Hi to all
Im only new to the bt site but im finding it very usefull. My story is Myself wife and 4yo daughter are going round oz on March 08 for 12 months and have been on the look out for a large bt with a bunk. But due to the fact all bt owners love them and dont often sell them a idea came to me to see if any one wants to lease one for 12 months and then have it back for your own trips to come. i would be willing to pay weekly fee for 12 months up front and all insurance and leave a large bond. Its just a thought that some one might have there bt empty for a year and want some extra cash for that next trip Thanking you all Tony

In the past there have been others who have asked the same question, and to my knowledge there has not been anyone willing to hire or loan their van.

I am not aware of any Caravan Rental companies who hire off road caravans either.

Hi Tony

I support what The Hob says - buy second hand and you will then be able to re-sell at a similar value if you decide not to keep it after your trip. No wasted $$s on hire fees. You won't get one for hire. Most of the ones that come up for sale are because they have been purchased for doing the big lap, and they are snapped up quickly so re-selling is not a problem. You have heaps more choice now that there are more on the market than we had when looking for our a few years ago, so you should be able to find one with a suitable layout for your family needs. Don't discount the idea of buying from a different state to where you live. BTs are worth driving across the width or breadth of Australia to purchase, and the kilometres this adds to you big trip with fade into insignificance.

Hi Tony
We have been toying with the idea of selling our 22ft Bushtracker in February 2008.
It has every extra imagineable including a queen size island bed at front, a rear bunkbed/seat and a convertible cafe lounge dinette which makes into a double bed suitable for kids. If interested in knowing more please forward your Mobile or home phone number or email address and we will give you more information.
