Incredible experience, had the Santa Cruz very capable and the amenities were great. I have a few ideas that escape should do is a purchasable sun protector for the front of the van and a larger cooler to rent to put in the storage because the fridge is a bit small to put all of my food in. I didn't need to use the gps, google maps was all I needed especially in remote areas. I went to death valley and found out I wasn't suppose to due to the probability of the van breaking down but I am happy to say that the van made it through 118 degree wearher. Overall would rent again.... Read More

Great time with our van, Darkside! Took the van throughout New England and was perfect for our trip. Withstood 1600 miles of driving and great to get up and go from place to place. Will book again.... Read More

We rented a Maverick. The vehicle overall was fine, we drove it and had fun for 1200 miles almost. However, for what we ended up paying, we felt it was a bit overpriced since we are talking about a 2012 van adapted with fridge, sink, camping stove, old and not super comfy interiors. We felt wheels convergence was required (not a safety concern though). However, Las Vegas office is very well managed and we booking, pick-up, drop-off process was easy and pleasant.... Read More

We rented the Big Sur from Aaron at the Calgary rental location. Aaron was wonderful! He's very friendly and accommodating. The van itself ran well and was very comfortable for sleeping. We are both tall people, so having a full queen sized bed was great. The extra storage was handy, and the kitchen off the back works well. Love the paint jobs as well :)... Read More


We rented an Escape Campervan in Denver to venture south to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. Our van was Rocky, one of the Maverick vans, and it was more than adequate and comfy for me and my two pre-teen kids. The bench/table to bed shift was really fast and easy. Everything in the kitchen set up worked perfectly for us. The things we added on were chairs and a kitchen kit (as Denver is not home and we did not fly with a lot of gear with us). My kids thought the colorful van was just magical and they loved it the day I woke up early and drove while they were still asleep, they said it was like time travel! Only downsides you might not be expecting- if you are driving in the mountains, be aware that the van's AC may cut off and on depending on the grade the van is climbing. Additionally, bring your own charging block, as the van does not have a USB or auxiliary plug where you may charge your mobile phone. We can't wait to rent an Escape camper van again for another adventure. Please come build a depot in Texas!... Read More

Great experience with Escape Campervans. We rented out of Calgary and did a loop of the Kootenays in BC. The ability to transition from day to night was simple and intuitive. The kids slept in a roof top sleeper and loved it. I would rent again!... Read More

Our truck was in the shop and we needed a last-minute solution - Escape Campervans to the rescue! The Big Sur has lots of space, a handy kitchenette, and a huge bed (bigger than the queen advertised). Kyle was friendly, helpful, and the COVID procedures he followed made us very comfortable and raised our confidence in the company - if they had thought through sign in procedures this well, it speaks to the care they take in their business generally....

Easy, clean, and well organized. We had a great time!

Travelling during 2020 can be challenging and most of us have decided traveling within our own countries is probably the best bet. My partner and I decided to explore the west coast and drove our car to Calgary to grab our escape campervan! When we got there Aaron made us feel safe explaining all of the safety procedures they put in place, provided us with recommendations for food, water, and places to shower. I truly have never met someone so dedicated to their work and providing such kindness to us to ensure out trip was perfect. It truly was a perfect trip and this van became an amazing home for us. Thank you so much Aaron!... 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! Learn more about our used campervans for sale listed on our website, or contact to inquire about buying a campervan. Sign up for our email list or follow us on social media for the most recent updates.
