My friend and I rented an escape van to head to a couple CA national parks and we cannot say enough good things about this rental! Spacious, comfortable, convenient and the employees were super nice to work with. We did buy the pop out chairs and one was broken, so it's worth a double check before you drive away just in case! Would 100% recommend this company and cannot wait to use them again!... Read More

We highly recommend Escape Camper Vans! We picked up our van in Orlando, FL and the staff was upbeat, friendly and knowledgeable; Richard & Sean are a fantastic team. The website shows the Miami Beach location, which we were told is by appointment only, for long term rentals...which Google doesn’t say here ... Read More

Check in process was painful. Only 1 group ahead of me and took 2 hours to get the van (this was with an exact pick up reservation too). The van I had reserved at booking was not available and the person said we have to wait for denver office to assign a new van. They did throw in a free propane tank for all my waiting. Car ran great no problems, just an annoying tire sensor fault message the whole trip. Drop off was very smooth only took a few minutes. They had some more help.... Read More

You get exactly what you're signing up for here. The chat on the site if helpful, as is everyone at the office. Make sure you carefully consider what "extras" you need for your trip, but there are no real tricks here.... Read More

Excellent! Great customer service, van great mileage, had plenty of power, and was in great shape. Why "only" four stars? Maximum miles were a little skimpy, resulting in significant mileage charges for a trip to the state next door. Also the ergonomics of the camper van were not five-star - Good, but not amazingly great. Bottom line: I would use Escape Campervans again in a second.... Read More

My partner and I absolutely loved our experience with Escape overall! They have been so accommodating and ahead of the game when it comes to COVID precautions. We originally booked back in March but had to cancel and they made the cancelling and rebooking process so easy and simple for us. We had one of the older model vans so we knew there would be a few ups and downs with it (solar light went out, a lot of miles on the van and some wear and tear) but honestly we just can't wait to rent again and get back out of the road! I would suggest maybe updating the paint jobs on some of the older vans to be more inclusive and having a comprehensive checklist for your staff to follow at check-in so they don't forget to tell us anything....

We had a good experience with the Escape Company. The van ran and drove well and was pretty clean. THe bedding was nice, however we were given the wrong size sheet. We made it work. The kitchen kit could have used bigger coffee cups but that is getting a little picky on my part. Just take a look at any equipment you rent to make sure it is all in working condition. We did have a broken camp chair and a stove that was finicky. We did not like the set up inside the van as it was a little difficult to move around. Over all everyone we felt with at the company was friendly and helpful. Give them a try if you ever need a camper van... Read More

I must say I was a bit skeptical about driving cross country to spend time with my daughter in California (from New York) and my ten-month old twin granddaughters, but renting from Escape Campervans was the best thing I could have done! Easy transaction, well-equipped, -serviced vehicle, easy to drive without restrictions on where you can park or stop to rest. Will be driving back after the holidays, too! Especially during covid times, this is definitely a safe route to go ... no hotels needed, drive through food, or bring your own to limit human contact. So much beautiful country to see during a time when we need to feel the feels!... Read More

Super easy process, staff at the Las Vegas location were great! Loved the Santa Cruz, very manageable to drive and plenty of room for storage and sleeping.... Read More

We loved our van and had a great experience at the pickup location! Our flight arrived early but they were able to help us get the van earlier than our scheduled time which was very helpful. Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because there were some important aspects of the van's mechanics that weren't explained to us at the dropoff location and we had to call the help line to get a few questions answered....

We had an amazing time renting our Fishtank Mavericks from Escape Campervans. On our trip we saw Valley of Fire, Zion, Bryce Canyon then we ended back near Vegas to see Red Rocks Canyon. Having the van was a huge part of our trip since we didn't have to reserve hotels/campsites and stick to a strict schedule. The weather forced us to make some adjustments so having a standard rental car and hotel would have been an issue. Also renting the Mavericks is over 50% cheaper than any RV rentals we saw between gas & rental fees. We also had plenty of space to store 3 luggage cases and all the food we purchased from the grocery store. My only complaint on the van is converting the table to bed was tedious. We did leave it in bed mode during the whole trip and ate our meals either in the front seat or on the bed. We had a great experience on this trip renting through escape, and we would 100% rent though them again. Perhaps a Yosemite trip is in the horizon.... Read More

How will I get by without a bathroom in the campervan?

While our Big Sur, Mavericks, Jeep Camper, 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!

How many people can travel in the camper with me?

  • 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).
  • Jeep Camper:  Seats up to 5 (designed for 2) and sleeps 2 (rooftop sleeper).

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, standard on Jeep Camper) 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.
