My wife and I did a loop of the Olympic Peninsula over a weekend in an Escape Camper Van and couldn’t have had a better time. The van worked great for us but I have to highlight Joel at the Seattle branch for his kindness and service. After leaving the lot my wife said, “That guy is the way everyone in customer service should be.” I thoroughly agree. Thanks for the great weekend away! We will be back.... Read More

Great people. Corporate to consumer communication and booking leaves a lot to be desired but the Portland site is well run.... Read More


Super smooth check in and drop off experience. Van was clean and functioned as expected. Thanks Joel and team!... Read More


I have rented 4 times from Escape over the past year and it has always been a pleasure dealing with Kyle and team. The Big Sur vans at the Vancouver branch are spacious, well equipped, and reliable. We have had a lot of fun traveling in their vans and I look forward to the next one. 5 stars all round.... Read More

Had a great time this last week in our Escape Camper Van! We had some plane trouble (Jet Blue gets zero stars!) and almost missed our pick up time but they stayed late to make sure we got our ride. They even hooked us up with an AUX cord because we forgot our CDs at home haha! The girlfriend and I slept comfortably in the van and cooking was a breeze! We picked up the van in Las Vegas and did 2 days in Death Valley and 2 days in Joshua Tree. 10/10 would do again! Thanks guys!!... Read More

The staff we met at the Denver location were great and worked with us when we decided to extend our trip. The van was in great shape and worked as expected with no major issues. Put over 4,000 miles on the van and every day was non stop fun and adventure. Heat and all functions worked as expected, but two wheel drive was obviously not ideal for the snow, so know where you want to go ahead of time. My group had a lot of fun and really made the van our own for the time we had it. Definitely an awesome experience and we plan to rent again at some point in the future! The mileage packages offered at the time of booking were limited to one, meaning we didn't have many options. This was my only real concern. That said, the costs were made very clear and communicated to us before starting, so no surprises with the bill. All in all, we all had a blast and would absolutely recommend to others!... Read More

Great experience with Escape - picked up the van in Denver and it was absolutely spotless and ready to go for me. No issues on my 30-day trip all over the Southwest! The winter sleeping gear came in handy (given it was January) on the road, as did Amy's suggestions for using apps like Campendium and others to look for cheap/free places to camp overnight. I used the canopy on rainy days to cook in the back of the van. The greatest praise I could provide, however, was the van's 17 (!!!) cupholders. Subtly a huge perk. Overall great experience with the staff and company. Would use it again and highly recommend!... Read More

I hired a van from Calgary for the weekend to take my wife to see the northern lights. Aaron was outstanding he answered all the questions we had and explained everything to us. The van was perfect, great bed, very very comfy. Van is set up so you have everything you need for your trip. Aaron even threw in a couple of free extras for us and allowed us to return the van a bit later due to a medical emergency. If I was to have one criticism it would be the charge for extra kms over the allocated daily allowance. I would suggest adding an all inclusive KM's package as that would be a great service for customers. I will be definitely hiring the van again one weekend next month.... Read More

We had a maverick van, and it was so spacious for two people with the larger bed. We drove through Utah and slept in 15 degree weather, but we’re kept warm with the winter bedding that they offer as an add on. It was so fun and easy to cook with the pull out kitchen, while bumping beats in the van. The vehicle was in great shape, and is clearly maintained by the mechanic on site. They are so helpful and friendly at the office, informing me about coupons, and even mailing me something that I left in the van! Will definitely rent again!... Read More

Well managed and friendly staff. We picked up and dropped off quickly. Would absolutely rent again.... Read More

I’ve used their cars twice! First time i was able to get the Jeep Wrangler, so much fun! The car is equipped with everything you need to peace TFO and go off road into adventure. This time in Las Vegas I got a Ford Santa Cruz, very comfortable, big windows so if you are going to the National parks (like we did) the view from inside the car is great! Confortable bed and great space for storage plus the mini fridge and sink! on top of that, the service was exceptional, Las Vegas location was friendly and gave us great recommendations on where to go eat within the city. So far I’ve driven over 3000 miles with Escape, zero problems ✌... 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!
