    * Ready-to-go
    * Reliable
    * Outstanding Comfort and Condition
    * A Beauty


    * Toyota Hiace (1984)

(If you want a campervan a Toyota Hiace is the best choice as it is well-known for its reliability. It is the most common van in Australia so every mechanic knows it and you can find spare parts easily and cheap if necessary. Be careful with other brands/ models: Repairs can become very expensive or impossible when spare parts are not produced anymore and are rare at the wreckers)

    * Ca. 313.000 km

(For people who just arrived from Europe: That's not a lot over here. Vehicles mostly drive long distances at steady speed instead of stop- and-go like in European cities / autobahns. This and also the weather over here are less demanding for the material. I've seen many vehicles above 450,000 in good condition and shopping around you'll see the same. It's more relevant how good the owner took care of it)

    * Air Condition
      (from 1984 though, so don't expect too much but it is a lot better than nothing and you'll be happy to have it on the hot days over here)

    * 3 seats in the front
    * Bull bar

Recent mechanical history:

          o New carb kit, overhaul of accelerator pump and carburetor at ca. 311k
          o New front brake pads at ca. 306k
          o New fridge battery and wiring at ca. 306k
          o New rear tires at ca. 305k
          o New steering idler arm at ca. 305k
          o New steering shaft at ca. 306k
          o New hydraulic poles for pop top at ca. 298k
          o Ca. 80% renewed engine at ca. 298 km, e.g. new rings, ring assemblies, head, radiator, water pump (It's in very good condition and should outlast the rest of the vehicle)
          o New second-hand gear-box at ca. 295.000 km
          o Service done regularly, new service just done so ready to go (e.g. oil, oil filter, cooling water, safety check)

    * Ca. 11-13l of unleaded fuel on 100 km (depends where and how you drive)
    * Registered in Western Australia (cheapest, easiest to renew and to transfer) until May 2011
    * Ownership history:
          o Ca. 20 years by an elderly Australian couple
          o < 1 year by a young couple from NZ
          o Since late 2006 owned by me (German, 30 years old)


    * Pop Top

(It is soooo good to have this as it actually allows you to use it as your small house standing up straight, cooking, doing the dishes and moving around without getting severe back pain.)

    * 12 V Fridge (it is big and it is powered by a dual battery system and can also be plugged into 240 V)

(12 V fridges are very expensive. That's what makes camper vans with a fridge more expensive. But it's worth it. If you're living in it for months it improves quality of life dramatically when you can have fresh food (milk, cheese, meat, veggies, etc.) and cold drinks. It also saves you money in the long term because you don't need to spend it on ice for an esky or to rebuy perished food.)

    * Table (can be fitted inside and outside)
    * 6 seats around the table in the back
    * Big and comfy bed (2 people can sleep here very comfy, 3 if they like each other very much)
    * Curtains all around (full privacy)
    * Sink and big water tank (water can be pumped into the sink)
    * Two burner gas stove and gas bottle
    * Security windows
    * Mosquito nets implemented in windows and pop top (Very convenient in hot nights as you can leave the windows open and the pop top up)
    * Radio/CD (sorry, no MP3 but it comes with a lot of CDs)
    * Four 240V power sockets (you can plug in the camper van)
    * A lot of storage space


    * Inverter from 12 V to 240 V (you can charge phone, camera, laptop batteries, etc. while driving)
    * 2 camping chairs
    * 2 pillows and blankets plus linen
    * Solar shower (Fill it up and place it in the sun and after some time 2 people can have a warm shower everywhere and don't need to spend money to get one elsewhere)
    * Awning
    * 10 l jerry can
    * 2 extension leads
    * Water hose
    * Tools and Car-Jack
    * Torch
    * Picnic blanket
    * Sun umbrella
    * Fire extinguisher
    * 10 l Bucket
    * Cutlery (including sharp knives), plates, bowls, pots, pan, etc. (good stuff, actually everything you need plus more)
    * A thing that chases mosquitoes away (It works actually. I love it.)
    * A lot of helpful maps (including the essential "Camps Australia" which shows you free camp grounds all around Oz and saves you heaps of money and trouble)
    * Some games
    * Heaps of more small useful stuff
    * And a lot of travel and money saving advice from me if you want


    * Contact Fabian per email (preferred) or at 0437 579 385
    * AUD 6,250 or make an offer
