Loved it, got to be right in some of the national parks for sunset and sunrise, which was my goal. Everything was as advertised. As a middle aged guy, I can report that you have to crawl around a bit when bed is set up, which requires some agility, that I may or may not have had. But you get the hang of it.... Read More

We absolutely LOVED our experience with Escape! Everything about the rental process was extremely easy and simple. The staff at the Las Vegas hub was very helpful and kind. Our van was perfect for the 1300 miles we did through Nevada, Arizona and Utah. We can’t wait for our next trip!... Read More

We rented an Escape campervan out of the SF location for a 3 week trip around California. There were 2 of us traveling in the Maverick model and we felt like we had ample space and all necessary amenities. The only issue we ran into was camping outside Yosemite in pretty cold temperatures, we discovered the heater we got as part of the rental electrical package didn't work. Overall, the trip was phenomenal and the van life made visiting new places and finding places to sleep all too simple. The staff were extremely nice and efficient at both pick-up and drop-off, and also responded quickly when we called support once during the trip. I would recommend an Escape trip to anyone, especially if you're able to catch a good deal.... Read More

We loved our campervan. It was our first time renting one and Escape made the process easy. We had a minor issue during our trip and Escape made things right when we returned the van. I would recommend Escape to anyone.... Read More

Would highly recommend! Great customer service! The van was comfortable & basic. Fit a small pack & play for our 1yr old next to the bed (Maverick style). My husband is 6’1” and just fit in the tent topper. Tent topper was great in all weather- from the desert to the rain. Was a fun way to camp & travel- would love to rent again one day!... Read More

WE hired a van and went to Lassen. It was again a great experience. Very polite and nice folks who work there and no surprises on the bill which always helps. Van worked perfect. Better on gas than I thought. Bluetooth etc worked great.... Read More

We rented the Mavericks With the sleeper top for our family of 3. We were so comfy. Our teen loved “the suitcase”as he called it. The fridge works great. The curtains are black out-key. The staff on both the pick up and drop was off were so helpful and kind. We will frequent this business in the future.... Read More

We had an amazing experience with our Escape Campervan. We rented a Maverick for 16 days and drove from San Fran to Seattle hitting every national park you can think of in between! My 2 friends and I slept very comfortably in the van and utilized the kitchen often during our trip. HIGHLY recommend escape campervan for your next roadtrip!... Read More

The van was super rad!! Pickup was easy, the vehicle was very clean, staff was super friendly and even gave us a free cooler for the trip (apparently a previous guest had left it). We can’t wait to do it again.... Read More

Absolute trip of a lifetime. The van had everything we needed and more, it was one of the best trips and John was incredibly helpful with trip recommendations and help. He often checked in on our groups progress/ well being. A very genuine company that I will definitely be using again in the future. You are doing yourself a disservice but not taking a trip with Escape because that is how great it was. Thanks for everything!... Read More

10/10 would recommend to anyone! My friend and I rented a Maverick, for 6 nights (which is basically your classic white van), but all of the vans in the Escape Campervan fleet are uniquely painted and the particular van we got had the COOLEST design. We LOVED it. The service at the Escape Campervan site was super efficient. We were in and out within 20 minutes. Due to Covid-19 and for ours and their safety, they showed us around the van without actually going inside but also shared explanatory videos with us in case we had questions later. Everything was very reasonably priced and the all-inclusive insurance option for up to 4 people was highly attractive. We really loved our van. As someone who usually does traditional camping, this was a really awesome alternative. Had it been warmer, it might have been a little stuffy sleeping at night, but we didn't have any issues. We were able to tie up a mosquito net in the back part of the van to keep bugs out while we had the back open to cook. Technically this fan sleeps up to 3 people, but I must say, I would imagine that would be a tight fit if your plan was to sleep in the van. The two of us were very comfortable, but a third person might not have been as nice. Overall, we were unbelievably happy with our trip, the service, and the quality of the rental. Would highly recommend and will definitely rent again in the future!... 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!
