Awesome campervan company. Staff are great. Vehicles are great value. I took Hyperspace to the Sierra Nevadas, Black Rock City, Ancient Bristlecone forest, Las Vegas, San Diego, Yosemite and returned it to LA. I even got married in it at a drive thru wedding chapel. Was an amazing trip and the vehicle was always reliable.
We had a great experience with Escape. Our van was a Maverick model called, “The Dollhouse.” We christened her “Dolly” and drove her all the to Vancouver Island and back without a hitch. We had the van for 6 weeks and drove it over 5500 miles.We picked her up from the Inglewood branch and our main contact was Chris. He was extremely helpful, friendly and and relaxed.The only maintenance the van required over 6 weeks and thousands of miles was an oil change in Vancouver - which Escape reimbursed us for. The mechanic doing the oil change gave the van a quick diagnostic in case there were any unseen problems and told us that he’d never seen a vehicle with so many miles on it in such good condition.I think choosing one of the bigger branches for your pick-up is a good idea. You definitely want to use one that has mechanics on site and not every depot does.Overall, our experience with Escape was pretty close to perfect.
Best family camping vacation ever! We couldn’t have been happier with escape camper vans. The staff was amazing and the vehicle was perfect! We’ve already started planning our next escape camper van road trip. Thanks so much!
My friend and I had the best time ever in our Escape Van! Booking their Van online from home was super simple and trustful.While arriving at their rental place, we were welcomed by the nicest staff ever and got our van straight away after checking in.We were traveling around California for two weeks and had nothing but a good time in our cool-looking van that brought a true american feeling to us.Camping in their van was comfortable and the van itself was super reliable, knowing that we drove 2000 miles with not a single techn issue. Having their company located in Los Angeles, San Francisco and a couple more places around California gave us an additional feeling of safety.Since we had previous financial surprises with other company, I was happy to have found Escape Campervans as a genuine and transparent company that doesn't surprise you with unforeseen costs.Highly recommend🤟🏼PS: don't forget to check their leftover-lockers if you need equipment or have leftovers yourself.
We rented a van for Burning Man 2023 and it rained. The van was super well appointed and maintained, and we were so comfortable. Escape was amazing about extending our rental and accommodating the extra cleaning. This is a company that truly cares about their customer experience.
We drove from LA to Denver and the Aspen van was great. Good set up for fridge and cooking. Good room for sleeping 2. Bedding kit and kitchen kit fit all our needs.Little bit of an older model so struggled up hills. And no Aux/Bluetooth for the sound system.Overall did the job, was a good trip.
Excellent campervan rental. It was important for us to be able to rent one-way, L.A. to Seattle; Escape was the only rental agency that I found that does that. Our van was quite old (11 years) with, as I recall, 364k miles, but it was in very good condition - just a few of the interior trim pieces were missing. I did notice that the tire pressure of the two front tires was quite far off; handling improved markedly when I corrected this.
We had a wonderful time in our Maverick van, Fantasyland! We had so many compliments on the purple and blue mushroom design! The layout was also so convenient and we loved having the kitchen set up. Having a fridge and being able to cook all our food helped us save money and not have to wait to find food. Also, the bed was surprisingly comfy and we slept through the night every night. Customer service was also very friendly and responsive. 🙂 We can’t wait to go on our next road trip in a Maverick van!
We were going to have to cancel our trip. I googled camper vans near me and found Escape Campervans within 4 hours we picked up the van and we’re on our way on our 4th of July Holiday. Shelby was awesome she was so helpful went we picked up our van and greeted us with a smile! We would definitely recommend using Escape Campervans. Our van was clean, reliable, easy checkout and easy checking. Thank you!! Escape Campervans for giving us an alternative to tent camping or renting a big trailor. Play and plan your next adventure with Escape Campervans!
What a great alternative to tent camping!!! My son and I went on a rolling adventure to start summer and the Fantasyland Camper van was perfect! We hit 3 campsites which would have been horrible if tent camping. The van was comfortable, easy to use, and well stocked. I plan to use Escape again and again!!!
