Cosy Campers’ stylish Mercedes campervan conversion is the brainchild of Mariangela and Mike Virtue, a husband and wife team with a passion for design, travel, nature and adventure.
We both grew up in Byron Bay, so the coastal areas of Northern NSW and South East Queensland are very close to our hearts. When we moved to Brisbane to raise our family and work in the design industry, we still wanted to travel back to Byron, as well as seek out new adventures in this amazing part of the world.
So we started looking for a campervan we could take to a different place every weekend. But all we could find were grubby backpacker buses and sterile, mass-produced mega-vans with as much atmosphere as sleeping in the back seat of your car.
That’s why we decided to build our own.
We designed our campervan conversion to be natural and organic, with solar panels, reclaimed timber details and a breezy Southern Californian vibe. But we also appreciate creature comforts, so we kitted it out with a comfy bed, high-end linen, a quality sound system and plenty of insect protection. It’s a cosy and luxurious home away from home that we can take anywhere the wind blows us.
Australia has some of the best camping facilities in the world, from secluded national park sites to beachfront campgrounds with million dollar views. Our Cosy Camper lets us experience it all in easy-going elegance and incredible comfort.
And you can do the same! We’re delighted to share our handcrafted Cosy Camper with other travellers by making it available for campervan hire from Brisbane. You too can discover the wonders of Queensland and NSW in this truly luxurious motorhome.
