Our GPS / SatNav for hire are all TomTom units that are easy to use. Just as easy as the one you use at home. And the biggest advantage vs using Google Maps is that it doesn't cost you any mobile data or roaming charges. Let our SatNav unit take you to all the amazing places New Zealand has to offer.
Charge Your Gadgets Pack: 240-volt mains plug ($40)
Can't travel without your gadgets? Hey, we totally understand. A laptop, smartphone, hairdryer and hair straightener are necessities of modern life for us. We do understand the importance of 240-volt.
Therefore, we've added the 240-volt mains plug to our list of campervan accessories. It will keep your gadgets powered up. It's a quality plug with built-in safety features and can be used at powered campsites along the way.
Only $40 flat fee per hire, which is cheap as chips. Hiring a mains plug on a campground or holiday park will cost you $20 per day. Get it at Spaceships for only $40 per hire.
Please note: the mains plug is an extension cable that connects to a powered campsite. You simply plug in your gadget(s) at the other end. Therefore you can only use this cable when staying at powered campsites. This cable DOES NOT connect to your Spaceship campervan! Spaceships don't need to be plugged in.
Seasonal campervan accessories for hire (package deals)
Whether you want to relax in summer or stay warm in winter, we have created special packs with accessories perfect for each season. These are for hire for a one-off fixed fee.
The summer pack provides you with all the campervan accessories that are important in summer. Our summer pack consists of:
- 1x Table and 2x chairs combo for those late-morning summer breakfasts or those gazing at the sunset sessions with a glass of wine and some cheese (summer love is in the air)
- 1x Solar shower for a refreshing start of the day
- 1x Chiller bag to keep drinks cool on a hike
You'll save $20 by going for the Sizzling Summer Pack. Check out the price list for each item in the combo deal:
- 1x camping table: $35
- 2x chair: $40 ($20 per chair)
- 1x solar shower: $25
- 1x chiller bag: $10
How does the solar shower work?
The solar shower (hire it separately or as part of the Summer Pack), is a lightweight bag made from non-toxic PVC. It can contain 20 litres of water. Fill it up and leave the bag in direct sunlight. The special material of the bag warms up the water. Hang the solar shower on the branch of a tree or on the tailgate of your Spaceship. Release the water and it's shower time. Easy as.
This Winter Warmer Pack consists of campervan accessories that will keep you warm on those chilly New Zealand winter evenings/nights. Here's what's in this winter pack:
- 2x hot water bottles (hotties)
- 1x Thermos for hot tea, coffee or soup wherever you go
- Extra duvet, snuggle up with this fluffy and warm duvet (and the one that's already in your campervan)
- 3x Extra gas canisters to heat some more soup or water for the hot water bottles
Hiring a campervan in winter is cheap and heaps of fun. Plus, there are fewer people on the road.
Snow chains ($80)
For those of you wanting to go up to the ski fields in winter. The New Zealand winter is an amazing season. You'll have an awesome time.
Heater Pack: $50 (to be used at powered campsites)
For those of you looking for even more warmth than the Winter Warmer Pack. If the extra duvet isn't enough to keep you warm, you can hire an oil heater and mains plug. When staying on powered campsites you can plug in the oil heater and use it to warm the vehicle even more.
- Just a heater: $20
- Just a 240V mains plug: $40
- Heater Pack combo: $50 (saves you $10)
But trust us when we say that for most campers the extra duvets in the above-mentioned Winter Warmer Pack are more than enough to keep you warm on cold winter nights in New Zealand.
We also have several accessories that you can purchase and over and over again on any road trip. Just as with the campervan accessories for hire, these items will make your trip easier or more fun. Have a look. You can buy these accessories when picking up your campervan.
Extra gas canisters ($12 for a set of 4)
Two gas canisters are included with every campervan hire. Each gas canister will last approximately 2 days when used 2 times a day (for the most important meals of the day: breakfast and dinner).
We strongly recommend pre-purchasing extra gas canisters to last for the duration of your hire. You wouldn't want to run out of gas just when you're about to cook a typical New Zealand breakfast (we call it 'brekkie') in a remote location.
No more eating cold baked beans or crunchy noodle soup because you've run out of gas. Simply buy extra gas canisters and you'll always have a hot meal, no matter where you are.
Pop-up pooper (purchase for $119)
The Pop-up Pooper utilises biodegradable bags/absorbent powder providing a clean and simple toilet solution for when you're on the road. Folds down flat into the included travel bag for maximum portability, yet weight rated to 150kg. 12 bag/powder refills are included.
- Easy to use portable toilet, pops up and folds down in seconds
- 150kg weight rated
- Includes 12 biodegradable bags & 12 packets of absorbent powder
- Includes zipper carry bag and removable inner liner
- Great for camping, travelling, emergencies and toilet training kids
The bags are biodegradable so can be buried or disposed of in Dump Stations - as a last resort they can also be flushed through a normal toilet.
Please note: adding a Pop-Up Pooper to your campervan does not make it self-contained!
