Gibb River Road 4WD Hire

By | Crikey Blog, Gibb River Road | No Comments

Hire a 4WD to travel on the Gibb River Road

Crikey Campers hire powerful Toyota LandCruiser 4WD’s paired with an Off Road Camper Trailer. Contrary to motor homes, our Crikey Camper 4WD Camper package can be taken fully off-road such as on the popular Gibb River Road.

The Gibb River Road is an adventure for some and more precisely a trip of a lifetime for others! You will be experiencing new and unfamiliar territory and explore of the last pristine regions of Australia. When comparing 4WD Self-drive products it is important that the equipment, standard specifications, fees and charges and suitability of the product hired for your trip is considered. Dig a little deeper than a simple online search and you will find that a Crikey Camper package is a unique product that has been designed to offer the outback traveler a safe and comfortable experience. You can find how we compare on this page.

Crikey Campers only hire Toyota 200 Series LandCruiser 4WD’s paired with a robust camper trailer made locally here in Perth, Western Australia. This 4WD and Safari Camper package is fully equipped for your trip on the Gibb River Road and comes with 3 interchangeable spare tyres.

Space is not an issue in our Crikey 4WD Camper. Luggage and load space can often be under-estimated while looking for a 4WD hire. Bedding, tents, water, cooking facilities, food, refrigeration, tools and recovery equipment and on average up to 60 litres of personal luggage per person need to be accounted for. Therefore, it becomes challenging for more than 2 people to travel in a single 4WD 4 door wagon. Due to its unique concept, the Crikey Camper package offers over 400 litres of storage independent of the vehicle! You can find out more about the storage on this page.

Geländewagen und Campinganhänger in Australien mieten

Mit Crikey Camper Hire können Sie ein 4WD Camper mieten und Westaustralien und Northern Territory entdecken.

In Westaustralien liegen die schönsten Orte und eindrucksvollsten Nationalparks oftmals abseits der geteerten Straßen und sind daher nicht mit herkömmlichen Wohnmobilen und Campern erreichbar.

Der 4WD + Safari Camper bietet deutlich mehr Platz und Stauraum und bis zum 5 komfortable Schlafplätze. Das ist ideal für Familien oder Paare.

How to choose the right 4WD Camper for your Western Australian road trip

By | FAQ, Gibb River Road | 3 Comments

Ask yourself these 7 essential questions when searching for your 4WD Camper rental!

4WD + Safari Camper Package

1.    What safety features does the car have?

Let’s face it, no ones likes to break down in the middle of nowhere! Make sure you check which recovery gear is included in your 4WD hire.

2.    Is there enough room for your luggage?

The 4WD you’ve been looking at might seem nice and compact but can you fit all your equipment? Think about where you will store your food, clothes, water, bedding, cooking equipment and table and chairs.

3.    Where can you go with your 4WD Camper?

The majority of the Western Australian’s attractions are located via off road access. Make sure you are able to take your 4WD Camper hire where you would like to go!

4.    How many people?

Some 4WD’s seat 2, others 3 and others 5! Explore your options and also make sure that everybody will be comfortable! Hard seats or soft? Access to the rear passenger seats?  Space available in the 4WD? And most importantly, would you like to sleep on sleeping mats or a mattress?

5.    How big is the water tank?

It’s extremely dangerous not to carry enough water. Towns can be very far apart and drinkable water not easily accessible. On average, you should cater for 10 litres per person, per day.

6.  What is included and what costs extra?

Look at the final cost and not the daily rate! A lot of little extra’s can make a cheap rental more expensive that an all-inclusive provider. Think about the table & chairs, child seats, extra drivers’ fees and kilometres.

7.    Liability reduction options?

It’s important to know what’s covered in your 4WD Camper rental and what is not. Companies generally hold a security bond secured via credit card and also offer liability reduction options to reduce your excess.

Feeling confused? Crikey provides you with peace of mind so that you can relax and enjoy your holidays in total comfort! Our 4WD + Safari Camper package is fully equiped and designed for off road adventures such as the Gibb River Road. All you need to bring is your food and clothes!
It’s camping truly made easy!
