We had the road trip of our lives in our Escape Camper Van! It couldn't have been better. The van was clean and laid out perfectly. The check in process with the staff in Aurora was easy and they made us feel super comfortable with our van. We had fun telling people we met along the way about our "cool van". We will definitely rent again. So Much Fun! Thanks so much to all of you in Aurora! Safe travels everyone, Chris and Julie Adriansen... Read More

Absolutely fantastic vacation! Can't wait for our next trip

We were on the road for 42 days (6'500 miles) in the North-West and it was a great experience also thanks to Escape Campervans. During our trip we had 1-2 technical issues with the van. For example, we had to change tires mid-way. These issues were dealt with very professionally and in a timely manner. On our return to SF, the new site manager took time to understand our grievances and was interested in our feedback in order to apply lessons learnt and to improve services. For our next trip to the US, we will definitely look into the Escape Campervans options again. Annette & Gilles... Read More

Atlanta!! I. LOVE. ESCAPE CAMPERVANS. I got the Mervericks gem, Angular. The van was in excellent condition, but Reagan made sure to check it over with us for any existing damages before we left. She also showed us everything in the van and how to use it. The bed, sink, refrigerator, and stove made our music festival vacation an absolute breeze. The bed was easy to convert to and comfortable, and the blackout curtains were perfect. The sink was easy to use. Even though it's *not* a freezer, the refrigerator was cold enough to keep my frozen patties a safe temp (and can be adjusted to whatever temp you need). The van was easier to drive than I anticipated (never having driven a vehicle that large before), and gas was easy to fill. The Bluetooth connection to my phone was also super easy to set up so we could play whatever music we wanted. There was a space, a holder, or a compartment for everything. The extras we added were clutch! : We got the camping chairs (were allowed 4 chairs for the two of us in case we had friends to share with). They were really nice quality. Definitely get the bedding set up, too. Sheet fits the bed and the pillows and comforter were warm and comfortable. Again, not cheap stuff! The tent was in good shape, and came with two sleeping pads and two warm sleeping bags. We also got the electric kit, but weren't able to use it. When I asked if they would consider refunding the cost of the kit since it was clearly unopened, they responded kindly and promptly, and issued a credit. **Forgot to say: I emailed with questions a ridiculous amount between reserving this van and picking it up. Reagan answered all of my questions promptly and fully. She even modified the time of my pick up when it was outside of the hours listed on the main website. John got me through the drop-off checklist quickly when I was running late to make a flight. These guys really are awesome. 10/10 for Reagan and John and their Atlanta team. I would definitely do it again!... Read More

We had an amazing time in our rented Maverick campervan from Escape. We traveled from Phoenix to Lost Dutchman State Park and Sedona. Vanessa made our check-in and check-out a breeze, she was very accommodating to our tight flight schedule. I can’t wait to rent one again!... Read More

Amazing experience!! Aaron was super helpful with our van pick up in Calgary. He went above and beyond to help us out as we had a flight delay which caused us to be late. Everything was very well explained and we felt we had all the information to make the right decisions for us regarding insurance/miles etc. Aaron was very personable and great to chat to which made the pick up experience like catching up with a friend. The vans features and all aspects were well explained and demonstrated to us and we had ample time to ask any questions. Such a clean and well appointed van! Very excited to spend the month in our little house on wheels!! Thanks for everything.... Read More

(Translated by Google) Super experience! We loved traveling by van. The van was well equipped, comfortable to sleep, ... but our van had already lived well (+ 220000kms): electric concern at the dashboard, the interior light did not work and the water pump a little capricious. But otherwise very good! (Original) Super expérience ! Nous avons adoré voyager en van. Le van était bien équipé, confortable pour dormir,... mais notre van avait déjà bien vécu (+220000kms) : souci électrique au niveau du tableau de bord, la lampe intérieure ne fonctionnait pas et la pompe a eau un peu capricieuse. Mais sinon très bien !... Read More

My husband and I rented a Santa Cruz van for 3 days while on vacation. We had a great time and loved the convenience of the van! There were no surprise charges and check in/out was super easy and the employees were all helpful and nice. We are already planning our next vacation and which type of van we would like to get!...

These are among the most economical in North America and are easy to drive and park.

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.
