5 Tips for Driving Your Campervan or RV in Las Vegas

1. stay hydrated.

The Las Vegas area is known for its extreme heat, so always keep your Campervan or RV stocked with plenty of water – you’ll need it! And don’t forget to pack sunscreen. Remember, a hydrated road tripper is a happy road tripper.

2. Time Your Adventure Right

Let’s be real, no one goes on a road trip to sit in traffic, especially not in the electric city of Las Vegas. Here’s a pro tip: steer clear of the city’s peak traffic times. You don’t want to be stuck in a sea of cars when you could be lounging in a hot tub at an RV-friendly campground near NV, Las Vegas.

So, when are these dreaded hours of bumper-to-bumper despair? Think typical rush hour: 7 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 6 pm. Weekends, too, can be a bit of a car carnival. Why, you ask? Well, it’s simple – people are hustling to and from work or jetting off to their own weekend adventures.

So, plan your drives like a seasoned traveler. Cross that Nevada-Arizona border at the right time and spend more hours soaking up the good times instead of brake lights. Because let’s face it, hot tub > traffic jam. Always.

3. Mind the Speed Limits

Speed may be the name of the game in Vegas casinos, but on the roads, it’s a different story. With your own Campervan or RV, remember to mind the speed limits – these larger vehicles take a bit longer to stop than your average car. Plus, there’s no rush when you’re exploring the entertainment hub of the world!

4. Use Parking Facilities

Whether you’re visiting state parks or heading to the old Mormon fort, make sure to utilize Campervan or RV-friendly parking facilities. It’s not just about keeping your vehicle safe; it’s about ensuring you’ve got prime access to hiking trails, swimming pools, and national forests. After all, who wants a long walk back after a day of adventure?

5. Be Mindful of the Weather

While the poolside might call your name, remember that flash floods are common in desert areas – an unwelcome surprise for any Campervan or RV camping trip. So always check the forecast before setting out on your journey. That way, you can ensure your Las Vegas adventure is memorable for all the right reasons.

5 Must-See Destinations in Las Vegas

1. lake mead.

Who says Vegas is all about the glitz and glamour? Just a short drive in your Las Vegas Campervan or RV rental from the strip, you’ll find Lake Mead – the largest reservoir in the US. This oasis offers spectacular views, boating, fishing, and even a beach or two. It’s like a tranquil retreat in the heart of the desert.

2. Hoover Dam

Next on your list should be the Hoover Dam , an engineering marvel that’s as impressive as any Vegas magic show. Nestled in the Colorado River’s rugged canyons, this iconic structure is just a short drive from many pet-friendly Campervan or RV park areas. So, bring your furry friends along and let them marvel at the magnificent view, too!

3. Las Vegas Strip

Welcome to the pulsating heart of Vegas – The Strip . 9 miles from North Las Vegas, this is where you’ll find a dazzling array of casinos, world-class restaurants, and entertainment venues that could give Broadway a run for its money. Whether you’re keen on a game of blackjack or simply want to marvel at the neon spectacle, The Strip is a must-see.

4. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

If your idea of a good time involves crimson rocks under majestic skies, then rev up your engine for a quick 26-minute jaunt from Las Vegas Boulevard to the awe-inspiring Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area . Here, the sandstone peaks put on a spectacular show, the wildlife adds its own unique flair and miles of hiking trails invite you to join in! And the cherry on top? It’s a playground that welcomes pet-friendly RVs, so it’s the ideal spot for both two-legged and four-legged adventurers.

5. Mojave Desert

Last but definitely not least, set your sights on the enigmatic expanse that is the Mojave Desert . Renowned for its quirky Joshua trees and a night sky that rivals a Vegas light show, it’s the perfect place to unplug and immerse yourself in Mother Nature’s grandeur. And with a generous sprinkling of Campervan or RV parks in the vicinity, adding this tranquil treat to your travel plans is as easy as a desert breeze.

What's Included in my campervan rental?

Each campervan & RV comes fully equipped with all the essentials you need for life on the road. You can bring your own cooking & bedding gear or hire from us for as little as $45/rental for majority of our campervans.

Can I Use an International License to Drive in Las Vegas?

Yes, you can! As long as it’s valid and in English, you’re ready to hit the open road.

What mileage do the campervan rentals come with?

We believe in limitless adventures. That’s why all our campervan RV rentals come with unlimited mileage.

Rent A Retro-Style Campervan From Travellers Autobarn

' src=

Try #Vanlife on with a Campervan Rental

RV owners have known the secret to happiness for years; being out on the open road. Driving from one destination to the next in a home-away-from-home can provide a sense of freedom and happiness.

For those looking for the same comforts and benefits as an RV trip, but in a smaller package, say hello to the retro-style campervan rentals from Travellers Autobarn.

Retro campervan rentals from Travellers Autobarn

Travellers Autobarn offers retro-style campervans as a budget-friendly way to enjoy traveling. They have a selection of vehicles available to rent, including the Kuga and Hitop Campervans.

The Kuga includes extra storage room, solar panels, and plenty of USB plug-ins. Most impressive is the height; 6’ 5” allows travelers to easily stand to prepare meals in the fully equipped kitchen. There is a sink, gas cooker, microwave, and fridge, all powered by solar panels.

This van provides enough space for two or three people comfortably and includes a table and seating. For those wanting to forgo the hotels and fast-food chains, the campervan rental provides a great, economical alternative.

Renting a campervan allows for more travel time and less time loading and unloading suitcases at hotels. Park for the night at an RV park and let the stars be your ceiling.

Campervan rental locations

Roadtrippers can pick up a campervan in a few major cities, such as Los Angeles and San Francisco. Fly in from your hometown to one of these hubs, rent a spacious campervan and set out on an experience to remember.

Choose the starting point of Los Angeles and venture into Santa Monica, San Diego, Big Sur, or meander on down to Vegas. With unlimited free miles, the journey possibilities are endless. And with 24/7 roadside assistance, there is plenty of peace of mind while being out on the open road. Drivers receive a 10% discount with campgrounds as well.

Keep up with social distancing by exploring one or more of the national parks within the area.  Head toward the Denver area and spend some time at Yellowstone National Park, Grand Canyon, or Rocky Mountain National Park .

Another city that rents campervans is Las Vegas. Take a relaxing tour from one end of the Pacific Coast to the other or venture out back east. Plan out your trip or just let the road be your guide. The possibilities are endless when you are behind the wheel.

There are very few restrictions on locations and destinations. For example, due to the extreme heat, Death Valley can only be visited in a campervan during certain months. Dates banned for Death Valley include May 1 st through September.

While nearly all music festivals are open to a rented campervan, currently there is an exception with the Burning Man festival . Currently, the company doesn’t allow rentals to go to that particular event. 

Learn more about their RV rentals

Rent a van before the end of the August 2021 to receive a discount. The longer the trip, the higher the discount, which ranges from $50 to $150.  Visit their website for more information on their campervan rentals and current specials.

Want to test-drive the van life, literally? Travellers Autobarn has campervans for hire. We took one on the road to try it for ourselves.

Living out of a camper is no longer just for dirtbag climbers or travel-hungry globetrotters. People of all ages and from all walks of life have embraced either traveling or living full-time by campervan. And that’s just as true with renting the van life. For those not ready to purchase, there are plenty of great applications to using a van for adventures.

Who are campervans for? Really, anyone. Recent grads, remote workers, seasonal park employees, travel nurses or travel writers, retirees, and more are hitting the road, sleeper-style.

And Travellers Autobarn offers fully built-out campervans — with tons of room for gear — at an unbeatable price. I loved the van itself. But I also liked the services and features the company provides. These include unlimited mileage, access to a campground app subscription, solar panels for off-grid living, and more.

Kuga Campervan Rental: On-the-Road Review

Travellers Autobarn, an Australian company, just upgraded its fleet of Kuga campervans . The company is also fairly new to the U.S. It’s been running in Australia since 1993, but operations began here in 2019.

I lucked out and took one out for a 7-day road trip through California. Here are my thoughts on the experience.

Overall Quality

The van excelled in some areas. In others, it was pretty standard.

The overall essentials provided in the van were really great, and they were certainly everything I needed. The company thought of lots of little details, including USB charging ports for phones, a can opener in the kitchen, and exterior lighting for sitting outside at night.

All of the company’s Kuga Campervans were updated in 2020; however, the actual vans date back as far as 2012. This means that the cab, engine, and driver’s area aren’t quite new.

Now, I can’t totally fault Travellers Autobarn on this — the brand does market itself as a budget rental service. Just know that you might get a campervan, fully built out and functional, but older.

Appliances and Functionality

The appliances in the campervan are awesome. I tested every aspect and the features rocked it.

The Dometic gas cooktop sports two burners, and the Dometic fridge worked like a charm. The solar lights, panels, and outlets were all easy to navigate. And the electric hookups did the job as well.

Also worth noting, unlike an RV, the solar batteries are quiet — there’s no generator humming or groaning in the night.

campervan propane burner

Now, as someone who usually backpacks or tent camps, I only used the electric hookups one night (which power an added 12V microwave). Everything else in the van ran off solar . In my opinion, the hookups are great, but totally optional — with solar power, you can choose whether or not to stay in a developed campground.

Kuga campervan bed

The campervan I tested sleeps up to three folks. I never had three people inside, but the length and width of the bottom-level bed are spacious enough for two, and the upper loft (purely for sleeping) is adequate.

There’s not much headroom for the third person up top — about a foot — but hey, it can sleep three. And when the loft is stored away, there’s still plenty of livable space for one or two.

I used the upper loft section for bedding and extra gear storage. It’s worth noting that the max standing height in about two-thirds of the van is 6’5”, more than ample for most travelers.

Gear and Storage

Let’s talk storage, which is arguably the most important part of a campervan. No one wants to take a 2-week road trip or embrace the van life if there’s no room for toys and luggage on board.

There are three storage bins under each bench in the living space of the van: two cubby-sized bins and one large main compartment. I was impressed. This room provided stash space for climbing gear and shoes , carry-on luggage, camp blankets, furniture, chairs, dirty hiking boots, and more.

On this trip, I had a 50L duffel bag, camp chairs, a blanket, a paddleboard , a daypack, a hydration bladder pack, and a travel Dopp kit all stashed away.

That’s in addition to the water hosing and electric hookups, bedding, sleeping bags, pillows, and a full cookware and kitchen set (teapot, mugs, utensils, dinnerware) provided and stored in the van.

campervan living space

For a one-week road trip, I had everything I needed and more. For anything longer, I would have still had ample room for gear, but I would probably have to be more strategic about food storage. (The campervan included a fridge, so I didn’t bring a cooler.)

Based on what I packed, I was able to utilize the storage for both living essentials and my personal gear. Converting the storage benches from a dining area to a bed was also fairly easy, though most days I opted to forgo the interior table. I picnicked, ate, and aprés outdoors instead.

Water, Gas, Solar, and Electric

The Dometic cooktop uses standard propane, and it’s a great size. Additionally, the fridge fit more than I thought it could. Anything not stored in the fridge went into the cupboards, which had extra room for dry goods in addition to the van’s cookware.

The water tank in the Kuga campervan holds an impressive 13 gallons (some van builds have tanks as small as 5), providing plenty of water storage for a week or several weeks.

The hose that came with the van (for refilling the tank, which I never needed to do but did test) is a standard 25-foot hose. The water pressure in the sink was great, and this aspect was seamless to operate.

campervan water refill

The solar panels on the roof also worked great, and — thanks to California’s sunny disposition — it provided plenty of power along my trip. And the battery system was quiet.

The solar panels powered outlet and USB charging ports, the fridge, and interior and exterior lighting. In one national park, it took less than 2 hours from sunup for the two solar panels to fully charge. Impressive.

This campervan rental and road trip experience would have been miles different without this awesome solar-powered feature included on the Kuga Campervans.

Travellers Autobarn: Pick Up/Drop Off Process, Customer Service

Picking up my campervan had some ups and downs.

First, the company does an awesome job with communication, namely pre-check-in emails and digital information about your trip. I got an email several days before, a day before, a receipt upon arrival, and several at the end of the trip.

The Los Angeles Travellers Autobarn office, which I assumed would be a sunny and busy mecca, was a fairly low-key van depot. The public-facing company storefront was closed due to COVID, so take the following with a grain of salt. There was only one other person waiting to check in and pick up a van, so it didn’t take long.

The staff member who checked me in was helpful but didn’t seem the most engaging. He gave a full overview and walkthrough of the van features, answered a few questions I had, and (after a short mixup with a set of keys) I was on my way.

Returning the van at my final destination was a much smoother experience. The staff was super friendly, and the office seemed a bit more organized. Overall, my experience with Travellers Autobarn staff and customer service (in person and over the phone) was positive.

Renting With Travellers Autobarn: Why You Should

Now, I’ll dig into all the behind-the-scenes, fine-print details. Here are the pros (there are lots) and cons of renting a campervan with Travellers Autobarn.

Campervan: Fully Equipped

It’s a campervan! Sure, you could rent a car from Budget and road trip to hit some national parks, or stealth camp in a U-haul .

But really, if you are going to give someone else (or yourself) a road trip adventure, go all out. Bring refrigerated goods, bring your favorite pillow, bring the surfboard, and the trad climbing rack.

Bask in the convenience of solar panels and running water. Glamp it up.

Low Renter’s Age

Unlike Outdoorsy , GoCamp , and several other van rental services, you don’t have to be over 25 to rent with Travellers Autobarn. (There’s no young driver fee, either!) All you need is to be 21 or older.

This is a huge perk for recent grads (like my younger sister), young professionals, and millennials looking to dip their toes into the ever-trendier “living out of a van” lifestyle.

No Mileage Fees

Repeat after me: Free. Unlimited. Mileage. Take that unexpected road detour. Stop at your friends’ house. Don’t stress about how many miles you spend driving around looking for the perfect spot to camp .

Don’t worry about added costs if you go over. Travellers offers unlimited miles on every campervan rental. I love this aspect of its service.

the Kuga Campervan parked along California's pacific coast highway


Travellers Autobarn told us that the all-inclusive (campervan rental, insurance, supplies) average cost per trip is $20-40 per day. (My trip came to almost exactly $33 a day.) We’ll do the math for you: A 2-week road trip is about $420. That’s cheaper than most airline costs — and definitely cheaper than a week of lodging.

Even on a DIY road trip, I can see myself spending at least $20 per day on what the campervan provides: a vehicle, lodging, a place to cook and eat (stove and fuel), and a gear room on wheels. Now, the cost does go up when you factor in things like campground fees and gas, but that’s all part of being on the road.

To make the deal sweeter — or if you are on a tight budget ( ahem , young professionals) — and worth your while, Travellers tosses in things like discounts for more days on the road, a free subscription to a campground app (with discounts) for all renters, and free 24-hour roadside assistance (which you hopefully won’t need!).

Campervan Cons, Other Logistics

I experienced very few cons with this campervan rental service. But, there were a few.

Driver and Vehicle Safety

Travellers Autobarn is a budget campervan rental company. Its vans are affordable and accessible to nearly everyone. If you are looking for a luxury, $200-per-night van getaway, this isn’t it.

The company discloses that its vans are older (as old as 2012) GMC and Chevrolet vehicles, meaning the cab isn’t the most up to date, and its controls may be manual (side mirrors, windows).

I imagine for renters not familiar with driving 18-foot vans, high-tech vehicle features like smartphone compatibility for directions and automatic controls in all vans would be nice. And that may even make the driving experience safer.

van cockpit

For context, we not only test-drove a campervan, but we also took a look at Travellers Autobarn’s whole California fleet for a better perspective. I’d guess a bit more than half of the vehicles had newer, automatic controls.

However, I also had a few issues on the topic of vehicle safety. One, the van I got had over 130,000 miles on it (this is not a con, just more mileage than I expected). And two, I had a few engine/service lights go on and off while driving.

When you are 80 miles from the nearest town or driving up a mountain road, this can be nerve-wracking. I had cell service, and I was able to call the company’s customer service (the team member I reached was helpful and knowledgeable) to determine whether it was safe to continue driving. But no one wants to have to deal with that on a road trip, especially when the company is marketing travel to remote places.

Slightly newer vans should be in Travellers Autobarn’s future plans. And unofficially, they are, as the company told me it plans on updating the vans every few years.

Because these are rental vehicles, Travellers Autobarn does not allow pets. So if you’re a pup parent, you will need to make arrangements for when you’re away.


a webpage showing Travellers Autobarn Kuga Campervan itinerary

For a vehicle rental service, it’s cool that Travellers also provides itineraries for those looking for more structure and trip ideas. This takes them up a level in my mind from just a rental service to more of a campervan and adventure company.

a webpage describing a week-long Travellers Autobarn Kuga Campervan itinerary

It even designs itineraries around specific activities, like climbing and winter sports.

I followed one of its itineraries as I tested the campervan. And while I loved the stops, national and state park recommendations, and pace, I do wish a few more details were included.

Things like two or three recommended options of where to stay, maybe a few “locals’ tips,” and a labeled estimated driving time for each day would be helpful additions.

Limited Pick-Up Locations

If you visit Travellers’ website, the first thing you’ll probably notice is its extensive, nationwide itineraries.

We’re talking Seattle, Los Angeles, Lake Tahoe, Denver, Miami. The contiguous U.S. is your oyster (kind of). However, Travellers’ home bases for the brand new Kuga Campervans are only in L.A. and San Francisco, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada.

This is in addition to Travellers’ home stomping ground of Australia and New Zealand .

So, if you are super set on renting a campervan from these folks, you’ll want to factor travel to those locales in.

I will add that Travellers Autobarn is expanding to home bases in Denver and Seattle this year. So hopefully, you won’t have to wait long to get more options near you!

Final Thoughts

I traveled over 1,000 miles around and across California, hit up four National Parks, and a half dozen state parks as well. The van was fairly easy to drive, the interior living space functioned really well, and there was room for gear.

Short of not quite feeling like home (though this rental was better than some other rental “lodgings” I’ve experienced), this van delivered. It gave me comfort, convenience, and access to outdoor spaces.

And given everything that was included, the price is a huge positive that you really can’t turn down. I’d consider renting from Travellers Autobarn again, unless I catch myself buying and building out my own van first.

Travellers Autobarn Review – Campervan Rentals & Prices

Home | Travel | Travellers Autobarn Review – Campervan Rentals & Prices

Travellers Autobarn is a campervan rental company that we’ve used on several occasions, both in the U.S. and abroad. The Australia-based company has been around for over 30 years now, although it launched in the United States just a few years ago. Even so, it has quickly become one of the best places for RV rentals in the USA .

The company is concentrated in the Western U.S., so we’ve rented Autobarn campervans for a couple of trips around Las Vegas and the West Coast. More recently, we rented the Kuga campervan from Travelers Autobarn for an exciting journey through New Zealand. I can wholeheartedly recommend this rental service, especially if you’re looking for a vehicle that’s safe and comfortable, but also within your budget.

If you want to cut right to the chase and rent a camping van, you can go straight to the Travellers website . Otherwise, keep reading for my full Travellers Autobarn review , what we love about it, and why it’s one of the best campervan rentals in the U.S.

My honest Travellers Autobarn review – 3 campervan rentals later

As I said, we’ve used Travelers Autobarn a few times now, so we’ve become quite familiar with their campervans and the whole rental experience.

We rented the Kuga campervan each time, as it’s the perfect model for us. This high-roof campervan is efficiently designed and has a dining area, sleeping area, and a full kitchenette. I’ll share more about the Kuga van and the other Travellers camper van rentals in a bit, but just know that every rental comes with free unlimited miles, which is a huge bonus.

Van pick-up, autobarn travellers

My honest Travellers Autobarn review

Since we travel as a couple, we have plenty of space in our campervan. That said, the Kuga model is designed to accommodate up to 3 people, which I can imagine would be a bit uncomfortable, but doable. The loft area converts into a single bed, but since we didn’t need it, we used it for extra storage space.

I also love that we can prepare our own meals in the van. This is perfect for when we want to explore more remote areas for extended periods of time. The campervan comes with a sink, fridge, and gas cooktop, powered by the van’s battery. There is also a microwave, but this is powered by the van’s solar panels, so that’s something to be aware of.

The campervan is tall enough for us to be able to stand up inside it, which makes it a lot easier to move around (Dan is 5’ 11”). Plus, we can convert the dining area into a bed in less than 2 minutes without having to open the doors. However, if you’re in the driver’s cab, you must exit the vehicle to get into the back part of the van.

Travellers Autobarn review

During the rainy days, we often use the dining area for work. We always travel with a portable Wi-Fi device , the Solis hotspot , so we can have reliable internet connection everywhere, but there are also other awesome options if you need internet while traveling .

As for driving, it’s an automatic transmission, so it’s quite easy to maneuver. It might take a bit of getting used to since it’s more top-heavy than a regular minivan, but it’s not difficult at all.

And, of course, the price for a Travellers camper van rental is very competitive. The company markets itself as a budget rental service, so you can find great deals. That said, the prices vary depending on the season, as well as where you pick up the vehicle. We’ve always picked up our campervan in Vegas, and the daily rate was around $120/day. Again, you get free unlimited miles as well as 24/7 roadside assistance, making this one of the best campervan rentals in Las Vegas .

The only con for us is that some of the vehicles are older, with some dating back to 2012. However, the company regularly services and updates its fleet, and the interiors were overhauled in 2020.

Travellers Autobarn locations in the USA

Travelers Autobarn USA has three locations in the Western U.S. At each location, the pick-up times are Monday to Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., and the drop-off times are Monday to Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The Las Vegas location is just a few blocks from the Strip, so it’s super convenient. You can pick up your Travellers campervan after visiting the top attractions in Vegas . The Travellers website even has popular road trip ideas to inspire your next adventure.

You can also find Travellers camper van rentals in Los Angeles , California. The office is in Inglewood, so you can check out LA’s best attractions , and then head out on the road to explore the more natural areas and parks.

travellers autobarn hi top model campervan

There is a third Autobarn location in San Francisco , specifically across the San Francisco Bay, in Hayward. If you want to start your trip in this city, a good idea would be to see the best places in San Francisco , then hop aboard your campervan for a road trip adventure.

Travellers Autobarn announced that it has two more U.S. locations coming soon: Denver and Seattle . So, you’ll have even more options for renting a cheap Travellers campervan and exploring the great United States wilderness.

Other Travellers Autobarn locations around the world

There are additional Travellers Autobarn locations outside the United States. The company actually started in Australia , so there are offices throughout the country, including in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Perth, and Darwin.

They also offer campervan hires in Auckland and Christchurch, in New Zealand, as well as an office in Tokyo, Japan .

Types of Travellers Autobarn campervans

Choosing the right vehicle for your trip can be tricky, so Travelers Autobarn makes it easy by offering 4 types of campervans. You can find more details about each type below.

Keep in mind that an optional “living equipment” bundle is available with any rental for a one-time fee. It includes things like cutlery, pots/pans, cleaning supplies, sleeping bags, and linens. Also, Travelers campers in the USA aren’t self-contained, but you can purchase a portable toilet for a one-time fee, so it’s something to consider if you want to do some dispersed or free camping.

Minivan Rental – Seats 2-5 • Dodge Grand Caravan (2012 – 2017 Model)

The Travellers minivan rental is a converted Dodge Grand Caravan. It’s good for weekend tent camping trips to nearby locations. Since it’s smaller than the other vans, it gets slightly higher mileage plus, it’s easier to drive.

Minivan rental, travellers camper van rental

You can add the living equipment bundle to this rental for $45, and it includes a 2-person tent, two camping chairs, an outdoor table, a gas cooktop, and cooking supplies. There is also the option to rent a folding foam mattress with sleeping bags and pillows.

Hi-Top Campervan – Seats 2-3 • Sleeps 2-3 • Chevrolet Express Campervan (2014 – 2016 Interior)

The Hi-Top Campervan from Travellers Autobarn is a Chevrolet Express campervan that sleeps 2-3 people. It has an older interior than the other campervans, but also tends to have lower daily rates, so it’s a cheaper alternative.

Campervan rental in San Francisco, autobarn locations

The van has a full kitchenette with a 2-burner gas stove, a fridge, a sink, and a microwave. It also has an 11-gallon water tank, 120V and USB plug-ins, a double bed fit-out, and a single bed in the loft area. You can add the living equipment bundle to this rental for $45.

Kuga Campervan – Seats 2-3 • Sleeps 2-3 • Chevrolet Express Campervan (2019 – 2021 Interior)

The Kuga campervan is Travelers Autobarn ’s most popular model and our personal favorite. It has a full kitchenette with a 2-burner gas stove, a fridge, a sink, and a microwave. You’ll also have an 11-gallon water tank, 120V and USB plug-ins, a double bed fit-out, and a single bed in the loft area.

This Autobarn campervan has slightly newer interiors compared to the Hi-Top Campervan, as well as exterior lights and rooftop solar panels. You can add the living equipment bundle to this rental for $45.

Hi5 Campervan – Seats 4-5 • Sleeps 4-5 • Ford Transit Campervan (2022 or Newer)

Finally, the Hi5 Campervan is the largest Travellers campervan available, as well as the newest. It features a full kitchenette with a 2-burner gas stove, two fridges, a sink, and a microwave. There is also an 11-gallon water tank, 120V and USB plug-ins, two double beds, exterior lights, and rooftop solar panels.

HI5 travellers autobarn reviews in the usa

The custom-built interior of this campervan hire grants you more storage room and a living area, plus a second row of seating behind the front cabin. It can sleep 4-5 people, so it’s ideal for families or groups. You can also add the living equipment bundle to this rental for a one-time fee of $75.

Travellers Autobarn insurance options

While Travelers Autobarn gives you the option to forego insurance, I always recommend purchasing insurance, so you’re covered in case anything happens. Besides, Travellers Autobarn’s insurance options are straightforward:

  • Collision Damage Waiver (CDW): Covers damage to your campervan, includes protection for 2 tires and the front windshield. $13/day ($25/day for Hi5 Campervans).
  • Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI): Up to $500,000 in protection against 3 rd parties (other vehicles, property, or people). $13.99 ($16.50 for Hi5 Campervans).
  • Protection Plus : Includes CDW and SLI. $26.99 ($41.50 for Hi5 Campervans)
  • Minimum Cover : $0. You’re responsible for any and all damages.

It’s always a good idea to purchase insurance! You don’t want to risk having to pay thousands of dollars for any damages caused by you or someone else.

If you’re traveling from outside the country, don’t forget your travel insurance for the USA . Health care is ridiculously expensive here!

Price of Travellers Autobarn campervan rentals

One of the best things about Travellers Autobarn is that it offers highly competitive rates. That said, the price of your rental depends on several factors, such as the pick-up location, the type of campervan, and the season.

Below, you can see the prices for a Travellers van rental for a 7-day trip and a 30-day trip. For this comparison, I selected Las Vegas as the pick-up and drop-off location.

*Sales tax and insurance not included

Travelers Autobarn ’s daily rates tend to be lower for longer trips, so you can save a lot of money if you’re traveling for several weeks or taking a month-long journey. You’ll find the lowest rates on the company’s website, and if you check the “Specials” page, you may find limited-time offers.

Also, your rental comes with free unlimited miles, 24/7 roadside assistance, a 30-day free trial to The Dyrt’s campground app, and discounts at select RV parks. All these benefits make Travellers Autobarn one of the best places to rent a campervan in the USA .

Travellers Autobarn promo codes & discounts

The Autobarn Travellers rates are already very good, but if you’re looking to save even more money, you can take a look at the website’s “Specials” page . Just make sure you read the terms and conditions to see what’s included and not included in these limited-time offers.

Travellers Autobarn discount for long hires

You can save on your Travelers camper van rental by extending the length of your trip. The “long-hire” discount is automatically applied to rentals over 7, 14, and 21 days. This discount lowers the daily rate 5%-20%, so you can save quite a lot. One-way fees are waived for any rentals over 28 days.

Travellers Autobarn special deals

Throughout the year, Travellers Autobarn offers special discounts for certain locations. For example, 15% off rentals out of Las Vegas and Los Angeles during some months. Check the website’s “Specials” page for more information on current Travellers Autobarn deals.

Travellers Autobarn relocation deals

Another special offer you can find on the website is a relocation deal. These types of discounts change throughout the year but can be a great deal if you’re flexible with your travel dates.

Travellers Autobarn special offers, travellers autobarn terms and conditions

For example, you may find a Las Vegas to San Francisco relocation deal that includes 3 free days and 700 miles. However, the special only applies to certain Autobarn campervans . Also, you’ll be charged for any excess miles (50 cents/mile) and days ($99/day).

Travellers Autobarn discount for U.S. military personnel & veterans

Lastly, U.S. military service members and veterans can get 10% off their Travellers campervan for rental periods of 7 days or longer. To get the discount, you must contact Travellers Autobarn customer service and present valid documentation.

10 Things that make Travellers Autobarn the best campervan rental in the U.S.

There are plenty of reasons why Travellers Autobarn is considered one of the best campervan rentals in the USA . Below, I’ll share the top 10 reasons why Travelers Autobarn stands out from the rest.

1. Space-efficient conversions

Travellers campervans are ideal for couples, which is why they’re so perfect for us. The Kuga and Hi-Top vans can accommodate 2-3 people, while the Hi5 vans can sleep 4-5. In addition to a full kitchenette, there is a convenient dining area with a double bed fit-out, plus a loft area that can be used for storage or an additional bed.

dining area travellers autobarn reviews

One of the coolest things about the campers from Travelers Autobarn is that you can easily convert the dining area to a sleeping area in less than 2 minutes without having to open the van’s doors or stepping outside.

We visited New Zealand during our 10-month around-the-world trip and we were traveling with two big suitcases, plus two big camera bags. However, we had plenty of room in our campervan to move around comfortably.

2. Fully-equipped campervans

Travelers’ camper van rentals come with everything you need for life on the road. Your camper comes with a full kitchenette, which includes a decent-sized fridge, a microwave, a sink, and a gas cooktop. You’ll also have plenty of storage space for dry goods as well as luggage and equipment.

Campervan kitchenette, travelers autobarn usa

Fully-equipped campervans

The vans also have an 11-gallon water tank with a 25-foot hose, charging ports, and USB plug-ins. The Kuga and Hi5 campervans also have rooftop solar panels, so you can enjoy short-term off-grid living.

We also appreciated the battery capacity since on our New Zealand trip it rained non-stop for 3 days, and we were able to work on our laptops without driving around or draining the batteries.

3. Free unlimited miles

One of the best things about renting a campervan from Travelers Autobarn is that you get free unlimited miles, regardless of which vehicle you choose. So, there’s no need to worry about taking a detour or circling the lot looking for a parking spot.

4. Great campervan rental prices

In addition to free unlimited miles, Travellers Autobarn has highly competitive daily rates, making them one of the best options for budget-conscious travelers. You can get a campervan rental for as low as $50/day, and insurance costs as little as $13/day.

Of course, keep in mind that the prices depend on things like your rental location, the length of your trip, the type of van you rent, and the season.

5. 24/7 roadside assistance

Another perk of renting from Travelers Autobarn is that you’ll have 24/7 access to their roadside assistance team. So, if you get stuck with a flat tire, you need a jump-start, the vehicle breaks down, or anything else, help is just a phone call away.

24/7 roadside assistance

Travellers Autobarn can also help with any questions or concerns you may have, be it a mysterious light on your dashboard or you’re worried about running out of gas. To reach them, simply dial 1-800-469-4790.

So far, we haven’t had to use roadside assistance, and I hope to keep it that way!

6. Super quick pick-up/drop-off process

Once you confirm your reservation, you’ll receive email alerts in the days leading up to your pick-up time with all the necessary information. You can also complete the online check-in to make the in-person pick-up process super quick and easy. You’ll also receive email notifications before your drop-off date.

7. Friendly pick-up/drop-off times

Travellers Autobarn ’s pick-up hours are 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday – Saturday, and the drop-off hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday – Saturday. If you need to arrange pick-up outside of these hours, you can contact customer support. However, contactless pick-up is only available in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

8. No young driver fee

Many campervan rental companies require drivers to be at least 25 years old, but with Travellers Autobarn , you can rent a van as long as you’re 21 or older. Plus, there is no young driver fee, making this the best option for young professionals or recent graduates.

9. Discounted caravan parks

When you rent a Travellers camper van , you’ll get a 10% discount for your stay at any KOA campground in the U.S. You’ll receive the discount code when you pick up the vehicle, and you can use that code when booking your campsite reservation on the KOA Campgrounds website .

Be aware that this 10% discount applies to your first stay, and for a maximum of 4 nights.

10. Free 30-day campground app

Travellers Autobarn is partners with the online campground platform, The Dyrt. With your Travelers camper van rental , you’ll get a 30-day free trial for The Dyrt’s Pro Camping app .

The app helps you find top-rated campgrounds in your area, download campsite maps, create your own itineraries, and more. You can even get exclusive discounts at hundreds of campgrounds nationwide.

Travellers Autobarn terms and conditions

It’s always important to read the fine print so you know what you’re getting with your campervan rental. You can read the full Travellers Autobarn terms and conditions here , but I think the most essential information pertains to cancellations and changes to your rental.

Campervan in the Southwest, travellers autobarn van rental

Campervan Hire Review: Travellers Autobarn

It’s 2020 and the entire American nation (and world) is in the midst of a global pandemic. Borders are closed all over the globe, leaving quarantine-weary Americans with little choice but to hit the road. And what better way to do that than with a campervan hire!

travellers autobarn vegas

This site may contain affiliate links to products. We may receive a commission for purchases made through these links, at no cost to you

I hope you’re reading this in a better time than was the massive dumpster fire that was 2020. But right now, Americans are taking to road trips like white girls to pumpkin spice lattes. What better way to social distance, we figured, than driving out to the middle of nowhere and sleeping in a van??

While I didn’t exactly drive to nowhere (2 US National Parks), I did partner with Aussie-based Travellers Autobarn to hire a campervan and jump on the #vanlife craze.

travellers autobarn vegas

They have rental hubs in the western part of the US, so if you’re dying to visit any of the beautiful National Parks or beaches out in that direction, Travellers Autobarn has got you covered with convenient locations in Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

We took the Travellers Autobarn Kuga campervan for 12 days, where we drove over 3000 miles from California to Wyoming and back.

We tested the van out in the mountains, around wildlife, in the cold (and rain and even snow!), and then drove it back down through the desert, and I’m here to review our experience!

Our Kuga campervan was a 2012 Chevy 2500 panel van that Travellers Autobarn converted into a campervan. The top was removed and replaced with a hightop, making it possible for us to stand and walk inside the van.

It sits and sleeps 3, although it was just myself and my husband, Kevin. The sleeping arrangements are a dinette set that converted into a queen bed, and storage overhead that could be pulled out to make a single bed above.

The small kitchen has everything you need, with a fridge, 2-burner stove, a sink, and a microwave! A solar panel mounted on the roof powers the fridge and sink pump (as well as the lights). If you want to use the microwave, you have to be plugged in to a campsite with RV power.

No bedding or kitchen supplies come included, so if you need or want that you have to add on the living equipment bundle for an extra $45 USD.

travellers autobarn vegas

What We Liked

Since it was our first time doing campervan hire, it was interesting to find out what worked for us and what was a little challenging.

We definitely liked the high top design, I really think being able to fully stand in the van made for a more comfortable experience.

It was awesome not to have to worry about powering our fridge or sink pump. If those hadn’t worked without the solar, it would have been quite a pain.

travellers autobarn vegas

The bed was quite large, it was more than enough room for both of us. Kevin is 5’11” and he had a couple inches of vertical room. The mattress was a little too firm for me, which I expected so I slept on top of a blanket.

It was nice to have the overhead storage where the extra bed was stored. If we had had luggage for another person and needed a place to put all of it to pull out that bed, I expect that would have been really difficult.

The rental came with unlimited miles. This was great because we took it over 3k miles and didn’t have to worry about extra costs.

travellers autobarn, campervan hire, grand teton mountains

The ‘living equipment’ bundle pretty much gave us everything we needed. We replaced a few things with our own stuff to make ourselves more comfortable, but we were able to do that because we took the van home before we set out on the road. The bundle is perfect for anyone who had just flown in and doesn’t have kitchen equipment with them.

What We Didn’t Like

We tried hard to remember that this van was a converted used van, and it wasn’t made expressly with camping in mind. That being said, there are a few things Kevin and I noted that were slightly inconvenient and we wouldn’t want in a van we bought or converted ourselves.

My chief complaint was that the solar didn’t work with the outlets that were in the van. The only reason this really bugged me was because we took the van to the mountains in the fall and it was too cold for me to sleep without a heater (it even snowed one day!).

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Kelly Lacy (@theawkwardtourist) on Oct 5, 2020 at 9:05am PDT

There wasn’t a heater in the back of the van, only the one up front for when you were driving. We had a small space heater that could be plugged in, but only when we were hooked up to shore power.

We stayed in a few campsites with RV hookups (solving the problem), but those sites are more expensive and drove up costs.

The doors and windows weren’t powered. Only a slight annoyance as we had to manually lock/unlock every door every time we left or returned to the van.

travellers autobarn vegas

We couldn’t access the back of the van from the driving/passenger seats. It wasn’t a big deal for the 12 days that we had it, but if it was longer-term I think I would have gotten tired of it.

That was pretty much it! And as I said, those are only things that we made note of that we might change in our own van, as a rental on a short-term trip none of them were dealbreakers.

Overall we had a great experience with our Travellers Autobarn campervan hire and would definitely recommend them!

campervan hire, travellers autobarn

Our pickup and dropoff experience with Richard at the Los Angeles office was fairly seamless, and would have gone very quickly had I known to do the online check-in before picking the van up. It’s a real time-saver, I definitely recommend doing that.

Once we were ready to return our campervan, I received an email with instructions to fill up the petrol and propane, and to clean it inside and out. They even gave me the address of places nearest the LA office where I could get these things done.

We really don’t think the whole process of campervan hire could have been any easier, and we’re very grateful to Travellers Autobarn for facilitating our trip!

Have you ever traveled in a campervan before? I’d love to hear about your experiences!

An RVer’s Guide to #VanLife

Review: travellers autobarn kuga campervan rental.

Travellers Autobarn Kuga Campervan at Seven Magic Mountains, outside Las Vegas, Nevada

Full disclosure: Travellers Autobarn hosted my van life trip to Utah. Also, this post contains affiliate links. If you purchase something through these links, I may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. All opinions are 100% my own and 100% honest. Thanks!

My First Van Trip!

The travellers autobarn experience, secrets to #vanlife success, #vanlife essentials, our southern utah road trip route, final thoughts.

First things first: it’s no secret that I’m a proud RVer . But I fully admit the allure of van life just hits different. There’s something about a van and the open road that screams freedom, know what I mean?

I’ve always been curious about giving van life a try. So, when the opportunity presented itself to take an adventure van on a southern Utah road trip with one of my good friends, I thought to myself… why not? Fast forward a few weeks and I found myself on a quick flight to Viva Las Vegas to pick up my home away from home for the next five days, a Travellers Autobarn Kuga Campervan.

The Kuga is a dare-I-say-it adorable van, circa 2018-2020, that fits up to three people. It comes with a microwave, cooktop, mini fridge, sink, and solar panels that power the interior lights and fridge. (There isn’t a generator.) The van gets 13-15 miles per gallon and a rental includes unlimited mileage.

Order the optional “living equipment” package to receive sleeping bags, pillows, cookware, and camping chairs when you pick up the van, which is clutch for those of us picking up the van after a flight. Travellers Autobarn also offers a free space heater, hot water bottle, and extra blankets during the winter.

So what’s my one-word review of van life? Fun! RVing definitely prepared me for the experience . The biggest differences between traveling in a van versus a RV? Storage space is definitely at a premium in the van for sure, so pack light. But it’s SO convenient to not have to worry about a chase or tow car. Vans can truly park anywhere, opening up a lot of great dry camping options, especially in the west.

Read on for my honest review of the Travellers Autobarn rental van experience and our southern Utah girls trip itinerary, featuring stops at two National Parks, two State Parks, and a whole lotta red rocks.

Road tripping across Nevada and Utah with Travellers Autobarn

Our mid-October trip began when I picked up the Kuga Campervan in Las Vegas. Travellers Autobarn first opened in Australia in 1993 and they expanded to New Zealand in 2008 and the U.S. in 2019. So far, they have three pick up locations in the U.S.: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and San Francisco. Here’s hoping they open up more!

Fill out the registration form online before you arrive to make check in a breeze. I was on the road within 15 minutes. If you want the living supplies or winter gear, be sure to sign up for those ahead of time. Shout out to the Travellers Autobarn Las Vegas branch staff, who were super helpful.

Check your van before you leave to make note of any existing damages. These things are bound to get some wear and tear from adventuring but ours was generally in very good shape. Double-check that you have all the necessary electrical converters for plugging in to shore power at campsites ( this blog post is a good introduction to electricity on the road) and that your sleeping bag works – we realized too late that my sleeping bag zipper was broken. #rookiemistake

Driving in Vegas traffic was definitely the most stressful part of the trip. Pro tip: Terminal 1 at the Las Vegas airport has a 7 foot clearance for arrivals. That means that a 10’2″ Kuga van is too tall! ( 😱 !) If you are picking up a friend, have them take the economy parking lot shuttle and meet you at the cell phone waiting area that is nearby.

My advice? After arriving in Vegas, load up on some Trader Joe’s groceries, grab some In-N-Out and head for the red rocks as soon as possible!

Travellers Kuga Campervan rental experiance

If you are considering a van life trip of your own (which you absolutely should, IMHO), here are some tips to ensure your trip is stress-free.

  • Be Flexible: This is the name of the game when it comes to RV or van life. No matter how much you plan, things are bound to go a bit awry. And that’s okay. In our case, my friend’s flight from the east coast got seriously delayed, so we called an audible and rerouted our course to arrive at a closer camping spot than intended for our first night.
  • Plan Ahead: I know, I just said that the best made plans still can go awry. But having a general sense of camping options, food and gas station locations, and nearby hiking trails or other attractions will make your life so much easier once you hit the road and your cell service may get weak. Campendium is a great, free resource for researching campgrounds and boondocking spots.
  • Mix It Up: Following that same theme of “be prepared,” Travellers Autobarn recommends that you plug in the van at least once every three days to ensure you don’t run out of battery for the lights and fridge. That works out well, because you may want to book a campground around that time to shower, since the van doesn’t have a bathroom. Local gyms and recreation centers often offer day passes, another good option for showering!
  • Know Your Budget: The nice thing about van life is you have control over a major cost variable: fuel. In this day and age, gas isn’t cheap, so if that is a concern, keep that in mind when planning your route.
  • Stock Up on Groceries First : The Kuga Campervan includes a mini fridge and a small food storage area. Before you get caught up in adventuring and end up hungry in the middle of nowhere, do a little meal planning and load up on groceries. Don’t forget to buy a couple jugs of water – while the van has a water tank, it is not recommended for drinking.
  • Check the Forecast: The weather matters when you live in a van.
  • Get To Your Campsite Before Dark: File this under: “do as I say and not as I do,” since we broke this rule several times. But it’s definitely a good idea to at least scout out your camping location in the daylight.
  • Stay Safe: Share your route and itinerary with someone, especially if you plan to go somewhere remote.
  • Leave No Trace: Leave all campsites better than you found them and respect our public lands. Learn about the seven principles.

Packing for a van vacation can be a challenge. Think of it as camping, with a few extra conveniences. In addition to the normal outdoorsy essentials (warm clothes, backpack, toiletries), here are a few additional items that you might want to consider bringing:

  • Phone battery power bank : you can also charge your phone using the cigarette lighter charger in the cab or the USB charger in the living area. But it’s always good to have an extra power source if you are staying off the grid for an extended amount of time.
  • Headlamp : it gets dark out there.
  • Portable mirror : if you are headed into town and want to check and see if you are presentable, this would be useful. There aren’t any mirrors in the van.
  • Sleeping pad : the Kuga has two sleeping areas: the “loft” and the dinette that converts into a sleeping area. We decided to use the loft as storage and found the dinette bed offered plenty of room for two sleeping bags. But, if I could do it all over again, I would pack a sleeping pad to add some extra cushion. A cozy Rumpl blanket would be a great addition, too.
  • Flip flops to use at a campground shower.
  • Quick drying towel
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Ziploc bags for food storage
  • Cleaning wipes and trash bags (or simply reuse plastic grocery bags for this purpose).
  • Hot hands: they were the real MVP when the temps got into the 20s during those fall Utah nights!
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Don’t forget to download some podcasts or music before you head out on the road! During this girls trip, we enjoyed binging “Spectacle,” a podcast about the history of reality TV.

Southern Utah road trip: Capitol Reef National Park and Snow Canyon State Park

Southern Utah is just magic. I’ve written about past RV trips to this corner of the world. It’s a place that somehow looks simultaneously like Mars and every iconic old western set.

For this five-night trip, we planned a ~745 mile route with stops at Valley of Fire State Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, and Snow Canyon State Park. As mentioned above, our first day we dealt with some flight delays that slowed us down a bit. We had planned on spending two nights at Bryce but instead opted for a shorter drive and stopped for the night outside Valley of Fire.

I think this route is an efficient way to experience a good variety of southern Utah’s gorgeous scenery and charming small towns . During this trip, I was especially excited to visit my fifth National Park of Utah’s Mighty Five: Capitol Reef National Park, which did not disappoint. If you want, you could add a day or two and squeeze in a stop by Zion National Park, too.

Here’s a look at our route via Google maps:

Pick Up: Las Vegas, Nevada

  • Must Do: stock up on groceries, grab some In-N-Out, and hit the roads ASAP!
  • Side Note: click here to read my Nevada road trip bucket list !

Stop 1: Valley of Fire State Park – Overton, Nevada

  • Stay: this beautiful little state park has two awesome (and very popular) campgrounds. All campsites are first-come, first-served. If they are booked up (like they were when we visited), there are ample dry camping opportunities just outside the western entrance on BLM land .
  • Must Do: drive the White Domes loop, look for bighorn sheep at the Beehives, check out the petroglyphs at Atlatl Rock, learn about the area at the visitor center.

Stop 2: Bryce Canyon National Park – Bryce Canyon City, Utah

  • Stay: Tom’s Best Spring Dispersed Camping is a super convenient boondocking option near the park, with tons of space to spread out.
  • Must Do: start with a stop at the visitor’s center to learn about the geology and see if there are any ranger talks or other events planned for the day, hike either the Fairyland Trail or the Navajo/Queen’s Garden Loop to experience the best of the hoodoos, drive to all the scenic overlooks, go shopping for souvenirs at the historic Ruby’s Inn (they have everything), make reservations at Ebenezer’s Barn & Grill for a country music review and dinner you won’t forget (the songs are still stuck in my head).

The views of Capitol Reef National Park in Utah

Stop 3: Capitol Reef National Park – Torrey, Utah

  • Stay: we split our time between Beas Lewis Flat Dispersed Camping (awesome views) and Wonderland RV Park , who were wonderfully helpful.
  • Must Do: drive Scenic Route 12 from Bryce Canyon to Torrey – so gorgeous, and be sure to get coffee at Bryce Canyon Coffee Co. on the way. Start early at the historic Fruita District to buy some of the park’s iconic pies (they have sold more than 56k in 2021 alone!), hike Cassidy Arch, and soak up the never-ending vistas. We loved Dark Sky Coffee in Torrey, too. We didn’t get a chance to explore the region’s slot canyons , but they are on my list for next time!

Stop 4: Snow Canyon State Park – St. George, Utah

  • Stay: we lucked out and snagged a last minute reservation at Snow Canyon’s campground , which is certainly among the nicest State Park campgrounds I have ever seen. Highly recommend.
  • Must Do: explore Snow Canyon by car and by foot . Check out the Pioneer Names carved in the red rock. In St. George, check out Pioneer Park for unparalleled views above the city, grab burgers at Morty’s , and check out the friendly Silver Reef Brewing Company , home to great beers with labels any Land Before Time fan will love.

Drop Off: Las Vegas, Nevada

  • Must Do: If you are flying home after your trip, I would recommend returning your van at least two hours before your flight out of Las Vegas. It’s a busy airport that can take awhile to navigate, especially if you don’t have TSA Pre-check. If you have time, stop by Seven Magic Mountains for an Instagram-worthy send off!
  • Side Note: After you complete your trip (😭), take the survey provided by Travellers Autobarn so they can collect feedback about your experience. And be sure to share photos from your trip on Instagram using hashtags #travellersautobarn and #detourism .
