The RVgeeks Australia Road Trip
Welcome to our new Australia page, where we’ll be posting videos, links and other resources from our epic road trip to Oz!
Besides sharing our destinations, activities and information about our campervan, we’ll be featuring details about the resources we’ve used to plan our trip.
First and foremost, after researching every available company, we rented our campervan from Maui because they checked off every box on our wishlist: one-way rentals available, fully-self-contained for Free Camping (boondocking), small enough to fit into just about any campsite (they had larger ones available, but we wanted to go small), very new fleet so we wouldn’t be driving something too old, automatic transmission (driving AND shifting on the left?!) and a long list of included features. They’re also part of the largest RV rental company Down Under (THL) and considering the distances we’d be traveling, we decided that the more support we have available the better… just in case.
So far, everything is shaping up great, and we’ll continue to report on our experiences as we go. Please check back here often for regular updates during our trip. And of course once we finish our trip and complete this page, we hope it can serve as an ongoing reference for anyone else interested in RVing Down Under.
