Travellers Autobarn is an Australian camper van rental company with three new locations in the U.S. in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. I had the opportunity to come out to Las Vegas and take their Kuga Campervan for road trip and see what it was made of.
After arriving at their downtown Las Vegas location, I got behind the wheel of the Kuga campervan and headed out for a seven day journey visiting Lake Powell, Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Valley of Fire State Park.
Traveling through various rocky terrain, the van held up strong. The 31-gallon gas tank allowed me to travel long distances without the worry of running low. Luckily if I had run out of gas or broken down, their 24/7 roadside assistance would have come to the rescue.
Throughout my trip, I ended up staying primarily in empty parking lots and Walmart parking lots. My trip was in November, which is typically a pretty cold time of year at night in the desert of Utah. One night it dropped down to a brisk 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Luckily, the way that the Kuga’s top bunk bed is designed allows you to stay insulated and warm. The top bunk bed is very close to the ceiling which allows for very little body heat to escape. I was traveling solo so I can only imagine how much warmer I would have been if I had someone with me.
The Kuga can fit up to 3 people with ease. It doesn’t look big from the outside but it’s surprisingly spacious and well designed to maximize space.
Kuga Camper Van Features
The Kuga Campervan pretty much checks off all the boxes in terms of features. If you’re not looking for all the bells and whistles, they also offer basic/more affordable van options. Here’s what the Kuga offers:
- Sink with running water
- 2 burner gas stove
- Roof vent fan
- Charging ports for electronics
- Solar panels
- Extra storage
- Free unlimited miles
For an additional fee, you may also request an outdoor table, portable heater, sleeping bags, pillows, sheets, towels, cooking supplies, cutlery, kettle, and camping chairs.
The price of the Kuga camper van is pretty affordable but ranges drastically depending on the time of year. During the winter months, it’s around $50/night while in the summer months it’s around $125/night.
Overall, I really liked the Kuga campervan. It wasn’t anything fancy, but it had all the essentials for a 7 day road trip. It comes at an affordable price, especially for all the features that come with it. What’s great about Travellers Autobarn is they have three locations so you don’t need to drop off the campervan at the same place. This allows you to see more in less time!
