Campervans for backpackers in OzBackpacker Rentals

Travellers Auto Barn has made quality campervan and stationwagon (Estate Car) rental affordable to all travellers on a budget. Save on accommodation and camp out 1 in 5 nights and you pay for the petrol..if you camp out more it pays for itself!!! Unlike most other companies, Travellers Auto Barn doesn’t take a big cash or credit card bond. They only require a credit card imprint for the insurance excess. They don’t even hit you with an underage surcharge. Drivers 18 and older are welcome!!

HiTop Campervans

Their fleet of quality campervans are the best in the business and comfortable enough to camp in for extended periods of time. You simply wouldn’t rent anything with less facility despite whatever "razzle dazzle" you were being conned on to cover up the fact you were buying something inferior. The HiTop is a private room on wheels. Features include:

  • Toyota Hiace HiTop 5 speed manual with A/C and power steering
  • Seats and sleeps 3
  • Dinette that converts to a double bed
  • Separate Single bed (you don’t have to use it, but not everyone wants a threesome!!!)
  • Electric fridge (not an esky, but a real Fridge)
  • Proper sink for running water
  • A spacious HiTop roof so you can stand up straight in it (unless you are Peter Crouch)
  • Inside Gas cooker - it’s a bit naff to cook outside if its night, cold or raining

Chubby Campers

These funky new additions to their fleet are perfect for attention-seeking couples on an even tighter budget. Brand new in late 2007, the Chubbys were released with cool graphics on the outside and a basic living set up in the interior and have been hugely popular. Get in early to grab one of these!

  • 2007 Mitsubishi Express 5 speed manual with A/C and power steering
  • Seats and sleeps 2
  • Dinette that converts to a double bed
  • Kitchenette area in the rear including a hand-pump sink
  • Canopy/tent attaches to the rear tailgate to provide shade during the day and a cool night breeze


Their stationwagons (that can be rented with camping gear) are big enough to seat 5 people with their backpacks and are simply the best budget option available. At an average price of $40AUD pd, if 4 mates grab some fave tunes and chip in, it will cost you less then the price of a pint each per day.

  • Tough reliable engine that is built for heavy loads and Australian conditions
  • Big - big enough for 2 people to sleep comfortably in the back - big enough to carry 5 persons and their rucksacks
  • Camping gear can be provided ie tent, cooker, tables, chairs, crockery & cutlery

Drivers must be at least 18 years of age and hold a full licence

All vehicles come with unlimited kilometers, insurance, 24 hour roadside assistance, one way options, discounts, maps & guides.
