Build a Bed and Kitchen in Your Campervan

Travellers Autobarn has been selling vehicles to backpackers for over 20 years – we are well know for our “Slap N Tickle” fit outs for our vans – meaning your own bed as well as kitchen in your van – it’s your home one wheels :-)

The benefit of having your home on wheels around Australia are:

  • Very comfortable & mostly very spacious
  • You can sleep pretty much anywhere you want – in the city, close to the beach or in the national parks
  • No matter if heavy rains or wind – you will definitely stay try
  • Hungry? Go ahead and cook a meal anywhere in Australia!
  • And yes, always high demand so easy to sell!
  • Mostly very fuel friendly compared to the Stationwagons & 4WDs.
