Wicked Camper Vans

Postby eoinzy » Tue Jan 06, 2009 12:08 pm

I've travelled around most of Australia at this stage. When we were doing the east coast from cairns to sydney, We rented out 3 camper vans. 2 in each.

the vans we got were Wicked Campers. Basically they're regular Mitsubishi Vans, except they're done up with all kinds of weird/wacky grafitti designs, and each have a unique slogan on the back, as well as a unique name. We had Old Man River, Pinky, and Pacman between the 6 of us.

They worked out roughly the same price as a hostel, so if ur travelling and staying in hostel, it works out the same, or even cheaper since u dont have to get a bus/taxi/plane/train!

Most of the models sleep 2 adults, but the large one sleeps 3, as far as i know. You see them all over the place, and every time we passed another wicked camper on the bruce highway, we got a beep or a wave. Very cool.

Anyway, link is here

Incidentally,

Wicked got in a bit of trouble with these vans.

In Australia, every vehicle needs to do a road worthy test. This checks the tyres, the engine, and basically the whole car\van\truck to make sure its in a good enough condition to be on the road!

Anyway, Wicked were called up on this and asked to submit their vans for the roadworthy. Out of the entire fleet, only 4 passed the roadworthy test!!

So, to stop themselves going out of business, they've gone and bought a load of BRAND NEW vans, and painted them with graffiti like the old ones.

At least you know now you're guaranteed a decent campervan!!

There was 6 of us together, and we got 3 vans between us. So we just needed 3 licences put up. Obviously I wasnt one of the 3!
