Road Trip Ideas from Portland, OR

Oregon Coast

Start your adventure with a drive along the iconic Oregon Coast. Marvel at the jagged cliffs, isolated lighthouses, and expansive beaches.

How much does it cost to rent a camper in Oregan?

The average daily rate for a camper in Oregon is $85-160. You’ll also want to budget for gas and mileage fees. The typical mileage fees charged on camper van rentals are between $0.30-0.40 cents per mile you drive. At the lower end of the price range, you’ll find more compact camper vans that are great when you’re traveling with less than five people. At the higher end, you’ll find larger campers that will fit up to five people much more comfortably.

Rental prices also vary depending on the time of year and the demand. Typically, Oregon gets the most tourists between June and early October, when people come to enjoy the sunniest spots and outdoor activities in the area. Camper prices will likely be higher during those times.

How old do you have to be to rent a camper in Oregan?

You need to be at least 21 years old to rent a camper van in Oregon from Escape Camper Vans. Many other companies in the area require you to be at least 25 years old to rent RVs and campers. The higher age minimums to rent and drive a camper are due to liability and insurance costs. Drivers under 21 have much higher insurance premiums because they’re inexperienced and may tend to make more reckless decisions. Those high premiums and the liability of renting vehicles would make it unprofitable for companies to rent to younger drivers.

If you do find a company that will rent to a driver under 21, you can likely expect a lot of extra fees and potentially have insurance coverage voided. So, it’s best to plan to have a driver who’s at least 21 when you’re renting to ensure your trip is cost-effective.

Our first adventure in Oregon and we couldn’t have been more happy sharing our experience with escape campervans.It was comfortable to drive and sleep in! I would 100% recommend anyone driving along the coast or interior adventures to go with this company. Moriah was exceptional with our check in.We left behind a solid cd that should be passed along to each and every camper. It made our journey more memorable. If you’re reading this and have a trip coming up take the cd with you and enjoy 🙂

Phenomenal service 11/10 recommend. I had and issue with a previous rental company and I found escape and they were able to secure a van for me in 12 hours! The rental process was so easy and they were upfront with all the costs which I appreciate. They have been great helping us find the most bang for our buck in terms of miles and days. The van was clean and well cared for. Additionally in the Portland Oregon location they had a “collection” of paper towels, toliet paper and sunscreen that other had left behind that we could stock up on before the left. AMAZING. The customer service personnel was also outstanding. I can’t wait to use this company again.

Our team rented this baby for an all-woman Hood to Coast Relay team in style! Was ready for us as promised. Very roomy and comfortable! The pop-up “roof tent” provided the needed extra sleep accommodations for us all. Easy to drive/park with great brakes for the downhill trip! Will definitely stick with THIS OPTION over a 12 or 15 passenger van!

Great experience! Easy pick up and drop off which was close to the airport! This location (and possibly others) had left over supplies from previous renters; paper towel, water, some food items, etc. which was super handy.Would recommend and rent again!

This company knows how to provide a simple, affordable way to explore any area of the country you can get to from their hubs! My best friend and I did an Oregon road trip from Portland and had a comfortable and reliable place to rest our heads throughout the trip. The staff at the depot were super friendly and helpful. The van was user friendly and people with moderate camping experience could operate this comfortably! Thanks for the memories!

Smooth experience from booking to pickup to dropoff. The van was perfect for a family of 4, lots of space (both while in-motion and when relaxing inside while the weather is not cooperating). Galley is well-appointed, and sleeping areas (inside the van and the rooftop sleeper) are super comfy. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Will definitely rent again on our next trip out west!

So nice we booked them TWICE! We absolutely LOVE traveling the west coast with an Escape Campervan. The setup is PERFECT. It’s so easy to move around inside the Maverick with two people. There’s plenty of seating with a table, and it’s super easy to convert it to a bed. The back kitchen area is set up for easy access from the back. Having a fridge makes it sooo easy to store food, and the propane stove makes it easy to cook on the fly. Both times we rented, the vans ran FANTASTIC. No issues at all. The locker where you can pick up camp supplies that other travelers have donated is a HUGE help! We love finding treasures in there, and love leaving some for the next person. The mural art on the vans was the biggest draw for us, because we are artists ourselves. It’s luck of the draw which one you get. Our first one was a bit corny but it grew on us. Our second one was the Eyecatcher van and I’ve never been more proud to drive around in something before. The paint job was stunning! Will book every time we go to the west coast!

Great trip! We loved the simplicity throughout the booking and being able to chat with the Escape Campervan team was great. The bed was surprisingly very comfortable, I was impressed. The paintings are all so beautiful, it was really cool to spot other Escape Camper Vans on the road. The roads in the USA are so great to roll on so everything went smoothly with the van. We will definitely book again if our travels bring us back towards a similar type of trip.
