Campervans vs RVs: Which is better to rent?

The question of whether to rent a van or RV is different for every person and every trip. When considering renting a conversion van, mini RV, trailer, or full-blown motorhome with all the bells and whistles for your next road trip, there are many advantages to choosing our unique camper rentals vs. RVs.

Escape Campervans offers the best value alternative to traditional RVs without sacrificing comfort. Experience the adventure of the open road with our campervan rentals in the US and Canada.

Save up to $1600* by renting an Escape campervan instead of an RV

*This estimate includes daily rate, standard extras, miles, insurance, gas mileage, and average campsite costs for a 4-person trip compared to the top RV rental company.

  • Do you want to drive through North America’s most iconic cities with no stress?
  • Take off-the-beaten-path detours on a whim?
  • Sleep under the stars with no one else in sight?
  • And save money on campsites and fuel while you’re at it?

A campervan trip may be just the thing for you.

Why Choose Escape

1. Drive anywhere!

People love campervans because of the freedom they offer to get off the beaten path where RVs can’t go. Parking is a breeze, city driving isn’t stressful, and winding mountain roads are no problem!

2. Affordable and transparent pricing

Save up to $1600 by choosing to rent an Escape Campervan vs. an RV. Our rates are competitive with other RV companies, campervan companies, and even hostels & hotels. We have flexible add-on options so you can customize your trip to fit your needs, comfort level, and budget.

3. Artwork

Why have your home on wheels be an advertisement when it can be beautiful artwork? All 600+ of our vans are unique, colorful, and hand-painted by talented local artists in LA. Our designs are family-friendly and eye-catching (in a good way)–you’re sure to make some friends on the road!

4. Fuel efficiency

Spend half as much on gas in a campervan compared to an RV. Our fleet is among the most fuel-efficient in the US. Compared to gas-guzzling RVs, this is going to save you the big bucks in the long run.

5. Space-efficient vehicles

Our spacious campervan interior, large bed, and extra storage space make for a more comfortable experience without sacrificing drivability.
