Description

Albert the campervan is a rare treat with a luxury custom fit out and a host of unique and reliable features to enhance your trip. My dog ‘Oscar’ and I have road tested the vehicle extensively - in fact we have just about circumnavigated the continent together working out everything you need and don't need for safe and comfy off-grid or on-site camping. That rich experience and knowledge is such a delight to share with others wanting to experience the freedom of life on the road. Even if it is just a weekend getaway! :D Toyotas are super reliable and Albert comes with low kilometres on the clock and a full service history. It is a manual, a dream to drive and cruises comfortably at 110kms. The vehicle seats 3 people for driving and sleeps 2 in the rear. Bring a swag or tent for the extra person! Albert has a fixed solar panel on the roof that charges in all weather. The accompanying inverter and deep cycle battery provide uninterrupted off-grid power for all your devices without you having to lift a finger. Allowing you maximum time to immerse into your adventure. The Camper can also be plugged into on-site 240v mains power via a fully waterproof adapter and power lead. There are 2 x 240V power points inside the van. Albert’s inbuilt pumps deliver HOT and cold water to the sink and the tap is a retractable hose that extends outside the van for use as a shower. Heaven! The Waeco fridge/freezer provides 80 litres of cold storage with plenty of room for a good load of perishable food plus your beers and wine. There is an inbuilt double-burner alcohol stove (much safer than gas) that you can easily lift out for al fresco cooking. A solid and roomy camp table, 2 x laid-back deck chairs and the sturdy Fiamma awning extend your camping life well beyond the van. The rear cabin seating area converts to a bed in under a minute! The sleeping area measures 1.3m x 1.8m and runs the length of the van (not side to side). The cabin is fitted with total blackout curtains so you can have an afternoon nap or sleep in long after sunrise ;) Linen, pillows, doona, blankets, towels, cooking utensils, tea towels, crockery, cutlery and much more are all supplied. All you need is your clothes and some food and you are on your way! There is heaps of storage all around the rear cabin for pantry food, clothes and shoes etc. The hard storage area above the bed is perfect for recreational equipment and/or a suitcase. Keep those pesky flies and mozzies at bay with durable, custom-made insect mesh on the cabin windows and doors. Easy zip access screens on the side and rear doors allow you to maximise air circulation and sleep peacefully. There is also a lithium battery-powered fan to keep you cool on hot summer nights with 32 hours of running time in each charge. Safety is a priority ! There is a bull/roo bar fitted on the front and a fire extinguisher and first aid kit supplied for emergencies. Albert has Royal Automobile Club (RAC) ‘ultimate’ roadside assistance coverage and full comprehensive insurance. A unique chassis lift adds extra clearance to give a commanding view of the road. The reversing camera makes it easy to park at night or in tight situations. There are also wheel-levelling ramps so you never have to sleep on an angle! There is an instruction manual about all Albert’s features along with a hard copy of the ‘CAMPS’ book/maps for locating caravan parks and free/paid campsites around Australia. DISCOUNTS ARE AVAILABLE for last minute or long duration trips. BOND Camptoo holds a security bond in trust until you return the van. This is to ensure the insurance excess will be covered in the unlikely event that something goes wrong. Camptoo offer a bond reduction cover that they will tell you about. If the driver/s are over 25 years, and licensed for more than 2 years, the bond will be $1500. We are happy for drivers aged 21 - 24, with a full licence, to hire and/or drive Albert. However, a $2000 bond will apply because the excess is much higher for this age group. PICK UP and RETURN When you pick up the van it will be ready to go with a full tank and clean inside and out. If required, there is a secure gated area to leave your own car for the duration. When your trip is (sadly) over, all you need to do is return Albert clean and tidy with a full tank of petrol. I will only charge a cleaning or fuelling fee as a last resort. You can put the used linen on the floor of the van and I will do the washing  I am looking forward to helping you make your road trip a reality! All the best John and Oscar!

    Firstly John is so good to deal with. He was really helpful and explained how to operate every aspect of Albert and equipment, and went out of his way to accommodate our time schedule. Albert himself was very easy to drive and manoeuvre. Just about Everything you could want whilst camping was clean and ready for use. The bed was easy to set up and comfortable. We had a great time and would not hesitate to hire Albert again. Thanks a heap John for making our trip so good

    We had the best 9 days in Albert. Starting with our first dealings with Camptoo (very user friendly) and then John. John was fantastic, extremely personable, very helpful, quick with his responses and spent time with us before the hire to show us Albert. His handover was very helpful and provided us with the knowledge needed to operate Albert and many other useful camping tips. Albert had everything we could possibly need and it was very thoughtfully sorted, felt like a home away from home! It was an added bonus being able to take our dog Bear who had the best week of his life! Overall a great trip, couldn’t ask for anything more, would highly recommend Camptoo , John and his van Albert.

    John lent us Albert for 4 days down in Bremer Bay. We and our two shepherds had a terrific time! Albert was clean and reliable and just big enough for the four of us. It was our first dog-campervan experience, and we’ll certainly do it again, and next time we’ll take advantage of Albert’s kitchen facilities. Thank you, John, for being on the end of the phone for any contingencies, it was much appreciated back-up. But everything turned out perfectly! See you next time, Dave and Lee Simes
