How does the insurance work?
There is $200 bond payable upon initial hire. If the van is damaged the hirer if financially liable for the repair or the insurance, which ever is less. The hirer is responsible for any damage done to their van whilst on hire to them.

I’m not sure whether the space I have for the caravan is suitable?
Ideally the space for setting up caravans is a flat and solid surface. You will need to consider whether the van will fit under any carports you might have also. If you need some help you are welcome to text us pictures and call us to discuss your proposed site. Please note: Caravans cannot be parked on residential streets due to council regulations – they must be on private land.
I’m renting, do I need approval from my landlord?
It is the responsibility of the hirer to gain approval from their landlord if applicable. We strongly recommend you talk to them and gain approval in writing. If a caravan is required to be removed due to non-approval, a break of contract fee is charged and the van is collected.
How do I end the contract if I need to?
If you have already completed the full term of your hire you are only required to provide us with two weeks’ notice of when you would like the caravan collected. If you decide to terminate the agreement before the completion date the $200 bond will be forfeited.
What are the rules on using cooking and washing up facilities?
LPG cooking and the use of sinks are not allowed by council regulations if the caravan is parked on residential land. We can supply electric cook tops, kettles, and microwaves for use if required. Each caravan comes with a fridge.
What are the other general rules?
Pets – pets are permitted in vans though the hirer is financially responsible for any damage caused or any extra cleaning that may be required.
Smoking – No smoking at any time in caravans. Cleaning fees will apply for non-compliance.
Can I tow or reposition the caravan myself?
Caravans must be towed or repositioned by Adelaide Affordable Caravan Hire staff only. If a caravan is required to be repositioned whilst on-hire, this will attract an additional fee.
