Why Choose Escape

1. Drive anywhere!

Well, almost anywhere. But really, people love campervans vs RVs because of the freedom they give you to get off the beaten paths that larger RVs just can’t handle. Parking is a breeze, city driving isn’t stressful, and winding mountain roads are no problem!

2. No hidden costs

We don’t surprise you by offering a low rate up front just to hit you with additional costs later on. When you rent a camper with Escape, booking is simple, with everything you need to hit the road included in the daily rate.

3. Artwork

Why have your home on wheels be an advertisement when it can be beautiful artwork? All 450+ 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

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. Roomier vehicles

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