Alpha Campervans
New Zealand is excellent for traveling with a camper . The roads are quiet , in many places you can fill water or dump dirty water and there are many camp sites, the Department of Conservation campsites being often simple but most beautiful.
Reception Friendly. There is coffee and a PC with free internet
reserveration Yes, via website or travel agent
price The rental fee depends on a lot of factors, like season, supply & demand, deals combined with travel , etc.
car We had the 4-berth campervan. Nice camper with large windows  at the back offering great views. Amenities include: large wardrobe, four burner stove, rather large sink, electronic safe, reasonably sized refrigerator (internal battery only) , shower / toilet. Car itself is a not very refined truck (Mitshubishi Canter) , it has remote control key and air conditioning , but not such things like warnings for forgotten lights or cruise control . Control and oversight is fine, the use of the clutch is fairly heavy. Diesel consumption is 1:7 to 1:8
beds Large bed which can be created from couch, chairs and table in the back . Especially when filling the gaps between the cushions somewhat the bed is great. Or use the (smaller) bed in the alcove above the driver’s cabine, of course it is relatively low but of good quality .
service Very good. Shuttle picked us up from from b & b and we were brought back to the next car hire (or airport) on returning the camper. Many service stations . A broken toilet was replaced the next day sent by express to a service station near our next destination. The gas tank is not full but as this was not communicated the filling costs were reimbursed immediately.
clean Good . Rather difficult to keep clean because there is a carpet in the van and there is no vacuum cleaner on board . Strictly non smoking
