Before you start your road trip

Before you start the engine of your Beta 2S it’s important to get the know the vehicle you’ll be using to explore New Zealand:

  • Instructions & tips about safe driving in New Zealand

Using the cooking gear

  • You’ll see all cooking items that can be found in the Beta 2S. Everything you’ll need to prepare a yummy meal, from pans and utensils to plates, forks and knives.
  • The video even shows you a simple yet yummy recipe. Perfect dish after a day of driving and/or hiking.
  • And some tips for setting up and using the portable gas cookers. Yes, there are portable so you can also place them on a picnic table along the way. As long as it’s on a flat and stable surface.

Sleeping in the Beta 2S campervan (and using the rear awning)

  • Setting up sleeping option #1: fully inside with the boot (back door) closed.
  • Or setting up the bed with the rear awning (a tent-like extension) for more space and extra ventilation. We call it sleeping option #2. Perfect for warm summer nights in New Zealand.
  • There’s also the optional sunshade for creating a bigger covered outdoor area. That one is also easy to set up.

Mechanical tips like replacing a tyre

  • How to check the oil level of the Beta 2S campervan
  • Checking tyre pressure and how to add air to get it up to the recommended tyre pressure again. Especially on a long road trip on gravel roads, you’ll need to check if the tyre pressure is still on the recommended level of 36 PSI.
  • In case of a flat tyre, the video shows you how to replace a tyre of the Beta 2S. Each Spaceships campervan category has some difference when it comes to replacing a tyre. Please watch the video for all details concerning the Beta 2S.
