We hired the Gr8 Escape for the last 2 weeks of August and had a Gr8 experience!! ;)
I had spent alot of time looking at all different campervans and the different layouts to best suit us for our trip. There were 2 adults and a 12 month old, so we wanted to make sure there was suitable space for our trip (Pram + snowboard gear included). I was happy when I found Iconic and the Gr8 Escape as it looked like it could suit us. With bunks at the back and a drop down bed over the seating area it seemed it would work well. We were able to put the baby in the bottom bunk at the back (the guys at Iconic were able to put a makeshift guard across the opening making sure he wouldn't roll out at night, which made us a whole lot more comfortable). And we were able to stow our bags on the top bunk. We also wanted to make sure that we could put the 1 year old to bed while still having a place to sit inside (especially being winter). There was a curtain that could be pulled across between the bunks and the kitchen area so that worked perfectly.
We had the camper for 9 nights and only plugged into electricity for 3 of those nights, we had the gas heating on and didn't end up needing to start the 2nd bottle. I think the well fitted thermal blinds made a huge difference keeping the camper warm (again, especially during winter). Kitchen was great with and oven, 3 burner stove and a big fridge + freezer. Comparing our camper to others we saw driving around it definitely wasn't the longest/biggest and was easy enough to drive around and park.
The company were easy to deal with with quick responses for any questions we had leading up to our visit. We will be using Iconic and the Gr8 Escape when we come back to see the North of the South Island and the North Island!!

Second time travelling around The South Island 11 years apart. I'm 55, my parter a little younger. Back end of Winter, last two weeks in August. Decided to go for total comfort this time. Iconics Rio Black 6m length Motorhome was brilliant for two. Freedom camping or plugged in, it gave us everything we needed. Iconic were fantastic. 'Iconic' translate to Richie who set us on our way relaxed and responded via WhatApp incredibly promptly when we needed a bit of help with minor issues. Highly recommend and would use again at the drop of a hat. Thanks Richie. (Iconic) Keef & Nadene. Hope to return again.

Iconic provided an absolutely incredible service. A great vehicle, friendly staff, a thorough explanation on how to use facilities and plenty of refreshments during our visit. What stands out most was their customer service. They made significant effort to provide the best possible service at all times. I would thoroughly recommend Iconic Motorhomes.
We recently returned from a 7 day trip in an Escape Camper Van hired from Iconic Motor Homes. Travelling with two teenage boys was ideal in the escape - they could have individual beds at the rear of the van. Luisa was our point of contact at Iconic and did a really fantastic job organising the hire. She answered all our emails, helped with a few hitches paying across the Tasman and spoke from personal experience on touring around NZ and Australia. At pickup, she explained how the van operated and was great to deal with – very clear and kept it simple - we were in holiday mode so couldn't think too much!
We felt really confident dealing with her and Iconic - and didn't feel like all the burden of labour had been shifted onto the customer - as is usual with bigger companies.
We can highly recommend Iconic and especially Luisa.
We hired the Sundance for 2 weeks last year. This compact but luxury camper was perfect for the two of us touring the south island at the end of winter/early spring. The heating in the van was amazing, the kitchen and equipment were all in good condition as well as the bathroom and couch/bed. The van was small enough to fit in a standard outdoor car park which made stopping in towns very accessible. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout the booking and travel process, which helped avoid a lot of stress. There was a great range of extra's available to add on such as a power inverter, camp chairs and movie packs. This van was far nicer than some of the others we looked at, on top of having features like satellite television, an oven, and ultra-comfy driving seats, Iconic do not charge Road User Charges nor Mileage at the end of your holiday, so there are no hidden costs, and make it on par with some of the other "budget" style vans that are nowhere near as nice as the Sundance. We have already booked our second trip with Iconic to tour the North Island this year. Highly recommend the team and vans at Iconic.
I cannot speak highly enough of Iconic Motorhomes. From our very first interaction with the business, each and every person we encountered was beyond pleasant and helpful. There was literally nothing that was too much to ask of the Iconic Motorhomes team.
In particular, team leader Richy was a stand out. Upon collection of our motorhome, he was so diligent and patient in showing us the ins and outs of the vehicle so that we could feel confident in travelling around, and therefore able to get the best from our trip. He answered all our questions with a smile and provided us not only with an easy to use guide for the motorhome, but also the reassurance that he was contactable at any time should we need assistance. You do not find customer service like this very often these days and we were thoroughly delighted. Thank you Richy!
In terms of the vehicle itself, we hired the Rio Black motorhome. It was absolutely perfect for the two of us on our roadtrip. Comfortable, warm, economical and user friendly, this motorhome was the ultimate way to experience the stunning beauty that New Zealand has to offer. If you are thinking of travelling to New Zealand, I cannot recommend the Rio Black through Iconic Motorhomes more highly!

Our last rental with Iconic Motorhomes has been the 2nd this year, so thought its about time to review .From the first email contact service has been prompt and professional.
There are many motorhome rental companies in New Zealand and many motorhomes on the road, but they are certainly not all the same.What you receive from Iconic is more like a luxury hotel on wheels. Both of our rentals were 3-4 weeks ,the swift motorhomes are well suited to New Zealand designed to handle European conditions ,we had -4 at Mt Cook and inside the gas heating was sensational.The Fiat Ducato is easy to drive especially on the windy roads of NZ and not heavy on fuel.We were looked after on both rentals by Luisa in Auckland,who meticulolsy ran us through the workings of the vehicles,we had no issues with our vehicles ,fridges,stoves ,12 volt systems when off grid ,even the auto sat dish worked effortlessly.l would not hestitate to recommend Iconic Motorhomes and have referred several Australian customers to them..........and will return to Iconic next March.

My wife and I recently hired an Iconic Rio motorhome for an 8 day trip around the top of the South Island. The vehicle was excellent to drive and handled some extremely challenging roads including Queen Charlotte Drive and the Takaka Hill, as well many open roads at 100km. This vehicle was superb, its cruise control set at the speed limits ensured safe travel, and was very economical. It handled the hills without causing traffic build ups behind, and held well in the gears in the down hill sections requiring minimal braking.
From a comfort perspective it was perfect, the seating was comfortable, the bed very comfortable, and the onboard facilities excellent, allowing us to cook most of the meals while we were away onboard. The heating, both when driving and stationary was excellent, and as we were traveling in winter, early June, the overnight temperatures were cool but we were very snug inside with the satellite TV.
We could highly recommend these mobile homes for comfort, warmth, ease of use and cost and will use them again when we travel to avoid the hassles of Motels. We would give these superb little mobile homes a 10/10 rating, and together with a very helpful staff they made this holiday experience memorable.
