We rented a Maverick van for a ten day road trip around the south west. The van was impeccably clean. The layout requires some Tetris with your gear while transforming to bed mode, but totally got the job done. We camped on nights that were down to ten degrees F, but were comfortable in sleeping bags with the rental blanket over us. The electric heater was nice in those temps for dinner and breakfast time when you are repeatedly opening the doors. You will need to be near a 110v socket to use it as it is not powered by the van. Note you will need your own #2 coffee filters and dish soap and scrubby.... Read More

Quick pick up and drop off. Connor was friendly and helpful. Darkside was an awesome van and made for a great trip. No problems at all. I would definitely rent from here again. Already thinking of ideas for my next trip... Read More

Overall we had a great experience. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. They came in early for our drop off so we could catch our flight home which we really appreciated! My only critique’s are that the pads for the bed aren’t very comfortable and since we flew in from out of state we had to pay extra just to get bedding which is a pretty basic need and should really just be included. Otherwise we had no issues and everything went as expected.... Read More

We had a great trip to the coast and Connor was awesome. He got us geared up quickly and gave us some really good local knowledge for the week. This was our second time renting from Escape and the van we got was in really good condition.... Read More

We really enjoyed our experience with Escape Campervans! They were very flexible! They let us change our drop off location and a day earlier too. We had the Big Sur for just under two weeks! It had everything we needed! We also rented the bedding and kitchen sets. There was a good amount of storage. We drove just over 2k miles. We would definitely rent from them again.... Read More

We rented the Mavericks camper van and were as happy as could be with our new home for a week. Our journey took us from the Escape location in Los Angeles to Leo Carrillo campground for our first evening; then we made our way to Sequoia National Park, saw General Sherman, and camped out at Potwisha campground. From there, we headed over to Death Valley, then to Joshua Tree, and then back to LA. For the course of a week, this van was our home. On the airplane, my girlfriend and I discussed renting a hotel on our last night because maybe we'd be tired of living in the van: we'd play it by ear. We completely kiboshed the hotel plan during our trip, because we were so happy living in, and waking up in, our van. We're from the east coast, so we were used to waking up earlier; this was perfect, because we'd toss the curtains aside, snuggle, and watch the sun begin to rise. I'd get out of the van in the morning to begin cooking, and at the end of the day, I'd be so wiped that my girlfriend would handle cooking dinner. We had the perfect thing going. This beauty of a campervan got us where we needed to be, and was very manageable to drive on some of the crazier mountain roads; it did very well in Sequoia National Park en route to see General Sherman, where there are hairpin turns and switchbacks, left-right-and-center. The "kitchen" (complete with a pump-sink, stove, and, if you add the kitchen kit, plates, bowls, cutlery, spatula, spoon, 2 pots, a frying pan, and a scrubber) was everything we needed it to be. During a dust storm in Death Valley, we visited a restaurant for the first time during our visit because standing outside for 2 seconds was enough to fill your eyes and mouth with desert dust. That was a rough night, but it was only one night, so there was no damage to our wonderful camper van. We miss our van-home, and would absolutely recommend & rent from Escape, again. 5-stars well deserved for a fantastic automobile and wonderful service from the folks at the Escape location in Los Angeles....

We've always had good experiences with Escape, and we've rented from 4 different depots in the past several years. We spent a weekend with Boba (the van) at Deception Pass State Park and had a great time. The van was in excellent condition and provided shelter during an intermittently rainy weekend. Checkout and stocking the van took less than 30 minutes, and check-in took about 10 minutes. Staff was very courteous and friendly on both ends.... Read More

Read about our campervan packing tips.

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 Newport Campers have a toilet, sink, and indoor and outdoor shower.

How many people can travel in the camper with me?

  • Newport 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.
