You love travelling independently then a New Zealand camper van or sleeper van might be just the solution. Travel West Auckland and the country at your own pace. Let yourself get side tracked wherever it pleases. Most of all enjoy always having the very essentials with you for having tea at a particular beautiful spot.
A sleeper van also called bedmobile usually comfortably sleeps two adults. Equipped with camping chair and cooking utensils it gives travellers the freedom of flexibility to explore the country on their own terms. A bit more comfort is found in a New Zealand camper van that comes additionally with gas cooking facility, fridge, and water tank.
Our trusted family auto mechanic and friend Hein Vankan and his wife Willy run the van rental company Mountain Rentals. The family owned company rents out New Zealand camper vans and sleeper vans to independent traveller. His fleet comprises of Toyota Lite Ace, Town Ace and Toyota Hiace. Each sleeps comfortably two adults.
Freedom camping is regulated in each region of New Zealand differently. However there are plenty camp grounds to choose from in tourism centres or more remote where powered or non powered sites are available.
They grant ideal conditions to cruise along from one scenic attraction to another and spend the night comfortably at any camping park. Best of all, the tedious task to put up and down a tent after each change of location can be spent with more exciting things like making new friends, exchanging travel highlights or just having a drink with your New Zealand camper van neighbour.
The minimum sleeper van rental is for 14 days or 6 days for a New Zealand camper van with return to starting point. With depots in Auckland and Christchurch it is easy to start touring the Islands for 21 days and more. Explore either from north to south or vice versa. At request Hein also takes care to pre-book the ferry transfer from Wellington or Picton for you. A smooth and convenient arrival is granted with Hein’s airport pick-up service.
