winter camping trip to Tasmainia

Hi, Me and my best friend are thinking about planing a trip to Tasmania in June next year for our 30th birthdays. We will have our partners with us and I was just thinking twice about the weather conditions if we were planning to hire a campervan/motor home to get around in and use for about 10 days...

Before you do anything check out these link -

If you're coming in June, IMO a car and cabins would be better.

Have a read of the posts in the 2 links above, over the years we've read many issues about campervan rentals, from faulty equipment, getting your deposit back, to unsubstantiated claims of damage against the hirer.

As the old saying goes "you get what you pay for"

Safe travels - Robert

I agree with Rob that a car and cabins would be better - even if you do find a reputable hire company it is just too cold
