Trip Report Camper Vans in New Zealand

Jump to last reply

We've just come back from a wonderful 30 day vacation in New Zealand. What a great trip....except for our camper van rental. I'm just wondering if anyone else had as bad an experience as we did with a company called Happy Campers? I can't even begin to tell you how bad it was, but some of the main points were a broken gas gauge, no power cord for the van, and bedding material that smelled like a dead animal had been rolled in it. Numerous other problems but those three come to mind still, and when brought to their attention, returning after having been on the road, they said they couldn't do anything for us, that all the other vans were out as it was high season...end of story. As if it was my fault after having paid all of the rental up front that they couldn't do anything.
Anyway, I'd love to hear from others!
