The Best Small Camper Vans in Australia (2020 Edition)

I love looking for the best small camper vans here in Australia, and imagining what it would be like to have one and to live in it. I’d travel around Australia indefinitely, just going wherever the weather is not too hot or cold, and taking my whole house with me wherever I go.

But IF I were by myself, I think one of the smallest camper vans (but still with a bathroom!) would suit me just perfectly.

Millard Caravan Renovations | Caravan Renovation Series

We’re going overseas for the Australian summer (yes, this Kiwi really can’t hack the hot weather) and when we get back in March, I’d really like to get our 40 year old Millard caravan renovations underway. I have no idea how we’re going to do that, considering our caravan is our current full-time home. Nonetheless, I’d like to renovate her.

I know you know that. But just remember, your

I don’t know about you guys, but I spend way too much time scrolling through Instagram looking at DIY caravan renovations. I mean, waaaay too much time. I love looking at how these talented DIYer’s take a very tired, usually brown, and often water damaged caravan (I can only imagine what they smell like!) and transform it into something that is luxurious, light, comfortable and my all time favourite feature:practical.
