Aaron was so friendly and helpful! It was so nice to have his advice as it was our first time in a camper van. The van worked perfectly and made traveling much easier. Thank you so much!... Read More

I can't say enough good things about this company! We had a great experience from start to finish. We rented a Maverick for two weeks. Bed was comfortable, although I do recommend grabbing a eggshell foam topper like some of the other reviews suggest so you don't feel the seams as much. And they hold more than you think! We had no problem with storage, and even the fridge holds a good amount. Tip: if you are bringing a lot of stuff, bring reusable shopping bags to stay organized. For example, we had a bag for our electronics, chargers, etc., then we each had a bag with a couple days' worth of clothes, and another for jackets, sweaters, and other outerwear, plus one for shower/bathroom stuff, and one for dirty clothes. This way you can store your bigger luggage out of the way and don't have to open it every day to grab a change of clothes, plus you won't be scrambling all over looking for stuff you need. By doing this, we were also able to leave the bed down the entire trip and just put the bags in the front at night and throwing them in the back during the day.... Read More

Alquilamos la camper para recorrer Rocky mountains, Grand Tetons y Yellowstone y fue una buena experiencia, ya que resulta muy fácil moverse por los parques con una furgoneta y la facilidad de no tener que acampar. Es muy cómoda y viene equipada con todo lo necesario para dormir y cocinar. Y con un diseño muy divertido!... Read More

Just finished a 10 day trip in the Canadian Rockies driving the Big Sur model and we (my boyfriend and I) loved it!! The Van was clean, well-maintained, and provided us with the perfect method of exploring some of the most beautiful scenery we've ever seen. The check-in process was seamless, and Aaron helped make us feel comfortable with the van as we were first time drivers. We're already planning our next trip with an escape campervan. Highly recommend!!... Read More

Our experience with Escape was wonderful and we will use them again on our next vacation. Aaron and his staff were friendly and helpful and made the checking in and out process painless. They also provided great insight into areas to visit. The van was clean and ready to go when we got there. Highly recommended.... Read More

What an amazing experience and fun hiring an Escape campervan! Definitely the way to go and also such a lovely talking point with strangers! Love the designs too! As for the functionality - all works really well, there could however be a little more storage space as you say the Big Sur fits 5 - it is more like 3 to be comfortable. Also the most versatile van as you can take bikes or have an extra sleeper on the roof. The fridge also worked really well and was on a separate circuit with solar. All in all, so happy!!...

Had a great time taking Bernice through Southern Utah and up to Denver!!

Adam Dello

really cool van and great family trip. The van would be perfect for two people due to lack of storage for your personal belongings and clothing but we had a family of 5 so it was a bit cramped but got the job done for our 2 week vacation. The storage bins under the bed / seats are smaller than they look. We do pack heavy so that was our fault. Other than the storage it was a great experience for us all.... Read More

Read about our packing tips here.

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!
