In 2000, John Webb founded Wicked Campers in Brisbane, Australia. This once small Australian rental business has now grown to become a global camper van rental company. Today, locations include Australia, New Zealand, Europe, United States of America, Chile, Japan, and Africa.
Although considered controversial to some because of rude and offensive references and slogans painted on the exteriors of its camper vans, Wicked continues to grow and thrive.
