Was a great experience. We got the maverick and it was the perfect size for a couple. Didn't have any issues with the van. It was a little sluggish going up mountain passes but other than that it was capable for most excursions.... Read More

Great van rental company! The guys at the Denver branch are very nice and laid back. It was the easiest car rental experience and it was also basically lodging for our whole trip. I highly recommend getting an Escape Campervan and going on an adventure.... Read More

I am updating my review to five stars because, while it took contacting the company president to resolve, they did resolve my issue regarding the undocumented gas levels and associated charge and I appreciated the responsiveness, despite the mix up at the location. The van was quite comfortable for sleeping and hanging out. It stays suprisingly cool in the sun (not really sure how, but it's great). I do wish they would add curtains or provide a blocker for the windshield because even though curtains go around the entire back, the front windows and windshield let in a lot of heat. SO again, stayed pretty cool but small addition could make it that much better. The fridge is fantastic and if you are going to be parked long it works quite well as an ice box. The battery that charges it seemed to last forever. We didn't have to move the vehicle to charge the back battery for at least three days (didn't have a need to try any longer). But again, works great as a cooler if you worried about parking for 3+ days without moving the vehicle. You can also jump the main battery from the back battery in you were in a pinch, which is nice. Some of the vans are older and we had a brief moment of check engine light, but absolutely no mechanical issues or any problems with the vehicle itself. Again, the fold down bed is *quite comfortable* -- shockingly cozy for van bed and I have a a very expensive sleep number at home so I am picky! Fair warning though, make sure they mark BOTH places where the gas level is recorded. They charge $10 a gallon if you return the van with "less than it had when you checked it out." Highly recommend!... Read More

We rented The Escape Mavericks campervan for a 14-day tour of the Southwest and had a great experience from beginning to end. Customer service was professional and Daniel at the Phoenix location went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed for our trip. The van itself was basic but rugged and dependable. The unique art on each van is definitely an appealing feature and great conversation starter! Would highly-recommend!!... Read More

Me and my girlfriend rented our van (the Big Sur) at the Seattle location. David was really helpful and made pick-up quick and easy. Few signatures and before we knew it, we were on the road to explore all the wonders of Washington. The van drove smooth with ZERO issues, especially for having almost 300K miles (I think these vans are rated up to 1 million miles). It was comfortable to drive and gas mileage wasn't bad considering all the gear and size of the vehicle. The kitchenette was really convenient and included a kitchen kit, stove, small refrigerator and pump-style sink (holds 5 gallons of water, which was plenty). The sleeping and living arrangements were great! In the days we enjoyed the couch/bench with table which made it easy to get some work done and have meals out of the rain. The couch folds out to a queen size bed and the table easily stows away underneath the bedding. The bed was pretty comfortable and easy to transition between couch and bed. We were very happy with our rental and the customer service we received. The ability to move from destination to destination without worrying about setting up and tearing down camp was at each stop made it so much easier to enjoy everything we did on our trip. Not to mention the ability to stay dry and warm (it rained most of the trip and was in the 30's and 40's). I definitely recommend using Escape Campervans for anyone looking to do a roadtrip! Chris...

Great experience, the people at Escape Campervans were beyond sweet and helped my family pick out the best routes, campsites, and food options for our adventure. They were extremely knowledgeable and well resourced. I will definitely be using this service again. Worth every penny!... Read More

Picked up in Vegas had an amazing time. We had the smaller van which worked well for us. Gas milage was great. We would most definitely rent from Escape Campervans again!... Read More

We rented a Big Sur van for a trip to the west coast with our 1 year old baby. Aaron at the Calgary location very kindly came in on his day off to let us look at the van and figure out where our baby could safely sleep. We have been really happy with the van so far on our trip, and everything is working great! The biggest issue has been that the blinds don't block out enough light for a baby to nap in the day, but we have easily fixed that with a few garbage bags over the windows. Camping with a baby is not for the faint of heart, but if you're up for the adventure an Escape camper van is a good option! Overall we have been really happy with the experience, and Aaron will go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need.... 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!
