Vehicle is very economical to run.We travelled 4164 kms and averaged 11.57 kms to the litre.
Driver comfort is great .The only problem we had was getting use to the position of the windscreen wipers and turn indicators on the steering column.
Everything worked well .We used the external barbecue a lot .The fridge size was adequate to store enough food for up to a week .The freezer is a little small but operated well.The GPS did not work very well and the radio cd player was not operable until we returned to Brisbane.No documents were supplied with the vehicle to help .On the fourth day of our holiday a side window behind the drivers seat was smashed by a rock from a passing truck. We were unble to get it replaced and I had to make temporary repairs with a piece of plastic and some gorilla tape which lasted until our return to Brisbane some 23days later.
The walkway between the bathroom and kitchen was only wide enough for one person and if you wished to get past the other person had to move up to the cab.The vehicle had lots of storage space but the wardrobe was very small and was only kitchen cupboard height.
We only stayed in caravan parks to wash clothes and top up with water every 4 or 5 days .We camped out the other nights.This vehicle did not come with a television only a dvd cd radio player .

This is the second time I have hired the Maui Ultima in 2020 for travel around WA and I still think it is a roomy and versatile interior space to work with. The Mercedes is wonderful and easy to drive and handles any weather & road conditions really well. The bbq again was used alot, the barn doors at the back opened to let the country breeze through each morning and afternoon & onboard toilet/shower combo is just big enough. Water pressure and temperature never let us down - always consistent & hot. We take a few extra luxuries like wooden duck boards for the shower & motorhome entry, memory foam mattress topper for the bed, our own pillows, doona & quick dry towels & generator to camp out.

check in a bit slow. Didnt really like hanging around the check in so long during covid times.

We hired the Maui Ultima and it was the best motorhome I have hired by far. The bbq was amazing, the barn doors being open for a view and fresh air was wonderful but it was the Merc van & how easy it was to drive that made this a very easy road trip. All the facilities were in very good condition & the pots & pans of top quality. I recommend the Ultima as an ideal motorhome for camping in parks or in areas with now power as the solar & 12v system work well. I enjoyed the Ultima so much that I have booked it again for another road trip next month.

the van performed very well and was economical. Only difficulty was with the Nav system which was fiddly to work and not very clear to see from the drivers seat. We chose not to take the easy fill option for fuel and gas as felt it was too pricey. We went to BCF to get our gas bottle refilled before dropping the van off and that was very simple. Perhaps people should be told where to refill gas bottles at instead of having to find out for ourselves.

Camper van was awesome. Definitely hire another one for next holiday. Had a malfunction with heater / air con and the staff in Alice Springs were wonderful. Got us back on the road the next morning. Thanks to them in Alice.

Great to drive. Highway driving was easier than I expected.
When everything worked it was very comfortable.
Wiring system in this newer model let it down.
No hot water for 4 of 22 days and the loss of at least half a day getting a new battery fitted was very
disappointing. Your help line people did the best they could to help, but as they said it was too new and no one really knew much about the wiring and switching system.
As I have said when everything worked the way it is supposed to it was very comfortable.

The vehicle (Mercedes) was comfortable to drive. The interior was easy to keep clean with a broom. It would have been good if we were supplied with two bath towels each instead of 1 and two tea towels, it’s not always easy to find a laundromat whilst travelling in WA, especially when you’re only hiring for 8 or 9 days. The bedding was ok, except the pillows were a bit soft for me. The seating that is used for the bed is a bit hard, so we put the supplied doona over the mattress and purchase a cheap doona for warmth. I understand why there is only enough crockery and cutlery for 3 people, as you need to clean up after each meal to avoid clutter. I think you need to do this type of holiday a couple of times to work out packing minimal is best and taking a soft bag for easier storage.
