Vehicle Info

The trusty 2015 Hiace is an awesome travel companion to get you from A to B with the convenience of sleeping 2. It also has a host of features that are a treat whilst out touring.

SLEEPING: The van contains a permanent double-sized bed for two. The side windows have mesh netting so the van is always well-ventilated while still keeping the bugs out! Enjoy the occasional sleep-in with blackout curtains to all windows in the sleeping area. The mattress and mattress protector are provided. Please bring your own sheets, duvet or sleeping bag.

COOLING: Air conditioning runs cold, and while stationary, utilise the many windows and crank the USB fan in the back to keep you cool and the area well-ventilated!

KITCHEN: The kitchen set-up is relatively basic. You’ll find the portable gas BBQ, extra large chilly bin, kitchen utensils and pull-out bench top at the rear of the van so you have the shelter of the rear door while cooking outside. Note, as this van is not self-contained, there is no fresh and grey water tank.

TOILET: Basic portable toilet is stored at under the bed - accessible when the bed is in use.

POWER: The van has a house battery that charges while you drive. It has plenty of power for many nights in one location. There are USB ports under the storage seat and at the rear of the van to charge your phone. An 800-watt inverter allows the running of small appliances and charging your laptop etc.

ENGINE: As a 2L petrol engine, power is somewhat limited when going up the hills, but being a modern Hiace, it drives like a dream on the highway. To save on costs while travelling, the van is fitted with a certified LPG fuel system.
