Spaceships voted 9 out of 10 by Target (New Zealand TV)

TV3's Target was an award-winning consumer information show in New Zealand that ran until 2013.

They took a close look with their hidden cameras at how clean and how safe budget campervans really are - unbeknown to the Spaceships crew they "hired" Scrad one of our Beta Spaceships and put it under close inspection. The bed went under UV light, swabs were taken on all amenities and road safety checks were done by a qualified mechanic!

Spaceships were awarded a 9 out of 10 which took into consideration our service, vehicle facilities, road safety, cleanliness and cost.

When will you drive an award-winning campervan?

The Spaceships fleet has grown throughout the years. The award-winning concept of the original Spaceships campervan has been the inspiration for our other vehicles. We now have a wide range of campervans, so there's always a campervan that fits your travel plans and wishes.

Whether you're looking for a budget campervan, a more spacious campervan, a self-contained campervan or a campervan with more advanced features for camping or glamping, there's always an award-winning Spaceships campervan that will fit your travel plans!
