Upgrade your rental car experience: unbranded campervans that look like a car

The best and most flexible way to discover New Zealand is by rental car or campervan. At Spaceships, we can now offer you a better rental car experience. Our unbranded vehicles are just like a rental car (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) from the outside but are a real campervan on the inside. Now you can explore New Zealand like a local, in a vehicle without any logos or stickers.

  • Beta 2S Stealth premium - an unbranded version of the Beta 2S campervan. The Beta 2S Stealth model has the same features (seats & sleeps 2), doesn't have a backseat (more space to move around) and comes with all cooking and sleeping gear. The biggest difference is: no logos at all on the Stealth vehicles.
  • Dream Sleeper Mini Stealth - an unbranded version of the famous Dream Sleeper Mini campervan. However, the DS Mini Stealth model is complete without logos and stickers so no one can tell that it is a rental vehicle. Explore New Zealand is a luxury unbranded vehicle that comes with more included than a regular rental car. All cooking & sleeping gear is included. 

All Stealth models drive just as easy as a regular rental car, they are equipped with automatic transmission. If camping isn't your cup of tea you can use the cooking equipment to make some coffee, heat up some soup or make a quick meal after a long day of hiking. Simply drive to a hotel, motel or hostel and park the car so you can spend the night in regular accommodation. And if you like to try camping for a night or two, go for it. The sleeping equipment is included for free.

Hire a car with more features than the average rental car

The Spaceships Rentals fleet keeps expanding, just like the universe. We now also offer hire cars that have more features than a regular rental car in New Zealand. These cars will make your road trip in New Zealand easier and cheaper.

  • Urban Explorer is a super-comfy 2-seater car that comes with cooking gear and a fridge included for free. This hire car with unlimited kilometres is super easy to drive (automatic transmission) and the extra features make it a joy to explore the outer space of New Zealand. Now there is no need to buy a cool box to keep snacks cool or to stop at cafes for lunch. Simple stock up at a supermarket, put your snacks & drinks in the fridge or storage area of the Urvan Explorer and create a tasty lunch in the middle of nowhere. This rental car makes picnicking easier than ever before. A quality car that costs less than a rental car but has more included for free, that's the Spaceships Urban Explorer.
  • Transporter is a 5-seater people mover (car). The perfect rental vehicle when travelling together, travelling with more than 2 people. This rental car has belted seating for up to 5 adults. Super affordable for a roadie with mates.
