Yarra Valley Vans: Caravan Hire

We are a family run caravan hire company located in Melbourne, in the beautiful Yarra Valley region.  We specialise in the hire of family focused caravans that can be towed by a wide range of vehicles.

Why hire from us?

Everyone has different requirements so we work with you to make sure that we offer the right van for your needs.

We believe that there should be no surprises, there are no booking fees and all the essentials are included to ensure your holiday is as easy and carefree as possible. Our Vans come fully equipped with Dinnerware, Cutlery, Kitchen Utensils, a Microwave, Dish washing supplies, a Toaster & Kettle, Pots & Pans and Cleaning supplies. All you need to provide is a vehicle capable of towing your chosen caravan, linen and food.

To ensure your Tow Vehicle is able to tow our Vans safely we have Towing Mirrors available that can be borrowed at no extra cost. Your Tow Vehicle will need Electric Brakes in order to tow our Vans. If your Tow Vehicle doesn't have Electric Brakes installed, don't worry as we have Portable Electric Brake Controllers available to Hire from us for a small extra fee.

If your vehicle is not capable of towing our vans, or you are just uncomfortable with the idea of towing a  caravan, for a small additional fee, we will deliver the van to your site, set it up and then collect it when you are finished.

We work with you to ensure that you have the best hire experience possible and pride ourselves in the service that we offer.

Why hire a caravan?

  • Unsure if caravans are your thing?
  • Looking to buy your own caravan but want to try before you buy?
  • Planning that one off family holiday?
  • Don't have any room to store a caravan at home?
  • Don't want the ongoing costs of owning a van?
  • Don't want to have tens of thousands of dollars tied up in a van that gets used once a year?
  • Starting off on a big lap and don't want to be stuck with a caravan afterwards?
  • Need some extra temporary accommodation for that big event / wedding / Christmas / birthday / family visit?
  • Doing some renovations and need to move out until they are complete?

There are many reasons to hire a caravan.  It could be that you are about to do the big lap or you just need an extra bedroom to accommodate the in-laws who are coming to stay.  Our caravans are available for long or short Hires (3 days minimum).

In fact, don’t bother going anywhere, try... read more
