Camping in our van was so easy! I was nervous to drive a larger vehicle, but had no problem, even on curvy Hwy 1 near Big Sur. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use. Storage wise, we did great -- even with 2 50lb duffle bags full of moving-home-from-college stuff! We did have some problems -- our fuel bottles were only half full, we had to back track 3 hours to have a fuse replaced on the fridge (which was not working), and a piece on the van that was supposed to be secured by 4 straps, only had two. Mid trip, one of the remaining two fell off and we had to secure the whole thing to the bumper with rope. Also the van was on empty when we picked it up, which was somewhat inconvenient. Even with those issues, we will rent again as it's so much easier to camp in the van than in a tent. We really enjoyed our trip!... Read More

The people treated me very well, very friendly. The vans work very amazingly However one complaint, whenever I tried to use a credit card, their machines decline it for some reason. (It was working when paid for gasoline.) Never the less. I highly recommend this business. See you next time... Read More

This was our 4th trip 4 years with Escape, each time exploring a different part of Utah. The design of their vans, equipment, and customer service are excellent. Hopefully they can continue their great service and pricing as they expand across North America.... Read More


Super nice experience with Escape Campervans. We have rent a van for 2 weeks for a roadtrip around California and National Parks. It was full of fun and we had not any issue. Thanks!... Read More

After booking a 7 day trip for $600 total I feel so-so in my experience. The vehicle I received had 300,000 miles on it, a malfunctioning gas gauge(had to guess how much gas to put in vehicle), and dents and scratches throughout. Overall the vehicle drove well and gave no problems mechanically however I wouldn't have booked the vehicle if I knew the overall condition.... Read More

Out trip went to Yosemite and down Highway 1 in California. Despite that we had some illness and our car broke down, it was a great trip! Stuff happens, and Escape Campervans was helpful and we got everything settled so we could enjoy our last part of the trip. Renting through Campervan is quick and easy, and they have a lot of suggestions on their website on where you could travel and etc. The van we rented is small enough to not be a hassle to deal with, but big enough so you can fit all your necessary gear and still that you have a good amount of space. The good part about renting a campervan is that you can go anywhere, and you can find spots that you would never find if you stayed at hotels and etc. It is not clamping, but way better. It is refreshing to camp on the campgrounds, wash dishes and make fires in the woods.... Read More

We are big fans of Escape camper vans, and have rented 3x. This last time was a little frustrating, because we had to wait 55 minutes to return our van. Luckily we had arrived early, or we might have missed our flight out of Phoenix. There should be more than one person at the office handling check in/out.... Read More

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!

Are the campervan transmissions manual or automatic?

We provide automatic transmission campervans. If you have not driven an automatic before, don’t worry as it’s very easy and we will give you a quick lesson before departure.
