We had the van for 3 weeks traveling all around the southeren island, from the uppermost northern tip to the most southern tip and the van always handled it with grace. The insides were also excellent and no complaints of the bed.

We rented a Cruzy Camper for 3 weeks for a fair price. Snoogs had everything you could wish for. But sadly we had a problem with the power steering when we came back from French Pass on a Saturday afternoon. Of course every workshop was closed until Monday morning. So that we are not stuck in Nelson, Kylie got us a rental car and we could spent the weekend at Golden Bay. When we came back, they checked Snoogs but couldn’t repair because of a missing spare part. Than we drove with Snoogs to Westport, met there with Kylie and Dan to change the camper.
It doesn‘t matter that the campers are old – they are well maintained and of course you can have a problem with a new camper too. But than it depends how your rental company is dealing with problems. Kylie and Dan made a perfect job and we even managed to stick on our route. So definitely 10 stars.

My girlfriend and I toured the South Island for 5 weeks in January and February 2018 in a Cruzy Camper, clocking just under 6,000 kilometers. Our van, TOAD II, was no young buck with over 470,000 kilometers, but was clean, ran well and got us around just fine. Kylie and Dan, were great to work with, and very responsive. We had two incidents (broken wheel lug and broken roof vent), which they fixed quickly and got us on our way. Thank you Cruzy Campers!

15 out of 10 points for Cruzy Campers!
With our trusty camper van we cruzed all over NZ in 10 weeks . Our van was somewhat older but superbly serviced, fully equiped (got a tent for hikes too) and with a great internal layout. We enjoyed every minute even on rainy days. Pick up, drop off and any communication inbetween (with the provided mobile phone!) was always smooth and friendly.
Kylie and Daniel run a highly professional yet friendly family rental service with a fair prize tag. They do go the extra mile when you're in trouble and we are so grateful for all they did when we were involved in a major accident. This is THE rental company we recommend to our friends and family!

We rented a van from Kylie and Daniel for a month on the South Island. Everything about the experience was amazing! We called and talked with Kylie personally before placing the order and she even helped add plans for our trip. When we arrived they met us at the airport with the van and spent plenty of time getting us ready for the road. The van was clean, dependable, and came with everything we needed. Cruzy Campers is managed professionally and I absolutely recommend them for your New Zealand adVANture!

My girlfriend and myself used a Cruzy Camper for 2 weeks on the North Island, and the camper van was an older model but worked amazingly and had everything we needed! The van was very reliable and we had no troubles whatsoever over the 2 weeks with it. This led to a great and amazing time in New Zealand.

Cruzy Campers were very friendly, helpful and keen to help us out at all times, and we were greeted on arrival at the airport and from the start felt very welcome and satisfied with the customer service. We really enjoyed the help and friendly staff Cruzy Campers provided and would without a doubt choose Cruzy Campers again when we tackle the South Island.

We rented from Cruzy because of the great reviews on Rankers. This was our third multi month trip to NZ in last 10 years. We had a 2002 Toyota diesel camper with 404,000 km. We drove 8,000 km in our 80 day rental. The camper was very clean with new cushion covers and even more household stuff than we could use. Cabinets were beat up but fully functional. It performed flawlessly. The Cruzy folks were great to work with and even had the camper "checked out" at a mechanics half way through our trip. For 80 days for folks in their 70s, it was a little small though we used the porta potti to freedom camp about 2/3 of our nights at great cost savings. This was possible because of the gas refrigerator so think about that when renting a vehicle. Cruzy pays the diesel tax so that is an added plus and we could go down all the wonderful gravel roads to get to the great scenic spots and hikes. With a newer camper you can't do that and you are stuck worrying about every little ding. Making up the bed in these things with sheets and duvets is a pain. Bring lightweight sleeping bags or liners and save yourself lots of work. Thanks again Cruzy for a great trip.

Not the newest, but fully equiped and self contained. Very nice and helpful staff. Got a problem with leaking roof which was resolved good and quick. Because of wet matras they even organised an appartment for a night.
We recommend Cruzy Campers to everyone who wants a priceworthy alternative!

Our diesel automatic HiAce Toyota Certified Self Contained campervan from Cruzy Campers made our 6 week tour of both Islands of New Zealand easy and comfortable for the two of us. While the camper wasn't new, it performed well. We had no mechanical problems with the van, and it was easy to drive on the sometimes quite narrow roads, and many narrow one way bridges- being a more typical van width than the wide style of campervan. The folks at Cruzy Campers had provided lots of housekeeping things that made it possible to just arrive at the airport, pick it up ( with a thorough but easy to understand orientation from Linda and Graham in Aukland), get groceries, and we were off. All the bedding and kitchen stuff was provided so it made packing for the trip simple- just personal items needed.We did find the lighting of the gas refrigerator took a lot of time until we got it serviced (just the dust blown out as far as I could tell) and then it would light on the first try (This is my only reason for not rating them a 10). First time campervan users need to know that this style of van doesn't have a built in toilet- it has a cassette type mini portable toilet that lives in a cupboard until you take it out and set it up somewhere. So we looked for freedom camp sites with toilets which we could find most of the time. The folks at Cruzy Campers were very helpful answering questions when I was exploring various companies and options.I would use them again.
