Boomerang Campers take pride in their 4WD campervans. These vehicles are designed for people who are looking for off-road adventures. Not only do 4WD campervans take on rougher roads, they also provide comfort and safety during your exciting journey. They also have other vehicles if you just want to stay on more familiar roads. They also rent out caravans.

It’s air conditioned and contains bathroom that has a shower and a toilet and kitchen equipment which adds comfort to your travelling. Likewise, it has its own entertainment system with the TV/DVD player and radio so you can always have that extra fun while on a trip. The crafter has become the standard in luxury 2 berth campervans across Australian rental companies.

4WD Campervans

It comes with an external sink and is equipped with an airbag and a fire extinguisher. A handheld shower is present although it doesn’t come with a toilet.

A bond of $3, 500 deposit in the form of paper imprint is given to the company. Your credit card will not be held and you will not be charged unless an incident occurs. If the bond is to be used, all expenses will be taken there and the remaining balance will be refunded to you.

Boomerang Campers may not have a lot of reviews but it is good to note that they offer variations in their vehicle while remaining affordable. Their company is seen as ideal for everyone due to the numerous choices on the vehicles and its features. So whether you’re someone who enjoys luxury or someone who lives on a budget, Boomerang Campers got you covered.

"Value for money"

  • Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We booked Boomerang because they were a lot cheaper than other companies like Britz so were a little worried about what we would find when we arrived to pick up the van. A pleasant surprise, the campervan was in good shape and well equipped and ran like a charm for the 3000 kms we put it through. OK it's not the luxury of a Maui BUT perfectly good and you get what you pay for.
As a bonus, Dan and his wife ( owners) are a delight. Lots of good info about where to go/what to do before we set out and he's a funny guy.
