New Zealand campervans that fit your travel plans: budget, space or comfort

Whether you’re looking for the cheapest campervan or a bit more luxury for your New Zealand road trip, we have a campervan that’s perfect for you. Choose from the following categories.

  • Beta - the original award-winning Spaceship - The features of this campervan are anything but standard, for instance, the fridge/freezer. It’s perfect for up to 4 travellers as it seats 4 and sleeps 2. It is also the budget option in the Spaceships fleet.
  • Beta 2S - the most spacious Spaceships campervan - More space and a more discrete look, that’s what this campervan model is all about. It seats & sleeps 2 travellers.
  • Dream Sleeper Mini - the comfort campervan - This campervan is made for glamping. It has the most advanced features (for instance a bigger fridge) and is still easy to drive. And it comes with even more features included, for example, a modern stereo with Bluetooth and a rearview camera built-in.
  • Dream Sleeper Mini Stealth - unbranded version of the comfort campervan. This campervan has the same advanced features as the Dream Sleeper Mini and is perfect for glamping. A bigger fridge/freeze, mosquito nets included, more USB ports and the easy-to-use kitchen at the back.
  • Self-contained campervan (Beta 2S Self-Contained) - The self-contained campervan Beta 2S SC is fully certified self-contained according to the latest rules & regulations. It is the first campervan category in the Spaceships fleet that comes with a toilet and all other features required by the self-containment certification process. It also comes with a solar panel on its roof for extra charging power. All this enables travellers to stay off the grid for longer and to fully explore the outer space of New Zealand.
