MotorHomes In New Zealand

Hire a camper van or MotorHome for you New Zealand tour. Campervan hire is becoming very popular. A camper van gives you the freedom to take each day as it comes. Roam the country, finding beautiful and remote places to park and picnic.

Overnight you’ll find it convenient to book a powered site in a holiday park or camping ground. The kitchen, laundry and bathroom facilities are handy and many sites have great positions at the edge of a lake or by the beach. Free camping may be possible, but it’s wise to check with the local information centre before you park for the night.

Daily camper rental rates vary according to the season and are based on unlimited kilometres per day. Other costs include insurance and a bond that is refundable at the end of your holiday. For travel during summer and autumn, it’s best to book your motorhome before you arrive in New Zealand. The usual minimum age to rent a motorhome is 21 years.

New Zealand Motor Caravan Association
The New Zealand Motor Caravan Association was founded in 1956, and has grown from a small club to a large association. Our aims are to travel our country enjoying all the beautiful places that New Zealand has to offer. To promote the self propelled caravan movement by improving the conditions for motorhoming throughout New Zealand. To encourage motor caravan owners to make their vehicles self contained, taking pride in keeping our country clean.

With more than 30,000 members, and over 17,098 vehicles ranging from converted buses to motorhomes to commercially built campervans, there are members the length and breadth of New Zealand.

Over the years the Executive have worked for better conditions for our members, in particular the development of a self-containment scheme which has now been adopted by the Standards Council as the official self-containment standard for motor caravans and caravans.

The majority of our members’ motorhomes are used for recreational purposes during the holidays or on the weekends. There are a few who choose to use their motor caravans for permanent living. While many of these have ‘normal’ jobs, others are on the road, often working in orchards or market gardens during harvest time.

There are people of all ages and from all walks of life in the NZMCA who enjoy the outdoor life, our lakes, rivers, bush and beaches and take pride in caring for our environment.
