I can't say much about the shipping aspect as I haven't had much shipped over here save for a few pairs of shoes and some eyeglasses.

As for sites, yeah, many, if not most, holiday parks are set up for parking your caravan and I imagine it wouldn't be much of a drama to find someplace to store your caravan when you aren't using it. A couple of houses on my street have caravans parked in the back of their property where it seems they are used as overflow for visitors.

Yes. it is possible for you to ship a caravan over here.
It will need a WOF which is the same as an MOT before you can legit. take it on the road. You will need to alter the electrics for it to pass a WOF.

Plenty of places for you to caravan .

I have absolutely no clue whatsoever about the costs of getting it over here etc but i can say that caravans are quite expensive here so it may be worth bringing it over

I have asked this question on another NZ forum, and an answer came back yesterday saying this person would definately send a caravan out again, it cost them approx £3,000 for everything, even someone to do all the paperwork and to get through MAF etc, they shipped it from Southhampton.

Caravans are very expensive over in NZ so they say it was worth doing. I will try and PM you the actual reply.
