The newest 4WD in the Britz offering, the Scout 4WD is designed for travellers who want to get adventurous and explore off the beaten track but still enjoy the luxuries of a campervan, including sleeping inside the vehicle.
This strong, reliable Mercedes 4WD automatic van features push button 4WD activation and a higher clearance so you can explore more of the true blue Aussie terrain. After an adventure-packed day of exploring the outback, convert the dining area inside the vehicle into your comfy double bed for a good night's sleep. No more sleeping under canvas or time spent setting up or packing down tents! With quality camping gear stored cleverly in the rear slide-out kitchen, the Scout is the 4WD you’ve been waiting for.
The Scout 4WD is available for travel from 15 April 2019 - 13 November 2019 inclusive, and for Darwin to Darwin hires only.

Outback Safety Kit
The Outback Safety Kit is included with the Scout 4WD. The Kit includes an Emergency Position Indication Radio Beacon (EPIRB), snatch strap with D shackles and a folding spade. An EPIRB when activated transmits an emergency distress signal which can be detected by Australian rescue authorities. A snatch strap is used to pull a vehicle from a bogged position with the aid of another vehicle. The D shackles secure the snatch strap to a rigid anchor point.
Please note: A current and full motor vehicle driver’s licence is required and must be produced upon vehicle collection.
Visiting us from overseas? If your license is in a language other than English it must be accompanied by a current international driving permit issued in the same country as the driver’s licence was issued. An accredited English translation will be accepted in lieu of an international driving permit.
These pictures and specifications are indicative of the vehicle that will be supplied under your booking. Actual vehicles may vary according to year of manufacture and availability but your vehicle will be suitable for the required number of people and have similar specifications to those on this website. Vehicles cannot be requested by make, model, year of manufacture, features or specifications.
Essential Items included with every campervan:
General living - Dustpan and brush, fire extinguisher, bucket and hose, broom (2WDs), matches, clothes line, pegs, hangers (2WDs), dishwashing liquid, dish cloth and toilet roll (in vehicles with a toilet).
Kitchen gear - Plates, bowls, cups, cutlery and cooking utensils, drinking glasses, microwave storage containers, electric jug (2WDs), toaster (2WDs) and tea towel.
For comfort - Pillows and pillowcases, duvets/doonas (sleeping bags for the Safari Landcruiser 4WD and Outback 4WD), sheets and towels.
This service is included in the Inclusive Pack and The Bundle. This allows you to stop into the closest branch during your hire and swap your linen (pillow, pillowcase, duvet (doona) or sleeping bags (4WDs), sheets and towels) over for a fresh, clean set. Where possible it would be great if you could notify the branch ahead of time as this will ensure the items are available and ready for you when you arrive.
Child/Booster Seat Info
This vehicle can accommodate 1 child over the age of four years. Child seats cannot be fitted in this vehicle. Children under four years must not travel in this vehicle. One booster seat (minimum four years of age) can be strapped in the front passenger seat with the diagonal lap-sash seatbelt. Britz recommend that a Britz Safari 4WD or Britz Outback 4WD is considered when travelling with a child. The type of restraint required for your child depends on their age.
