How many people are you travelling with?

The first question you need to ask yourself is: how many people are going on this trip?

Our campervans can fit up to six people so tally up your family and friends and make sure you don’t leave anyone out. If you have more than six people, book two vehicles and you can sort out who goes in which vehicle later. Like wedding tables on wheels.

The second question is: would you rather have some extra space?

Even if there are two of you, you might prefer to book a campervan that sleeps four to give you more space on those longer trips. So if you want more legroom, why not upgrade yourselves?


Perfect for a couple,  the Venturer and HiTop provide sleeping for two, whilst the Venturer Plus with the extra child's bed is perfect for a family with a child under 7. You'll get a kitchen, lounge and even a toilet & shower in the Venturer & Venturer Plus. So if you're looking for freedom and flexibility in an easy to drive package, look no further

You might be a couple keen on more space, or a family looking for some quality time away - well, the 4-6 berth range is for you. With apartment-style living, the 4-6 berth range come with multiple sleeping areas, fully furnished kitchens and a lounge to relax in. The Discovery, Explorer and Frontier also come with a toilet shower allowing you to freedom camp. If you're looking for flexibility in travel and the space to take more, these vehicles are for you.

Does size matter?

When choosing your vehicle, you might think a larger campervan would be daunting to drive, and try to choose a smaller one, but fear not! No matter a campervan's size, they’re easier to drive than it may seem so try not to let size become a defining issue. All models have large side mirrors and built-in GPS, while some have reversing cameras, making your drive even smoother.

Toilet & shower

Thinking of bush camping or staying in national parks? Then having your own toilet and shower could be a defining factor in choosing your campervan. Are you parking your campervan at Holiday Parks? If so, maybe they’re not so important. Perhaps the 'hold it ‘til we get there' mentality might be better suited.

In fact, if you’re staying at a Holiday Park, did you know all Britz campers get a 10% discount off powered sites at BIG4 Holiday Park campgrounds? It’s a pretty sweet deal.

2WD or 4WD?

Speaking of 4WD adventurers, if you’re looking for an off-road experience during your roadtrip, the vehicles you’re after would be the Britz Safari Landcruiser (4WD) or the Britz Outback (4WD). All other Britz vehicles are 2WD, which means you'll stick to the main, sealed roads for your trip!
