Brisbane‐based Wickers Campers currently has 944 rental campervans operating in Australia,
including 611 Queensland registered vans currently on the nation’s roads.
Wicked founder and director John Webb said today the safety of the company’s vehicles was its
absolute top priority.
“Wicked Campers takes the safety of its fleet very seriously and we have co‐operated closely with the Queensland Department of Transport to ensure all our vehicles are safe,’’ Mr Webb said.
“We have recently voluntarily deregistered around 50 vans and are also in the process of introducing 500 upgraded vehicles over the next year. This will phase out all pre‐2004 vans in our fleet.’’
Mr Webb said he was very disturbed by reports suggesting that most of the company’s vehicle fleet had been taken off the road.
“In contrast, about five percent of our fleet has been voluntarily deregistered, which is generally in line with car rental industry standards,’’ he said.
“Wicked has almost 950 vans still on the road around Australia, including more than 600 registered in Queensland.
“It is very much business as usual for Wicked – providing a safe and fun‐filled holiday for thousands of tourists.’’
