Holiday park turns away Wicked vans

NOTORIOUS campervan company Wicked Campers is under renewed pressure to curb explicit and derogatory slogans on its vehicles, and a Rainbow Beach holiday park has revealed they refuse entry to the most offensive vans.

A staff member at Rainbow Beach Holiday Village and Caravan Park said managers had been forced to turn away “half a dozen or more” customers in the past few years because the slogans on their hired vans were too obscene.

Do you agree the Wicked vans should be turned away from Caravan Parks because they’re too offensive? Tell us below.

“During the winter months we have a lot of elderly people staying here,” she said.

“They’re offended and we’re offended, and we’ve actually refused entry.

“It’s only been the very offensive ones that we turn away.”

RACQ has called on the Queensland Government to force Wicked Campers to comply with numerous orders from the Advertising Standards Bureau, which so far have been ignored.

“We’re saying very clearly to the State Government something needs to be done to hold this company, who are registered in Queensland, to account,” RACQ executive general manager of advocacy, Paul Turner said.
