El día de la recogida de la camper tuvimos un problema de atasco en New York y Andrew estuvo esperándonos 2 horas, fuera de su horario. Nos recibió muy amablemente. Hemos viajado de manera muy cómoda y agradable. Hemos hecho muchas millas desde Jersey a Niagara, pasando por Boston, y vuelta. No hemos tenido ningún problema con la campervan. Las explicaciones de Andrew fueron perfectas y nos dieron mucha seguridad. El trato al cliente de Andrew y sus compañeros es perfecto. Quizás echamos de menos mayor limpieza en la cocina de gas y cinturones de seguridad. Estamos contentos, lo recomendaremos.... Read More

We rented an escape camper van in Banff. This was our 4th time using escape campervans & once again.. it did not disappoint. Aaron was so fantastic at check in making sure we understood everything and gave us SUCH GREAT recommendations of what to see based on our hiking abilities. He listened to us and what we wanted out of this trip. The van is was amazing. We are used to using the Mavericks. When we checked in Aaron said to us.. once you use big sur once you will never go back.. and it’s true. Big sur was PERFECT! So worth the extra money.. and it drives so smoothly and easily. We had a minor issue with the sliding door of our van.. had previously been damaged so when we took it out we had issues with it latching correctly and continuously saying door was ajar. Not a big deal to us.. but they immediately apologized when we told them about it and refunded us a small convenience amount. They are such a great company and Aaron is clearly passionate about his job!! 4th time using.. and 4th GREAT experience!... Read More

Would highly recommend Escape Campervans. The Vans are brilliantly outfitted and made for a simple, no fuss trip. Really comfortable and quiet to sleep in as well. The customer service from Chris, Kyle and Breanne was excellent. Very friendly and helpful people. We plan to use escape vans again and again!! Thank you!... Read More

This fourth time i rented a van, While i was told that the maverick was not available, I rented the big sur to have my trip booked. When they tried to resolve the issue but couldn't work it out. The people were nice enough to lower the price.... Read More

It was a great experience travelling around in the national parks of the Canadian Rocky Mountains with an Escape Campervan. Our «SnowKat» was a loyal companion. Compared to other RVs, it was really cute but maneuverable on the Bow Valley and Icefields Parkways and on small campsites with tight turning radii. Therefore, we could choose any campground without having restrictions on vehicle length. We highly recommend an ax to cut the firewood at the campsites in the national parks of Alberta and British Columbia , and a canopy for rainy and sunny days. We felt safe and secure, knowing that we can call Danielle at any time for assistance with technical problems, but this was not necessary. Aaron Santos, the store manager at Calgary, gave us many advises and hints for trips in the Rockies. He always answered quickly on e-mails and promised that we would have a unique time with „SnowKat“ – and that is what we really had!... Read More

Great experience with Escape Campervans! Our family 5 flew from London to spend time in Denver mixed with a hand full of days of camping. The BigSur (+rooftop sleeper) was exactly what we needed to hit the road. Cant wait for our next adventure!... Read More

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! Learn more about our used campervans for sale listed on our website, or contact vansales@escapecampervans.com to inquire about buying a campervan.
