Benefits of Travelling in a Campervan

Long trips can be a real bummer when you can’t barely move in your tiny car. What’s worse is getting stuck in traffic for hours without anything to eat and no place to take a nap. Thankfully, somebody thought of combining a vehicle and a trailer – alas the campervan was born! Now, travellers can comfortably stretch their legs, grab something to eat, and have a snooze anytime, anywhere.

When was the first motorhome invented?

The first motorhome originated in New York when Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company launched its Touring Landau model back in 1910. However, the Jennings company developed a campervan model that was easier to drive and has a better appearance. That RV opened doors to other motorhome manufacturing companies including Westfalia, Paralanian, and Bedford Dormobile.

Be one with nature

Camping is quite popular in New Zealand because of its vast outdoor spaces and scenic locations where you can park your campervan. Imagine waking up to the sounds of the waves and the rays of the golden sun or smelling the fresh grass and enjoying the spacious land. You can experience that by renting an RV here and driving off to Mount Maunganui Beach or Marlborough. If you’re a fan of the Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, then you can take a short drive to Matamata where you can find the set of the aforementioned films.

Food on wheels

There are some RVs that include a free kitchen kit when you rent them from our selected suppliers. If you’re travelling with your wife or mom, then you’re lucky to still get a taste of their specialty dishes even when you’re far away from home. You can let them cook while you do the driving; and just have a quick break to enjoy the food. You can also park your RV rental and enjoy a barbeque picnic. This is cheaper than dining out and more delicious too!

  • Best way to see Australia hands down! East Coast is obviously spectacular, but the rest of the country has some amazing things to see too 🙂

  • What’s the best scenic drive in NZ? I’m planning to go there this year.

    Great benefits! you can also stop anywhere.. Looking forward to doing a campervan road trip around Australia.

  • I think its important to note where you can stay over night in your campervan. I believe there are laws in Australia and NZ stopping you from just parking up and staying overnight on the side of the road.

  • Looks better than staying in a hotel. One thing’s for sure, the scenery won’t be a bore with all the moving around and all.
