Campervan Details

Our Motorhome Bobby will let you travel in style and comfort. Enjoy travelling with 2 fixed beds and a large dinette that can be converted into a third double bed.

While the vehicle is fully self-contained for 6 people, we do however feel that the vehicle is more appropriate for 4 – 5 people as the dinette area is shorter and not very wide and more appropriate for 1 small child.

The camper includes a separate toilet and shower, water and grey water tank and solar panels, which means it’s suitable for freedom camping.

Driving:

2 super comfy seats in the cabin, powerful engine, air conditioning in the driving cabin and cruise control let you travel in style while the kiddies can enjoy a movie via USB or DVD in the comfortable dinette area. 2 Isofix anchor points ensure safe travels for your little ones.

The vehicle is fully automatic and can be driven on a car license.

Living:

Dinette area that comfortably sits up to 4 people and can convert into a third bed if needed, the table extensions and 2 stools will allow up to 6 people to sit. TV with USB and DVD player provides entertainment for the whole family. With a powerful heater, Bobby let’s you explore NZ even in the coldest winter without getting cold. Solar panels and gas ensure that you have power and warm water even when freedom camping.

Beds:

Rear bed: 2.15m x 1.28m – can sleep 2 adults

Bed in dinette: 1.25m x 1.86m – best suited for children

Overcab bed: 2.09m x 1.6m – can sleep 2 adults or 3 children comfortably

Kitchen:

Sink, 3 Burner Gas Hob, Oven with Grill, fully kitted out with everything you need and plenty of storage for your food.

Bathroom:

Separate shower with instant hot water, proper toilet, lots of storage for all the toiletries.

Storage:

The large storage compartment that is accessible from the inside and the outside means that you don’t need to leave any of your toys at home.

Outdoor:

Outdoor tables and chairs, bike rack for up to 4 bikes (no Ebikes!) and pull out awning are just a few of the awesome features of Carly.

All you need to bring are your clothes and some groceries and you are ready for your next adventure.

Pickup & Drop Off in Beachlands/East Auckland – approx 40min from the airport or we can arrange a Shuttle Service from/to the airport for $100 each way (payable directly to the shuttle servicer).

Quick Drop Off Option:

In a rush to get going? Choose the “Clean the Van for me including toilet” and we will take care of emptying the grey water & cassette and the cleaning for you.

    Frequently Asked questions

    We understand that time is often limited and you want to see as much as possible. While our rates reflect Pick up and Drop Off in Auckland, we do accomodate One Way Hires to Wellington, Nelson and Christchurch on a case by case basis. Please contact us with your desired travel dates and we will provide you with a quote for a One Way Hire. 

    Absolutely. All of our campers are certified to be self contained.

    • Our campervans are equipped with solar panels, harnessing the power of the sun to charge the leisure battery during the day. This means you have a continuous supply of electricity to run your appliances, lights, and heating system even when you’re away from traditional power sources. 
    • Self-Sufficient Water Systems: We understand the importance of having access to fresh water and managing waste responsibly while freedom camping. That’s why our campervans are equipped with fresh water and grey water tanks. You can enjoy the convenience of a built-in sink, tap, and shower, knowing that your water needs are met and waste is contained. Our separate toilet and shower facilities ensure privacy and hygiene, allowing you to fully embrace the freedom camping experience.
    • Gas Bottles: All of our campers come with a full gas bottle, that allows you to cook independently, heat the water and heat the campervan while out in nature.

    There is no limit on how many days you can freedom camp. As the campervans charge their battery during the day, you will have power permanently. You will need to empty the grey water and toilet every couple of days and top up the fresh water as well as the gas.

    New Zealand has public dumping stations all over the country. These are free and open 24/7. The free Campermate App shows you the locations of dumping stations. Dumping Stations usually have fresh water as well, but note that most of the time this is not suitable for drinking and should only be used for washing.

    That absolutely depends on the number of people travelling with you and your habits. With 4 people showering and doing the dishes twice a day, and using the toilet, the water and toilet lasts about 2 days. With 2 people and only mini showers you might be able to stretch the water to 4 days. 

    The gas lasts usually for at least a week if you are heating a lot, much longer if you don’t use much heating.

    The free Campermate App has a range of Freedom Camping Sites. You can also search on Google Maps by zooming in on the area that you are looking and type in “freedom camping”. This will often bring up additional freedom camping spots.

    All of our campervans come equipped with a power lead that let’s you plug in at a campsite.

    While freedom camping you can use all of the appliances, USB ports and any 12v equipment. The 240v power points only work when connected to power at a campsite.

    All of our campervans have an outdoor table and 6 camping chairs.

    Yes. The security bond depends on your chosen insurance package and the respective excess. If you have the basic insurance, your excess is $7500, if you have the premium insurance, then the excess is $1000.

    Unfortunately pre-authorisation only lasts for 30 days, so for trip less than 30 days, we pre-authorise your credit card and only charge the bond if you have an accident or damage. For trips longer than 30 days we do require the bond to be paid in cash or credit card and this will be refunded at the end of your trip.

    Rental charges for rental campervans, motorhomes & recreational vehicles are calculated per calendar day, regardless of the actual pick-up time. Charges for rental cars are based on a 24-hour period.

    No, the campervans do not have Wifi, however we offer the Wifi as an add on with unlimited data for $10/ day.

    Get unlimited wireless internet on the road* with an onboard router. Wifi is a better solution than a mobile data plan for most users because

    • It typically has better coverage than mobile phone networks which mostly have good coverage in populated areas but can be limited elsewhere.
    • You can connect multiple devices and, with a range of about 20 metres, you can be online inside or outside your motorhome.
    • It usually works out significantly cheaper
    • Subject to coverage and fair us

    All listed drivers must be at least 25 years old and have had a valid full license for at least 12 months. Your driver’s license must allow vehicles up to a GVM of 3.5t. You will be asked to present you driver’s license at vehicle collection.

    • A translation service approved by the NZ Transport Agency)
    • A diplomatic representative at a high commission, embassy or consulate, or the authority that issued your overseas license.

    New Zealand law stipulates that all children under seven years of age must use an approved child restraint appropriate for their age and size.

    We have child seats and booster seats available. Our campers Carly, Bobby and Harry have ISOFIX. 

    Don’t worry, we have very comprehensive training videos that make you a Campervan Pro in no time. They cover everything from using the fridge, heating, emptying the grey water, using the cassette etc. Check them out here: Training Videos

    If you have NOT selected the “Quick Drop Off” Option, we expect the following has been done before returning the camper:

    • Empty the grey water.
    • Empty the toilet cassette.
    • Fill up fresh water.
    • Clean the camper inside including hob, oven, fridge, toilet, shower ( We do not expect you to wash the sheets or clean the outside).
    • Fill up the tank.
    • Fill up the gas bottle.
    • Empty the fridge and all groceries.
    • Empty the rubbish.
    • Do the dishes.

    Should you have selected the “Quick Drop Off” Option, we expect the following has been done before returning the camper:

    • Fill up the tank.
    • Fill up the gas bottle.
    • Empty the fridge and all groceries.
    • Empty the rubbish.

    Yes, you are welcome to leave your car parked outside of our property on the road. If you prefer secure parking, we do have a carpark available at a close by storage facility for $10 a day.

    We do not offer delivery of the campervans to the airport as it is very hard to do the training and handover there. We have an arrangement with a local shuttle service to transport our guests to and from the airport for $110 each way, payable directly to the shuttle. Hotel transfers can be quoted on request. We are happy to arrange the transport for you. 

    Yes, you will have roadside assistance through AA. 

    If the Campervan breaks down, or has a mechanical problem that cannot be mobilised at scene, the AA will tow the campervan to the nearest place of safety or repair, where arrangements for its repair can be made or where it can be safely stored. Breakdown service does not cover any breakdown cost due to incorrect fuel, lost keys or if you have locked yourself out of the vehicle.

    Yes, all raised beds have a safety net to prevent your little ones falling out.

    Anyone using New Zealand’s roads contributes towards their upkeep. Most road users pay levies when they buy fuel. Others, such as drivers of light diesel vehicles and heavy vehicles like trucks, pay through road user charges (RUC). Road User Charges will be calculated based on the kilometers that you have travelled. During the handover we take note of the odometer at the start of your trip and then calculate the distance travelled when you return the campervan. Road User Charges are charged at $9/100km travelled and can be paid in cash or via credit card at the end of your trip.
