Experience the best of both worlds when you hire a JUCY Champ. Our outstanding campervan gives you a compact vehicle to drive and park, no matter where you are. Even in Sydney’s tightly cramped parking spaces!
When you park at your campground for the night, it takes a quick one-minute to unlock your penthouse bed and, voila, you have a second bedroom and double your living space. The Champ also has a kitchen in the back.
Call us biased, but we think the best way to experience Australia is behind the wheel. And how much better is it when your vehicle comes with two double beds and a kitchen tucked neatly in the boot? Drive anywhere, eat anywhere, sleep anywhere (legally, of course)!
Alongside two double beds (one magically raises when you need it), our Champ campervan also has a raft of features. These include a kitchen with a gas stove, sink with taps and drain, plus an 18-litre fridge. We also supply you with bedding and kitchen kits, so there is no need to buy unnecessary supplies.

No matter what anyone tells you, size matters! At least, it does when you want to explore Australia in some rental wheels. At JUCY, we know how to get you a compact campervan that still has space. How? Practice! For nearly two decades, we’ve been custom-building our campervan interiors and figuring cool and crafty ways to give you more space.
Since hitting our fleet in 2016, our Champ campervan has been praised for being the stuff of legends. This is, in part, thanks to its penthouse bed. Once you’re parked up for the day, it takes less than a minute to get the roof popped and your second bed open for snoozing! We import our penthouse rooftop bed pod from Italy, and it comes with a super comfy mattress for a great nights’ sleep. Our fave feature? Opening up the tent flaps and stargazing in the middle of Australia’s finest scenery. Magical!
That’s not all! We have our custom-designed kitchen in the boot. Here, you’ll find a gas cooker, mini-fridge, and sink, plus all the utensils you need to cook up a feast. We even have some campground recipes, if you’re looking for inspiration. Don’t forget that all JUCY vehicles come with unlimited mileage, too.
Exploring the Wonders of Australia in Your JUCY Champ
Cruising Australia in a custom-converted campervan makes like easy! Drive our mini-van vehicles effortlessly by day, then pop your comfy bed by night, doubling your space. Our JUCY Champ is a 4-berth campervan suited to those on a smaller budget who don’t want to compromise on comfort. You know what else makes life easier? In-depth travel itineraries and a ton of travel tips that suit the way you like to travel, too. Good job we’re here then!
Campervan hire + travel know-how + a great price = winning!
Fly Down the Foodie Highway: Sydney to Melbourne
A cool custom campervan kitchen, plus a foodie road trip route equals a heavenly camper trip, in our humble opinion. Fresh produce direct from a local’s farmers market or even straight from a farm itself adds a level of flavour that a supermarket can’t match. Or making roadside stops at mom-and-pop stalls or bakeries or cute boutique eateries. From one foodie capital to another, we share the best travel and food stops from Sydney to Melbourne, teasing and tantalising en-route. Our dedicated foodie itinerary makes your mouth water at what’s to come!
Think artisanal coffees, and secret bakeries, and fresh Broadwater oysters or seafood straight from the lake. Oh, and plenty of attractions and scenic wonders, to boot!
Sensational South Australia
Good food, good weather, and good vibes – South Australia has it all, making it a perfect campervan road trip getaway destination!
We’ve a ton of cool recommendations in this Eyre Peninsula to Kangaroo Island blog, including hiking Mount Remarkable National Park, beach hopping in Port Lincoln, and exploring the nom-tastic delights of Adelaide.
From Radelaide, take the car ferry to Kangaroo Island, a stunning destination that’s practically a wildlife sanctuary in itself. Here, kangaroos roam free, dolphins and seals frolic in the ocean waves, and sea lions pose on white sandy beaches. Okay, they aren’t posing per se, they are lolling and sleeping mainly, but whatever they are up to, it looks good for your IG snaps (tag us #jucyworld, btw!).
The JUCY Champ: Your New Festie Bestie
Did you know that besides road trips, one of our most popular reasons to hire a JUCY Champ campervan is to take it to a festival! Think about it: arrive, park up, pop the Penthouse upper bed, and set up your downstairs bed ready to roll into at the end of a solid night of dancing front stage.
Morning rises, and you can not only roll right out of bed to the kitchen in the rear to make breakfast burritos and coffee, but you can side-step the exorbitant prices for festival food, too. Making a masterpiece in the JUCY Champ kitchen is a money-saver, a snooze-saver, and a lifesaver after an epic night's partying.
Splendour in the Grass is our favourite Aussie festival – thanks to the music, the vibes, and the ease. We can’t wait until the next one! Until then, read our Top 10 Reasons why you should Splendour in the Grass!
Plus, no need to check with us if your JUCY Champ is festival approved. If you can camp in a vehicle at the fest of your choice, you’re welcome to book a JUCY campervan that suits you and your group best! Once you’re booked in, these 10 festival camper hacks will help you prep!
