We had a nice time driving through Arizona and Utah in an escape camper van. Although the van was quite nice and large and roomy, we were a bit disappointed that it didn't come with a charger, an auxillery cord, a flashlight or lantern, a power adapter etc. I know these are all extra but it's cheaper to pack your own which is a hassle. Plus we have lived in camper vans from outdoorsy in Canada in the past and they provide all these things at no extra cost plus amazing tips on beautiful areas where to stay. Escape camper vans feels much more business- like and not as personal. In addition, we were told we can pick a van from the parking lot on the day of pick up after we called to ask several times if we can pick the artwork. The lady said no problem. We got to the location on the day of pick up and were told no, they already chose the van for us. I didn't like this miscommunication. I complained and got another van that was more colourful and happy artwork, not as dark and scary as the original van, but we had to wait an hour and a half until the van was ready for us. It just bothered me that we were given wrong information when we called the company several times prior to pick up date to make sure we would be able to pick a van with artwork we liked. On top of that, we were annoyed that we didn't fully map out our trip and after the first day we called to ask if we can pay for 2000miles instead of just the included 1000 and they said no, that we will just have to get charged.25 per mile which equalled about An extra $250 for us. For some reason as well we have extra charges on our credit card from the company and need to spend the time now figuring out why.... Read More

Excellent solution for the roaming traveler. Comfortable and functional. We had a mix up on the terms of the contract and they took responsibility for it. We'd use them again.... Read More

We absolutely LOVED our van (Maverick) and experience with Escape Campervans. Everyone was very friendly and helpful! This was our first real road trip and the van made it so easy, and crazy fun! We loved being able to hang out in the van, cook, have a sink, and being able to drive it in the city. We will definitely be using Escape Campervans again and I would recommend this company to anyone. Hoping they get a San Diego location soon :)... Read More

This place was awesome, unfortunately I got stuck with a associate who didn't really care that much. Make sure everything works before you leave, such as solar power. The refrigerator didn't work even though the employee said it takes a little while for it to get warmed up.... Read More

I'd give them a million stars if I could! I had been eyeing them for a while and finally decided to book a van to drive out to the Grand canyon and Sedona. I was so happy with the entire process, I had questions before I bought the Groupon I used and they were so nice to chat with via email and on the phone. We got the Love van and loved it! Mack was super nice helping us get aquatinted with the van and everything. Sleeping in the van was great and my husband loved the Coleman stoves for cooking. We can't wait to get an escape again!...

Meine Freundin und ich haben uns den Van für 3 Wochen ausgeliehen, um den Süd-Westen der USA zu erkunden. Vor Ort war das Personal freundlich und wir wurden super empfangen. Uns wurde der Van erstmal erklärt und was alles zu beachten ist. Danach ging es auch schon gleich los. Der Van ist auf jeden Fall ein Blickfang und wir haben häufig nette Komplimente bekommen. Auch die Abgabe des Vans hat sehr gut geklappt. Dieser Urlaub bleibt in Erinnerung! :)... Read More

My friend and I rented one of the Mavericks vans for a whole week so we could go on an amazing, week-long outdoor adventure. It was honestly one of the best vacations we've ever had, and we loved everything about our van so much! The bed was HUGE and very comfortable, the kitchen was great, the van drove well, and we had nothing but a fabulous experience. Escape as a company was also great---I have no complaints! 10/10, would highly recommend.... Read More

Frequently Asked Questions:

Are your campervans 4-wheel drive?

All of our vehicles are 2-wheel drive. If you plan on driving in the colder months, we recommend renting snow chains.

I don’t want to draw attention to myself. Do you have any plain campervans?

We do not offer plain vans. We have 600+ vans in our fleet, and each one is hand-painted and unique! Our renters typically experience positive interactions with other travelers and locals via the artwork (it’s a great conversation starter for making friends on the road). Learn more about our artwork.

What make & model are your campervans?

We currently have 4 models in our fleet:

These are among the most economical in North America and are easy to drive and park.

Do I need to empty the black water from the Indie Camper before returning it?

Yes! Unlike our campervans, the Indie Camper needs to be taken to a dump station BEFORE you drop it off. You can find these at most campgrounds to avoid having to pay a fee.

What equipment comes with the campervan?

Escape includes the following free of charge with every campervan rental (varies slightly for Santa Cruz and Indie Camper). 

  • Convertible bed fit out / “dining room” area with storage space
  • Kitchen fit out with sink, refrigerator, and stove
