How to buy a campervan in Australia

When it comes to buying a campervan in Australia, most people have a good idea of where to start. However, there are alternative options that many may not be aware of. Let’s explore these options based on different budgets:

For those on a tighter budget, websites like caravancampingsales.com.au and Gumtree.com.au offer well-priced used campervans, whether homemade or professionally built. Another option is purchasing a used van on carsales.com.au and DIY-ing the essential basics. Online resources like Pinterest, Instagram, and Vanlife communities provide DIY ideas and information for campervan conversions. Consider adding curtains, an extra window, a mattress with bedding, VW campervan accessories from just kampers, and storage solutions from Ikea.

If you have a bit more cash to spare but less time, consider buying a pre-made campervan. caravancampingsales.com.au is a great platform to find newer campervans for sale.

For those with both the budget and the time, a fully customized conversion might be the way to go. You can order a new VW T6 through Achtung Camper and personalize it according to your preferences.

Before making any purchase, we recommend spending some time camping in a tent or a campervan to see if it’s truly your preferred style of travel. Camping in a tent provides a similar experience and allows you to gauge your comfort level with outdoor living.
