About this listing

FULLY SELF CONTAINED. EASY AIRPORT ACCESS. ALL BEDDING, TOWELS, COOK WARE ETC. INCLUDED. SLEEPS 2 ADULTS (plus optionally a child in the top) SuperNova is an ex rental Mercedes Benz designed by a boat builder. This means that she is super spacious and practical. The inside is 10cm higher than standard camper-vans, so if you are up to 1.90 m tall you can still stand tall inside. At the same time, she has a nice compact size which makes her easy to navigate and park. As a Diesel she is very economical to drive. The Road User Charges (RuC) are included for 200 km per day. If you drive more than that on average, you pay a small surcharge. The table/seating area in the back transforms into a double bed which suitably sleeps 2 adults. The area above can be easily set up as a double children's bed. If not in use, it is cleverly stowed away. We live near Christchurch Airport and could arrange to pick you up or to drop off SuperNova at the big Countdown Airport car-park for your convenience for a $25 charge. Please allow about 45 min for explanation and showing you all you need to know. If you like, we can go over your travel plans beforehand and give you our favorite spots, travel Apps and inside information. We have traveled both islands extensively and love sharing our camper-van experiences. SuperNova comes complete with all that is needed for a perfect holiday. Duvet, linen, towels, cookware, crockery, cutlery and camping table and chairs. Optionally to rent for a small fee are an outside gas wok/bbq, a tent, bike rack, camping mats and extra sleeping bags. SuperNova is a 2002 Mercedes Diesel, so she is slightly noisier than petrol vans. Having said that, she drives steady as! Pick up time from noon, drop off time until 2pm, unless negotiated differently. Please get in touch if you are interested in hearing more about SuperNova's availability or details. We love to hear from you!
