Kea Campervans 

Hi Top 2-berth

This is a small campervan with an extensive list of features. With a HiTop fibreglass roof, large windows and ample internal space, this van is a light and airy option for your next dream van adventure! Troop seating in the rear offers a generously sized dining space, which easily and quickly transforms into a spacious rear bed.

Rear access through the tailgate door also provides more versatility for large items. It also has all the creature comforts you need to cook up a storm on the road with its fridge, freezer, microwave and gas stove. Storage in the roof of this Kea campervan also makes it a super-versatile option for those who prefer to travel light. 


FAQs - Kea

Depending on the layout and size of your motorhome or campervan, there are four common options chosen by our customers. The first is a convertible lounge bed. This bed converts from a dinette or sofa into a bed. The benefit of these is that you have all the convenience of a lounge and only use the bed when needed.

The second is a flip bench bed. Flipping up a folded extension transforms a bench seat into a bed. The third option is a drop-down bed. During the day, it is stored at ceiling height, then lowered electrically or manually at night.

The last option is a fixed bed. As the name suggests, it is a permanent bed that stays made up and ready for sleep. These are best suited to motorhomes with plenty of space and are usually at the rear of a vehicle. 

Most motorhomes have two main batteries. One battery is in the engine and powers the starter motor just like your regular car. The other is what’s called a 12V ‘deep cycle’ battery. This 12V battery is one way to power your motorhome, the other is by plugging your motorhome into shore power (240-volt power) via a campsite shore power unit. Being more powerful than your 12V battery means it can power more energy-hungry items like your microwave. It’s also the easiest way to charge your 12V battery while also powering your motorhome. 
A 12V deep cycle battery powers most of your RV including the water pump, stove-top ignition and the lights when you’re away from the campsite. It will generally last two to three days before it needs to be recharged. You’ll need to make sure the isolator is on to draw power from it — it’s generally a square-looking switch that has a large knob that you can turn into the ‘on’ position. 

One way you can charge your 12V battery other than with shore power is with a generator, and some RVs have one built-in. If not, you can buy them separately. Essentially, they plug into your RV and act the same as shore power does. Although not quite as powerful, it is very effective at charging your 12V battery and running most appliances. Just bear in mind that external generators can be quite loud and will often keep you and your neighbouring campers awake at night. 

The second way to charge your 12V battery is with solar panels. They are a popular method of charging batteries due to the amount of sunny weather we enjoy in Australia, and they are one of the most common modifications we are asked to carry out. Solar panels are particularly efficient as they are always charging when the sun is out. However, they can only charge your 12V battery and not power your motorhome directly.
