We rented from these guys twice, few years ago.It was reasonable price, really fair company, with no hidden fees. little pricey now i think would of use more often if would be bit cheaper and not just for deals for 3-4-5 weeks.Even for shorter breaks...but altogether was good experience...

Had an amazing time in NZ driving around one of the Epic Vans. Pickup and drop off was easy and the van worked exactly as promised. Would definitely use them again next time I'm back in New Zealand... Read More

Escape Campervans in Seattle was absolutely amazing. The pickup and drop-off was made flexible for our trip, and would of been much different without that accommodation. Both staff were absolutely amazing to work with, and they were very accommodating. They pointed out the vehicle with the best treads on the tires since we were heading to the snowy mountains, and were knowledgable about the area. Van ran smooth and was actually really good on gas. About $100 for a 530 mile trip. We went over our miles by 130 and were charged $34, pretty sweet deal! Thank you! Special shout out to the manager, I apologize that I can't remember your name right now but you rock!!... Read More

This was a fantastic way to see the southwest! We picked up our Big Sur van "Dune" in Phoenix and put nearly 1600 miles on it in 8 days of adventure and mind blowing beauty!! This van was able to go everywhere a car could go, slept 4 in the van (our two adult sons had planned to hammock at night, but with temps in Low 20s every night, they opted to sleep in the van with us. It was a bit tight when we were moving around, but once settled, slept the 4 of us comfortably). The kitchen was great! Again, due to temperatures, a bit chilly cooking in the morning, but everything is well organized and accessible, and we ate almost all our meals out of the van. We camped in free places on BLM or forest service land most nights, so this was an incredibly economical way to vacation. The van got surprisingly good mileage and was comfortable and easy to drive. If you're not used to driving big vehicles you need to be aware of how long it is, but we had no issues. Our week went WAY too fast and we miss our sweet home on wheels! We will be doing this again for sure!! Great staff - very friendly and helpful, and the free pantry at Escape is terrific! Thanks Escape for giving us a trip of a lifetime. So many precious memories made!!... Read More

My boyfriend and I loved our Escape Campervan experience! We just went this last weekend throughout Colorado, with low temps in the teens-20's overnight. We were worried about being super cold overnight, but the electric kit with the space heater was wonderful and kept the van toasty! They provided everything we needed, and we loved being able to just wake up and hit the road to our next location without leaving the van if we wanted! The only thing we encountered that was difficult was the water tank freezing, so the faucet wouldn't work for us to clean our dishes easily. But I don't think there is much than could be done about that in the winter months. We had a great time and already thinking about booking again!... Read More

Incredible experience with Escape this week! Came in and out of the Vegas hub and the team there (especially Mack) was incredibly helpful and informative. We had a very comfortable trip to Tahoe, San Francisco, Big Sur, and Sequoia. Rooftop sleeper could not have been more comfortable! Liked it even better than sleeping in the van, which was honestly very pleasant as well. From calling to ask questions to getting tips during pickup, cannot speak highly enough of every person who assisted us—in the Vegas hub and Denver headquarters! Also, if all of that wasn't enough, I had lost my wallet early on in the trip and when we got back, team member Daniel looked all throughout the "hiding spots" in the van including taking the wall off the interior to look in a chamber I thought it may have fallen in. I got my wallet back! Exceptional service and incredible trip. Cannot say enough how great this company is!... Read More

We rented a Maverick Camper van in Phoenix last week. Overall I had a good experience but the refrigerator nor the overhead light off the back never worked. It was pretty cool so it was not a huge issue but would have been nice to have the light while I cooked.... Read More

100% recommend this company! Great customer service, great product. Our van was very clean and organized when we first picked it up and it was in great condition overall. Definitely plan on using them again for future adventures!... Read More

Wir hatten für 28 Tage einen Van gemietet und waren zu 100% zufrieden mit unserem " Rover". Der Service vor, während und bei der Abgabe des Vans war freundlich und easy. Dummerweise hatten wir den Schlüssel im Wagen wo geschlossen, uns würde auch in dieser Situation geholfen!! Wir werde sicherlich wieder über Escape Camervans buchen.... Read More

This a great company, we wanted a van (Maverick) for 9 days and paid the extra $ for the 200 miles per day (would highly recommend if you are planning on driving a lot, miles rack up fast.) The van was spacious for two, with plenty of space for bags and gear. The bed was comfortable and spacious. Getting 4 stars because our van was quite old and therefore worn out inside (seats, stains, etc.) and the van had a lot of miles on it. Great gas mileage (17!) Would highly recommend these vans for your next vacation.... Read More

I loved renting my van from them.. I had an E150 van for 16 years myself, so I was very familiar with driving it.. I was very happy about renting the van, very cool paint job.. I felt the van was not as clean as I expected...and refused the bedding..the second set of bedding I felt was not clean either, so I ended up taking it to the laundry mat...and washing up the van myself.. Stove only had one burner working..I made it work for me, someone not familiar with the stove would had probably not been able to light it at all..! I did love the refrigerator , I really liked how they had the little kitchen set up in the back... I would definitely rent again, but ck everything out before you leave the parking lot..IMPORTANT. .... 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!

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

Who paints your campervans?

We employ a range of talented artists, many of whom have achieved international acclaim. Each artist has his or her own style that adds to our unique fleet. If you are visiting our Los Angeles Escape depot in the winter and spring, you may see our artists in action. Learn more about our artists here.

Can I request a certain van design before pick up?

As campervans are coming in and out of our depots from all over the country every day, it is extremely difficult for us to guarantee a certain van design prior to pick up–especially during the busy summer season. While we cannot reserve certain van designs in advance, you are welcome to mention which style of artwork you prefer when you book, and you can choose from the vans that have been cleaned, serviced, and are ready to go on the lot at pick up.

All artwork is happy, creative and friendly. We do not have political, aggressive, or offensive designs. We will do everything we can to get you in a van you love!
