Since 1993, Travellers Auto Barn, an Australian campervan hire & rental company, has sold and rented backpacker vehicles from locations nationwide. In late 2007, the company released the now legendary 'Chubby' van, a brand new 2 berth budget camper with funky, eye-catching designs. These have taken the market by storm and due to their popularity, the Sydney based company has just begun the release of another fifty brand new Chubby vans in bold new designs.
"We want to make a strong statement with these vans, that they are reliable, great value and very cool, rather than trying to grab attention with offensive pictures and slogans. The only thing wicked about these Chubbys is the price" says Managing Director, Peter Burke.
Joining the fleet of 50 existing Chubbys is the brand new surfing-inspired design called the 'Slow Jam'.
"We know that backpackers want to explore in something that they can tell their mates back home about and show off in photos, so we developed some pretty unique body decals for these vans. Add to this the fact that the Chubbys are basically brand new, extremely comfortable and just about the cheapest budget campervans on the road, and there is no real reason to rent something that looks, smells and drives a lot worse" according to Burke. "These things are like a private room on wheels and they actually cost less than a private room in a hostel! Its taken a long time to build up our reputation within the backpacker industry and adding high quality, great value products to our fleet sits perfectly with our image. The backpacker campervan industry has suffered some bad press lately, but we are determined not to be tarred with the same brush."
Travellers Auto Barn operates from six locations around Australia and rents a fleet of 350+ campervans and station wagons as well as selling vans, wagons and 4WDs to budget travellers for their Aussie adventures.
