Exceptional + Affordable: The Ultimate 2-Person Campervan Experience

We've put our heart and soul into offering high-quality, 2-person campervans, coupled with exceptional personal service you won’t find with the big companies.

Founded by Andy (a tech entrepreneur from Devon, UK, with a penchant for campervans) and partner in all things Cindy (an Aucklander with a lust for travel), EPIC Campers was set in motion after we swapped the London rat race for Auckland in 2015 and bought a campervan to explore our new home before starting jobs.

After renting out our camper AirBnB style, and spotting the big expensive vans of the best motorhome hire companies (and mostly underwhelming offerings of the affordable ones) we decided to take things from side-business to full-time gig after Andy's role came to an end in early 2018.

We're passionate about providing the best campervan experience at the best price by innovating, working smart and using technology to keep our overheads low.

We're excited for our journey ahead and equally so for yours too in this truly epic country we're proud to call home. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions - we hope to meet you soon!

If you are looking for a road trip in NZ for 2 person the best option is hire a van from Epic campers. We hired a van from Epic campers for 5 days. The van was really neat and clean. We visited Napier, Taupo and rotorua from Auckland. Drove almost 1300 k with no issues with the van.For 2 person their vans are realy well designed. (Andy )the owner was so humble and supportive. On our arrival everything was jept ready for us. I definitely gonna hire from epic campers next time.

Great company! The van was perfect for our week road trip and had everything we needed. We picked it up and it was spotless and felt almost brand new. It came with everything we needed and Andy was a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely use Epic Campers again.

We had an amazing experience with Epic Campers, Andy was really amazing, always willing to help, with this all covid thing we were not to sure if we were going to be able to travel, he was always willing to support even to refund our money in case we could not have gone to Auckland. We had Henry as a Van, best van ever, no problems at all, pretty much $80 for a full tank, very spacious in the back very well designed, in general was amazing our experience. Definitely we will travel around the South with Epic Campers soon.

Can't recommend EPIC Campers highly enough. Andy was fantastic to deal with and very accommodating. Having travelled NZ a couple of times in campers, the set up of the vans at EPIC is ingenious. Everything has a place which makes it easy to keep organised, yet van was small enough to go over the hills and park in towns without any issue. Perfect for our 2 month trip. Perfect van, perfect service. So glad we could use our money to support a small local NZ business. Infinitely better experience than the big name motorhome rental companies we have used in the part.

We had a great hiring experience from Andy and Epic Campers. Andy was very helpful from the start with a detailed brief of our camper upon pick up and he continued to support us going into the NZ lockdown. Our camper Dwight was extremely functional, clean and comfy everything we were hoping for. Setting up the camper for sleeping and cooking was simple and quick. Dwight was smaller than the majority of campers you will see on the road, but this was perfect for us. It made driving and parking very easy everywhere we went. We did over 3000kms and had no problems. We would highly recommend Epic Campers.

We hired a van for 3 weeks, which turned into 3 months as we continuously extended our tour of post-lockdown New Zealand. The personal and attentive service from the owner and his partner in Christchurch made the hire experience easy. We appreciated the quality of the kitchen instruments provided. Simple things like a great nonstick pan, sharp knives, and provided salt, pepper, and oil make it easier to adjust on your first nights in a campervan.

These Mazda vans are small, but this means they are incredibly easy to drive. No fussing about where to park and maneuvering. It's easy to underappreciate how the ease of driving a smaller vehicle contributes to a stress-free trip - we covered 5000kms to loop the south island, with many narrow, winding, or gravel roads in the mountains. While not large inside, it is possible to effectively seat 4 inside for a game of cards. Touring during winter, we were warm enough using all of the extra blankets provided (4 total) with some nights getting below 0 degrees.

The kitchen sets up outside, under the back door. On most nights we faced either cold, rain, or sandflies and chose to cook inside with our portable camping stove rather than open up the cabin to use the kitchen. The canopy cover for the rear area might be nice for those planning to rely on the provided kitchen set up.

Epic camper's vans are a great choice for an adventurous individual or couple that plans to cover a lot of distance and wants to freedom camp.

Hi there, we hired "Bonnie" from Andy so we could travel around the East Cape of NZ, I've lived in NZ all my life but never been around there. Andy obviously really cares about his customers and his vans, he explained how everything worked and off we went. New to camper vanning we also down loaded the Rankers app which was awesome providing us with excellent places to stay that were free, we only paid for one camp site because we wanted a hot shower before we got to our destination which was Gisborne. Anyway back to the trip, the van was great, just the right size for 2 people, I was really impressed with the filling up the clean water and emptying the grey water system- it was so easy, no lugging 25 litre containers anywhere, also the bed was so comfortable we had really good sleeps. The van itself was easy to drive and went really well. We also hired some roof racks for our Kayak and the rear cover for the back door which came in handy as we were travelling through winter and some pretty bad weather, we found it was very easy to set up so it was good for cooking when it was windy and wet. We had so much fun in winter thanks to these great camper vans, and we enjoyed our experience so much that we are going to buy our own camper so we can do more travelling around NZ. We did 1600 kms of trouble free travelling.

We took one of these vans over 2000ks in 2 weeks around the South Island and absolutely loved it. The van was very comfortable and we never had any troubles. Once again thanks Andy and team!

I rented a campervan from Andy based on a friend’s recommendation and I couldn’t have been happier! The vans were clean and organized with the layout well thought out. They also thought of everything you might need for your travels from a coffee press to salt and pepper. I had a great time exploring in the van and it wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work from Andy and his team. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent from them again in the future!

We hired a Van from Epic Campers for a week in June 2020 to go spend time away in our beautiful country. From the very start we were impressed with what Epic Campers vans had to offer, the vans are easy to drive, comfortable and the interior was so well thought out! We could tell that a lot of thought and passion had gone into decking out these vans. Even though it was winter the van was still so warm and cozy. We also appreciated the fast and clear communication from Andy from the very moment we booked our van. As first time camper-vanners it reassuring being given a full run-down on how everything worked in the van and having access to people to contact from Epic Campers round the clock should we have any issues. We would both highly recommend Epic Campers and woundnt hesitate to rent from them again in the future.

We booked with Andy after seeing seeing one of his vans Broadie our friend had rented prior, once level 2 began we started our adventure with Henry and loved it! It was super organized and Andy has put a lot of thought and care into his vans. Supporting local small businesses in this time is so important and we're so glad we chose epic!

Our campervan rental with EPIC campers was the most exceptional experience and gave us the opportunity to explore New Zealand the best way possible. Andy of EPIC campers was very helpful from the start - our options, additional equipment, functionality of the van and pricing was clear. We exchanged multiple e-mails with additional questions, and even asked if we could borrow some kitchen equipment before our rented trip, and Andy was always quick to reply and helped us out a lot. When starting our trip he took the time to explain everything, make sure all equipment was working and we knew how to operate it. You really feel that he wants to have his customers to have a good experience.
The van turned out to be perfect for our purposes. We had originally planned to rent a larger vehicle including built-in kitchen and sanitary facilities with a different company, but in retrospect we are glad that we came across EPIC campers. During our trip we came across all sizes of campervans and often valued the flexibility that comes with a smaller vehicle. You can park in spots for regular cars, need less space on (sometimes) crowded campgrounds, and the van is easier (and faster) to drive on the curvy NZ roads. Since we wanted to see as much as possible in our four weeks trip, this was definitely a bonus. And: not to forget - the EPIC camper was WAY cheaper than the campervans with built-in shower and kitchen. In comparison with the other option we were looking into, it was less than half the price. Despite being small, it had everything we needed. We had mostly nice weather, so we enjoyed cooking at the back of the vehicle, the power converter and multiple USB outlets helped us charge our phone, camera batteries and other electronics, and sleeping was super cosy. Vans are well designed for optimum use. For the saved $ we could regularly stay at the nicest campgrounds so we never felt we were missing anything. Would rent with EPIC campers again anytime.

Andy and crew are the very best! We visited New Zealand with our two year old from Alaska and Andy made it possible to comfortably camp in a van for 2 months!!! With a TODDLER!!! Everything about the van was clean and proper and beyond expectations. Andy made sure we had every thing we needed and communicated promptly when necessary. I can’t say enough good things about the crew and the fleet! They care about you and you will not be disappointed camping with Epic. Aptly named for a super rad company!!! Thanks Andy! Cheers 😊
