Hoorah, we have a Vanmaison in our possession! To keep this post brief and helpful to anyone who might be thinking about doing the same, I’m just going to jot down the main how-to-buy-a-campervan-in-NZ facts. It’s not a kerfuffle at all. Promise.
I am going to convince you, a would-be New Zealand nomad, to avoid purchasing a large, ex-rental motorhome or an older already fitted-out campervan. You will eventually decide to buy your own Toyota Hiace van and kit it out yourself. I’m going to go full van on you in this post. You have been warned.
I sold all my stuff, bought a ticket to New Zealand and decided to live and work in a campervan for 6 months. Let me explain.
