Default Motorhomes - advice please

Wondered if anyone could give me some advice, we are looking at buying a motorhome to really explore this beautiful country during the school holidays and lots of weekends. Having never owned one before what should I be looking out for or what is a must have item that we need the motorhome to have?

So far we know we want a permanent double bed in the back and a bed over the luton, a large fridge (need t keep that wine and beer cold!) and 4 full seat belts. Any good dealers out there or websites?, at the moment we are just going through trade me

It may be a thought to hire one for a few days first, this may give you a feel for your needs. Grabone did a deal last week I believe to hire one for five days.

"Permanent double bed in the back'" - sounds like my type of relaxing holiday.

you must definitely have either low expectations or a huge bank balance.
Motorhomes in NZ are so expensive it just isnt funny.


If you want to do the freedom camping thing you MUST have a toilet

Definitely suggest your rent one first so you can see what sort of thing you are after and that you really do like it.

As Justcol says they are so expensive its silly, we would love one but cant justify spending that sort of money on something that will sit in the driveway more than its used.
