On vacation in New Zealand for a long time and enjoy adventure using Campervan

I have been on vacation in New Zealand for a long time and enjoy adventure using Campervan, but the opportunity just arrived at the end of this year. Opposite vacations will soon be realized, like an adventure, along with the island of New Zealand from North to South using Campervan without staying at a hotel. It really becomes a new empirical challenge to try, and not a few people say, have not become a true traveler if they have not enjoyed this adventure.

My husband and I concluded to work on a trip in the summer, so our argument concluded to go to New Zealand at the end of the year, as it is known that the season in New Zealand is inversely proportional to Europe. In the winter in Europe, in New Zealand in the summer, and vice versa, so it makes people who want to travel there may not get the costume wrong. Why choose summer? Even though it is summer, a number of places in New Zealand can still range below 12-13 degrees, not yet the wind is quite piercing, it can be imagined if winter is like, I’m afraid because the weather can’t enjoy the outdoors with all my heart’s content. The second, when the summer sunsets from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. night, so during the day long, I hope I can be more satisfied to feel the beauty of New Zealand’s natural beauty and this is true.

To understand the places to stay campervan there are sites and software that are quite helpful. Oh yes, you must not forget to prepare a License and an International Driving License. Especially for Campervan, the driver must be at least 21 years old. My advice is to make an international SIM only in Jakarta, the cost is not up to Rp. 300,000. If you create an International SIM in New Zealand, you can spend around 60 NZD (IDR 585,000). For the cost of renting Campervan, we get it equivalent to 144 NZD (Rp. 1,410,000) per day.

Initially, when we concluded that the holiday was using Campervan in New Zealand, I was pretty confused by the terms Motorhome, Campervan, and RV because everything almost looked the same. Coupled with the lack of information about driving with campervan to the point that we do not have a definite reflection for the convenience contained in the campervan, what is available (including rental costs) and what must be chartered or purchased. And finally, my husband and I pursued the answer.

So, for those of you who want to adventure in New Zealand, you need to know this. Difference between Motorhome, Campervan, Caravan, RV & Self Contained Vehicle:


Usually, the rear element is shaped like a long box, but the driver’s cabin is connected, aka the one with the rear cabin. Because the rear element is box-shaped, driving is like carrying a small truck. The facilities inside are comprehensive, such as convenience in living locations with capacities of 3 to 8 sleeping locations, toilets, kitchens, televisions, DVDs, coolers and heating


Usually in the form of a van that is 5 to 7 meters long with a capacity of 2 to 3 sleeping locations (2-3 berth). There is no significant driving challenge (in addition to the length), the driver’s cabin with the rear element is fused and compact, making it easier for mobility. These campervan facilities are equipped with toilets and kitchens, but some are not.


Is a cabin shaped box that does not have a machine, often when you want to use it for recreation it must be pulled by car to the destination.

Recreational Vehicle (RV)

Is a term used for vehicles that can be used for camping. Motorhome and campervan belong to the RV group.

Self Contained Vehicle

Vehicles that have sufficient clean water, toilets, showers, and tanks to separate water and dirt are sufficient so that when vehicles stay at camper sites that do not have easy toilets and showers, the wearer can still maintain the sanctity of the environment without leaving trash and dirt in that location. Self-contained vehicles in New Zealand are equipped with special stickers, where Campervan or Motorhome with this sticker can be free to stay at free camper sites marked with self-contained vehicles.

And, any info for convenience contained in Campervan and Motorhome is:

The capacity of this sleeping location is from 2-3 people. For the type of motorhome, there is often an extra double resting place in the upper element of the driver. Usually, campervan companies provide easy pillows and blankets that are included in the cost of rent, but there are also those who charge extra fees.

Goods Storage Cabinets & Shelves
Both for campervan and motorhome, there is a closet for clothes and a shelf that is not enough to store goods and cooking equipment. If the use of campervan is long, the items in the suitcase can be moved and bought

There is a kitchen sink for washing dishes, 2 – 4 size gas stoves, pots and frying pans, knives and cooking spoons, plates and tablespoons, napkins/hand wipes (sometimes some of which sponges wash dishes), until the oven and toaster. So cooking jobs have no obstacles because all devices are available.

Every motorhome or campervan is often equipped with a refrigerator to store food. So you don’t need to worry if there is food leftovers and ingredients can still be stored in the refrigerator.

For the type of motorhome, there are often 2 separate rooms between shower and WC and even the sink to the extent that space is quite roomy. Whereas Campervan, often the toilet is only one room. For shower and toilet combined (there is no ease of sink) and the narrowest size. In addition, portable waste tanks (WC) are available. Before using this portable toilet, it is filled with water and input the blue dirt-destroying powder. Usually, this blue powder has provided a number of sachets when we chartered campervan. If it is considered lacking, we can buy additional.

Some campervan companies provide free GPS and some are rented out. If you do not get a GPS, try to rent because it is very helpful and makes it easier on the trip.

Rest and bathing equipment
ntal facilities are often classified as a set of pillows, blankets, and towels. In accordance with the number of people in Campervan.
