Popular Aussie Campervan Rentals Now Available In The U.S.

Campervan rentals and backcountry road trips have been a popular tourist attraction in Australia and New Zealand for decades. In contrast, this way to travel has really just become popular in the U.S. in the past decade or so.

While there are now many ways to rent and travel in a campervan around our nation, the original pros have finally arrived on our shores.

After expanding to New Zealand in the 2000s, the company has now opened up rental sites in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and San Francisco.

The company now has three locations on the West Coast of the U.S.

The company offers campervans of different sizes as well as free unlimited miles with each rental. They also have free maps and offer roadside assistance. The company also offers pickup and drop-off service and instant booking confirmation.

Their most affordable rental is a minivan/station wagon for only $45 per day.

Along with their mainstay Kuga Campervan, Travellers Autobarn also rents out a Chevrolet Express Hitop and a minivan/station wagon rental.

The minivan camper is an affordable option for couples or families. There is an optional “living equipment” package for an extra $45 that includes a tent, camping chairs, table, a camp stove, and cooking equipment. Renters will need to bring their own mattresses and bedding.

The Hitop campervan has a kitchen and 6’5″ of headroom.

The Kuga and Hitop vans can sleep two to four people and can be converted into various living and sleeping configurations. The Hitop campervan has all the gear for living on the road.

The Hitop dinette converts into a queen-size bed.

There is a microwave, fridge, propane stove, sink, and cooking gear. The kitchen, living space, and bed are all under a high roof that offers 6 feet 5 inches of headroom.

The popular Kuga can fit four people with its dinette/bed, as well as a rooftop bed.

The Kuga campervan is the company’s flagship camper and is also a Chevrolet Express. It has a rooftop bed as well as a dinette that converts into a second bed.

In addition to the Hitop, the Kuga kitchen also has a stove, microwave, fridge, and a sink. Like the Hitop, the Kuga offers 120-volt power outlets and USB plugs, but the Kuga also has solar panels for charging the auxiliary batteries.


The Traveller’s Autobarn rentals are actually quite reasonable. The daily rate for the minivan/station wagon rental is about $45 per day. The Hitop campervan is around $69, and the Kuga campervan is $75 per day.

The Kuga also has a kitchen with a sink, fridge, and microwave.

For transportation and a comfortable place to sleep at night, a West Coast adventure is looking better all the time. Learn more on their website here.
