I believe at Kingscross Sydney travellers sell cars, vans etc near a backpackers. I would suggest that you look in the "trading post" an Aussie paper to get some idea of costs etc. My son did just this 2 years ago. Use the van for 2 months then sold it through the Trading Post.
Cheers

HI ADAM
with campers vans in depends on how long you want it for. you will find sometimes they can be really cheap or very expensive my advice is check all hostel boards because you find many people that need to sell straight away due to them flying out.
if you go throug a dealer anywhere from 3 to 6 k sometimes.
but if you dont need the van for a long time sometimes it is better hiring 1 through the companys down here.there are some good deals going on at the moment.if you have a price i mind i know a guy thats sells to backpackers in melbourne i can always ask him what price you will be looking at just pm me.
cheers stu live the dream:)

You can also check out carsales and even ebay for cars. Just make sure you get it checked out before you buy so it doesn't leave you stranded somewhere

Head to Victoria Street in Potts Point - we stayed in backpackers there while looking for a flat and there were always at least ten vans along the orad with travellers sitting outside them waiting for someone to buy them. Most were around $4,500 neg.

Some sat there for weeks so if you can do a good bargaining trick then should be able to pick one up cheap and easy.

Otherwise travellers autobarn and travel wheels on William Street sell vans with guarenteed buy back - I think its 50% within the first year. Cost about $14k.
