Thank you for Hendrix, perfectly fitted out with everything we needed for our few days along the east coast, particularly with the few days of wet weather we encountered. Perfect pullout kitchen setup, lighting in the back for night time cooking, powerpoints throughout, collapsible bed, easy to drive, economical on fuel, bluetooth speaker...everything we needed and more in a stylish van. We had lots of inquiries, and comments on the splashback kitchen! So lovely Erin and James, well done, thank you and you'll be hearing from us again soon. Jacqueline and Jay

The van is really well kitted out with everything we needed for a great 10 day trip. This includes comfy bedding, towels and cooking equipment.The van includes a second battery, charged by solar panels on the roof which means you never have to use a powered site, opening up more options for places to stay. Everything was easy to use, with supporting instructions provided. Check-in was very easy but during the time away there were a few things we realised there were a few things which could have been covered in a bit more detail, such as charging the second battery. Overall though we had a fantastic time and would recommend hiring this van for a short or longer trip.

Erin & James have absolutely nailed the glampervan concept! Right from the start they made booking, picking up and dropping off too easy-the only thing we had to think about was where to actually go!! Hendrix was a sweet little dream for us as we explored Queensland and NSW, we didnt want to give him back!!

Drifters - Hendrix was an absolute dream! The van had everything we could possible need and was extremely easy to set up, and drive. We rented the camper wan for 2 weeks and it exceeded our expectations. Erin and James were wonderful with communicating with us about any questions and were so kind and accommodating. Everything was so clean and having fresh linens and towels, as well as a beach blanket, etc. that we were able to use made life so easy (especially because we were traveling from the US and had limited room in our packs). As we adventured around, we could not help but to notice how much nicer our van was compared to other van-rentals that we saw. We would highly recommend Drifters, and look forward to using the Hendrix van in the future next time we are back in Australia.

Hendrix has everything required for an amazing week or weekend away. Comfortable space, clean and comfy bedding with lots of pillows. All cooking utensils are stored perfectly and even a little freezer that made our morning iced coffees possible! Easy to set up and pack down we had a blast touring around the east coast and Gold Coast hinterland. Erin and James have done an amazing job kitting out this van with everything you need for an epic adventure. Thanks again guys all the best!

We had a wonderful time driving around Noosa in the Drifters Campervan. The van was beautifully laid out and the ammenities were beyond what we expected. We especially enjoyed the small touches i.e the card games and books. Communication with the owners was great (always quick to reply) and we appreciated their local recommendations. Was a memorable experience and will definitely recommend to friends and family. Thanks!

What a trip! We took Hendrix on a 10 night adventure down to Newcastle and back stopping in at a heap of amazing beaches and towns along the way. We spent Christmas at Diamond Head and NYE at Habitat Noosa - it was such a great way to celebrate the holidays! We loved the freedom of being able to stay at so many amazing locations along the way. Hendrix has everything you could ever need for anything from a weekend getaway to a much longer road trip! The bed is super comfy and we loved the interior design and attention to detail! We had a few quiet nights in bed taking in the view but also spent a few nights listening to music on the bluetooth speaker and having a few drinks either on the lounge or under the gazebo. There are so many seating/lounging options! The kitchen is amazing - both aesthetically and functionally and made meal times a highlight! Overall we loved living the vanlife with Hendrix!
Our amazing road trip (Dec 22 - Jan 1): Marcoola - Sandon - Diamond Head - Seal Rocks - Mungo Brush - Grassy Head - Lennox Head - Habitat Noosa - Marcoola.

We found drifters via instagram and the van was every bit as amazing as the photos..... it’s decked out with everything you could need.

It’s super fun.

And the drifters website is full of tips on where to stay..... we used at their recommendation and stayed at all of these beautiful farms just inland from the beach

Our stay in Hendrix was awesome...what a quirky camper Erin and James have decked her out in such a different way to anything we have seen. We had everything we needed for a special weekend..and I even cooked on the stove it was so easy, my husband even made the coffee every morning.. which was just yum and to top it off the decor inside to the bed linen was of the highest quality. Our trip took us to Kenilworth which has the most beautifully green fields with the most healthy cows...we stayed at the Homestead camping ground along the Mary River... through high mountain windey roads with breath taking views of the hinterland to Mt Mee, breakfast at Montville, on our last night we stayed at Lake Coothraba camp ground...dinner at the famous old pub. Thank you to you both for letting us hire your wonderful creation...want a camper now...but in the meantime will have to hire yours again down the track.¿
All the very best to you both.

Erin and James have done an incredible job of making this van so homely and should be proud. Every detail is so well thought out and it truly has everything you could possibly need!

With ample lighting and charging ports, you don’t need to worry about having a powered site. There’s hidden nooks everywhere where you will find chairs and table, a hammock, games, books, and even speakers. The beers from Stone & Wood and free coffees from Padre were a wonderful touch!

We started our trip in Cotton Tree right on the beach and ended in Noosa. We were blessed with beautiful weather and it was truly an unforgettable trip.

If you want to travel in style, this is the van for you! We already have friends asking and we will definitely be back ourselves. Thank you ever so much! :)

My mate Andrea and I had an amazing weekend away in the incredible Hendrix van from Drifters! We stayed at Cotton Tree Caravan Park for our first night and then traveled down to Byron Bay the next day. The van has absolutely everything you need (we stayed on unpowered sites), is stunningly decorated and is super comfy to both drive and sleep in. I would 100% recommend this as a great weekend away with someone you love and will be hiring Hendrix again ASAP.

From very first booking to dropping off the van at the end of our trip, James and Erin were super accommodating. Hendrix is the most beautiful van, and done so incredibly well. They have thought of everything, from linen games and a hammock to utensils, pots and pans, plates and cups, delicious coffee and an aero press. Not to mention we were lucky enough to receive a fridge full of stone and wood. The van is super comfortable and the decor they have chosen is beautiful, there is plenty of lighting for when it gets dark plus beautiful fairy lights give an added ambiance. There's even a table and chairs, beach rug, camping stove and fridge hidden in the storage, as i said they have made wonderful use of a small place.
We headed down to Byron Bay from the Sunshine Coast and we enjoyed every moment of it, slept like a dream and enjoyed living the van life.
Thanks for letting us have a piece of Hendrix for the weekend, we had an absolute ball!! Recommend it to anyone wanting a weekend getaway!

We travelled for one week in Hendrix along the Sunshine Coast, noosa, Hervey Bay and Bundaberg. Erin and James have put a lot of hard work into the van and thought of everything guests could possibly need. Given our flight was late afternoon Erin let us check out as late as possible which was a great help on the day. Since we have been come we have been recommending to all our friends and family, it's difficult to describe how great it is - you have to give it a go!

This van was perfect for a weekend away and included everything from all the necessities like stove, fridge and power to all the little luxuries like amazing linen and fairy lights. It was truly a magical experience waking up in this beauty. Erin and James were also so helpful and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We look forward to another trip with 'Hendrix' :)

We had a great trip round the Sunshine Coast in Hendrix over New Years. Erin and James have thought of everything, there was nothing that we needed that the van didn’t have. The van is really easy to drive and the solar panel on the roof means you can pull up anywhere and not be without power. After experiencing life in Hendrix we will struggle to go back to normal camping!

Hendrix is amazing if you want a beautiful camping experience I highly recommend it. Erin and James have considered absolutely everything right down to an Aero press coffee maker.... it was such a treat and I can't wait until I hire Hendrix again.
