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.

My wife and I spent 12 days traveling around both islands in the Rio Black editions at the beginning of May and are extremely happy we decided to go with Iconic. Coordination and pick up with Luisa in Auckland was great and easy. Luisa is super friendly and helpful and made the hiring process very easy. Kay and the staff in Christchurch were great to coordinate with as well and very personable and genuinely cared about our adventure. The Rio Black Edition was perfect for just the two of us and very simple to operate and drive, especially on some of the narrow gravel roads we explored and camped down. We are already plotting to come back to visit New Zealand and will be sure to go with Iconic again. We have been telling all our friends and family that when they make the trip, to go with Iconic! Thanks again helping us with a great trip!

I cannot speak highly enough of Richy and his team at Iconic. We were traveling from the US and had 0 experience operating a campervan of this size, and Richy walked us through the whole thing! By the time we hit the road, I felt 100% confident. We ran into a problem with the check engine light flashing while on the road, and Richy answered his phone immediately and walked us through what was wrong. They had a welcome bag waiting for us when we got there and even gave us a postcard with a photo inside of us picking up the camper when we returned it! Richy was so friendly and helpful, working with him was truly one of the highlights of our trip. The camper itself (the Rio Black) was well-kept and sparkling clean. It was by far the nicest camper we looked at and was competitively priced. The bed was very comfortable. It was surprisingly easy to drive too! Thanks again Iconic!

So lovely to hear such positive comments
Thank you the team all appreciate your review.
If you have been searching for a Motorhome (campervan- although it is not a van in all the great ways) then search no further! I looked all of the web and looked at and read a lot of reviews and blogs and Iconic is absolutely the best that there is! We picked up our BOLERO BLACK EDITION motor home on April 17th - the day before my 33rd birthday and had it for 8 nights! Richy was our go-to person and he was awesome! Upon arriving to pick-up our Motorhome we got upgragded to a brand new Bolero for free with a larger bathroom than what was on the previous Bolero. It smelt new and was impeccably clean. I am OCD and so clean and new is exactly what I wanted. Another reason I went with Iconic and am happy with their homes! Richy walked us through everything. Since we are from the States we were nervous to rent a home that was 7 meters long and drive on the opposite side of the car and road...all being that we had never even driven anything bigger than a large SUV. But Richy walked us through everything. And there was notes and videos. And while we were cruising the South Island - a few questions we had came up and Richy was able to be reached via calling, texting, or messaging and helped us out and answered everything promptly. I recommend getting the premium insurance. We did, and I am so glad we did because we accidentally ran over a possum and it broke a part on the bottom of our motorhome but since we had the premium insurance it was not a lot of money out of pocket to fix. One thing that I was grateful for (since I am OCD clean) was that I asked for an extra set of sheets and towels and they were given to us for free! That way 1/2 way through the trip we had fresh items. And we also received a Tom Tom GPS for free just for asking. The best part truly was how clean the motorhome was and how most everything you would need (pots, pans,bottle opener etc.) was already on board. We ate on the motorhome a few times and cooked spaghetti one night! Highly recommend! -Kate

When my wife and I chose to Caravan across New Zealand, Iconic Motorhomes gave us the ultimate experience in comfort, service and reliability. I know that sounds like an ad for them but they honestly were so helpful durring every step of our trip. Checking in at times to see how we were getting along with the Bolero Black Edition Motorhome.
Upon arrival (Auckland) and dropping off (Christchurch) the team was smart, easy going and friendly. A family feel but with a professional take on the equipment. Instructions were clear on the home and how to run it and to keep it in shape for a worry free trip, as well as how to drive in the left lanes of New Zealand. (Sing to yourself.... Dri'ving on the left, Dri'ving on the left...) Even over Easter weekend they were quick to respond to a question we had about Queenstown. (You have to see Queenstown)
All of their caravans are look top notch, brand new and in fantastic shape. Our Bolero was roomy with plenty of storage space. Linens, sheets, blankets, kitchen and bath towels felt brand new. Its kitchen was stocked with all the cooking tools we needed. Bathroom was the biggest you will find, with a separate shower. The water was hotter than ours at home with great water pressure. Bed was "medium" firm for great naps and sleeping after our hard hikes.
The Bolero provided us with everything we need for our 3 week tour of both Islands. GPS was a must and worked great. We also got the Movie package. (A hard drive with over a hundred movies) Worth it. Most campsites have poor internet.
We stayed at campervan sites the whole time but Free Camping was never out of reach. Driving the 7 meter Motorhome was tricky at first but both my wife and I got use to it fairly quickly.
We both highly recommend Iconic Motorhomes for your New Zealand road trip. You wont be disappointed.

We really appreciate your great review Kevin
Thank you so much

We had the most fantastic holiday - Iconic Motorhomes in Christchurch have the perfect blend of warmth and professionalism. Their little touches of hospitality didn't go unnoticed - a homely welcome pack, extra towels and blankets, regular emails touching base with us and a clean, warm and comfy camper made for a superb trip. Kathrin was excellent with her orientation and Ritchy was so helpful with our return, even showing us what we could look forward to next time if we decided to go bigger for the kids! We would not hesitate to recommend Iconic Motorhomes - they are a cut above the more well known commercial brands we have experienced in the past.

Super to hear such a positive review.

This company defines customer service and takes it to a whole new level. If I could give them an 11, I would. First of all, they have a best in class product. Our van was both state of the art and was outfitted with top of the line linens, glassware, pillows etc. It was like a 4 star hotel on wheels. In addition their support and sales people are outstanding. Richie was available to us 24/7 (if needed) and provided extraordinary small things like a welcome bag and thank you note. I know that might sounds trivial, but it is highly representative of their level of care. This was quite important to us as my 25 year old daughter and I were traveling from the US for two weeks alone. We had a spectacular trip that was possible in part by the experience we had with our camper. As this was a trip of a lifetime for us, I'm not sure we will be back but if we do, we will absolutely use Iconic Motorhomes again!

Many thanks for your outstanding review, its much appreciated by our team
We (2 persons) had a Bolero Black Edition from Iconic for 47 days, travelled 6.000 kms on South- and North Island and made our experiences with the vehicle as follows: If you look for a campervan with a high level of comfort and luxury and if you are prepared to spend some extra money for that, then the Bolero from Iconic will be the right choice. The automotive components of the Fiat Ducato worked without a single problem and the diesel-engine was really low in consumption. Manufacture date was November 2016 and the km reading was 62.500.
Unfortunately there were some problems with infrastructure components (water-pump, gas-feed, waste-level-sensor, ....), which annoyed us from time to time. Some problems I could fix by myself after visiting a hardware store. So if you are a good craftsman, you will have a lot of fun with the Bolero :-))
Special thanks to Julie for her support during presales, to Luisa for her excellent support during return of the vehicle and to Richie and Michael for the quick replacement of the water-pump at the Christchurch depot.
Wir (2 Personen) hatten einen Bolero Black Edition von Iconic für 47 Tage, reisten 6.000 km auf der Sued- und Nordinsel und machten damit folgende Erfahrungen: Wenn man einen Campervan sucht, der ein hohes Mass an Komfort und Luxus bietet, und wenn man bereit ist, dafür etwas mehr Geld auszugeben, dann wird der Bolero von Iconic die richtige Wahl sein. Die Fahrzeugkomponenten des Fiat Ducato funktionierten ohne das geringste Problem und der Dieselverbrauch war erstaunlich niedrig. Das Herstelldatum war November 2016 und der Kilometerstand war 62.500.
Leider gab es einige Probleme mit den Infrastrukturkomponenten (Wasserpumpe, Gaszufuhr, Brauchwassersensor, ....), die uns zeitweise ziemlich nervten. Einige Probleme konnte ich nach einem Besuch im Baumarkt selbst beheben. Wenn man also handwerklich nicht ungeschickt ist, kann man eine Menge Spass mit dem Bolero haben. :-))
Iconic Motorhomes responds:
Thank you for your well constructed review Gerd
Our maintenance and service programme of all our vehicles prior to each hire, ensures that all items are working as you leave our depots, Iconic motorhomes are maintained to the highest standards, unfortunately as with any product items can sometimes fail or be misunderstood by the operator, especially when on a longer hire.
We have a great back up team to ensue that in those circumstances you will never feel alone or abandoned.
The pump & sensors generally cause very few issues as they are of a top quality product with few moving parts.
PS The motorhome registration date of your motorhome was November 2017 :) and on the whole our prices are below our competitors who all offer inferior motorhomes.
