Editors Review

Go Camper is a family run business, with its head office in Perth, Australia. They also have offices in Broome and Darwin, meaning they cater travelers that want to tour the Western Australia coast, the Pilbara, the Kimberly or explore places in the Northern Territory.

What Go Camper Tell Us

Renting a vehicle from Go Camper is an attraction to any type of traveller― from couples on a budget, solo backpackers, to large groups in need of fancy stay on the road. Say it, and they will provide something for you. The flexibility of the fleet makes them a standout among other competitors. And of course, since they are a family run entity, you will receive a more personalized and hands-on service from real people. They even offer additional perks to their customers such as airport pick-up/ drop-off, discounts at top tourist parks, and unlimited kms.

Fleet

Go Camper’s vehicle selection is actually quite large. Ranging from a 2 berth Econo Camper that has the bare basics through various berth campervans up to luxury motorhomes. In fact, as an independent they have one of the biggest ranges coming out of Perth; econo, new, old, small, medium, large, manual gears, auto and more. All come with awnings too, which is priceless on a hot day giving you shade wherever you are. Their white-based campervans and motorhomes with little advertising cannot give continuous stares from the crowd but rather a more private holiday on wheels. 

Vehicles

Go Eco 2 Berth Kombi

The first on the list, this economical Kombi is great for budget backpackers. Designed with manual transmission, it is still very easy to maneuver and even first-time campervan drivers will love it. The campervan comes with bare basics like air-conditioning, fixed double bed, fridge, storage drawers, and even a list of thoughtful extras such as awning, flyscreens, cutlery, crockery and more. And with an unbeatable fuel economy, you can now enjoy a holiday on the road with lesser budget on accommodation. 

Go 2 Berth VW Hi Top 

The VW T6 campervan is a smooth and compact vehicle that provides spacious interiors because of its extended roof style. It is also suitable for those wanting some private moments through its tinted windows. The well-equipped kitchen includes a two-burner gas stove, 85 L fridge, microwave and all basic features for cooking. The large bed at the rear offers, not just comfort, but also storage for your stuff. For added comfort and freedom, there's a dual battery and an outside shower for you. 

3 Berth Toyota Pop Top 

For couples bringing a kid, then this 3-berth Toyota Hiace with an anchor point in the rear is a nice choice. The pop top roof  provides excellent ventilation even during the summer nights, and the swing out stove can be elevated for an outdoor cooking. All camping essentials like fridge, water pump, cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery are also given for free. With all the fitted facilities, there's still an extra space for your belongings! 

Go VW 2+2 Berth T5 Transporter 

Travel in comfort and style with this modern VW T5 campervan that comes with standard facilities and fancy add-ons like solar panels, outside shower, and more. The campervan provides a fantastic interior layout with the pop top roof giving an extra standing area and ventilation. This is designed for couples travelling with 2 kids as there are 2 anchor points supplied in the rear. The windows are also tinted with fitted fly screens to avoid the prying eyes of the public. 

Go 2 Berth Fiat Explorer

For manual lovers, there's the Fiat Explorer good for 2 people. Well, this vehicle has many striking features like dinette that is convertible into a spacious bed with heaps of underneath storage, drop down table for alfresco dining and dual battery system for extra freedom to roam around. This vehicle may be a bit pricey, but it's a value for money campervan. 

Go 2 Berth Transit Deluxe

Another manual campervan for the 2-berth category, this one's pretty upgraded with some luxury features like shower & toilet, hot & cold pressurized water, flat screen LED TV with DVD player and more. There's a bit more room for roaming around the vehicle and bit more comfort for enjoying a peaceful retreat. Yes, this is a 2 berth vehicle but it has 3 seat belts, meaning you can tag along your friend during your trip. 

Go Motorhome 2 Berth

If you want an automatic motorhome for two with some added frills, then this deluxe motorhome built on Toyota Hilux is an ideal catch. As a fully-equipped vehicle, so many comfortable features are to be enjoyed while witnessing the scenic open roads.There's a permanent double bed with bedding, an air conditioned living area, larger fridge and so much more. The wind out awning makes chilling under the sun more convenient. 

4 Berth Deluxe

The only option in the 4-berth classification, this family motorhome is equipped with all comfort and space for 4 adults. The bigger vehicle dimension offers two double beds― one at the upper forward area and one at the rear. The great thing is your sleeping space does not interfere with your dining quarters and there's still lots of inside storage as well.

6 Berth DeluxeA manual 6-berth motorhome, this luxury motorhome is great for bigger groups and larger families. Expect some bells and whistles with this fully-equipped vehicle offering posh extras that cannot be seen from other vehicles on selection such as tank monitors, voltmeter, safe, and additional 12v battery. Even if its bigger compared to lower berth category vehicles, it is surprisingly easy to operate. And since this is tagged as self-contained, it gives you freedom to camp at most protected national parks and reserves. 

6 Berth Platinum

Bigger and better― the new Platinum sleeps up to six persons and provides top-of-the-line accommodation on wheels. Beautifully designed interiors, the motorhome provides luxury living with all comforts of home. One thing that sets this vehicle apart from the others is the newer base model, not to mention its toilet that comes with an electric flush. The roomy bathroom highlights the separate shower & toilet and vanity area for more privacy and comfort. 

VW Classic Kombi Pop Top Campervan

Aside from budget hitops and compact campervans, they are also running a fixed up VW Kombi hire. So, if you have a thing for the 60s, then this bright, vintage Volkswagen is yet to dwindle. This one may not provide you with all the fancy amenities of a deluxe motorhome, but for sure it gives a classic and charming vibes only VW models can guarantee. 

Insurance

The standard excess liability depends on the age of the youngest driver. For those under 25, the standard excess is $6, 000 and for 25 years above, excess is $5,000― all paid upon pickup of the vehicle. There are two reduction options: paying $20/ day reduces the liability to $2000 (25+) / $3,000 (under 25) and paying $30/ day reduces the liability to $500 (25+) / $1, 500 (under 25). 

Reputation

Go Campers has everything on fleet, and that makes them special among thousands of competitors at large. Though their vehicles aren't that attractive with only simple exteriors, the new to near new vehicles is definitely good enough. And even if this family run entity has an extensive selection of campervans and motorhomes, they still provide personalized service to every renter, which is far different if you book from one of the larger companies. It is much refreshing to find a local company that treats customers in a very accommodating, old fashioned manner. 

Summary

Overall, these guys have a range that will fit every family size, every budget and every kind of Western Australia adventure. The rates may not be the cheapest option, but the company itself is highly recommended.

Have looked into this blog, am astounded that this was allowed to be published without research. None of this is true.
The cheque was received and banked.
Go Camper also has photos and followed through repairing ready for next customer.
Customer was contacted & offered the opportunity to pay the repair invoice, they refused.
This left no alternative but to use the Excess Bond and refund the balance. This we did promptly, no demurrage was charged and vehicle was back on road within a week.

Totally avoid. Worst people I have ever had the displeasure the deal with. Hired a van, nice, clean, great van etc – they look after them. Husband and wife business who at first appear nice but spend their entire time coming up with ways to get more money from you. Slight ding in the side panel from a flying stone – was told on dropping back the van it would cost $50 to fix since tiny ding and no paint damage, so we signed the form. Then two weeks later we get an invoice for $391…..nearly 8 times the price quoted with a made-up story about extra panel work being required. They refuse to enter into any form of negotiation or discussion on the matter and just take the full $2k bond from my bank account without notifying me. They then take an extra week to get the balance of the $2k ($1,609) funds returned to me, stating a cheque was issued and never arrived. The husband called my phone and threatened to physically attack me if I ever called their office again (I have a voice recording of the call). I also have all email trails and photos of the ding on the door – the ding is literally smaller than the tip of a pen and is always normally covered under general wear and tear as being unavoidable. DO NOT USE – HORRIBLE PEOPLE TO DEAL WITH.

"Overbearing contractual obligations"

  • Reviewed

Our van was great but it seems the core business of the business is to extract extra funds once the booking is made, based on their very detailed contract. We were sent a total of 3 invoices: one when booking, another on pick up of vehicle and a final one week after we returned the vehicle! All had extra costs added! This includes $30 for stove fuel and then another $20 if you dont refill the 2 meth bottles! We replaced all fuel and still charged $30! Upon my questioning all I got were terse emails, no phone call, no attempt at resolving things happily. Disappointing.
