Myself and my boyfriend hired the Big Sur for 10 days. We picked up the van in Calgary and travelled through Alberta. From start to finish our experience with Escape was brilliant. Aaron at the Calgary branch was so helpful and made our trip all the more enjoyable. The van was spacious and very comfortable. Would recommend to a friend! :)... Read More

Fun way to road trip but watch the mileage. I got the dishes kit, but no soap. It would also be nice to have an awning for the back of van to protect from rain when cooking.... Read More

We went with the Big Sur and got "Goose" who was perfect for our 10 day Rockies road trip. The campervan came loaded with everything that we could have needed including bluetooth audio, tons of storage and the perfect sized kitchen. We went with the kitchen and sleeping kit add ons and they were perfect. Kyle was also super helpful throughout the whole experience. Would highly recommend you try one of their campervans for your next trip!... Read More

We loved our trip in our escape camper van. We rented the Maverick van (smaller/cheaper) and it worked great for us. Though if the price to upgrade to the bigger version isn’t too high I’d probably recommend that as it was tight on space for my wife and I. The bed is a fairly involved process to convert back to the couch set up, so we just left it as a bed most of the time, which reduced space to store our luggage, clothes, gear etc. We found the kitchen rental package worth it, but wouldn’t recommend the bedding package which was very thin and not warm. We ended up going to Walmart and buying way better sheets, blankets, and pillows for the same price as the worn rental. Pick up and drop off we’re both easy and convenient. Overall highly recommend escape campervan for your road trip.... Read More

I have wanted to rent a camper van for years now!!! I decided that I’m only getting older, and it’ll only get harder. Escape Campervans seems like a great choice, as I was going out west. I picked up my man in Seattle, and drove it all the way to San Francisco in seven days. I was a little worried, because when I pick the van up it is definitely an older model. It has nearly 300,000 miles on it!!! BUT, I will say, they must do regular maintenance, because I did not have any issues out of the van the entire trip. The brakes worked great and the tires were great. It was a fun experience, and people like to stop you and talk to you wherever you go. I would like to do this again, although I will say if you’re looking to save money, I’m not sure this comes out much cheaper than a rental car and hotels. But it is definitely an experience worth doing... Read More


The Seattle office of escape Campervans was so great! They were efficient, organized, and super kind. They really go the extra step by having a donation closet for people so you don’t have to throw away things that others may be able to use such as wipes, plastic bags, salt&pepper, etc. Their staff is so friendly and helpful. We loved our experience.... Read More

Our experience with Escape Campervans was amazing!!! Starting with customer service, these guys really take care of their customers. We had flight times that were outside of normal pickup and drop-off times, but they still accommodated us! We benefitted a lot from their closet full of past-renters' gear, and our design was so cool! From Seattle, we hit Olympic, Crater Lake, Redwood, Glacier, and North Cascades, and had a blast. Definitely got some looks while we were on the road. Highly reccomend!... Read More

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Escape Campervans! We picked up our van in Salt Lake City and experienced friendly and helpful service. The employee gave us a tour, taught us how to use everything and answered all of our questions. As far as the van itself, we found it easy to use and plenty spacious. We took a 10 day trip to Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, and there was plenty of room for all of our stuff. We rented a bedding kit, chairs and a kitchen kit from Escape, and both were good. If you are going to be cooking, I would suggest bringing your own sharp knife as there isn’t a good one in the kit. Overall we found it easy to convert the bench seat to the bed each day. We are 5’9” and 5’4” and had plenty of room to change and move around in the van. The van drove smoothly and held up well to our 1200 mile drive. A few notes...the sink and “countertop” in the kitchen are a little tall. My sister who is 5’4” had to stand on something to reach. If you are short it may be worth it to bring a stool. I would also suggest bringing clothespins or clips for the curtains if you are concerned about privacy as the curtains didn’t fully close without gaps. We were so glad we went with a van over an RV. There were several roads and parking lots closed to RVs that we were able to access. Overall we had an amazing experience and would highly recommend Escape Campervans!... Read More

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!

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!
