We have decided to have a spur of the moment holiday being a 2 week holiday to travel around NSW and maybe venture into QLD or VIC, we wont have a car at that point so we are either looking at hiring a camper van for the whole trip or maybe buying an old van instead. We want to stay somewhere different every night so dont think that it would be practical to pack and unpack a tent everyday.
Van Rental will come in under $1000 but if the van gets damaged etc its $3500 - $6000 in excess, so i'm thinking all the stray roo's that are around it might be cheaper to buy an old van instead, but am undecided.
We want to head either up the east coast then inland and down, then head back towards the coast and back to sydney, or do the opposite and head down the coast then inland and up and back to the east coast and down.
I'm leaning more towards buying a van / wagon / ute rather than hiring as we can sell it when we get back... or knowing me i'll hold onto it lol
