Achtung Camper provides a three year warranty on our campervan and motorhome conversions and pride ourselves on going the extra mile with ongoing after sales assistance, no matter how old your Achtung Camper or who you bought it from. We’ll stay in touch after you drive away and be there for you down the track when you decide you really should have had the projector and move screens installed after all.
We are proud to build our conversion on Volkswagen vehicles – their 5 year unlimited km warranty on their Transporters and Crafters is unbeatable, with a vast network of service centres all around Australia.
And lastly, although you are not thinking about this yet…one day a long, long, long way away when you decide your vanning days are over, we’ll help you by utilising our vast potential-client database and getting the word out that your Achtung Camper is For Sale.
All our campervans and motorhomes come with full volume compliance plate approval certification for your state. We have second stage manufacturer approval so have undertaken rigorous testing and government compliance. Why is this important? Without certified government approval you are driving around uninsured for your conversion/modifications and are liable for any issues an overweight or unsafe conversion causes on the road.
We also undertake quality control and testing when your van is complete to make sure it lives up to our high standards. What’s more, Achtung Camper’s are built by the people who use them – we drive to the supermarket during the week, to kinder every day, around Australia when we can; with our daughter in the back. We KNOW our most precious cargo in the world is safe in an Achtung Camper.CAMPERVAN FAQ’S
