Specializing in cheap campervan hire with a limited rental fleet, Devil Campers is the Tasmanian member of one of Australia's large rental vehicle networks.
About Devil Campers
Devil Campers is part of a larger rental network in Australia, including the likes of Tui Campers, Freedom Campers, Budget Campers, Backpacker Sleeper Vans and Captain Billy's 4WD Hire. Based in Tasmania, this campervan rental company provides depot in Hobart and pick-up and return service from Launceston Airport. Their charges, as well as conditions, may vary from time to time, though the rates are still mainly on the budget scale.
Running a limited fleet of basic units, Devil Campers provide only two rental options, both Toyota models. These funky-styled sleepervans and campervans are preferrable for budget-conscious travellers who love loud exterior and cozy interior. Because of the cheaper rate, you cannot expect for an overly luxurious rental hire. Still, you will be greeted with simple yet furnished vehicles equipped with dining table, cutlery, crockery, sound system, camping grounds, and maps. Camping chairs, tables, and awning are not for free. At the start of your hire, the rented vehicle comes with a full tank of fuel and should be returned with same upon return.
The 2002 Toyota Hiace is a 2 berth sleepervan with limited headroom. This unit may be small but it already provides a mini kitchen with cooking essentials, sink, cabinets, onboard water, and a cooler box. Adjacent to the cooking area is a cozy daytime lounge that becomes a double bed for two. There is an ample storage for your equipment underneath the couch. The kitchen countertop is extendable so that you can easily transverse from cooking to eating.

A more spacious unit that can comfortably cater couples, the Hitop model highlights its roomier headroom and cozier interior. The overhead area provides extra light and storage for your stuff. At the back of the driver's seat is the kitchen sink with cabinet. On both sides are two single couches that convert into a large double bed.
Renting a unit from Devil Campers includes a standard liability amounting to $2500 for sleepervans and $2500 for campervans. The liability can be limited to $0 if you pay an additional of $25 per day, by which a credit card imprint will only be required. If you opted not to avail of the insurance reduction option, the bond will be collected during the rental signing via credit card.
Whilst Devil Campers isn't really that popular in the rental industry in Tasmania, they have continued to be a cheaper alternative for couples who want to rent out a basic campervan with basic amenities. The rental rate is one of the competitive aspects of this budget-based company that is part of a large rental network in Australia. But if you're looking for much reliable rental companies coupled with more positive reputation, there are several options to consider.
With two depots and cheaper rates, Devil Campers isn't still on the list of the most admirable campervan hires in Tasmania, plus their limited rental options is another disappointment.
