Today Travellers Autobarn is proud to announce the launch of their first own-designed and own-built Hi5 Campervan, with the very first of the new Hi5’s hitting the road in New Zealand on the 3 October

Just like the previous model, it will accommodate 4 to 5 people with ONE BIG DIFFERENCE – the back bench (2 seats), previously located all the way back at the rear vehicle, have now been moved forward, behind the cabin seating. Other improvements include solar panels and increased charging points.

“The new Hi5 Campervan is a quantum leap forward in design and practicality, and being a newly-built product allows the new Hi5 to sit alongside our own-designed and own-built KuGA Campervans, launched approx. 2 years ago and our recently launched Toyota Hiace CHUBBY campers also designed and built by Travellers Autobarn, completing a high-quality line up of products specifically for the backpacker, youth, student, independent, time-rich self-drive market,” said Peter Burke, Managing Director at Travellers Autobarn.

“Lots of groups, families & travel agents have been looking for an option where all four or five passengers can sit closely together during their road trip, whilst still enjoying the luxury of space. The Hi5 is built upon the Toyota Hiace Commuter which is longer, wider and taller than the standard Hiace. This is especially a big win for families with kids who have previously expressed a desire to be closer together whilst driving, especially if the kids are in approved child seats or capsules”.

The Hi5 Campervan will come with all the basics, two double beds, a fridge, gas cooker, sink & microwave.
