The Big Sur Campervan Provides Big Adventure For Up To 5 People
An update to our classic Mavericks model, the Big Sur provides our standard amenities of a kitchen and queen-sized bed with a streamlined design and extra storage space.
All of our campervans for rent are fully-equipped, custom-built, and hand-painted. They’re perfect for long weekend getaways, cross country bucket list road trips, and national park tours. When you compare campervans to RVs, our small campervans provide functional comforts and the flexibility and freedom to get off the beaten path.
Rear bucket seats (no need to collapse to make bed)
Foldaway in-van table + benches
2-burner propane stove
5-gallon water tank + sink
Aux + Bluetooth capabilities
Drawers for extra storage space
Optional rooftop sleeper
Available at all Escape locations
The Big Sur is about 2 feet longer than our Mavericks model, so you can keep the rear bucket seats up when you put the bed down (perfect for families with car seats). Drawers and compartments underneath the back benches provide extra storage and organization.

Easy to book and helpful operations team. The Big Sur is not insulated for extreme cold. However, the office provided ample blankets and a heater system.

Rented the Big Sur, "Peggy", for 5 days and what an amazing experience! She was great on gas, super clean, reliable, easy to drive, and had the space we needed to store our things. We travelled at the end of August and it was a bit chilly waking up in the morning but the bed kit was super warm and comfy. Aaron, the branch manager in Calgary, was super helpful and kind. Don't be afraid to ask him questions. Overall, very enjoyable trip!

I would say a solid 4.5 stars - I chose 5 because there wasn't a halfway option. We just finished a great 7 night trip with a Big Sur Escape Campervan. Picked it up in Hayward - quick and seamless process - then drove down south through Death Valley. The van drove well, was comfortable for our little family of 3 + dog. Love the kitchen build out - the fridge fit a surprisingly large amount of stuff. Bed was pretty comfortable, if I were doing it again I'd bring an extra pad. One side was significantly more comfortable than the other. My only concerns were that we ordered the extra roof sleeper but were given a ladder that didn't fit so we didn't end up using the sleeper - this was refunded quickly and easily so not a huge complaint, just would have liked the option. Other concern was that the van we had did smell a little like someone did smoke in it. I bought some essential oil car diffusers that helped a bit, but it still had the stale cigarette smell a bit. Other than that, great experience, nice van, we'll definitely be back!

We had a great expereince with this compnay and especially the agent in Calgary.... Aaron.Before we arrived, he sent us suggestions for our trip and packing tips. When we arrived Aaron was very thourough in explaining the agreement, then going over the van.We went thru the van with a fine toothed comb and gave us some tips.He left us with some items from previous campers that were valuable and saved us a few dollars.The van was spotless and clean and even had an air freshener. He provided us contact information for emergencies.The Big Sur van was great. Bed was comfortable, fridge worked great, it drove well even on the snow....the tires were new.He was accommadating with our return time (we had a flight time change and he was able to help us, as no one had our van rented directly behind us).We loved the van, the Big Sur had the space, and were really impressed with Aarons commitment to make sure our trip was great.Highly recommend! We will be back!
