- Comfortable seating arrangements
- Air-conditioned interiors
- Charging points
- Music system
- Kitchenette with stove, utensils and basic foods

Planning A Caravan Holiday With Trippy Wheels
There are 4 caravans that can be booked for a holiday.
- Into the Wild: Seating/Sleeping Capacity: 3 people
- El Toro: Seating/Sleeping Capacity: 4 people
- El Zorro: Seating/Sleeping Capacity: 4 people
- Kanasu: Seating/Sleeping Capacity: 8 people
Each of these camper vans can be rented out for a minimum of 24 hours. There is no upper limit to the length of a camper holiday. In fact, the company offers discounts for longer rentals.
Trippy Wheels does not provide any planned itineraries. Instead, they encourage people to take offbeat routes and enjoy living in the moment. The caravans can be taken anywhere around Karnataka or the states around it. However, permits may be required when crossing state borders.

Understanding The Costs
Given that the seating/sleeping capacity of every camper van is different, pricing also varies.
Renting the Kanasu would cost Rs 9,999 per day while hiring the El Toro or the El Zorro would cost Rs 5,999 per day. This is exclusive of the driver’s daily allowance (Rs 400 per day) and fuel.
Trippy Wheels offers a 5% discount for rentals of 5 days or more, a 10% discount for rentals of 7 days or more and a 15% discount for rentals of 10 days or more. They offer special rates for rentals that are longer than a month.
