The Inglewood crew is great. Very friendly, upfront and honest. We rented a Maverick, “surf trip,” for 9 days. Most everything was great. We had 4 (2adults + 2kids) and had plenty of space even without the roof top sleeper. The kitchen set up was perfect for us. Fuel economy we averaged about 17 mpg. Without the rooftop tent it fit in most parking garages and the size of the van fits in a normal parking spot. It does have backup sensors. The van itself was tired; at almost 300,000 miles you could feel lots of play in the steering, a lot of the pop out cup holders were broken, the screws that hold the table to the van floor kept popping out, the front console covers latches were broken causing a lot of the engine heat to come into the van which was rough considering it was 95° almost everyday and the vans AC didn’t work. *No, we didn’t call them right when we realized our AC was not working because we were on a pretty strict itinerary and didn’t want to miss anything so we toughed it out. Yes, we will absolutely rent from them again. If you go into this with an open mind, you’ll love it. If you go into it with a luxurious mind, you’ll be let down.... Read More

Rented a Maverick van for a week to driving and camping through Arizona. The vehicle was clean and sturdy, driving through some bumpy campground roads. Employees were very friendly and answered all our questions with easy drop off.... Read More

Had a great time in the Big Sur for our trip to the Mighty Five! Only recommendation would be to ask for enough plates and cups in the kitchen set. We were shy one set. Otherwise the van was great and we had a fun time!... Read More

We loved our Escape van! The bed was super comfy, and the fridge was solar powered, which made traveling in hot weather with food so nice!... Read More

Me and my wife rented the maverick for a week, that we took down the coast on highway 101 & route 1 to Cali as a birthday trip for her. Was one of the best trip experiences for us yet! The manager was awesome & more than helpful registering us, creating a smooth process that allowed us to get booked & hit the road before we even knew it.... Read More

A lot of fun but a camper van is for younger people very well put together

Steven Schwartz

The staff was pleasant during check-in and check out. We had some small concerns that the van wasn't cleaned very well prior to our pick up and knowing that maintenance service was almost due and having a lot of miles we had small concerns of mechanical dependability. We would use this company again though. Good pricing, and bed was pretty comfy.... Read More

We had the best time in our Escape Campervan! The pick up and drop off process was easy, the communication prior to picking up was effective and we even received a few text messages while on our trip. We stayed at various state parks in Washington including Deception Pass, Pacific Beach and Dosewallips. We did a big loop around the Olympic Peninsula. We added the heat package to have a space heater in the van at night, game changer as we camped at the end of March. Renting a van allowed us to see areas we never would have seen otherwise. HIGHLY recommend planning a trip to disconnect and enjoy some quality time in nature.... Read More

We just finished our first trip in an escape camper van and had a great experience. The vans are older but well maintained and we didn’t experience any mechanical issues. It was also surprisingly more fuel efficient than expected! The bed and kitchen were both very functional and the van was able to get us to some great off grid campsites!... Read More

We had a great experience with our Escape van. The pickup was easy, the staff at the office was super friendly and helpful, the drop off was easy. We ended up having to switch from the Big Sur to the Maverick to extend our trip which I think wasn’t quite as nice. Everything in the van worked which was great but the interior and ride quality I think are better on the Big Sur, worth the upgrade in my opinion. But regardless it worked well for us and the freedom to stop and stay anywhere including free dispersed camping sites was great. Definitely recommend!... Read More

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!

How many people can travel in the camper with me?

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