I picked up the van in Portland and drove to LA. I loved the van design (fishtank!) and got great reactions and smiles everywhere I went. It was a really great introduction to traveling via van, and I highly recommend it!... Read More

Our experience was fantastic! The freedom of having the camper-van allowed us to be really flexible and we found some amazing places to camp along the cascade loop scenic drive! So beautiful! We also really really enjoyed the fact that the facility had set aside an area aside for folks to leave food and other items for use by future escapers. We took full advantage of this feature which reduced the cost and time we had to spend shopping and we felt good knowing that the food we left behind would be used instead of thrown away. It really improved our experience! Reuse!... Read More

The van itself was great! We rented the mavericks and it was perfect for 2 people. We drove it about 1k miles with no issues and loved our trip! It was definitely a good value. I am giving one star because the pick up and drop off procedures were not very smooth, and the customer service at the Jersey City location was lacking. We still would use this company again, but we just want other renters to be mindful that drop off and pick up can be a bit of a headache.... Read More


Our camper van was the perfect vehicle for the trip of all trips! The bed is comfy, The blanket is warm, the fridge keeps everything cold for days, and there’s not one single place we went that we didn’t get a “hey that’s a cool van! “... Read More

Great way to travel! Our 2nd Escape rental for a 2 week trip out west. With rental car prices rising, this was flexible and cost saving. We cooked meals in the decently stocked kitchen And slept well in the fold down bed. Staff in Denver were super knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Will definitely recommend and look forward to our next Adventure-... Read More

The process of booking, pickup, and drop off were all very easy. We loved the van and it was such a fun way to road trip without paying for hotels. We got the kitchen kit and it had all the necessities. We got the bedding kit too and it would’ve been more comfortable if it came with 1 more blanket but it was still really nice. Overall we had a great experience and highly recommend!... Read More

Escape camper van rental was great! Clean, ran well, comfortable and a smooth drive. My only suggestions are to include warmer blankets in the sleeping bedding rentals, we were freezing. Also the office team is a bit unresponsive and a little hard to get a hold of but other than that it was perfect! Will rent again... Read More

Aaron and Kye go above and beyond to ensure you have an amazing experience with Escape Camper and at Calgary. We had a load of fun with the van itself and the customer care/communication was absolutely enjoyable. The car was in great shape, absolutely clean. Kye did a detailed walkthrough with us and answered a bunch of questions we had about the van and Banff in general. Not only am I looking forward to renting an Escape campervan again, I'm also looking forward to meeting the folks at this office again!... Read More

Great experience overall. Some negatives included the van being well used with 315,000 miles. The windshield wipers did not work at all which was not fun in the rain storm that we encountered. Also the biggest issue was it was impossible at times to get the van into drive. The gear shifter was extremely loose and the van would not move into drive. When you are out of phone coverage and the van will not shift into gear, this caused a bit of stress. Many many times my fingers were crossed and I was just hoping with the right touch, it would shift into gear. Overall the campervan concept is pretty cool. Nice to be able to have a place to stay when just taking a road trip with no planned destination.... Read More

Read about our campervan packing tips.

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!

  • 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.

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.
