Perfect experience! Super easy pick-up. Van was in great condition, super affordable and good on dirt roads. Return was just as easy as pickup. Highly recommended!... Read More

Loved every second of this trip. Prices are great for what you get. We will definitely be planning another trip with escape in the near future!!... Read More

A great experience!! I definitely recommend. Super fair and honest, we did the base model for a long weekend and it was great. Picked up in Seattle just south of the airport and got to work with Joel who was super helpful. This was our first van camping experience and we will definitely be using them again for our next trip!... Read More

Stefanie Lewerenz

Very fast, friendly and professional pick up and drop off process. Joel in Seattle is awesome! And the van itself, Bourbon St.,was comfortable, had a great setup with the kitchen area, the fridge and lighting. Camping was made much easier without having to worry about the elements of weather, although a hook on tarp or an awning over the kitchen and side doors would have been nice in the rain. I just rigged something up by myself and it worked. My trip was wonderful, the van ran well and I had no problems, but felt completely covered in case I did.... Read More

The cutest van. The process of renting was smooth and easy. We used the Big Sur CABANA van to travel all around the East side of Colorado for a week. We used her well and are now looking into buying our own. Definitely recommend this affordable option. Opportunities just show up when you choose escape campervans... Read More

Amazing experience with escape campervans. The van had everything we needed, had plenty of room, and the staff was super helpful. When we had an issue, the customer service was stupendous and was able to take care of everything quickly and efficiently. I would definitely rent again for my next adventure!... Read More

We rented Big Sur van for 5 days to explore Banff and surrounding areas for 5 days. The vans was clean and in a great operational shape. Both pickup and drop off was totally hassle-free. Aaron did a great job explaining all details about the van, specifics of the van and overall really did an outstanding job in terms of customer service. Can definitely recommend!... Read More

Michal Samek

Entire experience was amazing. Aaron was incredibly helpful in setting us up for our trip, ensured we had the necessary supplies and equipment along with offered plenty of recommendations for areas to visit which we took him up on! The pick up and drop off process was seamless and smooth, Aaron even dropped us off at our hotel afterwards! 10/10 would recommend and would definitely reuse their services for my next trip!...

TL;DR—Super friendly and helpful team, great experience in the Canadian Rockies. We had booked a Big Sur campervan from September 16 to October 10, 2021. Pick up and drop off were straightforward. We thought it was great that Aaron, the hub manager, took time for us to give us helpful tips and personal recommendations! About the campervan but not least about the National Parks and Provincial Parks, according to our itinerary. The free wifi was also very convenient as we arrived in Canada by plane just before. The Big Sur was the perfect size for us and had enough storage space for our stuff. We traveled with two 80 liter trekking backpacks, as we were camping in the backcountry among other things, and also with two 36 liter hiking backpacks and a medium sized suitcase. Most of it found space in the second row of seats, while we had stowed individual items in the drawers in the back of the campervan. The electric heater proved to be a brilliant recommendation from Aaron during our trip to have a little more comfort now and then—electric hookup at a campground provided. But even without additional heating, the nights were quite okay with enough sheets and clothes. By the way, since the bed takes up the entire width of the campervan, this provides enough space for two persons. We had no breakdowns or other problems during our adventure. In summary: Our Big Sur Campervan was a reliable and comfortable vehicle in a reasonable size. (Especially in relation to the sometimes huge RVs at campgrounds!). In short, we highly recommend Escape Campervans in Calgary and Aaron and his team! ... Read More

Conveniently located by the LAX airport we were able to pick up our van early and got a head start to Yosemite National Park where we spent 3 nights and there is nothing better than having your own transportation and lodging right here. After the stay at Yosemite we decided to extend our camping trip and headed over to the Pacific Coast Highway to knock off another item on our bucket list. We were having such an amazing time that the miles didn't matter. Looking forward to renting another van next year..Thank you Escape camper vans for an unforgettable vacation.... Read More

Read about our campervan packing tips.

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!

  • 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.

We occasionally sell our more “experienced” campervans—fit out, paint job, and all!
