22 CAMPER VAN RENTAL COMPANIES FOR YOUR US ROAD TRIP
Updated February 2020
Looking to rent a campervan so you can check-off multiple parks in one big road trip without dealing with hotels or setting up a tent every night? Or maybe you’re thinking about #vanlife, but you’re not 100% sure you want to commit fully? Renting a campervan for your next US-based road trip gives you the opportunity to experience van life, get off the beaten path, and have a more spontaneous vacation.
With the increasing popularity of van life, camper van rental companies are popping up across the country offering convenience and comfortable amenities. Plus, depending on where you want to travel, daily rental fees may be a lot cheaper than a hotel room, and you can also save on food since most come with a kitchen sink, cooking equipment, fridge, and stove. Campervan rentals provide an elevated road trip experience with some amenities from home and the freedom of the open road.
Here is an extensive list of camper van rental companies for your US road trip, including options from east to west!
Disclaimer: We haven’t used any of these companies personally but we get this question often so we wanted to offer a round-up of camper van rental companies across the United States.
Trekker Vans Ford Transit Rentals
Rental Locations: San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA
Trekker Vans prides itself on being a bootstrapped, locally-owned and operated business, unlike some of the popular camper van rental companies. The owners are avid outdoors-people, so they’re always happy to help you plan your adventure. All their camper van rentals are Ford Transits equipped with bedding, curtains, cookware, stove, refrigerator, sink with running water, camping chairs and table. The dinette transforms into a queen-size bed that sleeps 2-3 people, and if you need room for more, they’ll add on a rooftop tent. Depending on your party size, you can customize your seating to accommodate 2 or 4 people. Pricing varies by season and duration of the trip, but in the off-season, you can score a camper van rental for around $99/night with a minimum of three nights. During high-season, the prices will be about twice as much. If you’re looking for a San Francisco camper van rental company right near the airport, this is a great choice.
Jucy USA Campervan Rentals
Rental Locations: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Point Roberts WA
Jucy camper van rentals include a fridge, two stoves, and even a kitchen sink!

Jucy rentals start at $22/day, not including mileage fees (you can select from a variety of mileage options including unlimited miles for $25/night). The longer you rent, the lower the rates are. A one or two-nighter will be around $45/day. Jucy RV rentals offer a variety of add ons so you can get everything you need for your trip, including camping gear, sheets, and towels. While this post focuses on rentals in the United States, Jucy campervan rentals are also available in New Zealand and Australia.
Escape Camper Vans
Rental Locations: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Denver, Phoenix, Atlanta, Miami, New York

Rates start at $33/day in the low season but vary depending on the vehicle model, time of year, pick up/drop off location, and the length of your trip (the longer you rent, the lower rates will drop).

Escape Camper Vans are also available in Canada via Vancouver and Calgary.

We love that Native Campervans classifies their rentals as “Biggie”, “Smalls”, and “OG”. Biggie rides 3 and sleeps 2 with all the comforts of an RV. Smalls is smaller and sportier and sits and sleeps two. And last but not least, OG is a regular minivan that can ride 5 and sleep 2 inside (but you can always pitch a tent for extra bodies). 100 free daily miles are included with rentals as are basic insurance, bedding, camp chairs, a table, and cooking essentials. They recently started offsetting the carbon footprint of their vans which is extra cool. So, if you’re seeking a campervan rental near Denver, Salt Lake City, or Las Vegas this is a great choice.
