Now it was time: We are on the wrong side (of the road) with a monster (Caravan, the first time we drive with something like this) on our journey.
Only in the caravan itself we have massive space problem. There is not much storage space and everything is very, very poky.
The toilet / shower is about as big as in an airplane. When driving squeak and creaks everywhere – that is definitely annoying.
One bed is less than 1.5 meter (5 feet) width, the second one almost square with also only 5 feed on the longer side.
We are already sure: This was a one time experience. Never again! The idea of being more independent, flexible and affordable with a camper has already proved wrong.
The campsites are expensive (40-80 NZD per night) – compared with 100-150 NZD you get a room in hotels. The rental is at least 50-70 NZD more expensive compared with larger cars and the camper needs much more fuel – so there are almost no cost benefits! But hotels are mostly central and campsites are somewhere off.
