Huey is a gorgeous little car. Erin and James have equipped him with a lot of nice little touches and the quality of the fittings is great. I loved the smart lighting options, the folding bamboo table with inbuilt bottle opener, the awesome hammock with straps you can hang in minutes wherever you have two trees, the fact that both sides of the car have a sliding door to open and, and, and...

Huey's size is his greatest strength and weakness at the same time. Huey drives and behaves like a normal passenger car, comfortable, easy, nimble. He runs on diesel and is very thrifty. We did a whole week on a $50 fuel budget (ok, we were also lazy... but still explored most days)

Things to be aware of: Huey does not have any windows with fly screen you can keep open at night. But there is a very useful fan to keep you fresh if there's mozzies or rain. Sadly it acted up while we had Huey - but James even come out to meet us to fix it.

In good weather Huey is absolutely all you need! Even in light rain the awning is fine. But when the rain comes bucketing down, lying in bed is practically your only option - or just hire a room or tent for the night! We got caught out a couple of days - but to be fair, the rainfalls were unusually heavy.

Storage in Huey is good for the size but obviously you want to preferably travel light and with squishy bags - it's still camping. If you came with two hard shell suitcases - well, that's your own fault ;) You will fundamentally have one roomy drawer (which fit our one 60cm suitcase easily) and a shelf above the driving cabin plus a bit of spare room in the drawer with chairs and table. We had one suitcase together and then storage wasn't a problem.

The kitchen in Huey is great, sensibly equipped and the coffee plunger a definite plus. Even the knife is sharp!

One more tip: you may want to bring your mobile phone holder so you can use your phone for navigation.

Overall, we had a great time with Huey and would certainly recommend Drifters Campervans (aka Erin and James) to everyone!

Drifters Huey Campervan was equipped with all the essentials, was super cosy and comfortable.

Many positive comments and compliments on the fit-out of the van from locals of the towns we visited.

Super comfortable and easy to drive. WE Loved the fan and interior. A much loved home away from home on wheels.

We had an amazing long weekend away in the hinterland in Huey! Very clean, functional and reliable little Caddy. Really thoughtful fitout with all the essentials and some extra comforts to live off grid in style!

Huey exceeded our expectations. It had everything needed to do a trip down the east coast and more. Its amazing on fuel, includes a ventilation fan which makes it relaxing to sleep, great camping and cooking equipment, and various lights to set the mood (my girlfriend loved the fairy lights at night). Erin was easy to communicate with and obviously keeps the vans at the highest of standards.
11/10 will definitely book again!

Huey had everything you needed for a nice experience and getaway. There were no problems sleeping, as the bed was very comfortable. Storage place was also a positive with good use of space inside the campervan.

Perfect! We were camping with Huey in Inskip and it was perfect for our trip. Kitchen worked great and the fan in the ceiling made the nights very comfortable. It is very cheap to drive as it doesnt use a lot of gas. We had no troubles at all. Erin and her man was very helpful at all times and we would be happy to rent a van from them again.

Our Drifters experience in Huey was amazing! The whole process from booking to pick up and communication with Erin&James was seemless and easy. Everything we needed was there and it was wonderful to pull up anywhere and have our full kitchen easy to use! The bed was very comfy and Erin and James have thought of everything...from high class bed linen to quality camping gear. Huey is also a dream to drive and we had such a wonderful time! We cant recommend Drifters enough!

This was the most amazing van we've ever hired!!

Erin & James have thought of everything and their attention to detail made our stay 10/10.

The fridge and fully equipped kitchen meant we could be self-sufficient. Everything was incredibly clean and comfortable.

The van was super easy to drive and park, very modern and also surprisingly affordable for fuel.

We will ABSOLUTELY hire again (and again, and again!)

We had a great time in this van. The attention to detail is amazing, from the USB ports, to the fairy lights to the fan to ensure you have a great sleep. If you want to explore the area in glamping style this is the van for you. Erin and James were great with the communication and easy to interact with. Thanks for a great holiday guys!

Living in Huey for a week will forever go down as one of my favourite highlights from living in Australia! Impeccable organization and cleanliness. Everything you could want in a caravan/glampervan. Cant wait for my next trip!

Huey was the perfect little escape van for the week! Travelled down the east coast in him & he had everything I needed for the journey and more! Erin & James were fantastic to deal with & so accommodating. Cannot rate them highly enough. Ill be back again and going by the amount of people I met on my travels wanting to check Huey out and giving compliments on how amazing it all looked, Im sure others will be keen to take him for a spin & wont be disappointed!
Thanks again Erin & James! See you again Huey!
