If your tow vehicle cannot handle the 'ball weight' of the caravan (rear of car sags and/or front lifts), we will provide you with a weight distribution hitch (WDH) at a small extra cost, and show you how to safely use it. Refusal of the WDH may result in the hire being cancelled for the purpose of safety. Having heavy duty rear springs and/or air bags will be a huge advantage and will more than likely remove the need for using the WDH.

Nathan was very much a pleasure to deal with - instructions were clear and nothing was too much trouble. We had a great holiday to the outback with our 3 kids and the van suited perfectly.

Luxury to the max in a caravan!

We certainly enjoyed our weeks stay with our 4yr old and 18m old.

Beds were comfy, caravan was immaculate, easy to use, air conditioning (which we would have sweltered without), decked out with everything we needed and having a little washing machine was just the icing on the cake.

Cannot recommendation highly enough.

Thank you to Nathan & Louise, we hope to see you again soon!

Nathan was great to deal with and his explanation of how everything works when we picked it up allowed us to feel comfortable with the van throughout the trip. We thoroughly recommend hiring this van from Nathan.

Fantastic Van. Self contained and comfortable. Owner a pleasure to deal with.

We did 12,000km with this Van over 50nights. Super comfortable for my wife and two boys and we did not want to hand it back.

WOW !!! Five Star luxury!!! Will definately Hire this van again!
We are not camping people but decided to give our kids an experience they had not had before and Hire a Van. I was blown away with the luxury in this Caravan it was more like a motel room with extras and more....... It was immaculate, clean and EVERYTHING we needed was there, even tissues, hand wash & broom to help keep the floor clean through the week. Nothing was missed.
Having a bad back I was dubious as to how I would wake up each morning but I actually slept better and woke up with no pain at all, the mattress was better than my own bed. Having a toilet and shower was an absolute BONUS through the night and not having to share public amenities well what can I say not having to hold your bladder to run to a toilet block is a priceless addition in itself.
Also having a good size Digital TV was amazing kids were still amused after dark and once they settled I could stay up and watch some shows too.
Nathan "the owner" could not of been more helpful, he took time to show us how everything worked and what to do if we had any trouble and was available to contact if we forgot anything. The app on the phone for the electric brake system was also amazing so we didnt have to have electric brakes fitted to our car just for the tri, this was a major bonus as many other vans had to have this requirement.
I cannot speak more highly of this Caravan and Nathan " the owner" they made our 1st Camping experience one of luxury and ease and we will definately hire this van again it is a "Luxury Motel on Wheels".
