All Camplify Vans are strictly prohibited to go Off-Road unless you as the van owner provides permission in writing to take that van off-road, and you are aware of the destination and route your hirers are traveling.

Please Note:  While many of our Vans are able to be taken on corrugated roads or the beach, there are some additional precautions that must be taken into consideration before approval.

  1. Is your vehicle built for offroad travel?
  2. Do you include items and safety gear in case of offroad maintenance?
  3. Are you aware of your hirer's offroad knowledge and vehicle capability?
  4. Are your hirers traveling alone?
  5. Are you aware of the route and road conditions? 

Off-Road travel comes with a higher risk of damage. 

We encourage both owners and hirers to sign Camplifys Off-Road Checklist at the time of hand over. This is an additional document that provides clarity and clear expectations of where the van is going whilst on hire and the condition required on return. 

We want all our hirers to have a great time while away and to do that we advise owners to discuss the suitability and inclusions of the van for offroad travel and the type of tow vehicle for their requested off-road adventure prior to approval.

If you are thinking about letting your van go off-road? Here are some important things to remember whenever you are considering an off-road booking.


  • Destination and itinerary 
    It is vital that you not only discuss the destination with your hirer, but that you also have a good understanding of the route they will be taking. Please do plenty of research before approving a route. (Top tip: If you have not completed the route yourself, ask other owners in the Facebook Owners Group if any of them have travelled via that route in the past)
  • Location, location, location 
    We strongly recommend installing a GPS device into your van if you are allowing it to go off road. This allows you to know where they are and importantly if they have stuck to the agreed-upon itinerary.
  • Suitability 
    it is important to only allow your van to go off-road if it was designed to do so. Non-off-road vans are much more likely to be damaged when traveling off road and this may not be covered by insurance. 
  • Maintenance 
    You must ensure your van has been serviced recently and that other necessary maintenance, eg tyres, has been completed.
  • Preventative measures 
    Due to the nature of off-road travel, there is a high likelihood that the van will incur incremental damage from stone chips, debris and/or sandblasting. In order to reduce the risk of this damage, we strongly recommend taking preventative measures, such as installing a stone guard to the front of the van.
  • Wear & tear 
    Due to the unavoidable risk of stone chips, debris and/or sandblasting when traveling off road, ‘Wear & Tear’ is not covered for off-road bookings.
  • Off-Road Checklist 

In order to add an extra layer of protection to each off-road booking, we recommend that owners and hirers complete our “Off-Road Checklist” during the handover in addition to the Pre Hire Checklist. This ensures that both parties are in complete agreement over the route and fully aware of the potential risks.
