Depots: Adelaide, Broome, Darwin, Perth. No east coast rentals. The minimum driver age is 23.
This Hilux has a rapidly deployable living and sleeping space. While the space looks compact, it does boast four beds: 1 double bed and 2 single beds. It also has a large fridge (100 litres capacity which is unusual in most rental 4WD campers), 110 litre water tank, foldable 120 watts solar panel, portable 2 burner stove, a simple handheld shower, side awning and recovery kit including 12V air compressor. Five people can be inside the 4WD while driving. Because it only has 4 beds, a tent with accessories can be supplied for the fifth person.
Although the Hilux marked as a 4-berth camper it’s good to know that the single beds have a length of 180 cm, the smallest bed is only suited for kids between 4 and about 10 years old. The bigger single bed can be protected with a safety bar. While camping the single mattress can be stored on the double bed. When resuming the ride you have to store the single mattress on top of the kitchen unit before folding the living- and sleeping space.
A Hilux is standardly supplied with two spare wheels. One on the back of the 4WD, the second one on top of the car (on the roof rack). You can also store several bags over here whereby we especially recommend the duffle bags from North Face or similar.
The benefit here is that it only takes 4 steps to walk out of the camper, which is a big difference compared to 4WD's equipped with a rooftop tent. Let's say you when travelling with a rooftop tent 4WD and you needed a toilet break at night, you'd have to descend down the steep stairs, making the non-steep steps of this Hilux much safer!
