About me

We are in our late sixties and love to travel around in our campervan. We mostly stay at free sites and NZMCA parks as members. We have been all over New Zealand with it and enjoy cycling and checking out interesting places.
We are coming to the UK for several months May to August 2023 and would be keen to swap time for a similar vehicle there. Our van can be made available when ever you would like to use it in NZ at any time by arrangement. A swap in mainland Europe would also be appealing if that suits anyone.

Vehicle Info

We have a 2001 model Mercedes Sprinter 2 berth campervan. An oldie but a goodie. This vehicle has been well used but everything works as it should. We use the self contained shower and toilet facilities regularly as well as the gas stove and refrigerator. It has a tow ball for mounting a bike rack and access through the rear door or front doors not the side door. Tanks need to be replenished and emptied every three days approximately. Solar power runs the fridge when parked up for a few days.
It is 5.9 metres long and powered by a 2184cc Diesel engine through a 5 speed manual gearbox. It is one of the most common van conversions in NZ an ex rental vehicle. Gas powered hot water heating, a shared toilet and shower compartment with a Thetford cassette system.

Vehicle Rules:
Not too many. Yes no smoking inside, no driving off road. It is old so it does need to be driven with that in mind, slow gear changing and no travelling over 100kph.
