And for those with a heart for adventure, they offer roof racks to keep your gears secured as well as bike racks.

Vehicles

Santa Cruz

Lo and behold, the newest addition to the Escape Campervans fleet. This 2 berth campervan is both space and fuel-efficient, making it a great choice for solo wanderers or couples on a budget. But of course, it still features all comforts of home like a permanent double bed, kitchen, USB outlets, and storage. The pull-out kitchen is geared with a sink, ref, and single burner stove. 

Mavericks

The Escape Mavericks is good for 2 to 3 people and extends up to 4 to 5 because of the rooftop sleeper. The campervan has all the basic camping facilities and a particular specialty—a solar panel to recharge the auxiliary battery. With 2012 average model year and campervan fit-out, it's the oldest unit on offer. Nevertheless, the Mavericks are stocked with a comfy queen size bed including bedding, a foldaway in-van table with benches, a rear kitchen with sink, 2 burner stove, solar-powered fridge, and plenty of storage areas. 

Big Sur

Big Sur is a step-up version of Maverick, now featuring a newer age model and specs. Still, it caters to up to 5 people comfortably through its standard amenities, including a queen-sized bed, rear bucket seats, fold-away seats, refrigerator, stove, sink, and more. Plus, this model got some extra storage space and an optional rooftop sleeper. So, if you want a more spacious family campervan, Big Sur is a great choice. 

Indie Camper

The Indie Camper is not your usual campervan. Well, technically, it's not really a campervan but a truck camper Still, its vibes scream that laid-back campervan aura, especially the cool exterior design. Maximize all the luxuries of this 3 berth unit that now comes with a nicer kitchen and comfier bed. Plus, it has a shower and toilet that make it a suitable option for those who want a more convenient road trip.

If not, you can avail of the company's Supplemental Liability Insurance at an additional of $12.25/day. They also offer an optional Collision Damage Waiver at $10/day or $14/day if including van, tires, and glass.

Reputation

A relatively popular rental company with mostly positive reviews, Escape Campervan is known for its vibrant and catchy vehicle exteriors and nicely equipped interiors. With several branches across the USA and Canada, they give extra convenience to their renters, especially that they do not charge for up to 4 extra drivers. Aside from their competitive rates, they only charge a US$200 deposit upon booking. And because of these awesome features, Escape campervans are in demand, well, not for the fancy travelers but rather for those budget and funky backpackers.

And being in the rental industry for quite some time, they continually make sure to keep abreast with all the changes in the field. For instance, they just added two branches and one new campervan model. This makes them the largest fleet in North America with over 600 vibrant and reliable campervans.
