Our Story

Meet the team and find out more about our story.

Leisure Caravans is a business dedicated to helping others experience the freedom and adventure of caravan holidays without the upfront expense of purchasing their own van, we love to see the smiles on our customers' faces when they return from their best holiday ever!

 

Leisure caravans was started by Steph & Richard in 2017 after they completed a 3 month trip in their Franklin with their 2 young boys and began to realise that there would be many families that needed to take a break and refuel, just as they had.  With this in mind, they decided to offer their original Jayco Pop-top for others to hire, as well as the new Franklin. 

Feedback was great with 5-star reviews and testimonials from customers, so they started managing other people’s caravans. People who would like to make a bit of money from their vans but without the hassle, and very importantly, people who want their vans really well looked after while they’re away on hire.

 

Who we are

Sandy & Julie

A bit about us... For the past 20 plus years we have been flying aeroplanes around the world from Scenic flights around The Kimberley to Floatplanes in Canada.

Our married life saw us settling down as Airline Pilots here in Brisbane... until COVID-19 hit and we, along with all our colleagues were made redundant.

We have 2 children - Saige is 6 and Porter is 4, a much loved fur child - Timmy the Beaglier and a very aloof cat - Peeka.

When not in the air we were out on the road and have followed “the evolution of a caravaner” to a tee!

In 2010 we took our first trip together - a 3 week 4WD trip (in a tent) around outback SA/QLD. Sandy took the amazing opportunity of a water filled Lake Eyre to propose at sunset.

The following year was a trip across the Simpson Desert with a roof top camper.

Baby Saige came along and more space was needed so after sitting out a storm at the Brisbane Caravanning  Show (in a Stoney creek camper)...... we came home with one!

Next came a 3/4 pop top camper and finally to a 5 star fulled equipped Caravan! 

We’re not going back to a tent and hope that we can show you how great a glamping holiday is! 

So here we are – LEISURE CARAVANS – Glamping not camping….
