I'm from Brisbane & currently own a small car. I'm wondering if I should sell the car and buy a campervan for a 3 month trip across the above states, mostly to national parks along the way.
I would continue to use the campervan for weekend trips regularly as I go camping quite a bit.
I'd like to hear other people's experiences with campervans and cars and which is more comfortable / flexible for big trips & small trips?
What a great trip! I would choose 4WD with pop up tents.
The issue with Campervans is that they will not be able to go on a lot of the roads. It depends where you want to drive, are you planning on off-roading?
Also, you may need to have the motor on for aircon - it can get really hot at night with little breeze. almost 8 years ago
You should only travel with a good reliable 4WD. Make sure you carry lots of drinking water & fuel. It may only seem a short trip on a map, but believe me, Australia is a bloody big place. The outback can be very unforgiving to those how are not prepared. almost 8 years agoAnswered by Gt via WorldNomads.com
I would highly recommend renting or buying a campervan! Nothing beats rocking up at a spot with a van, so you don't have to spend ages setting up and packing down. We did it a few years ago and loved every minute. It's a bit more luxury than camping as well, so if you like that then you'll def like a van. We booked through these guys. Depending on where you pick up and drop off, you should be able to get some good deals as well.
