About Koda

The van is a 2013 long wheel base Toyota Hiace with a high top. It’s an ex-rental van but considerably cheaper to rent from me given full comprehensive insurance and 24 hour roadside assist are included in the base price. The van is named after a beautiful white husky that we met at the beach, but the name also has echoes the Kakoda trail and is a musical reference. We have taken Koda on our own campervan adventure and it is ready to roll, can go most places and is mechanically in great shape. Being an ex-rental it’s fully kitted out with a two burner gas stove, Waeco fridge/freezer that chills beer and wine in a flash and a sink with an extendable hose that you can use to shower outside the van. We can include solar for freedom camping and there is a pure sine inverter to charge computers and phones etc. It even powers my guitar amp so musicians can use it to tour. The audio system will automatically pick up your phone when you connect with the cable so you can play your favourite road music and charge your phone at the same time. There’s a rack for a guitar in a solid case and another for a 2.5m surfboard, both inside the roof of the van. There are fly screens on three windows and a top quality fan to keep you comfortable at night. It also has brand new foam mattresses, upholstery and curtains.

Koda is a nice and steady car, powerful for long trips and great fuel consumption. David was very helpful and responsive pre checkin and during our trip. We had a great time travelling up the coast, and there is plenty of space inside the van, including rack space for 2 surfboards! Cooking and setting up the bed is easy and fast. The fan gives great air circulation for sleeping. Outdoor shower to top everything off! Highly recommend Koda.

Koda was fantastic for the 3 nights we had it, could not fault it. We did not use the stove or any of the electrics but it was extremely comfortable to sleep in and would happily use Koda again. David and Hao (van manager) were excellent, both very helpful and informative.

Koda was great. Super spacious, cosy and a great experience all round. Communication with David, and Hao (David's van manager)worked very well. Thanks for having us rent the van. (Just ensure you stay within the km's allowed though, we didn't realise there was a max on the km's until after we returned the van).

David's van was a real pleasure. Mechanically A1 and had all of the accessories and utilities for a few days away. Communication was great and the walk through to discuss the ins and outs of the van prior to departure was much appreciated. Will hire again!

Very comfortable, nice to drive, best nights' sleep on a campsite! David is a great host and fully explained everything and communicated very well throughout. I would definitely rent Koda again!

David made the hiring experience very pleasant and easy. He was flexible around pick up times, provided a detail brief and ha few added elements, like camping chairs and shower feature on tap. Ideal to two people wanted to explore beyond the comforts of campsites.

Great communication with David & Belinda who were both friendly. Koda was wonderful in every aspect. Very clean & excellent facilities. The well placed fan over our heads at night was very welcome in this v hot weather. We would certainly recommend Koda & David to others. Great all round experience
