Rented a Maverick van for a 10 day road trip based out of Vegas. Van was ready when expected, clean, with gas. Staff was friendly and full of tips on how to get the most out of our trip and save money. Van had everything we expected and needed. Slept 2 comfortably. Would highly recommend renting an Escape van for an extended road trip. Also, it's an incredible deal if you're under 25 and other companies charge excessive fees.... Read More

We drove from LA to Seattle, and our only complaint is that we didn’t have enough time! Can’t wait to rent a van from this company again! Hoping to take the kids next time :)... Read More

I took a solo trip to Canada for Spring Break 2020 and had an incredible experience with this company!! Not only did they exceed in customer service but they went above and beyond to accommodate for the colder temperatures that Canada offers. I added on the kitchen, bedding, and electrical kit. When I went to pick up my van they added in another comforter set, and an extra space heater FREE of charge because they wanted to make sure that I was comfortable. My van was called “Bullwinkle” and had a moose painted on the side and two bears on the back. The representative walked me through every aspect of the van and even let me take a video..because let’s face it..I wasn’t going to remember everything. Upon returning my van to them they gave me a lift to the airport instead of me scrambling to get an Uber. I traveled from Calgary>Canmore>Banff>Jasper then made a u-turn and came right back. I booked the van for a whole week and didn’t have any problems! This was my first time renting anything like this and now I’m hearing that they are making new models but with Jeeps, I can’t wait to rent from them again!!... Read More

We plan a Mountain Bike trip from San Francisco to Phoenix with a Big Sur van. The set up was perfect for our needs, the kitchen in the back, allowed us the stop pretty much everywhere we want for a snack. The bed was a bit on the hard side but, we could get good night of sleep. Let me talk to you about the service, those people were amazing, the explanation on how everything works was perfect, no hidden cost when you bring it it back. Over all, we had a nice trip and having an Escape Campervans was a big part of it.... Read More

It was my first time renting an escape camper van. And my first camper van experience ever. My girlfriend and I took the van on a week long trip through California. Palm Springs > San Diego > LA > Pismo Beach > Sequoia > Yosemite > San Fran. The van was excellent in every way and worked perfectly for us. We definitely would recommend it to anyone thinking about taking this kind of adventure. The staff were very nice and laid back. The van was super clean on the inside too! (Side note, I’m 6’4” and I had plenty of room in the Big Sur model.)... Read More

(Translated by Google) Very good service and very functional and clean vehicle. More inclusions in the basic price (mileage, kitchen items and bedding) would however be appreciated (Original) Très bon service et véhicule très fonctionnel et propre. Plus d’inclusions dans le prix de base (kilométrage, articles de cuisine et de literie) seraient toutefois appréciés... 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!

If you’d still prefer to have a bathroom, our 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).
  • 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.
