New Zealand is the perfect place to go camping. Our roads are easy to drive onto and they lead you to the most amazing sights in the world. Going glamping in New Zealand will take this experience to a whole new level.
What is glamping?
Glamping is a combination of ‘glamour’ and ‘camping’. It’s the more comfortable version of camping. You don’t have to go to a boring hotel for a luxurious experience. Glamping in an advanced campervan is perfect for people who love to enjoy the outdoors, yet with a higher level of comfort. It's camping 2.0
Glamping in New Zealand is considered to be top-of-the-line. It combines the fantastic scenery of this amazing country with a more luxurious lifestyle. And with Spaceships, you can see it all from the comfort of your more advanced & comfortable and yet easy-to-drive campervan.

Glamping campervans compared: Dream Sleeper Mini vs Dream Sleeper Mini Stealth
The Dream Sleeper Mini and Dream Sleeper Mini Stealth are the top-of-the-line campervans in the Spaceships New Zealand fleet. Although their setup and layout are identical, there are a few notable differences.
The Dream Sleeper Mini Stealth is an unbranded version of the Dream Sleeper Mini, lacking any stickers or logos on the vehicle. This means that you can travel incognito as a local, without advertising yourself as a tourist or visitor.
In addition, the Dream Sleeper Mini Stealth is a newer model with lower mileage than the standard Dream Sleeper Mini. Both models are ideal for glamping and comfortably accommodate two travellers with all the necessary sleeping and cooking equipment included.
Is a glamping road trip suitable for you?
If you enjoy the outdoors and camping but also value comfort and luxury, then glamping is the perfect option for you. Explore New Zealand in style. You’ll have a unique and adventurous experience that allows you to disconnect from your daily routine and connect with nature. Spaceships compact glamping campervans go where other big campervans or motorhomes can’t go.
Typical glamping road trip travellers may be couples or friends who are seeking a more memorable vacation with added luxurious benefits. Your road trip will have a higher level of comfort and convenience than a traditional backpacking or camping trip. You don’t need to have camping experience as long as you are looking for an adventurous yet comfortable way to explore New Zealand. Spaceships glamping campervans are easy to set up, so anyone can use them. And as there is no upper age limit, anyone 18 years or older with a valid driving licence can hire and drive a Spaceships campervan.
