Sleep 2 above the driver's cab and/or change the back from a dinning area into a double bed by piecing together the jigsaw puzzle.

“We arrived to pick the vehicle up at 7.30 to be told that our vehicle was not services or ready, then to be told the mechanic needed to service the vehicle was not in that day, we were offered a 4x4 amarock which considering we were supposed to have the 4 birth mighty double up this did not work , after around 2 hours we were then given a much much older camper than all the others which had many problems with it ”

“Overall we loved the concept of travelling in a campervan. It was really easy and enjoyable. Our initial booking experience was very good Unfortunately we were disappointed with the van hired to us in Darwin as it had travelled 300,000 kms - the road noise was extremely lould when travelling at 100 km , EVERYTHING in the van rattled espacially the main cabin door. Being in the van at 100 km/h was very frustrating as you couldnt hear the radio as the speakers were right up the the back and you had "to shout to speak to others in the van" The main bed ( made from seating area ) was totally sub standard- the timber slats used to make the bed were ill fitting one especially was too small and didnt stay in place. The cushions were very uncomfortable . Overall the bed was diappointing However the linen provided was excellent as was the cleanlieness of the cuttlery and dishes Also hot water did not work at all We were of the impression that we had booked a Mighty Double Up however we were given a Britz Van”

“ Was a well used vehicle with a number of holes in the body work on the roof, rear of the vehicle and side that was covered over with white duck tape that I highlighted at time of pick-up with your check out staff. Her response was that this would not be a problem. Rear bed got wet every night due to seeping through the roof whilst it was raining resulting in having to dry the bedding every morning. ”

“We picked up the Van as expected,it was clean the lady we think the Manager was very good and although very busy in the office we were shown the Van and all was good. That night we drove 5 hours out a great place called We jasper, the mobile phone dose not work out their so site warden let us borrow the phone to ring and say trouble with the Van. The following day a lorry turned up with a upgraded Van on the back.”

“Clean, well equipped and reliable vehicle on the road. We did experience the same electrical problem with beeping, interior overhead lights flashing and it happened 3 separate times so was concerning at the time. It did resolve when we turned on the motor for 15 min.”

“Althought he vehicle was very old and tired we did like the layout and it was clean. The microwave didn't work (no manuals to show how to use either) and the combi grill working it took 4 hours to cook 2 potatoes. The fridge bottle holder rods inside the door were missing (couldn't keep bottles in the door so lack of space) and the cover for the freezer compartment fell off everytime we opened the fridge door. The sink in the shower room was very slow to drain so we didn't use it. ”

“The vehicle was a tired old camper with 235,000 kms on the clock Mechanically it was OK but the body work was very tired. Crude repairs had been done to the body work using woodwork screws, The toilet/bathroom was in very poor condition with crude repairs and broken plastic work We have owned similar types of campers in NZ for some 12 years (bought ex rental fleets) so we know a little about what these vehicles should be like!”

“The first vehicle we hired broke down on the 6th day we had it. The brakes locked on when we stopped after we were alerted that there was a problem in the system when some lights lit up on the dashboard. From the time of breakdown until we could resume our travelling in a replacement vehicle was about 42 hours.”
