In Nelson, Nelson Region, New Zealand


Hi - we're based just out of Nelson on a beautiful farm. Leave your car safely here, or catch a brief taxi ride from the airport (book ahead and secure a $45, 65 minute flight from Auckland!). Locally we have access to some of the most amazing MTB trails, The Great Taste Trail, tramping - and it's just an awesome place to start a South Island road trip! Did I mention we're also at the center of New Zealand's wine and beer world - camp nearby, enjoy a drink and stroll back to your campervan. You're very welcome to spend a night to two on the farm if that suits your plans.

‘Scooby' has a smooth automatic gearbox with auto 2 wheel drive/4x4 drivetrain to help get you to those amazing bike/tramping carparks and out-of-the way locations. It has a gas-fired thermostatically controlled cabin heater to make sure you're toasty when you get up early in the morning to hit the track, or when you come back down tired and cold. I’ve camped at places like Mt Cook Village in the frost and snow, enjoyed a warm cabin while sitting inside and cooking a hot breakfast – and still been the first up to the Hooker Lake. Awesome - you can’t beat it - check out the stupendous scenery in the photo.

Of course ‘Scooby’ is brilliant for use in the summer as well, with air-con front and back and two electric sides doors for cross ventilation. Generally you prep and cook food when inside, but opening the rear door gives access to the cooker/sink as well. Fully compliant, with all the facilities you need for ONE person when FREEDOM camping in the van – HOWEVER there are 3 legal seats (seats with seatbelts) so you CAN take two other people and pitch the the optional 2 person tent in a campsite. Drives like a car on the highway and you can nip in to the supermarket carpark with ease. Also has a built in electronic Safe so you can keep your devices locked away. --Low mileage, smooth and comfortable --Access from the driving position into the living accommodation without needing to go outside --Electronic locking from inside --BYO bedding, but includes 1 bedsheet and pillow/pillow slips --Bluetooth --Inverter. OPTIONAL extras: 2 Person Tent, Roof Bars; Lockable Roof Box; Bike Rack; iPad (with GPS and CamperMate App).

House rules

Scooby is complied as a self-contained vehicle for ONE person when FREEDOM Camping. However Scooby can carry up to 3 people (including the driver). The two passengers sleep in the optional 2 person tent when camping in a paid-for tourist campsite, or other location where the tent is legally allowed to be pitched. No smoking inside please.
