Our OG green-and-purple Crib is famous at Australia’s travel hotspots, thanks to its nifty custom-built design and cool camper features.
Driving around Australia with your belongings, bed, and a cleverly designed kitchen has never been so easy (nor as easy to park). Formerly a soccer-mum minivan, we’ve turned this caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. Convert the two bench seats into a bed by night, and be wowed by the compact kitchen as you cook up a campground feast.
If you’re looking for a fuel-efficient, effortless ride, book your JUCY Crib campervan hire online or call us on 1800 150 850.
We’re road trip crazy at JUCY. That’s how we’ve mastered campervan building. How else do you explain fitting so many cool features into a small van?
Our Crib is a 2-berth campervan; perfect for roadies with your best bud or that special someone. Your comfy double bed appears like a magic trick; a quick 1-2-3 with the bench seats and ta-da – a double bed for your snoozing pleasure!
In the rear, you’ll find a compact kitchen with everything you need (including utensils) to make a morning cuppa, sunrise breakfast, or even a midnight feast.

The tiny home movement is so hot right now. We’re like, duh, of course, it is. We’ve been custom-building #vanlife tiny homes for nearly two decades!
We have long known that a compact space and a clever design can give you everything you need for an enjoyable time on the road. When you rent a JUCY Crib, you’re saying yes to one of the easiest campervan drives around (something you’ll find especially true when you park in the city centre). And our Crib’s compact size means it’s economical on petrol, too.
We’ve built some cool features into the vehicle’s interior. Storage space hides under the two bench seats and removable tabletop. It’s the perfect set up for dining in after cooking in the kitchen we’ve craftily hidden in the boot.
When the stars begin to shine and a few yawns creep in, a quick shuffle of the bench seats, and a double bed emerges. Add bedding (provided at no extra charge), pull the blinds, and you’re all set for a night filled with dreams of white sandy beaches, curious koalas, and nature’s finest landscapes.
Where to Go in Your JUCY Crib?
If you’ve made it this far, you’re considering a low-cost, super fun road trip in our JUCY Crib. If only our Cribs could talk, the countless adventures it has been on!
Well, we don’t need our Crib to turn into Kitt from Knight Rider (80s ref, peeps) to know how to share a good itinerary or two. Nah, we've gone ahead and prepped some of our favourite destinations to travel to in a JUCY Crib. Read on!
The Gold Rush Rennaissance: Exploring the Best of the Gold Coast
The Gold Coast has gained popularity lately, thanks to 2020/21 gifting Australians the chance to reflect on what’s important in life. It turns out it is tropical weather, gorgeous beaches, and a hinterland so lush it looks surreal.
We set you off to a good start as our Gold Coast branch is only a block or so from the glorious sandy stretch of Greenmount Beach. Of course, you’ll want to actually leave the area, and for that, we recommend a ton of cool places.
Currumbin is an excellent kick-off point to show the diversity experienced on the Gold Coast. Get amongst the lush flora and wild-about-it fauna in Currumbin Valley. Head inland to the ancient rainforests found at Lamington National Park and Springbrook National Park. And don’t forget all the watersports action on the coast! With a lot of mountain roads to explore, you’ll be pleased to be travelling in our Crib compact 2-berth campervan! Want the finer deets? Head here!
Free to Roam: Adelaide to Melbourne
Did you know that JUCY permits one-way trips (for a fee)? That means that you can enjoy a journey like this Adelaide to Melbourne itinerary without having to worry about returning your JUCY Crib to our Adelaide branch. We know our Adelaide branch is convenient (it’s near the airport), but we also know that when you’re in explorer mode, you want the freedom to go far and wide! Plus, when you drop off in Melbs, you can choose between our Melbourne Airport or Melbourne City branches. Who says you can’t have it all?
Of course, the star of the show on this trip is not us (sadly), but the incredible sights you see along this 700-kilometre+ route. Like the stunning landscape of Second Valley in the Fleurieu Peninsula and the windswept beaches of Robe. And is there a bigger attraction on this iconic route than the 12 Apostles on Great Ocean Road? Probs not! This is a 7-day road trip for the records and one that is best experienced in a JUCY campervan hire!
Escape the Rat Race: Cairns to Airlie Beach
Are you looking for a road trip that gets you offline, away from the news, drama, and hubbub of everyday life? Awesome, then you’ll love our 10-day Sunshine State itinerary from Cairns to Airlie Beach.
Picture yourself wandering the colourful Kuranda Markets. Or spying kangaroos as you hike the trails of Barron Gorge National Park. How will you feel as you gorge yourself on delectable treats in the Atherton Tablelands? Or when you take a dip in the Devil’s Pools? Starting to get the idea?
Whether it’s checking out cute towns, incredible natural sights, wandering wildlife or this route’s breathtaking beaches, you will not be disappointed in your life choice to take this epic Cairns to Airlie Beach road trip!
Sunny Side Up: Brisbane to 1770
Not every Australian roadie has to include long drives. Nope. When you have a stretch of coast as exceptional as the one from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast and up to 1770, you can spend more time relaxing than ever before! Especially when you’re conveniently travelling in a custom-converted 2-berth campervan!
It all starts from our Brisbane Airport branch, where you’ll head north to stunning Noosa. Noosa is everyone’s idea of a good time: perpetual sunshine, postcard-perfect vistas, and good food to boot. Not that you need to eat out when you have a cool kitchen of your own to cook a feast in.
Our 7-day campervan road trip itinerary continues from the quaint markets of Eumundi to the historically significant 1770 and Agnes Water. It’s the perfect kicking off point for Lady Musgrove Island, too, where the southern Great Barrier Reef awaits. Oh, and you can’t travel this far without a visit to the whale watching capital of Australia: Harvey Bay!
There’s no denying this is a doozy of a roadie and one you won’t want to miss!
The Route Less Travelled: Gold Coast to Melbourne
It’s not one of our most talked-about road trip routes, but that makes it no less worthy of your time. On this 6-day Gold Coast to Melbourne roadie, you can cram in a lot of cool stuff.
Like what kind of stuff, you say? Attractions like the popular Arrawarra surf beach and coastal eye candy found in the Port Macquarie area. And you won’t want to miss Jervis Bay, home to the world’s whitest sand. Nor the 400-million-year-old Buchan Caves, near Lakes Entrance in Victoria. More magic follows in Wilsons Promontory National Park before you bid farewell to your JUCY Crib (or any JUCY campervan, really) at our either Melbourne Airport or Melbourne City branches.
