As you said the one way is the problem - no one wants to be stuck with a camper trailer for hire in Broome - very small market for camper trailer hire there I would think.

How much is it to hire one anyway?

Look on the "Net"to see if you can buy a second hand one and then try to flog it in Broome when you get there and even if you only get 50% back it might still be economical or buy a cheap tent etc and dump it in Broome.

Good Luck.

From memory Hire a camper Trailer here in Perth have an agency in Broome 1300 5878 4473. They use hard floor Pioneer camper trailers.

Make sure you give back more than you take

Try this mob. Hire is around $500 per week I think

I looked at hiring last year but in the end I bought one secondhand for $5000

I was going to hire one in Darwin for 10 days but the cost for three persons, Flight to Darwin, Trailer Hire and 4WD Hire was prohibitive so we are going to take our own trailer and vehicle and drive, just need more time off work.

G'day Nathan

Have you looked at buying one of the El-cheapo Chinese jobs and selling it cheap when you get to Broome.

Depending on your hire term will determine if it's more cost effective or not.

We did a trip to central Australia last year and camper hire was going to cost $2500, so we bought a flash howling moon roof topper for the same price instead. We had a ball with it and sold it for $1800.

We now have bought a camper.

Good luck
