We took a van from Calgary to Vancouver and back. We absolutely loved traveling by van and Escape Campervans made the trip so fun. Aaron from the Calgary depot was great, highly communicative and accommodating. He had our van ready before expected which was a great way to start our trip. We will definitely be using this company for future travels!... Read More

There are really too many amazing things to say so first I'll start with our pick-up location just south of Seattle. We were early so I called ahead to ask if that was okay and they were happy to accommodate our early arrival. The gentleman who helped suit us up was so incredibly friendly and gave tons of advice and tips. We were on our way in less than 30 minutes. The van itself was awesome! We got the Big Sur, for just the two of us, but wanted the extra space for the 10 days. We had so much fun! The van was clean and well appointed. I love the whole community of Escape Campervans. Super chill and happy to help in any way. We've already recommended to so many people and we will definitely be renting again in the near future!!... Read More

Very uncomplicated, competent camper rental. We spent a great time in Canada. The camper equipment was good - what we missed was a tarp for a rain roof and a mosquito net. But you can get both in each garden center ;-). Everything worked fine, super nice people in the rentaloffice and only to be recommended. We will take an Escaper again for our next Canada-trip. Campinginformation: You can find space at the smaller campgrounds (without electricity and running water) even in high season without reservation - but you have to be there in the morning. We only had one reservation for our three weeks most of the time around the icefield parkway. Great quiet places: - Mount Kerkeslin Campground near Jasper - Rampart Creek (here reservation makes sense, but we had luck to find a place without one!) - Golden Eco Adventure Ranch (reserve!) -Dry Gulch, Radium Hot Springs -Marble Canyon Campground near Banff Have a nice trip with your own Escaper :-D...

Hello there Escape Campervan friends, We wanted to share our experience with Escape Campervans. It was just amazing, beautiful, extraordinary!!! We loved it!! We are not joking believe me. So first of all it's our first time in Canada and we went there for 3 full weeks. We started with Montreal, Toronto, than Calgary and finally Vancouver. Our stop in Calgary - Banff was only for 4 full days. So we arrived 2nd July in Calgary and went directly to pick up our Van. We were welcome by Aaron. He was so friendly, heartfull and kind. He explained everything to us. We did all the paperwork and he gave us everything that we could use to sleep and even let us take more stuff that were there from other previous customers that let there for the next tourists. He showed us how everything worked and we were ready to go. We visit Banff, went to a grocery store to buy some stuff for the van and went to a Hot spring. The first night was special because it was the first time camping in a van in a national park. We woke up all the time early to visit the Lake Louise and do some hiking. We did a lot of stuff like Lake Morraine, Lake Minnewanka, Lac Vermillon, Johnston Canyon, Lake Peyto, Lake Bow and do Jasper also. It was sunny, rainy, cold, very cold at night. We suffered a little bit but the experience was worth it. We had the Big Sur, very colorfull, space for 5 people, with a top sleeper. Everything went well we hadn't any problems. We were sad to give it back. Hope to book another journey with Escape Campervans and to show that to my friends and family. Thank you so much to Aaron for his help and kindness you helped us a lot in a journey and without you it wouldn't be the same. See you soon I hope xxx BYE by Ricardo DA SILVA... Read More

Thanks for helping us create a fantastic getaway! Drops the campervan was perfect for the two of us. Clean, easy to drive, great for camping, comfortable for sleeping. The reservation process was seamless. Chris in the Vancouver office was an absolute pleasure to work. We will definitely rent from Escape Campervans in the future.... Read More

Super van super service! Small enough to allow us to reach all of the remote wonderful places and campsites, but big enough for 5 adults to fit (with the roof pop-up)- plus adding a little tent as part of the package allowed us to spread out when we wanted. Thanks Aaron for your friendly and helpful service. Definitely recommend if you want to explore the true Canadian wilderness.... Read More

Such a fantastic adventure, I wouldn't have seen and explored as much as I did if it wasn't for the van. Great set up, well equipped and there wasn't anything missing. I would definitely recommend Escape Campervans.... Read More

We rented a van for 12 days. Reservation and customer service were smooth and easy. Changes were made with ease. Picking up takes a few minutes to review the van details, but was done professionally and courteously by Aaron. We were offered food items left by previous campers and extra propane bottles, also left. Never ran out. Three of us (2 adults and a 12 year old) were comfortable all through our trip. The van was well equipped and kept us warm and dry as we explored Banff, Jasper, Edmonton, Drumheller and Calgary. We cooked almost all of our meals and slept 3 in the bed with lots of room. We could have used an extra blanket, as one of us had a habit of rolling over and taking the cozy duvet with him ;). This is a great way to “camp” while staying dry and without the put up and take down of a tent. We had a fantastic time and would recommend Escape to anyone nimble enough to climb in and out!...

Read about our packing tips here.

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

While our Big Sur, Mavericks, 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 new Indie Campers have a toilet, sink, and indoor and outdoor shower.

How many people can travel in the camper with me?

  • Indie 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).

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) 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!
