We had a 6 berth motorhome and we travelled over 2000 kms in 10 days. While the driver and front passenger can see (have unobstructed views of scenery), people sitting in the rear - in very uncomfortable bench seats - have very obstructed views. In fact, you can not see anything. If you are a child, it is even worse. These seats are around the table have no support and are very uncomfortable. We had no idea that only people in the front of the van would be able to see. Apart from that, the van was reliable. It was tidy but not really clean on pick up ie: we found used tissues in the door and a used water bottle and dirty socks under the seat. It was well equipped but the radio /dvd player didnt work. Some of the cupboards needed fixing. Everything else - ie: hot water/toilet, worked well and we had no problems with that. People also need to realise that the beds are very small, so if you are a bigger person, it may not be very comfortable for you.
even though the LCD TV fell out of its place, and hit my feet, but the overall experience of touring south NZ using MAUI sunset was worth all the sweats and tears!
Sunset unit was just nice and serve well for our family size, 5 of us, with 3 kids. 2 of them with carseats and 1 with car booster.
all main functions work well, the heater, the toilet, the hood and range (as i was incharged of the main cab), while my husband enjoyed driving the big Benz's unit.

we rented a camper from Maui in March 2016. Pickup and return in Christchurch. We got a VW Crafter (self contained - group ML8) which had 140.000 km on its tacho (about 5 years old). The advertising brochure says: "a young fleet - not older than 2 years." We had many technical problems (e.g. broken battery) so we had to go to a workshop and lost a day of our vacation time. Although the rental fee was not cheap. Finally we can't recommend to hire a motorhome at Maui.
Our 6 berth campervan was awesome. Had everything we could possibly need. Driving was comfortable and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us. The diesel heater meant we didn't notice the cold and the battery easily lasted 2 nights of free camping even though we ran lights and TV etc.

Our camper van (Maui Platinum Beach Motorhome) was an excellent vehicle. The service at pick-up and drop-off was efficient. It was a newer vehicle and everything mechanical worked very well. It seemed to have plenty of power and was also good on gas. The interior was a nice layout and very functional for our family. We appreciated the 2 big beds, and the lovely kitchen and eating space. I might advise if you are travelling to the Coromandel Peninsula you might want a smaller vehicle because the roads are twisty with very little for shoulders.

Fully functional, but we had to return to Christchurch as several items were missing.
We at Rankers NZ, love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why Rankers NZ invites you to come and stay for free at our chill riverside overnight parking area in the Motueka Valley at the top of the South Island.
