Hiring a motorhome or campervan for an Australian campervan holiday is a great way to explore the great outdoors in an affordable way.
Understanding which campervan or motorhome to rent will go a long way towards making the experience of hiring a campervan easier and your holiday more enjoyable.
For backpackers travelling on a budget and looking to hire a motorhome or campervan that offers a little more space, the Backpacker Nomad is an excellent option. This 2.5 berth campervan is great value for money and can fit a third smaller adult that weighs less than 60 kgs. The 2 berth Backpacker Wanderer is slightly bigger, featuring a slightly extended living area and a toilet and shower.
The Kea 4 berth Deluxe is one of the more well-appointed campervans, a good option for those looking to rent a more spacious campervan. This extremely reliable 4 berth campervan is slightly more expensive to hire, but worth the extra money, coming standard with a shower, toilet, DVD player, and microwave. The 4 berth Britz Voyager is the ideal campervan to hire when travelling as a group of friends, and having no shower or toilet on board means staying over at holiday parks and camping grounds and enjoying the social atmosphere of communal camping.
When travelling as couples the Maui Spirit 2 Ultima is the ideal motorhome to hire, built with a toilet and shower for greater freedom of travel. The Kea Flip Top is the recommended choice for families looking to rent a campervan, able to sleep two adults and two children, with a powerful diesel engine under the hood. This motorhome comes with a handy pop top for easier kitchen access, and the front seats are able to swivel around for an extended seating area. The slightly older but reliable and comfortable Britz Explorer and Britz Frontier are also great campervans to hire for families
