Cost of Buying a Campervan

The cost of purchasing a campervan in Australia varies based on where you buy it and what's included. On several marketplaces, we've seen them range in price from $3000 to $30,000 for high-end vehicles. Know your budget and make adjustments based on your desires.

What are the Oldest Campervans I Should Buy?

You should acquire the oldest Campervan that meets your aims and maintenance resources. Many 3- to 5-year-old campervans are in great shape and only require routine maintenance. Although many 5- to 10-year-old RVs and travel trailers may require some modification, there may be that one "diamond in the rough" out there that you can "hot rod" with new comforts and features.

Top 7 Used Campervans for Sale in Australia? 

Airstream Interstate 24X - 

The Interstate 24X is a trailer manufacturer's attempt to raise the bar on the camper van. Built on the bones of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, the vehicle offers everything you need to rough it in comfort, much like a lot of the other cars on our list. In its climate-controlled cabin, Airstream has gone to great lengths to optimize room. The largest sleeping area in a Class B Motorhome is simply transformed from a modular dining table that serves as a workstation. A bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen are also available.

Mercedes-Benz Citan Tourer - 

The Citan is its smaller, more urban relative. Despite its smaller frame, it may be transformed into a more compact luxury camper van. The German manufacturer has done the most of the job for you with the new Tourer model. It's a little smaller than some of the other alternatives on the list—its dedicated sleeping section only sleeps two adults, while two more can squeeze in the front seats—but it does include a built-in kitchen.

Jayco Terrain - 

Jayco is well known for its massive travel trailers, but it also makes smaller trailers like Airstream (well, compact enough to fit in a parking space, that is). The latest Terrain model from the American manufacturer, which begins at $192,000, is an adventure van for folks who want to get off the main road. With a turbo-diesel V-6, Koni shocks, a rear stabilizer, and a rear hitch powerful enough to tow an extra trailer if you need more space, it's ideal for off-roading.

Storyteller Overland Beast Mode 4×4 - 

Storyteller Overland's newest model is a genuine adventure vehicle. The Beast Mode 444 is the most feature-packed model yet from the Birmingham, Alabama-based firm, and it was created exclusively for Overlanding (as you may have guessed from the company's name). It's a real 4x4 with a 188 horsepower turbodiesel V-6 engine that can tow an additional 5,000 pounds.

Loef Camper Van - 

Although camper vans are often smaller than full-size campers and trailers, Loef has you covered if you need the most space. The latest premium model from the corporation measures 24 feet from bumper to bumper and stands nine feet tall. That means its large, open cabin has enough space for a full kitchen, bathroom, and entertainment area that changes to a comfortable sleeping nook when the night's celebrations are finished.

Fiat Ducato Base Camper Van - 

Fortunately, the Fiat Ducato should suffice. The van, which starts at $48,000, is an excellent starting point for anybody wishing to create a tiny RV. You can personalize it to include anything you want to take with you on the road, including an entertainment and sleeping room, as well as a kitchen, by choosing from four different wheelbases: 9.8, 11.3, 12.5, and 13.2 feet. There are a variety of powertrain options as well.

Glampervan Promaster MUV - 

Glampervan could be worth a look if you're having trouble finding a van that ticks all of your requirements. The Oakland-based firm can help you design the vehicle of your dreams using the Ram Promaster 136 as a platform, whether your main concern is work or play (or both). The fully outfitted version starts at roughly $80,000 and features a large interior with a full kitchen, plenty of storage, and a couch area that converts to a bed. The van is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 260 ft-lbs of torque.

What to Look for When Buying a Campervan in Australia

Now that you've located a van you want to buy, we recommend setting up a meeting with the owner to examine the vehicle and take it for a test drive. It's also a good idea to hire a mechanic to accompany you to the viewing and inspect the car. If it found out that the vehicle had a costly problem, it would be well worth the money. During a Pre-Purchase Inspection, you may also have a mechanic check at the van (PPI). These can range in price from $50 to $100.

Engine and Exhaust

First and foremost, while the engine is cold, wipe a tissue around the exhaust. The engine may be burning oil if it comes out black.

Request that the engine be started and that the vehicle be left running for at least 10 minutes. This will allow you to listen for engine noises, such as knocks and creeks, as well as any other unusual engine sounds or sensations. Now you may look for any leaks or black gases in the exhaust. While the vehicle is running, look under it for any fluid leaks.

History and Paperwork

It's beneficial to learn about the van's history from the owner. I'm curious as to how long they've owned it. How many owners have there been in the past? Is it in need of any recent repairs? Request that the owner show you the documents outlining the van's history so that you may inspect it. When was the last time the vehicle was serviced?

Inspect the Outer Shell

Take a tour around the vehicle and look for any signs of corrosion. Check around the door frames and windows as well. Is there any damage to the panels, such as dents, scratches, or shattered panels? If you're looking for a pop-top, keep in mind that they are prone to rust, so look around the pop-top as well as the doors and windows.

Check the Tyres

Make careful to inspect all tires for tread depth, since the required minimum is 1.5mm. Placing a ten-cent coin in the tire grooves is the easiest technique to check for this. Tread depth is over the required minimum if the outside band of the coin is concealed.

Open the Bonnet

While you're here, take a peek under the hood for any corrosion and check the oil levels. Look for black, dried clumps inside the oil area. This might indicate that the engine has overheated, causing the oil to burn while the van travels. You'll want to check sure the bonnet isn't leaking with water or oil.

Internal Condition

Examine the van's inside condition. Is it accurate in terms of its age? Examine the upholstery, floor mats, seatbelts, and rearview mirror for any signs of wear and tear. Is the sound system functional and properly installed? After acquiring our vehicle, we discovered that the radio wiring was not correctly installed.

Test Drive

It's now time to take the van for a spin; keep in mind that some older vans will lack power steering. We tested vehicles with and without power steering, and we decided that the power steering was the clear winner! Now when we look back, we're pleased we paid a little more for a van that's a lot simpler to drive.

Take the Van to a Mechanic

Before you spend all of your hard-earned money on something that could break down on you, think twice. We recommend taking it to a mechanic and having them inspect it. This will offer you confidence that you are purchasing a good vehicle. If problems with the vehicle are discovered, you can negotiate a price reduction with the seller to reflect the repair expenses.

Additional Items

Another consideration when purchasing a campervan in Australia is the additional equipment included with the vehicle. In the long term, this might save you a lot of money. Consider the following: a

  • Gas stove with gas fireplace
  • Cutlery and crockery
  • Battery
  • A panel of solar energy
  • Chairs and table
  • Duvets, pillows, and mattresses
