Considering that we drive on the right hand side in North America, our group decided to ask our friends at Rankers to help us find units that were guaranteed to be automatic transmission vehicles. Most of our group have experience driving standards, but thought that shifting gears would just add another element of danger for us - as we maneuvered large/wide vehicles on narrow curvy roads - driving on the "wrong side". Therefore, we decided to rent our motorhomes from Britz Campervans. We got midrange Maui, 6 pax campervans. The Britz depot is a short courtesy bus ride from the Auckland Airport International terminal. A taxi ride was $20 for those of us who missed the last bus of the day.
One thing that we should have brought with us was adapters for 12V socket in the dash of your vehicle back home - for charging cell phones. We bought some once we figured out that freedom camping meant no electrical plug ins. Therefore, we could only charge while driving and thus we rarely "freedom camped" - as we all needed to charge iPads and cell phones, so we needed to plug in at a camp site. Be sure to download "Rankers Camping NZ" app on your android or iPhone to look up good camp sites in each area you are heading to. Most "good " camp sites have great showers and laundry facilities. Also, download "Gaspy" which is the same concept as Gas Buddy in North America. You can look up the best price for diesel before you need to fill and get to the best price in the area.
As far as our campervan units, they were clean and nicely stocked with everything we needed for camping. The kitchen table area turned into a bed that was too short for a 5' 8" adult. Maybe children only in that bed. The bed over the cab and at the back of the units were large enough for 6' tall couples. The mattress we slept on at the back of the unit was truly not comfortable. Most nights we slept well, but woke up aching.
New Zealand is so worth it! Locals consider April winter. It was 20C!!

Organised a medium, self-contained campervan with Britz and got a brand new Hiace van, very well set up for travelling and living in and good customer service.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Fast and easy checkout and checkin experience. The campervan was clean and easy to use. We loved the campervan experience and would highly recommend this as the way to see New Zealand.
We arranged to pick the van up between 11am & 12pm, however, the van wasn't ready until 2.30pm. The wait was disappointing, however, they did upgrade us to a Maui van which was excellent. Staff very friendly & helpful.
Loved the van, was very well equipped. However, it was a six sleeper & was very expensive so this was to be expected.
Bathroom floods but overall nice quality More information needed on how to drive it.
Good campervan and good service.
