The Panda is a lovely caravan. Well equipped with utensils, glasses & some pantry supplies. We opted for the set up service & found it all neatly ready & waiting for us with out door eating areas & a handy sunshade from the verandah to block the morning sun. The air con was a nice treat. Communications were spot in & friendly.
We would love to re hire it! Thanks

Hiring this van from Troy and Tash was a fantastic experience for our whole family. They were both very helpful, accomodating and super easy to deal with. The van had everything we needed to make our experience stress free and plenty of room for our family of 5. We will definitely be hiring the panda from you guys again soon. Thanks for everything.

What a great experience!! Troy and Tash were exceptional to deal with. Their communication was brilliant, they are super friendly and they gave good clear instructions for the setup and pack up of the Panda.

The Panda is a lovely van!! It was very clean and tidy and fully equipped meaning it really is an add clothes and food only experience!!

Safety wise, it has its own brake controller, controlled by an phone app, meaning you dont need to spend money on an in cab controller or muck around with a temporary controller. It towed beautifully behind my prado.

I would definitely highly recommend The Panda!!

Troy and Tash were wonderful to deal with and set the caravan and packed it up for us. It was perfect. Such a great van and plenty of room for the 4 of us. Came with everything we could have possibly needed. Fantastic experience. Thanks so much, Tash and Troy.

Would highly recommend 'The Panda' and the great service offered by its owners Troy and Tash. We used the full drop off, setup and pickup service so all we had to do was turn up, unpack and relax! And of course when finished just packed the suitcase and off home with no worry or stress. Had 8 very enjoyable and relaxing days at the Cotton Tree Holiday Park with 3 adults and a 4 yr old who loved the bunk beds. We will certainly be going again later this year. And will definitely be hiring 'The Panda' again and using the full service provided by owners Troy and Tash. Thanks for a great week. Andrew & Karen Holmes

We had a fantastic trip with The Panda. On a 3 hour trip the van was very easy to tow and having the electric brakes fitted to the van meant that we didn't need to have them on our car.
Troy and Tash were so easy to deal with and we found that we'd packed a lot of things that we didn't use because almost everything was already in the van!

We will definitely rent The Panda again!

Troy and Tash were amazing! Very responsive to messages, and we heard back from Tash within an hour of making a booking request. Ours was a very last minute booking and they really went out of their way to help us get what we needed on time. The camper was in excellent condition, clean well appointed and very comfortable. I will definitely use this option again. Thanks guys!

2nd time this van has been our home away from home and it didn’t disappoint. Troy was punctual and fantastic to work with again, meeting us to set up and collect at the end of our adventure.
Thanks again guys and I am sure this won’t be the last time we use The Panda.
See you in 2019 ¿

Tash and Troy were great to deal with.
The van had everything we needed and more for a relaxing weekend away. It was easy to tow and a quick set up to a large van, which gave us plenty of room to sleep all in comfort, with essential pantry items, camp chairs and tables, outdoor matting included and the large fridge worked a treat.
Troy explained everything really simply and ensured the van and mirrors were all secure before heading off. Both Troy and Tash were more than prompt and accommodating from first contact to handing them back the keys upon return. They were easy-going and also flexible with times, for both pick up and drop off, which removed those deadline pressures that generally detract from an "Escape from it all" holiday, giving us time to reflect on our enjoyable break, without being on the clock too much.
All in all, Troy and Tash, along with the Panda, made for a great and easy get away and, I will certainly recommend the Panda to family and friends and hire it again for my next caravan trip.
Thanks Troy and Tash for helping make a great holiday run smoothly.

The Panda was exactly what we needed to make our trip a success and Troy & Tash were wonderful owners. Everything was a breeze and The Panda was our home away from home. My daughters and I were well catered for with comfort and security. Troy & Tash delivered, set up and collected from our location and this made things so easy. I will certainly be recommending Camplify and especially Troy & Tash's Panda to family and friends needing this service. Thanks again guys for your professionalism and helpful personalities.

Well what can I say!
These guys were absolutely fantastic to deal with, I had no issues and everything was top notch.
The van was completely amazing, I loved everything about it. So very easy to set up and easier to pack down. With in 20 mins I was set up and sitting under the awning drink in hand.
Everything was supplied, half the stuff I packed I didn't need. All you need is Food, Beer and clothes :)
I highly recommend this van and Troy and Tash were first class to deal with.
Will definitely be a return customer

As a group of 5 girls using Camplify for the first time we cannot thank Troy and Tash more! The panda was everything and more than we needed. Very roomy, clean and stocked with everything we needed from camp chairs to salsa in the cupboard! We towed the from the pickup location to Ipswich and the supplied electric brakes that use your smartphone where awesome. Tash and Troy where always around with a call or text if we ever had any questions or problems. We recommend the panda to anyone looking an easy holiday with no stress and can’t wait to hire it again!!

I highly recommend Troy, Tash and The Panda! We hired this for a work function and the inclusions were fantastic for all those little bits and pieces you usually always forget. Their communication was perfect and made the transaction as easy as possible.

The Panda was awesome and completely met our needs.
roy and Tash could not have been more helpful, they were very prompt with their communication, friendly and very accommodating when we had last minute dramas. We chose the option of having the Panda set up for us, so can't comment on ease of set up but this was a fabulous service for us. The Panda was clean and well maintained, and they even had a little welcome pack of supplies as we were arriving late in the day, which was very unexpected and lovely!! The cutlery and crockery etc available to use was ample. We would most definitely hire the Panda again and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it to others.
