Transport by Campervan

Getting Around by Campervan

There is nothing quite like road tripping in a campervan: it’s like a little house on wheels, complete with sink, hob and bed. The size of that house will depend on budget, but even if you can afford to splash out you can still expect to be relatively snug. The beauty of camper travel – particularly in massive landscapes like the ones found in Australia or the USA – is that you can just roll up and sleep for the night pretty much anywhere. However, this isn’t usually necessary as anywhere remotely scenic will have dedicated campsites which you can park up in for the night. Sometimes it can be a bit daunting to just pull up at the side of the road, especially if you’ve seen movies like Wrong Turn and Wolf Creek.

One of the downsides is fuel costs: campervans typically have a pretty hefty tank and filling them up can sting the balance a bit, so make sure you budget accordingly. Another factor to consider is if you’re going to get along with the person or people you’re travelling with. The necessary closeness of camper travel means it can be nigh on impossible to have some ‘me time’, so be prepared for that too.

Australia is a hugely popular place to explore by campervan, due to its incredible scenery and national parks, and North America is also popular for much the same reasons. Europe can be explored by campervan, but many opt for the InterRailing option instead to keep costs down.
