Our Hybrid


After much research, we decided on a hybrid, off road van - an Emu Explorer, and we love it. We are travelling around the country and only two months into the trip. At the start, we were towing with a Nissan Patrol but it died on the Gibb River Road - the caravan handled it fine. As we were stuck in Derby, we had to buy another vehicle unseen! It is a Volkswagen Amorok and so far, so good. What we love about the Emu is the comfortable bed, having an ensuite and plenty of storage. We also love having the outside kitchen as it still feels like camping. It is so easy to hitch up and set up, five minutes and it's ready to live in. We had a few teething problems as we bought new but the manager in Perth sorted them out quickly. We have not yet had an opportunity to use the annexe so that will be interesting to set up when we stay somewhere long term. As we sold up before we left WA, the Emu is now our home!

Not sure why I am having so much trouble editing my post but, to clarify, our van is an Emu Expedition not Explorer (don't know where I got that from!) and hopefully I have been able to upload photos now.

Thats a good looking setup. I love the size of these hybrids and have ordered one myself. A different brand to yours, but a hybrid all the same.

We love our van. We are currently in the NT and have spoken to others with different makes of hybrids. All are really enjoying them. Happy Travels.
