Trip In A Van (TIAV) is about to hit the High Country with us on an EPIC 7 day tour, but before they do and just in case you’ve been living under a ROCK – we thought we’d share a little bit about them – who they are and why they’ve chosen to travel Australia for the last two years. We’ll also take a look at their schmicko BT50!
Justin and Bec Lorrimer have three children, sons 6 year old Jack, 4 year old Billy and 2.5 year old daughter Charli. They packed up their home and sold up from Newcastle, NSW in December 2015 to live the dream and they haven’t looked back!
Justin & Bec wanted a better life and to spend quality time with their kids. Little did they know how beneficial it would be for them AND for their kids! They describe “simplifying your life is one of the best feelings ever as well as being together. It’s had its moments but we wouldn’t change it for the world. It makes you stronger as a family and the memories made are priceless”
Travel while you’re young and able is the motto they LIVE by! They are without question living the DREAM!
When they set off on their adventure, they envisaged that they’d be taking all their photos and videos on their iPhones – like most people do when they’re on holiday’s right? When they became brand ambassadors for Jurgens Caravans, they invested in some quality camera gear and have created their OWN brand through their amazing content on their website, Facebook and Instagram pages.
TIAV now work closely with some other great brands in the industry as well. They have teamed up with Mazda Australia – ARB 4×4 –Jurgens Caravans – CaravanRvCamping and Camplify to promote the Touring lifestyle and inspire other young families to get on the road
