I thoroughly recommend these vans

As experienced caravanners from Australia, we thoroughly investigated what was available in campervan hire in New Zealand before deciding on hiring two “Bay of Islands” Campervans, and we were not disappointed.
The service from Nick and Rob left nothing to be desired, both on the booking of our vans over the internet and on our arrival in New Zealand. We hired the vans for the month of April 2012 and flew into Auckland where we were met by Nick and taken up to Piahia to their B&B, provided with dinner and breakfast, and excellent accommodation for 2 nights. A discussion on what sights to see, how to pronounce certain Maori names and other travelling tips was given in a friendly family atmosphere over those 2 nights whilst we waited for our second van to arrive.
The nifty 5.5m vans were excellent for 2 people, with modern fittings that would enable you to do “free camping” if you desired, and so save on those fees charged by the caravan parks. I particularly enjoyed the built in Wi-Fi facility of the vans and so I was able to use the internet whenever I needed to with my IPad, that I had brought with me. Nick and Rob also provide a laptop, mobile phone, and a “Tourist Radio” coupled with a handy GPS Navigator, that assists in getting you to your next destination without any problems.
Also provided were free camp chairs, table, portable BarBQ, and a van awning, for which many other hirers charged extra. The power of the van’s diesel motor, combined with its excellent economy and the van’s length of 5.5M, made for easy travelling in city traffic and around the winding coastal roads in the North Island, where some of the bigger vans could not venture.
I thoroughly recommend these vans and the service provided by Nick and Rob, if you are contemplating a trip to New Zealand.
