Choosing the Right Campervan or Car

First of all before you even start to look at cars you must decide what vehicle best suits your needs. The main factors are how many people do you regularly plan to have in the car, how many kilometres do you plan to do and how much time do you have? Of course budget is also a key decider! Please find below our  advise when it come to Stationwagons vs Vans vs Campervans vs 4WDs

Stationwagons

Australian made 6 cylinder wagons such as the FORD FALCON’s are cheap, very reliable and most importantly, easy to find parts for in even the remote regions of the country.

Recommended for :

  • People on a tight budget – Wagons are a cheaper option and spare parts are in general cheap & easy to source
  • People who might be travelling in a group or planning to take other travellers along (great way to save on petrol costs)
  • People who don’t mind to sleep in a tent or in the back of a Wagon – just get a air matress, couple of sleeping bags and some pillows!
  • People who prefer automatic vehicles – over 85% are automatic
  • People who are planning to stay a few nights in a hostel

Vans

These vehicles are most suited to couples, more than two persons is too much. It is also recommended that you are travelling at a relaxed pace. You should look for low Kms and preferably nothing older than 1995.

Recommended for :

  • People who have a bit more money to spend – Vans are in generally more expensive then Wagons – same counts for their spare parts
  • People who are travelling in a group of two – either as a couple or as friends.

Campervans – Toyota Hiace

These vehicles are again most suited to couples & who are planning to travel for a very long time. Don’t be scared of high kilometres – Toyota Hiace can run for miles even with 600 000 km on the clock. Age wise we would recommend to look for any Hiaces from the age of 2000 onwards.

Recommended for :

  • People who have the cash for it – this is a life changing experience
  • People who are travelling in a group of two – either as a couple or as friends. It has space for three but you will be travelling together for a very long time…
  • People who prefer a bit more “luxurious” fit-out – proper kitchen featuring sink, fridge, gas stove and some even microwaves.
  • People who are planning to sleep every night in their campervan
  • People who don’t mind to travel manual vans – the majority of vans are manuals
  • People who have lots of time – minimum 6 month!

4WD

4WDs are excellent vehicles for couples or friends with all the reliability of an Aussie ‘six’ – one of the best cars for a trip around Australia. 4WDs are the ultimate way to see the bush, but a fat wallet is essential. Expensive to buy and expensive to run, however the advantages out weight the disadvantages, as many parts of this amazing country are only accessible to a 4WD vehicle.

Recommended for :

  • People who have a fat wallet…..
  • People who are travelling in a group of two – Travellers Autobarn can even build a bet into it. Also suitable for a group of 3 to 5 if you plan to go camping or stay in hostels
  • People who are looking for adrenaline – 4WD is the ultimate Australian experience!
  • People who are well experienced in driving cars – Travellers Autobarn can provide you even with 4WD courses if you a beginner!
  • People who love nature – you will be travelling to some of the most remote areas of Australia
