We've got you covered. Find out more about long-term caravan hire here.

Here at Camplify, we’ve been inundated by requests from our members to hire an iconic Jayco Expanda. 

View all the Expander Caravans listed with Camplify here

They are arguably the most popular caravan on the market today. So, what’s all the fuss about these ‘Hybrid’ caravans? And why do people love owning them and hiring them so much? We’ve done our own investigation into the topic, and have uncovered a few reasons as to why we think they’re so popular among Australian caravanners:

  • Australian owned and manufactured since 1975. Australians love a homegrown invention, and thus people associate a high level of trust with the Jayco brand.
  • They’re compact and easy to tow, yet they can still offer the space and storage of traditional style caravans. They allow users to be confined when travelling and expansive when set up - the best of both worlds.
  • They are extremely lightweight, with the smaller Expanda Pop Tops having a tare weight as low as 1370 kg. 
  • They are an ideal upgrade from the old camper trailer that takes too long to set up. 
  • Spoilt for choice. There are 10 different floor plans available. You can also tailor the interior down to very small details.
  • Fresh air and views. The expanding beds at either end give the awesome feeling like you’re sleeping in a tent, yet there are the comforts of a kitchen, lounge and bathroom just metres away.
  • They’re tough. Jayco has also made an ‘Outback’ version available to make it suited for just about all challenges of the Australian terrain.
  • The added benefits of owning a Jayco. Nationwide support from over 100 Australian locations, 24hr roadside assist for 3 years, and 12 month comprehensive warranty.
  • They’re great value. Expandas are relatively cheap to buy and, importantly, they hold their value very well.
  • A true all-rounder. Great for short getaways or long weekends.
There are plenty of great reasons for people to buy or hire a Jayco Expanda. For large families who love camping together, or even grandparents with a few young grandkids, Expandas have plenty of appeal. There is however another massive reason for people to buy a Jayco Expanda; the money you can make from hiring it out to others. As aforementioned, Camplify is inundated with requests to hire an Expanda and, with over 11,000 screened hiring members, the demand for this RV is ever-increasing.
