Hitting the Murray River Trail to freedom in your RV campervan
Versatility and flexibility make campervans and camper trailers ideal for outdoor holidays.
The Murray River is beautiful and there are places you can go to that are very affordable.
The RV (recreational vehicle) has grown in popularity recently and been upgraded and revised to provide travellers with a budget-friendly holiday alternative choice. They are a logical solution to travel solution for travellers needs and budgets and give you the flexibility to explore our great river.
What's also great is the Murray River region is conveniently located between Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide making it a well rounded Australian experience.
Campervans and motor homes can sleep two people on bedding which can then be folded away to maximise the vehicles living space. The kitchen can feature a TV and DVD player. There are vans that can sleep up to four people and have toilets and showers.
An awning comes with many RVs which can be set up for outdoor living giving you freedom and choice and connection to the great outdoors. They are great if you want to visit a National Park. Campervans are good but for serious off road you may need something with a heavy duty chassis, springs and good suspension.
What's great is you can pull over at anytime and chill out.
Buying an RV
- Choose the right van: Do you research before buying any RV
- Research your destination: Know where you're going and how to get there. Travel shows and the internet are great sources of information.

- Save on energy: Power your van with solar panels and other accessories to avoid plugging in at a caravan park.
