What sort of vehicle is best for my road trip? Campervan or 4×4?2020-01-21T04:59:06+00:00
There are two main options for travelling on wheels, which are a campervan or a 4×4.
If you plan to travel from Adelaide to do the east coast. You can drive all the way to cairns with a van no worries.
But if you like to make side tours like Fraser Island, Kangaroo Island or through outback tracks then a 4×4 is a safer choice for you.
Also if you are planning to go to WA and NT, then a 4×4 is the best option. Because many national parks there are only accessible by 4×4.

We can install bed systems in many larger 4×4 or non 4×4 models.
The system we usually build in is a fold out system with moving parts.
It will sit in the boot space of the car and moves over the back seat to form the bed plateau. Therefore it requires certain internal dimensions of the car to be able to move freely. Just contact us to find out if this is possible for your car.
Prices for this start from $850
How does it work with vehicle registration/transfer?2020-01-21T05:50:43+00:00
All of the vehicles we sell are registered in South Australia
The registration process is quite simple and we will guide you through this. All you need to do is fill in the transfer form we already have, and take that to one of the registration offices in SA with your drivers license, passport, bank card and proof of address (which can be hotel/hostel address). Then the vehicle is transferred to your name, and you are good to go :-)
Where do I need to look out for when buying a car or campervan?2020-01-21T05:52:37+00:00
It is most important to look at the kilometer reading.
Most vehicles in Australia have a lifespan in between 300000km and 400000km
Therefore we only concentrate on vehicles with around 250000km or less. To offer the best chance on a reliable vehicle.
