How to Choose the Right Campervan for Your Roadtrip

​​​​​​Planning your holiday to the land of the long, white cloud but can’t quite figure out the right camper to hire? Don’t worry. We’ve got just the thing.

Getting to know your campervan 

There are lots of factors you need to take into account when choosing your vehicle, check out our tips to choosing your perfect campervan!

The first question you need to ask yourself is: how many people are going on this trip?

Our campervans can fit up to six people so tally up your family and friends. If you have more than six people, book two or more vehicles and you can sort out who goes in which vehicle later.

The second question is: would you rather have some extra space?

Even if there are two of you, you might prefer to book a campervan that sleeps four to six, to give you more space on those longer trips. So if you want more legroom, why not upgrade yourselves?

Does size matter?


When choosing your vehicle, you might think a larger campervan would be daunting to drive, but fear not! No matter a campervan's size, they’re easier to drive than it may seem - so try not to let size become a defining issue. All models have large side mirrors and built-in GPS, while some have reversing cameras, making your drive even smoother.

Toilet & shower?


Thinking of doing a bit of Freedom Camping? Well, you’ll definitely need a toilet and shower on-board to do so, without getting a fine from local councils. You’ll also need to ensure that your campervan is powered up, which means staying at a campground or holiday park with powered sites every other night. So budget your stays accordingly and book a camper with a toilet and shower included.

Are you staying in Holiday Parks the entire time? There are plenty of them around the islands, and if you’ve already booked your powered sites, maybe toilets and showers aren’t so important. Perhaps the old 'hold it ‘til we get there' attitude can be put to use.

While many of the campervans come with a standard range of equipment, some campervans have unique features of their own.
