We've put our heart and soul into offering high-quality affordable campervans, coupled with exceptional personal service you won’t find with the big companies.
New Zealand is known as a nation full of independent small businesses - and we're one of them.
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 see you soon!

Epic campers is just wonderfull small company. We rented a self-contained campervan for two months and had time of our lifes.
Naturally, some problems occurred during that time (which were not Epic camper’s fault) but Andy was always really prompt to reply and helped as much as he could to solve the problem asap. His attitude towards customers is excellent and all you could ask for, so I highly recommend Epic campers if you want smooth holiday and enjoy your trip instead of solving possible problems on your own and arguing with your rental company.

We picked Andy and the team at Epic Campers for our 6-week tour of NZ, and we are extremely happy with our choice! The vans are compact, efficient, comfortable, and look nice. The service provided by Andy both before and during the trip is second to none, which allowed us to spend the entire 6 weeks with a mind completely at ease!
For 2 people looking for a great campervan experience, Epic Campers is the best and safest bet!
So impressed with the service we received from Andy at Epic Campers! So awesome to deal with someone who is passionate and proud of his business and wants to see you get the best out of your trip. The van itself was like brand new, well thought out design and worked really great for us. Very easy to drive and ran great on fuel.
I was also travelling with my toddler, Andy was incredibly accomodating with ensuring everything worked out great for us and we felt like we had everything we needed for what was an amazing trip. I would highly recommend Epic Campers!
Great customer service. Excellent open communication the whole experience. Before booking and tailoring a quote through to the end of the trip.
Great little van no complaints. Good on fuel, park it anywhere, comfy and cosy.
Had everything we needed. And I’m sure Andy can custom tailor anything for anyone else.
Great small camper van with a well built layout. The van had everything we needed and Andy spent time with us on collection to go through it all.
We spent 5 weeks travelling in our EPIC van. Andy was in touch to ensure there were no issues and was always available when needed.
The price was lower than the comparable vans from larger companies. We arranged drop off in Christchurch to match our flights.

We travelled for 5 weeks through New-Zealand with our Epic camper Phoebe. Andy explained everything when we picked up the van. He gave us some great tips and we could always reach out to him. Superb service. Everything was top notch!
We loved Phoebe! It really was EPIC!!!
Great experience, great van, great supportive and on the ball crew. It had everything we needed and was intelligently assembled with experience of people who have traveled in vans before. Clean, fresh new and functional. Andy was great, went above and beyond. Very accommodating, professional and on the ball. They put their back into it and are very capable. We had a van reservation fall through with a different company and were stranded in Auckland. Andy hooked us up with a very clean and awesome van, had an amazing experience. Would definitely recommend. They have the vibe of a small business which is interested in the experience and the customer, NOT the vibe of unmotivated hourly workers working under the thumb of a corporation aimed to take every possible dime while asking you to drive a billboard around the countryside. Epic campers was awesome!
Had the best experience and a great holiday with Epic Campers!
Andy was super helpful from the moment we booked. He was always contactable with any questions you may have and gave out great tips for our trip.
We spent about 10 days on the North Island touring the west coast and visiting some friends. The camper was easy to drive, fuel efficient and super fun to drive around in. The camper set up is well thought out, practical and simple yet has everything you could possibly need. The fridge was really handy and having fresh water all the time very useful too. I loved the layout of the bed and how easy it was to convert from lounge to bed, the mattress was really comfy too. The kitchen set up is super easy to access and has everything you need to cook up a storm on the road!
Great service and great experience, would highly recommend Epic Campers to anyone who is wanting to experience van life in NZ!
Andy and his team are a cut above the rest. Great customer service, friendly and couldn't do enough for you (Andy even lent me his areopress for two weeks).
I booked an Epic Camper whilst on a business trip to escape the soul-less routine of staying in hotel rooms. I'm so glad I did. Touring the North Island with it's incredible vistas and idealic locations gave me the ultimate feeling of freedom.
The campers are well thoughout set up with everything you need to freedom camp throughout the trip. It's easy to convert the area at bedtime and feels super comfortable and safe.
Andy creates a great all round experience for his customers whilst keeping his prices competitive,
I am already planning another trip and will be back to use one of Andy's fleet.

Having an Epic Campervan was a great experience. We were able to set the pick up and drop off hassle free. The van had a lot of amenities that made out while trip easier, like a converter plug that allowed us to charge our computer and camera batteries wherever we were. The benefit to hire a van from a family owned business is that you are dealing directly with them, and they will make sure to help you as best as they can.
We spent 10 days going around the North Island with our epic camper. 'Bessie' (the name of our camper) was very comfortable and easy to drive, in town and on the winding rural roads. The way the camper is organized inside made it easy to set up for the night and pack back up in the morning to head-out and explore. It is a small campervan but we knew that going in so that was well within our expectations.
Andy was a very generous host and got us all prepped and going. He was available to answer questions and had plenty of hints and tips for us. He gave an extra big blanket which was extremely useful given the fact it was still very early spring.
A perfect experience. Andy was helpful throughout the booking process and showed us everything we needed to know about the van before we left. He answered all of our questions about the van and gave us some tips on things to do while in New Zealand.
We had a 2 month long rental so unfortunately got a chip in the windscreen (like most people do when in New Zealand for this long!). Andy booked us into a garage straight away ensuring it was close to us and didn't interfere with our holiday plans.
Andy was available to call when needed throughout our 2 month trip and checked in to make sure everything was well. Picking up and dropping off the van was very easy.
I cannot recommend Epic Campers enough. The value for money is excellent, with the vans being young and in perfect condition for a very reasonable price compared to other companies.
Epic Campers responds:
Hey Emma, thanks so much for the kind words. We're super happy that you had such a good time exploring NZ. Thanks for being an awesome customer! All the best, Andy.
Epic campers was a perfect camper for our 3 week New Zealand Road trip. It's smaller size made it super easy to drive on New Zealand's curvy roads and perfect to park anywhere in and out of the cities. It also saved on gas money compared to bigger RV's. It is perfect for summertime free camping and excellent for holiday parks all year round. The bed was comfy and the drive was smooth. They gave us excellent personable and friendly service.
Epic Campers responds:
Thanks Joe, appreciate the review and glad you loved the camper! Cheers, Andy
