My girlfriend and I are off to Oz at the start of January - looking to travel the East Coast in a campervan. The plan is to purchase one when we get there and was just wondering about the details. I've been looking at Gumtree Australia and it seems a reliable, well maintained camper is in the region of $5800 - $7000? Has anyone had experience purchasing a camper out there - is there a common rate for a good affordable camper?
Apart from say, Gumtree/Ebay are there other common places for travellers to purchase? I'm hoping we will catch travellers leaving and looking to sell as we arrive. Also - at the end of the journey, (if we keep the camper in good condition) hopefully we can recoup some money we paid - do they depreciate in value at all?
