Last updated: 4th May 2021

Mighty Campers Australia has a total of 9 branches all over Australia, providing a much easier pick-up and drop-off. With the phasing out of their 3 berth Jackpot, they now only have 6 vehicles for rent. On a positive note, you are allowed to bring up to 2 dogs during your road adventure.

Mighty Campers Australia is part of the THL group that also owns Maui, Britz, and Road Bear RV in the US. As the budget/ youth brand, the company is the receiving fleet after Maui and Britz wore out their vehicles after 3 years or so. Though their collection is mostly secondhand vehicles, these are still highly functional, and of course, cheaper. 

About Mighty Campers Australia

As part of the renowned THL group that also owns Maui, Britz, and Road Bear RV in the US, Mighty Campers Australia is undeniably popular. As the budget/youth brand in the family, Mighty want you to see the fun side of life. Encouraging adventure and letting you know they're cheap but flexible is their Modus Operandi. They provide budget travellers with a large range of campervans for rent. Since the company is one of the largest campervan hire companies in the world, it is but fitting for them to have multiple branches. With branches across branches in Cairns, Sydney, Alice Springs, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, Darwin, and Perth, picking up your unit is easier because these locations are mostly in the main centers. 


The way these larger companies work these days is to put the new vehicles into their top brands, in this case, Maui and Britz. And when they get a little worn at about 3 years or 150,000km, they pass them to their budget brands. This is what you can expect from Mighty. They provide a range of campervans, from 2 berths to 6 berths, that allow full upright standing inside. If you did not find the perfect camper for your needs, don't worry because there are other options from their friends at Britz Campervans



Running a 2011 to 2014 model has never been this simple yet worthwhile! This Mighty Highball oozes with space for two. Standing or doing your morning exercise is made easier with the extra headroom. A camper for you and your mate, you can rely on the large rear lounge that alters into a large double bed at night. Though no internal walk-through access from the front seats to the kitchen, you still get to enjoy cooking in the spacious area. Plus, the kitchen is extendable so that you can prepare the dishes while enjoying the scenic surrounding. 


Mighty Deuce campervan review - 2 berth campervan tour - Australia

If you want lots of room and some luxuries like toilet and shower then you have to move up to the Deuce. Based on a 2012- 2014 Mercedes model, this thing is a screaming top end with a whopping 80 ltr fridge, 120ltr water tank, and automatic transmission. Some of the luxuries only work when connected to mains power – like A/C whilst stopped and microwave oven. Now don’t be too fooled by the shower and toilet concept, whilst they exist onboard, having showers every day will mean stopping and filling the water tank every day. If you are going to far-flung parts of Australia, then this is not always available (especially not freely) and emptying a toilet cassette can be quite off-putting if you haven’t done it before. Also, you may have to be in a caravan park to empty the cassette, defeating the purpose of free camping in the first place. (Don’t get me going about free camping and prohibitive council policies!!) Anyway, the Deuce is the largest of the 2 person vehicles, so if you like to spread out on holidays, then this is for you. Recommended as a 2 person camper if you can afford it. 

Deuce Plus 

For those planning to bring a child, this 2+1 campervan suits you well. This is quite a campervan for its size as it offers a seating area at the back of the driver's seat, leaving a smaller rear lounge. Still, your kid is secured while onboard because the unit comes with one child restraint. Aside from the upgrade, this family campervan is newer, mostly built on 2014 - 2016 models. And since this is also from the Deuce category, then you'll be furnished with all features of the other model, including fridge, microwave, and a double gas burner. If you think this one is a little squashy for 3 peeps, you may get the upgrade and go for the Double Up or Double Down.

Double Down

This is the smaller of the Might Campers 4-berth options. Built on a long wheelbase Toyota Hiace it has the essential hi-top roof. This allows for fully upright standing but is also where passengers 3 and 4 sleep. If you are travelling with kids, then this campervan could be for you. This model can take 2 child seats for under 3yo and also 2 booster seats for 3-7yo. The kids or passengers 3 and 4 are strapped into the forward-facing seat along the rear of the camper. Whilst driving the travel noise will make it difficult to communicate from front to back but on the bright side, it if is just bickering kids back there, it could be a major benefit. The campervan internal design is pretty standard if other companies will be running this kind of model if you want to shop around. The kitchen area is directly behind the driver's cabin and the campervan comes with fridge, microwave, internal double gas burner, linen, and bedding.  Overall this a campervan that works well for a group of 4 travelling on a budget. Remember to take soft bags for luggage as there is little room for hard case suitcases.

Double Up 

This is the smaller of the motorhome models for Mighty Campers, but is the larger of the 2-4 berth campervan options. Being a motorhome you are moving into a camper with more room to move around inside and walk through capability from the front. It is standard for any motorhome to come with a microwave, fridge, main cabin air-con, toilet, shower, and grey water tank and this model is no exception. After all a few years ago this model was serving the customers of the higher-priced Britz or Maui brand. There's one bed permanently set up above the driver cabin and the other is converted from the rear dining area―also a very standard setup. This model is great for a family or a bunch of mates.

Big Six 

The Big 6, strangely enough, is the biggest motorhome in the Mighty range. Again a standard kind of configuration and most 6 berth motorhomes have in Australia, it has a permanent bed above the driver cabin and the 2 table seating areas convert to beds. Naturally, shower, toilet, microwave, air-con included and Mighty throw in bedding and linen which is not always the case with its competitors. This is a fully enclosed vehicle so there is a grey water tank as well as the cassette for the toilet to be considered. If you are free camping this is all ok these days as there are more and more free dump points appearing around Australia. It took a while, but it's happening. There's everything you want and need in this motorhome, it's an apartment on wheels, the only problem is parking a 7m long vehicle and I think the rear undercarriage storage is a little small. These are minor issues compared to the comfort you get from this motorhome, though. 


Yes, all Mighty campervans have insurance coverage for damage to the vehicle or to the property of a Third Party. But getting a Liability Reduction Option is much recommended if you do not want to pay a whopping liability deposit of $3,500 for Highball and Double Down or $5,000 for Deuce, Double Up and Big Six, which will be taken from a credit card. The Liability Reduction Option amounts to $30/per day with a maximum charge of $1,450 for Highball and Double Down and 40 /per day with a maximum charge of $1,950 for Deuce, Double Up & Big Six. Accordingly, accident liability is $0 and a simple credit care authority is required upon vehicle collection. 

Not only that, Mighty the Inclusive Pack, which is just an additional of $10 on top of the Liability Reduction Option price so that you also get coverage for single-vehicle rollover, as well as certain add-ons like Wifi GB, picnic tables and chairs, linen exchange, and extra driver fees. Child/booster seat and portable fan heater available upon request. And when you purchase Liability Reduction Option together with Express Return Pack at $150- $250 (depending on the branch of return), you can return the unit with an empty fuel tank and empty gas bottle and avail of the toilet and wastewater emptying service,


Mighty Campers' not only sources out their good reputation from their fleet of 2 to 6 berth campervans, but also from their impressive quality of service. There may be a plethora of companies offering very similar models, but there is something that makes Mighty Campers standout and the others could not kick in. Things like the depots all over the country, a lot of vehicles in the fleet and competitive pricing as well as good opening hours in most cities and the online pre-check in―all of these made Mighty Campers a name in the budget campervan for hire in Australia. However, do remember that the fleet of these good value for money campervans are slightly older, which could be up to 6 years old. Some wear and tear could be visible, so don't expect everything to be totally Schmick and you won't be disappointed. Also, Mighty is a large company with plenty of vehicles. Hence, their other advantage is their availability. However, in peak periods, even these guys can book out, so don't wait too long to book one.


Overall, Mighty Campers is well suited to those who want a nice vehicle that is well designed but is happy to put up with things not being 100% perfect with the vehicle in order to save some money. Really, the only thing that sets it apart from its family members of Britz and Maui is that this is where all their campers go when they start to get tired but still kicking.

"Not cleaned and van doesn’t lock"

  • Reviewed 1 year ago

Would give 0 stars if I could. Been renting a Britz van for a week now. Front passenger door won't lock so we’ve had to cancel all plans that involve us leaving the van unattended. Our battery died and it took them over a half day to get back to us, we ended up paying for roadside assistance ourselves in the meanwhile. Battery has died a few times since, we initially thought it was us but there’s clearly something wrong with this van.
Van wasn't cleaned properly at all either, there's an old dry contact lens in front of the microwave and a tub of tiger balm in the shower. Disgusting!

Overall we had a great time on our road trip. The a/c stopped working and we hit a heat wave so that wasn’t the best but overall we enjoyed the camper and the experience we created with it.

"Avoid at all costs"

  • Reviewed 4 years ago

We hired a mighty highball camper for a 10 day trip from Darwin to Alice and the poor quality of the van (broken cooking appliances, missing cutlery) and hidden costs nearly ruined our holiday.. the customer service we received in Alice Springs from Julie (branch manager) was just awful. We fought very hard to get unfair charges refunded to us but what a headache. Avoid mighty at all costs.

Horrible front seats there is literally no space for legs and butt,seats are uneven so I am sliding down all the time after 30 mins drive my partner driver and I both suffering strong back pain, you cant fit here unless you are 30 kilos so uncomfortable and the driving is hard because the transmission is stiff and old even though they told us this car is new,only solution when we came back that we can sit and we have 4000 km ahead of us they offer pillow or to upgrade for another $1200 for same type but newer model with better seats! Horrible customer service no solution offered! And this is not for 3 people at all as they say it is small for 2!we paid $1700 for this shitty car compeei h to jucy when everything was super modern and comfortable with great customer service this is ridiculous and offensive and discriminating because unless you have 40 kg you cant fit here and nobody bother to told us!! We are on our way feom adelaide to perth suffering insted of enjoying our dreamy holidays!so disaapointing!!

"Would do it again"

  • Reviewed 5 years ago

The good:
Mechanically sound, we got a diesel model with manual transmission, and its fuel economy was fantastic. Went from Melbourne down the Great Ocean Road and back on a single tank.
Included GPS tablet -- really convenient for finding places to stay overnight.
3-berth highball size is tall enough for two short people to stand up in, yet small enough to still fit in a normal-sized parking space.

The annoying:
Our van had over 340,000 km on it, and it showed. The interior was very worn and several drawers didn't latch (we had to block them closed with our bags so they didn't fly open while driving).
Heating a sausage on the stove set the smoke alarm off, even with all windows and doors open.
Van needed to be sprayed for ants on pickup.

I would rent a campervan again, but next time I'd try to get a slightly newer model. Some of the newer vans we saw other campers driving were really nice!

"Old car"

  • Reviewed 5 years ago

300.000km driven and suspension was terrible! Quite quickly we started noticing bedbugs and got bitten all over! We could not continue sleeping in it so there was no point in having a campervan, we stayed at airbnb instead! The office were only ok at check in but not when problems occured. We did not want to wait for the car to be fumigated as we had heard that it most often doesn't help anyway, bedbugs are there to stay. We will not get any sort of refund although they first told us we would, but at the end of the day they denied there being a problem with bedbugs. Total joke, I would never recommend this company to anyone!!!! I am pretty sure all those campervans have bedbugs, and they just can't get rid of the problem.

"THL: Mighty / Maui / Britz Campervan Rental"

  • Reviewed 5 years ago

Chosen because of the low price and its basics. But the leftovers from the former renters where left all over and swept under the seats. Barely noting was cleaned! The engine from the Highball was weak. Going up a small hill was just doable and made the car smell for hours. Not so nice if you have to sleep in the van afterwards! The bright side... Australia was great :-D. Little advice... spend your better elsewhere.

Hiya, I just read your post regarding the Mighty Jackpot. Just a note for clarification – the Cooker is portable, which means it can be used inside on the kitchen bench OR outside, not just outside. The reason for this is that when the weather is fine, many people prefer to cook outside on a picnic table instead of creating cooking odours inside the van. Just thought it was worth mentioning. Cheers!

"What's the difference? Admin"

  • Reviewed 5 years ago

If there is going to be a difference it will be the amount of km’s on the Mighty vehicle which are likely to be higher. The vehicle is likely to be a couple of years older and hence will have more wear and tear on the inside too. Likely to have little things not working as well and things like repaired fly screens rather than brand new ones, maybe the water pump will be a little clunky. Things like that

Britz will also include a few more additionals like the travel wallet with maps and things that you cant live without – like coat hangers ;-)

Hired a camper van from the cairns office. Absolute joke! The camper van smelled horrible and the managements only solution was for them to clean it. 3 attempts later and it still smells! I asked for our money back so we could hire a car and be on our way. 4 hours later and the manager just kept saying we can clean it again. No alternative and no way of me getting my money back.

Do not use the company or if you do be prepared for poor service, poor cleaning of the vehicle and if you do have an issue they won't do anything for you.
