Hi

We are going to New Zealand in June 2008 and will be looking to purchase a motor home and travel the north and south islands for one year.

If anyone has any advise at all we would like to hear from you.

Thanks
tracy and phil

I envy you. We did 3 weeks in the south and 4 in the north and loved it.
There are loads of rental companies who might sell off their used van's after a few years, so check them out - they are likely to be well-used but also well maintained.

Hi,
TradeMe is the most popular way to sell stuff in NZ. It's your best way to find a second hand motorhome/campervan and not pay big bucks.

Good luck

PS:
Change the 'sort by' to lowest price, it's the best way to start.
Make sure you check the sellers selling history and whatever you do don't buy if it doesn't have a current warrent of fitness and registration, it'll be more headache that it's worth.
You will have to become a member but honestly, it's the best way to buy.
