Jeep Camper:  Seats up to 5 (designed for 2) and sleeps 2 (rooftop sleeper).

Seating is according to how many seat belts are available in each vehicle. You can always add the rooftop sleeper (Big Sur and Mavericks only, standard on Jeep Camper) or bring along our ground tent accessory to sleep more people. Bedding kits are available for rent to accommodate the number of people in your party.

Can I buy the van?

We occasionally sell our more “experienced” campervans—fit out, paint job, and all! Learn more about our used campervans for sale listed on our website, or contact to inquire about buying a campervan. Sign up for our email list or follow us on social media for the most recent updates.
