NEW! The most fuel- and space-efficient of all of our models, the Santa Cruz was designed with spontaneity, freedom, and ease in mind – allowing you to chase the surf breaks, take detours, and find hidden gems. This latest model is perfect for solo road trippers or couples who don’t need the extra space that the Big Sur or Mavericks offer. Get ready to zip around town, navigate tight turns, and get off the beaten track – without sacrificing any comforts or functionality.
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.
Available in Los Angeles, San Francisco & Las Vegas
Santa Cruz’s innovative layout makes it easy to plop into bed after a day of exploring. The full-time bed set up in the back is easy and functional. The space-saving kitchen in the back of the van includes a 1-burner pullout stove, 3.5-gallon sink & water tank, and dual-powered refrigerator. Store your clothes in the drawers, grab your groceries & hit the road!

well organized check out and return processes at the Vegas location, remember to get an appointment for the checkout and plan to be there for about an hour. Return was less than 15 minutes.The Santa Cruz was the perfect size and setup for a 5-day road trip for 2 people, easy to drive and park. The freezer box worked surprisingly well, even without additional ice.

My experience with escape Campervans was amazing! My boyfriend and I rented the Santa Cruz model for a 10 day National park tour between Arizona and Utah. It was perfect for what we needed. My boyfriend felt like the maverick might’ve been nice for a little more space to get dressed and move around in back of van, but for me the Santa Cruz is all you need. We also had really great weather so there was no reason to be in the van except to eat and get change occasionally if you’re not at a campground or place with bathrooms to change in. Everything in the van worked well and was in good condition. Operating everything was very straightforward. We brought quite a bit of stuff and carried a fair amount of groceries with us in van, but with a little organization and planning everything fit nicely! Customer service was frieendly and welcoming. We had no issues so I can’t speak to that. One thing that was a little rough at times with planning was if you need to call for any reason I always got sent to voicemail. I only tried twice though and the call back or email response time was reasonable. Overall I highly recommend!

Our experience with Escape Campervans was absolutely perfect! The attention given to us was outstanding even since before we rented the van. They answered all of our questions fast and with very nice ways. We went on a road trip with my boyfriend and rented the Santa Cruz van, it is very beautiful and comfortable as well as very well equipped. Everything you need is there; confortable bed, fridge, sink, just everything. We are from Argentina and had to approve the payment when we picked it up, the employee waited for us 45 minutes till our bank send the authorization! And he made us fill that even it was happy to hang out with us. We made 3800 miles in 28 days and we didn’t have a single problem. Vans are in very good shape and beautifully painted by local artist with really cool designs. ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!
