Stationwagons vs. Campervans
First of all before you even begin to appear at cars you have to decide what vehicle is most suitable for your requirements. The principal factors are how a lot of people do you regularly intend to have in the vehicle, how many kilometres do you intend to do and how long have you got? These will help you when purchasing a car in Australia.
Australian produced six cylinder wagons like the Ford Falcons are cheap, very reliable and most of all, easy to find parts for in the remote areas of the nation.
Falcon facts — 12-13 litres/100 km fuel consumption, most have 4.1 litre motors — 80 percent are automatic. Very good quality falcons from a merchant like the Travellers Auto Barn will cost between AU$3,000 and AU$5,000 and will comprise NRMA registration, maps, registration, insurance, buyback guarantee and most significantly a trusted fully serviced car. A simple search on Gumtree or carsales will yield plenty of Ford Falcons for sale across Australia.
Falcons are great for –
- Individuals on a tight budget
- Individuals travelling for 2-3 months and planning to do large distances — Big kilometre’s / brief time
- over 2 individuals (up to 6 persons)
- Men/Girls who Intend to meet and travel with new friends
It’s also suggested that you’re travelling in a relaxed pace. You should look for low Kms and nothing older than 1984. It’s normally easier and much cheaper to locate a fantastic van than it is to get a fantastic campervan. Good campervans are tough to discover and usually cost AU$10,000 plus.
