Welcome to Buddy!

Buddy has been our adventure vehicle for a while and now we want to share that fun with others. We have been in the deep south in minus 8 during winter, and in the far north in the heat - she’s a full 4 season, off grid, happy place.

Buddy can be driven on a car licence and with 160L of water, 500W of solar, a 2000 watt inverter and plenty of USB sockets, you won’t be stranded at any time. She plugs into mains power also with 230v outlets inside. All windows have fly screens. The 90l fridge holds ample food for 4-7 days and there is plenty of storage for your belongings and other food.

Buddy can sleep 5, with 2x double beds and one single (using dining table area). The main double bed at the back is a proper comfortable mattress (permanent arrangement). Note the single bed is a little shorter than standard at around 180cm long. The double bed up top can be set up to take a toddler with barriers for their safety. There are 3 belts in the front and 2 belts in the dining area. A diesel heater can keep the place more than toasty when the temperature drops and gas hot water means no cold showers! Standard Thetford cassette toilet. A back box has levelling chocks and outdoor chairs and table. On the passenger’s side there is an outdoor fold down area for cooking under the big awning. The camper is best suited for up to 4 people, 5 is a squeeze around the dining table.

Bike rack may be available, please enquire.

We lived in this camper for nearly 6 months with our 2 year old and Buddy never let us down - zero engine or equipment troubles. We hope you can have as much fun with Buddy as we have.

Feel free to ask any questions!
