We picked up our van affectionately names “Bones”. Finest our staff member did an excellent job of orienting us to the van and it’s features. He was extremely polite professional and personable. The van was perfect for our 8 day adventure. Highly recommend this company... Read More

I booked the big Sur Campervan for 6 days and it was one of the best experiences. The van was just the right size for 2 people and the kitchenette made for very convenient meals. The lounge area turned into a bed and the bed was large and comfortable. Aaron at the Calgary location was friendly and very helpful. He gave us a list of hikes and locations to chest out since it was our first time in Alberta. Would definitely use this company again.... Read More

This was a lot of fun. We rented the Maverick for 4 nights and done from Las Vegas to Zion NP and "camped" in the van. We cooked on the stove every morning. It was quick to convert it into a bed. The only thing I would recommend (and this may be just my personal preference) would be more hooks and pockets like you may find in a tent. The temperature got down to 45°F at night which allowed us to keep the windows shut and remain very comfortable.... Read More

Our experience with Escape in Aurora was friggin' fantastic. Our aid Alyx was so lovely and welcoming, and took enough time to make sure we were comfortable with operating the van. We were not rushed and had felt comfortable enough to ask questions and get a complete picture of our experience. I can't recommend this staff enough! Truly professional and friendly as hell. Thanks y'all!... Read More

We had a wonderful week exploring the many canyons in Death Valley, Red Rock, Valley of Fire and never had to be concerned about PacMan getting us to the next adventure. It was great having our meals whenever we wanted and a bed to sleep in when we were tired at the end of the day. This is the first time using Escape Caravan but it will not be the last and we will be sharing how much we enjoyed it with others. The team at Las Vegas were friendly, courteous, dealt with our change of schedule with a smile.... Read More

Five stars for Sean! Sean at the NY depot was super helpful! I am booking a Big Sur for a cross country trip and wanted to see it in person to measure space. First of all, it is a great size--big yet not scary big. Sean showed me the features and how to move and secure items inside. Very friendly and nice. He told me to let him know how else he could help when I was ready to go. Thanks Sean! October Addendum. I haven’t yet set off on my cross country drive but it’s close now, so went again to measure the Big Sur with actual items. Sean again was so friendly and super helpful, patiently answering questions. Found out one pet crate was too large, so exchanging it for one size smaller. The customer service people whenever I phoned with questions were also very helpful. Carey called me back today to let me know about adding another driver. He was also so nice and helpful. Everyone I spoke to has been great! I will post again during and after the trip too.... Read More

Had a great experience with Escape Campervans (Aurora, CO)! Staff were very friendly and personable when we picked up and dropped off. The van itself was comfy for both driving and sleeping. I had hoped the refrigerator would be a little bigger, but it actually held a good amount for its size, much to my pleasant surprise. I would definitely utilize them again if we take another extended road trip!... Read More

I rented the Maverick model out of Vegas for a 10 day vacation. I have been camping my entire life but always in tents or in a smaller RV, never out of a car/van. THIS WAS THE BEST! It was easy to move around in, very spacious in the back, the bed was comfortable, and the kitchen was great! Great gas tanks, the van drove great, solar panels were a plus! I will definitely be renting again here in about 6 months!... Read More

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

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!

If you’d still prefer to have a bathroom, our new Indie Campers have a toilet, sink, and indoor and outdoor shower.

How many people can travel in the camper with me?

  • Indie 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).

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) 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.
