We’re planning on buying a campervan and travelling in the Australian outback for six months from Feb 2006.
We went on a similar trip a couple of years ago (that time we drove the Oodnadatta & Birdsville tracks), and bought a 1984 Toyota Hiace. It was easy to buy it in Perth, but we had problems selling in Darwin in June. (The Hiace was so reliable we’re thinking of buying another - any views?. Our limit is AU$8000.)
Do you know which city would be best to fly into and buy a van? We’re completely flexible.
Similarly, which is the best city in which to easily sell the van at the end of our trip (July), bearing in mind the issues with rego in different states? We can enter and leave Australia from different airports.
Thanks very much for any information!
Jon & Vicky
