4x4 Campervan

Four-wheel drive campervans are a popular choice for adventure seekers who would like to travel off the beaten track and enjoy camping in the middle of nature. Our 4x4 campervans are usually a jeep style campervan equipped with a comfortable roof tent. This offers you unique overnight accommodation under the stars.

This type of campervan has an all-wheel drive, is robust and can be taken off-road. A four-wheel drive campervan is therefore ideal for off-road adventures as well as exploring remote areas. You can be spontaneous and choose different routes with a 4x4 campervan and they are perfect for exploring South Africa, Australia or Namibia. This type of campervan is ideal for both families as well as couples. The roof tent can easily be stowed away.

Start Your Adventure Today With a 4x4 Campervan

4x4 campervans have good traction and an all-wheel drive system in comparison to other campervans. It ensures that the tyres have a good grip whilst driving and they do not spin on loose or wet surfaces. Even steep mountain roads or demanding terrains are no problem for a 4x4 campervan. This type of campervan is perfect for going on adventures whilst on holiday and for driving on non-tarmacked roads.  

Most four-wheel drive campervans are equipped with a tent mounted onto the roof of the vehicle. You can easily get up and down from the tent via a small ladder. The advantage here is not only the good view, but you can also enjoy a feeling of safety and comfort in your elevated sleeping space. Thanks to the roof tent, the interior of the vehicle remains flexible and can be used as storage space for your luggage. The 4x4 campervan models with a roof tent offer an adventurous yet comfortable way to discover the world.

Relaxing and Sleeping in a 4x4 Campervan

In a 4x4 campervan you can spend the night in a spacious roof tent attached to the roof rack. This takes classic camping to a whole new level. Depending on which model you rent, they can accommodate between two to four people in one or two tents. Some of the campervans also have a sleeping area in a small cabin.

The roof tent is quick and easy to set up. In just a few steps you can create a comfortable sleeping area above the vehicle. The tent is not too high, therefore, you will be protected from the wind and rain and you can watch the birds and your surroundings awaken after your restful night’s sleep.

Lots of 4x4 campervans that you can rent through CamperDays have a small kitchen. There is usually a gas cooker with various features that you can use to prepare your meals. The vehicle is usually equipped with a fridge or a cool box and storage space for crockery and food. A large water tank provides you with enough water for cooking and washing up. When the weather is nice you can cook outside thanks to a protective awning and the right accessories.

Tips on How to Book the Right Motorhome

If you rent a 4x4 campervan you have the freedom to explore different routes and go off-road. However, each type of campervan has its own advantages. The following useful tips below will help you to find the perfect campervan for your next holiday:

  • Think about the places you would like to visit and how many people would be going. Larger models offer more space and comfort, whereas compact 4x4 campervans are easier to drive on narrow roads and rough surfaces.

  • Don’t forget to rent any accessories that you will need for your 4x4 campervan on holiday. Think about what you will need to rent in advance such as bed linen, towels or camping furniture to avoid forgetting anything important.

TipIf you are thinking about going on a campervan holiday in Africa and visiting the different countries such as Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia or South Africa, you will have to pay fees to cross the border. Find out about the current entry regulations and fees of the respective countries before you start your journey. Some campervan rentals allow you to pay these fees in advance.

Accessories for Your 4x4 Campervan

When renting a 4x4 campervan you can choose to add some accessories to the vehicle. You can rent practical extras such as household or technical items from the rental company to help you have a stress free holiday. You can add an additional tent which will create another sleeping area or you can use it for relaxing and spending time with family or friends when the weather isn’t great. You can also choose to book a Sat Nav or a satellite phone for travelling to remote regions.

For a little extra comfort some rental companies offer a hard-shell roof tent for an extra charge. These are more stable than fabric tents and have better insulation. Booster seats and child car seats are available for a camping holiday with children. Being prepared and having the right accessories will ensure that you have a fantastic campervan holiday and enjoy it to the fullest.
