Take camping to the next level with our 1971 Kombi Camper, Wallace. He has been fully restored with a new paint job, brand new interior throughout upholstered in genuine leather and a rebuilt 1900cc motor. Wallace is ready to take you on your camping adventures around Tasmania, starting in Launceston.
We can offer free airport transfers from Launceston Airport and can offer discounted rates for longer hires. (Please contact to negotiate rates hires over 7 nights- this may not be applicable during peak trading times)
Wallace seats and sleeps 2 people. He has a poptop roof for extra space, reupholstered 3/4 rock and roll bed, bench and cupboard space, sink, fridge, pop up tv, USB charging ports and much more. He is fitted with a duel battery system so all appliances run off 12V, which is charged by Solar Panels.
Wallace is stocked with basic camping supplies, including camp chairs, table, towels, bedding, cooking utensils, 12v cooker, Butane gas cooker, basic pantry supplies etc.
He is ready to take you on your journey from Launceston through to the north west. The east coast touring route including Bay of Fires, St Helens and Swansea, all the way through to our capital city Hobart to check out Mona and the Salamanca Markets. Or even an adventure through the windy roads of the West Coast.
Wallace is a very special van to us as he was fully restored by us and we also got engaged while on our first camping trip in him :)
We can't wait to share him with you!!!!
(Feel free to check out Kombi Hire Tasmania on Facebook or Instagram to check out our other Kombis and restorations)
Although Wallace has been restored he is still a vintage vehicle and some parts remain standard. He won’t cruise along the highway like your Ford Ranger or be as fuel efficient as your Toyota Prius. The idea with vintage cars is that they are a memorable experience to drive and a “blast from the past”. We have done our best to make bring him into the modern day and he regularly passes roadworthys but please keep in mind he is originally a 48 year old car.
Long term discount on negotiation.

As Kombis are air cooled and do not have a radiator it is imperiative that the oil temperature gauge does not exceed 120 degrees
Tasmanian roads are subject to wildlife from dusk to dawn so it is recommended not to drive after dusk to ensure no damage is done to the vehicle from wildlife or vide versa (also there’s nothing better than sitting in a Kombi and watching the sunset so pull over for the night as it gets dark)
Kombis are made for cruising so we recommend you stick to about 90kms on the highways of Tasmania
Fuel must be filled on return
We do not charge a cleaning fee so we would expect van to be in a neat presentable manner when returned
