You’ve wanted to take this vacation for a long time now. You work hard and you deserve a break, and this holiday is your big chance to get away from it all for a while. After all, for as much as we’re all more connected than ever with the advent of the Internet and social media, there’s simply no substitute for having a good time in the great outdoors. Just one question remains, really—how are you going to get there? That’s quite a bit of mileage to be putting on your car, which is supposing your car can even handle that type of rough terrain in the first place.
That’s just one of the reasons that RV rentals have taken off in recent years. More and more people are realising that an RV is as essential to a modern camping trip as a tent, flashlight, and thirst for adventure are. As such, here are just a few things you’ll want to take into consideration when selecting campervan rentals in NZ.
When it comes to choosing campervans, size matters—in more ways than one. On the one hand, few things can sour a camping experience quite so fast as feeling cramped while being confined within a small campervan. On the other hand, a big behemoth of a beast can be difficult to drive. You thus want to pick a campervan or RV which fits your size requirements as perfectly as possible.
Different Vehicles for Different Terrain
Another thing you’ll want to keep in mind when renting a campervan is the type of terrain through which you’ll be driving. For example, if you’re looking to navigate city streets on your way to and from your camping site, you’ll probably want to pick a camper which is more manoeuvrable. On the other hand, if you’re looking to drive through denser areas with more foliage or rough terrain, you’re going to want a camper or RV which is up to that challenge. Different types of campers and RVs are drive-tested for and do better in different types of terrain.
Then there’s the more philosophical question of just what kind of camper you are in the first place. Do you think that camping means “roughing it” a little? Then you’ll want to find a more basic campervan in keeping with your philosophy. Are you a camper whose idea of “roughing it” means having to go without Wi-Fi for a few minutes—and would still like to avoid that if possible? Then you’ll want to check out the latest RVs in particular, which come equipped with everything from kitchens and couches to Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and much more, all of which contribute to that fantastic “home away from home” feeling.
Finally, you want to be sure that you’re getting your campervan from a team you can trust. That’s why you’ll want to rent your vehicle from a team with years or even decades’ worth of experience.
By doing so, you find and rent the perfect campervan or RV for your next excursion.
