Loved everything about this trip, so much freedom using these vans!

(Translated by Google) Good Bus and friendly staff. We rented the Maverick for 19 days and drove it 2990 miles. The maverick is the oldest model they rent out so expect damage to users and high mileage. Escape maintenance is good, because we have had no problems with our campervan during our 19 days. + car drives well, Cool drawer works great Bed easy to build You can camp in tent places, bus fits Enough storage space for 2 people. Nice paint job Best way to travel within America. - Only air conditioning while driving - bed is too short in length for Dutch people (they are around 1.84 m themselves) - Bus is suitable for 2 people, more people is used convenience less due to lack of space. (Original) Goede Bus en vriendelijk personeel. We hebben voor 19 dagen de Maverick gehuurd en 2990 mijls mee gereden. De maverick is het oudste model dat ze verhuren dus verwacht gebruikers schade en hoge km stand. Escape onderhoud zijn wagens goed, wij hebben namelijk tijdens onze 19 dagen geen enkele problemen gehad met onze campervan. + Wagen rijd goed, Koellade werkt top Bed makkelijk op te bouwen Je kan op tent plekken camperen , bus past Genoeg opberg ruimte voor 2 personen. Mooie paintjob Beste manier van reizen binnen amerika. - Enkel alleen airco tijdens rijden - bed is qua lengt te kort voor nederlanders( zijn zelf rond 1,84m) - Bus is geschikt voor 2 personen , meer personen wordt het gebruikt gemak minder ivm ruimte gebrek....

(Translated by Google) A very nice experience. The car is great! Too bad however that there is no commercial gesture (like having to pay the USB cigarette lighter 5€ when the total of the reservation is 2300€). (Original) Une très belle expérience. Le car est super ! Dommage cependant qu’il n’y ait aucun geste commercial (comme devoir payé l’allume cigare USB 5€ alors que le total de la réservation est de 2300€).... Read More

Seattle Washington Location: Really great experience with David that helped us return our camper van Sam. This was our second time renting an escape camper van and once again we had a great experience; between using the kitchen in the back of the van to whip up meals, getting between locations and having our bed right there with us after a long day of hiking in beautiful parks. We’ll be renting again next year for sure !... Read More

We had a great trip with Escape Campervan, Aaron and his guys in Calgary took care for everything from the check in until the check out. Even when we had problems they were there to help! We will definitely use their van again!... Read More


Awesome but super high prices


The van itself was good. It's been loved a little rough but overall I was happy with the performance. This probably isn't unique to Escape but these guys really nickle and dime every little thing. Like, here's a van rental for $$... "oh you want to use it?" That's $$$$. I would have given less stars except that the manager Aaron was really awesome. He was incredibly helpful, and knowledgeable. He really went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. I was really pleased with the service we received. Thanks Aaron!... Read More

We had a great experience with Escape Campervans. We picked up our van in Salt Lake City and the staff there was super nice and also gave us a few tips how to organize our stuff in the van. Also the free stuff from other people was very useful. We were on the road for about a month with the Maverick and this van never let us down. It could tackle long drives and dirt road with pot holes with ease. It was also nice to see other people that were on the road with the van and chat with them. At the drop off in Portland everything went also super smooth. As we were on the road and had questions e.g. our insurance policy we just send an email and always got an answer within a few hours. Just be aware that you'll probably drive more than 100 miles per day on average. We were also told by the staff that most people do. So just be aware of that as you think of the cost of the renting.... Read More

(Translated by Google) This summer I had the chance to rent Mavericks twice. A first time in Salt Lake City and a second in San Francisco. Overall I have a very good feeling about the rental! If you are going on a road trip to the USA or Canada, go ahead and go through Escape to rent your van. I spoke about it with a colleague who had had an experience with them + another provider, and she confirmed to me that there was no picture!!! Below is a more detailed feedback => rental in Salt Lake City: warm welcome at check-in!! The van was perfect from A to Z. The mini fridge present in the vans is practical. The dish warmer too. => rental in San Francisco: much colder reception (probably linked to the fact that there are many more activities than in Salt Lake. We had a few hiccups on the vans (we had to change them in progress) but the customer relations service was at the top as well as the rental service that we had (thanks again Kerry for your understanding for the extension of the rental period) If you have the possibility try to have a van a little more Since San Francisco and Los Angeles are the 2 biggest sites, there are some vans that have a lot of km and this can lead to some operational problems if you are like us unlucky. (Original) Cet été j’ai eu la chance de louer 2 fois des Mavericks. Une première fois à Salt Lake City et une seconde à San Francisco. Dans l’ensemble j’ai un très bon ressenti sur la location ! Si vous partez en road trip aux USA ou Canada, foncez et passez par Escape pour la location de votre van. J’en ai parlé avec une collègue qui avait eu une expérience avec eux + un autre prestataire, et elle m’a confirmé qu’il n’y avait pas photo !!! Ci-dessous un retour d’expérience sur plus détaillé => location à Salt Lake City : accueil au top lors du check in !! Le van a été parfait de A à Z. Le mini frigo présent dans les vans est pratique. Le chauffe plat aussi. => location à San Francisco : accueil beaucoup plus froid (sans doute lié au fait qu’il y a beaucoup plus d’activités qu’à Salt Lake. Nous avons eu quelques couacs sur les vans (nous avons dû en changer en cours) mais le service relation client a été au top ainsi que le service location que nous avons eu (merci encore Kerry pour votre compréhension pour l’extension de durée de location). Si vous en avez la possibilité essayez d’avoir un van un peu plus récent. Étant donné que San Francisco et Los Angeles sont les 2 plus gros sites, il y certains vans qui ont beaucoup de km et cela peut amener à quelques soucis de fonctionnement si vous êtes comme nous peu chanceux....

We went for a 10 day road-trip in the Jeep and it was perfect!

We rented a car for the second time and were again very satisfied.We rented the Maverick car for 3 weeks and drove through the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.We visited several National and State parks and a variety of interesting places.There were no problems with the car and we also conquered a number of difficult terrains.The rental service in Seattle was great, the staff was absolutely wonderful and helpful.The next time we go to the USA, we will definitely rent a car from Escape Campervans. There is nothing wrong with it.... Read More

As we drove through the beautiful mountains of Canada, the campervan was the perfect companion. It was great to have the flexibility to drive the van as a mode of transportation, as well as have our "home" with us wherever we went. Aaron was incredibly helpful, with great recommendations and making sure we had everything we needed before heading out. We can't wait to go back!... Read More

  • Convertible bed fit out / “dining room” area with storage space

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!
