We had a great time taking Charlie down to Jervis Bay and into the Blue Mountains. Hes well equipped, clean and has plenty of character. Charlies steady pace and layout gives you the chance to really slow down and take in your surroundings, which is exactly what we wanted. Tony was great to deal with and his passion for the van really shines through. Hes thought of everything you need so that you only really have to bring yourself and your food. It was a pleasure to hire Charlie!

Charlie was a very funky camper. We took him to a small music festival and were very comfortable. There was plenty of rom to pack our clothes and gear and Tony has the van kitted our with everything you could need.
The back tent addition made a huge dirrerence to the available space.
Great 80’s fit out in timber too
Loved it

Charlie was everything and more than what we hoped for!

He has a lot of character and is well kitted out with everything you need - sink, fridge, lights, power, storage etc. More importantly, he was very, very clean! We parked him down at Balmoral and Coogee, right on the beach and next to cafes!

The bed was very comfortable and easy to set up. During the day it converts to a cute dinning area large enough for a few visitors to join for a wine too!

Tony was the perfect host - he was very flexible and communication was great.

I would highly recommend Tony and Charlie to anyone looking for a unique weekend activity or even a longer trip away!

Hi, I live in Sydney and love travel and adventure (who doesn't). I bought Charlie, a tough looking Toyota Hiace poptop campervan so that my wife and I could make the most of the weekends. We love trundling in a "general direction" so that we can stumble upon new places. Charlie has so much to give, and so I look forward to sharing him with like minded travellers, and to hear what cool places you've taken Charlie to! Tony
