We drove Riva, who we nicknamed the desert dream machine. The van was great! Pickup and drop-off was very easy and quick, and prices were very transparent. Three of us drove around through Death Valley and Joshua Tree national parks and it was wonderful having everything we needed at all times in the van, which also fit into every parking space, while also being very spacious. Unfolding the bed each night and folding back up to drive was pretty easy. The little fridge fit everything we needed, but I'd recommend packing your own sleeping bags and cooking utensils if you can, just to save money. We ended up only using the pan out of the kitchen kit. Can't wait until the next vacation and road trip!... Read More

An awesome experience for anyone looking to escape from their normal lives for a bit! Stayed in the Van for two weeks straight in a variety of climates and had no complaints. They provide you with the basic needs of travel/adventure, then you get to create all the memories that come with it. Would use Escape again in the future!!... Read More

Our trip with Escape was great. The van was perfect for 2 people and carted us around Arizona and Utah. The people at the office were polite and professional. We highly recommend them!... Read More

Escape Campervans was everything we ever dreamed of. Our van “Penelope” was fully loaded & made our trip memorable. The 9 day adventure from Phoenix AZ to Las Vegas was only possible because of Escape Campervans. We are already planning our next trip with them. Check them out, they’re everything you need for your next adventure!... Read More

Laura from the Seattle location was wonderful!! The Maverick I rented, a couple minor issues aside, was absolutely perfect for our camping trip in low 20’s, high teens temperatures.... Read More

Great rental for camping! Worked well with our trip which included campgrounds with additional amenities.... Read More


It was our first experience with van camping and Escape Campervans made it easy! The LA location was easy to pick up from and staff were helpful and followed COVID protocols. Although it's not a fancy custom van, our rental (Maverick) had plenty of room, the main cabin converted into a queen-sized bed and was equipped with sink/grill etc. The van was pretty easy to drive and even had an audio system that allowed us to plug in via USB. Over a week's time, we drove 1300 miles and visited 3 national parks. Would definitely recommend. Happy travels!... Read More

We had a great 6 day trip up the Northern California coast. We (my wife, our 3.5 year old daughter and our dog) rented a maverick van which was certainly cozy but worked out fine. Being able to cook and do dishes in the back was great. It was nice to be able to convert the seating area to a table as well—we had a couple of nice lunches with great views of the pacific. I would definitely recommend doing this.... Read More

The Santa Cruz was very reliable and functional vehicle to spend a week in. Easy to drive, big windshield to see the views, plenty of storage for 2 people, and a smooth ride were a few of the highlights. We were glad we brought an extra blanket. The winter bedding upgrade seems a little excessive and the summer bedding was not enough and did not come with a sheet. The van itself kept us pretty warm overnight when the temperature dropped. Also, I wish I would have brought my own Coleman stove. The one in the van only has one burner, no wind guards, and seemed like it leaked propane at times because we went through it too quickly. Check in and out was easy and efficient. If I was going for longer than a week I would definitely upgrade to a maverick or have something with 4wd. We almost rented the Jeep, but decided on this once when we saw how cold it was going to be overnight and we didn’t want to be in a tent. I did a lot of research before booking and after our experience I would still recommend this company as one of the best and something everyone should experience for a week!... Read More

Campervanning is a wonderful experience! Renting from Escape Campervans in Phoenix was outstanding. Katia pleasantly answered our questions the day we dropped in to scope things out in-person prior to renting (Surprise! LOL). The pickup was efficient. We had completed the express checkin using the link in the reservation confirmation email. Katia and a trainee did a van walk-around to document dings and show us features. Take the time you need to ask how things work. The return was also efficient and surprisingly quick. Our trip was 8 days/1400 miles to Zion, Bryce Canyon, and a few other places. We camped in a state park, a national park, a Walmart parking lot, and a national forest dispersed area. We loved the flexibility the campervan provided to be on the move to another destination or stay put. The rooftop tent was sensational and comfy. Be sure to heed advice on packing tips and info from travelers on the website. Thanks to the “Guest Blog: 51 Van Life Tips to Make the Most of Your Escape” we were organized, properly equipped, and relaxed. We are already envisioning our next Escape Campervan excursion!...

Very easy rental. The van was great. It had everything we needed for a long road trip. The staff was great from the beginning to the end... Read More

I would say the Escape campervan was everything we needed—no frills. We slept in it 7 nights which may have been too many nights considering the comfort of the bed. By the end of the week my back was aching. The van did allow us to see many beautiful sites in Arizona and Utah. We would consider again but need to take into account the sleeping comfort first....

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!
