FAQs

Yes! We do require a small fee for pets, but we get that they are part of the family too! We take our dog with us all the time and who wants to pay for a kennel???.
The short answer is yes, our caravans are made with off-road credentials. But this also depends on some of the information you provide and some fees for off-road use. Things like your 4wd experience, where you are going and your tow vehicle. Just remember that caravan recovery and repairs can be expensive. If you are not experienced, we would not recommend it.
There are very few caravan hire operators that will allow the vans to go off-road. This is due to the increased risk of wear and tear from corrugations. Off-road use also gets red dirt in every space imaginable. We charge the following for off-road use on top of the daily rate:
Off-Road Fee: $300
Off-Road Clean: $225 (The good news is you are not required to clean the van. This fee covers it all)
All of our hires are processed safely and securely through Camplify, which means Camplify holds your bond, not Shift Caravans. Your bond deposit and liability as a hirer depends on what liability waiver your purchase through Camplify. For more information about your bond deposit options, click here. (Please insert the link to the Camplify Waiver page)
The best part about a Shift Caravan is that you make it your home away from home. Based on the feedback from our customers, most of you prefer your own things. So we keep it simple. Rather than take up storage space with things you don't need, we let you bring what you want.  Sleep in your own sheets, bring your own pillow or sleeping bags, use your choice of paper, plastic or melamine plates. And you know food always tastes better in your favourite pan. We will supply a top notch caravan, you make if feel like home. What we provide:
  • Microwave (FREE OPTION requires 240 mains power)
  • Kettle (requires 240 mains power)
  • Toaster (requires 240 mains power)
  • Cleaning supplies including wipes, 1x paper towels, sponge
  • Everything to set up and operate the caravan components including awning guy ropes and pegs
Hire Options  (Please note you are welcome to bring these items, you are not required to hire them):
  • Table and Chairs
  • Bike Rack
  • Weber BabyQ
  • Gazebo
  • Generator 2.2Kv
  • Recovery Tracks
However, if is your first time using a caravan, here is a list of things we recommend
  • Paper/plastic cups, plates, bowl
  • plastic wine glasses
  • Coffee and hot chocolate mugs
  • Plastic serving platter for nibbles
  • Cutting board
  • can opener
  • Scissors
  • Flashlights
  • Linens or Sleeping Bags
  • Pillows
  • Towels
We have worked hard to make the X6 model towable by most SUV and 4x4 vehicles. The caravan weights 2200kgs empty and has a max weight of 2680. If you have a Prado, you can tow the X6 with 300kg of gear and food, but we would not recommend filling the water tanks unless you are travelling light. Most of our customers will be staying in a caravan park, so you will not need the tanks anyway. If you have any questions on whether you vehicle is suitable, give us a call. We will also have a 4wd hire partner soon! Here are the specs on the X6: Length: 15ft for towing. 18ft when set up. Weight: 2200kgs empty   2680kgs Max Tow Ball: 180kg
As long-time caravanners, we get it. Who wants to fight with a complicated setup after a long drive?  We built the X6 with you in mind. We measure our set up in two simple ways: 1) How fast can we get in for a sleep? 2) How fast can I set up for a long stay? Although not quite as fast as a Tesla, our stats are pretty impressive:
  1. Pop top and hard walled queen bed slide out - 2 minutes - Perfect for a rainy or late arrival; or a road side stop over. You can do this setup with your vehicle still attached.
  2. Stabilisers - 2 minutes - Pull the lever to drop and then wind them firm.
  3. Awning - 4 minutes - Wind it out with the crank, then drop and peg the poles.
  4. Outdoor kitchen slide out - 1 minute.
Not bad, huh?
The health and safety of our team and customers remains at the forefront of all we do at Shift Caravans. In line with the recent guidelines from the WA Government, we have implemented a number of steps to reduce the COVID-19 risks.  First and foremost, we ensure that every van in thoroughly cleaned and wiped with anti-bacterial clothes. We have also prohibited the drop off and re-hire of a van on the same day. This ensures we have ample time to undertake a proper clean.   We will continue to follow all government guidelines to ensure safe and happy travels for all our clients. Enjoy this time to see this wonderful state of ours!  All the best, Shift Caravans
