After growing up on a farm, camping in the bush and exploring the great outdoors with dirt bikes, surfboards and kayaks, Jeremy decided it was time to invest in a van that could accommodate his adventures. Cue the 2014 4x4 Jayco Toy Hauler, which can fit up to three motorbikes at once!
With a FIFO career spanning over 20 years, Jeremy joined Camplify as a simple and convenient way to make the most of his van when he couldn’t enjoy it himself. What started as a clever way to claim his vehicle as a tax break and earn a little extra coin has now become a booming side hustle, bringing in over $10,000 in confirmed bookings so far.
‘I love that it’s making money and not just sitting around… I wouldn’t mind buying another van or two - maybe one dedicated to dune and beach experiences!’
But above all, Jeremy appreciates the ease of hiring out his van through Camplify. Not only does his pride and joy get the use it deserves at the click of a button, but each hirer has been a pleasure to deal with. Plus, Jeremy gets the opportunity to share local knowledge with holidaymakers so that they can experience the very best of Noosa!
‘It feels great to share the weekend with good people.’
And if the rare weekend rolls around with no bookings, he’ll get his mates and motorbikes on board for another exciting escapade, using his van as a base for their racing.
‘My van is a toy hauler so I load it up with motorbikes, mountain bikes, kayaks and surfboards - it can carry a lot of stuff!’
A thrill-seekers dream, this easy-to-tow beast fits pretty much any plaything you could want for an unforgettable outdoor adventure - he’s even had a hirer store a go-kart inside!
That said, its spacious interior also caters to those in need of a more peaceful break - just sit back, relax and enjoy all of its home comforts, from a toilet and shower to a TV and queen bed. In fact, Jeremy, his wife Natasha, and their doggo often bring it on beachfront getaways, whether that’s up to Double Island Point or down to Byron Bay, Ballina and Lennox Head.
But their favourite holiday spot is closer to home. For a truly epic experience, head to Noosa’s Habitat Point, reverse his van into one of the sites and open its back door to create a sort of decking. Then chill out and enjoy the unbeatable lake views! And if you’ve got kids in tow, why not let them use it as a ‘stage’ for some after-dinner entertainment? He’s had a couple of families do it already!
‘You can enjoy an awesome holiday any time of the year, as far as Noosa goes!’

‘Jeremy’s service was second to none! Nothing was a problem and he was super flexible with drop off and pick up times. His communication was quick and accommodating. The caravan is absolutely perfect. It has everything we needed in it and more. The pillow top mattress on the main queen bed was so comfortable that we felt like we experienced the full glamping experience. We will definitely be hiring off of Jeremy again and in courage anyone who is considering this van to just do it. You won’t be disappointed! It’s excellent!’ Natasha
‘Jeremy's Van was awesome! Very clean and comfortable plenty of room for a weekend away with friends or to load up the toys in the back. Bed was super comfortable, fridge was icy cold, had a good sound system and the communication with Jeremy was seamless. He is a great guy that obviously loves getting out and about with some toys and knows what it takes to have a great trip, I would highly recommend booking with Jeremy.’ Corey
‘The most fun we’ve ever had camping. The kids and us had a brilliant time in Jeremy’s awesome van. We will be hiring the van from Jeremy again ASAP. Jeremy was so attentive throughout the whole booking, arrival and departure process. He shared with us everything we needed to know to ensure our holiday was the best. Quite honestly, a top bloke. Thanks buddy.’ Anita
‘The pick up process was super easy, all features of the van were purposely made easy to understand and follow. You only need to bring your food and toys, everything else is provided. Caravan towed easily with no hassle. Thanks again for the great weekend away. 10/10.’ James
